A series of DRM-free AdventureGames based on the ''NancyDrew'' novels, released mostly for the PC by [=HerInteractive=] starting in 1998. The company typically releases two new games a year, to much critical acclaim. As of 2017, the release of [[spoiler: ''Midnight In Salem'']] has been delayed due to an overhaul of the game engine and (reportedly) internal trouble at the company.

** There's one mentioned in passing in ''Secret of the Old Clock'' when you deliver a telegram to the [[ShoutOut nursery to]] [[Manga/PetShopOfHorrors a bloke called Seymour]]. It only bites, but merits a mention.

* CutenessProximity: In ''Ghost Dogs of Moon Lake,'' your reaction when you meet the eponymous dogs [[spoiler:being held in an underground pen]] is to remark on how the ghost dogs ''are'' a hoax, after all...[[TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything but if you go back to see them again,]] your subsequent reactions are to {{Squee}} and ask them who's a good dog, a good boy, yes they are!

* WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds: [[spoiler: Joseph Hughes]] from ''The Final Scene'' is at first content kidnapping Maya with the (admittedly reasonable) expectation that that the [[PoliceAreUseless police]] will surely rescue a hostage from a building that's ''about to be demolished''! No such luck. And during the game we find out [[spoiler: his only brother, [[YankTheDogsChain whom he'd been looking for]] [[{{Taerjerker}} is dead]]]]. And all through that [[spoiler: he's a genuinely NiceGuy who encourages Nancy to keep looking for her friend.]] Even in the climax where [[spoiler: he's fully prepared to let himself, Nancy and Maya get crushed to ''death'']] you still can't help but feel bad for [[spoiler: him as he was just a man desperate to hold on to the one thing in his life that mattered.]] Nancy [[AlasPoorVillain certainly did]], to the point where she was hoping Maya would [[StockholmSyndrome have sympathy for her captor]].
