Curator Review

By Just Good PC Games July 28, 2020

“Challenging enough for an experience puzzle solver, but designed to be enjoyed by all ages.
A little dated graphics wise, but you'll forgive it as the story goes on. Notebook recommended.”



“I found Message In a Haunted Mansion to be much better than its predecessors — it is a delightful game and one that I highly recommend for the entire family. The ease of gameplay, clean and simple interface, the strength of the plot, the interesting scenery and choice of difficulty levels all contributed to my overall rating.”
Universal Hint

“Ever since their games first came to my attention, I have been a staunch admirer of Her Interactive. I really like the fact that they design games for girls (that everyone can enjoy), with no stereotypes, no overt educational value, and absolute respect for girls’ intellectual abilities. A lofty goal to be sure, and well-met, but was Message in a Haunted Mansion actually fun? I think so! I had a great time playing it!”

“Message in a Haunted Mansion scores especially high in the area of personal identification. Role playing is at the heart of the game. The user becomes Nancy, becomes an amateur sleuth, becomes the person peeking into suitcases and musty drawers.”

About This Game

Discover who — or what — is behind the mysterious accidents in a house full of secrets!
Nancy Drew is invited, by a friend, to San Francisco to assist in the renovation of a Victorian mansion. But there are other uninvited guests, visitors from the past–spirits who want the place all to themselves. Nancy suspects that there is another force at work: greed. In a house full of trap doors and secret tunnels, breaking glass and suspicious fires, one misstep and Nancy won’t stand a ghost of a chance in Nancy Drew: Message in a Haunted Mansion!
