This second 2003 release in Her Interactive's highly respected point-and-click adventure series finds the famous young sleuth on a trip to the San Juan islands, invited for a whale-watching excursion by an acquaintance named Katie. Soon after her arrival, Nancy finds the small local village alive with excitement over lone killer whale that seems to have taken up residence in the harbor. Nancy soon realizes that there is more to this situation than meets the eye, as her new friend Katie seems to stand in the way of the villagers' attempts to deal with the rogue orca.
Nancy will have to meet and speak with a variety of the characters who inhabit the small island, and ultimately draw her own conclusions about what should be done. She'll need to make use of different modes of transportation to reach all the important locations on Deception Island, riding her bike to the Whale Center, investigating the village on foot, and exploring the surrounding waters in a kayak. Following the format of earlier Nancy Drew games from the developer, Danger on Deception Island offers simple controls and adjustable settings to appeal to a range of virtual crime-solvers. ~ T.J.
