Curse of Blackmoor Manor is the eleventh game in the Nancy Drew adventure series. It is based on Nancy Drew Digest #77: The Bluebeard Room. It was released October 25, 2004. It is also noticeably the first game that Bess and George cannot be called and Ned's first game since The Final Scene.

PlotEdit

Linda Petrov, the daughter of Nancy's neighbor, recently married British diplomat Hugh Penvellyn and moved to his estate Blackmoor Manor. Ever since Linda went to Blackmoor, though, she's been acting strange - and now she's staying in her room, hiding behind a curtain and refusing to let anyone see her. At the request of Linda's mother, Nancy travels to England to investigate the matter.

CharactersEdit

Linda PenvellynEdit

Linda is a mysterious figure, hiding behind her canopy bed's curtains in her bedroom. She's moody and often unfriendly toward Nancy, telling her firmly that she should leave the manor. She frequently refuses to speak to Nancy any further if the detective presses too hard.

Mrs. Leticia DrakeEdit

Mrs. Drake is Hugh's aunt, a brusque and efficient woman. She acts as the head housekeeper of Blackmoor Manor, and is devoted to keeping it in good order. She adores plants and is reliably found in the Manor's conservatory.

Jane PenvellynEdit

Jane is Hugh's twelve-year-old daughter from a former marriage. She feels a little frightened by Blackmoor Manor, and also claims to have seen mysterious things.

Nigel MookerjeeEdit

Nigel is a historian and author, visiting the manor in order to research the Penvellyns for his newest book. He sets up shop in the Manor library to help his research.

Ethel BossinyEdit

Ethel is Jane's tutor, teaching her subjects such as mathematics, Latin, and history. The Bossiny family has acted as the Penvellyns' tutors for generations and she is no different. She was hired by Mrs. Drake. Nancy occasionally bumps into her.

Phone FriendsEdit

Nancy uses a cell phone which can be accessed by an icon at the bottom of the screen. She can get advice from Blackmoor Manor's parrot, Loulou, if she is a Junior Detective.

Ned NickersonEdit

Ned is Nancy's boyfriend. He can be called for hints.

Hugh PenvellynEdit

Hugh is Linda's husband, away on diplomatic business. Nancy can speak to him about Linda to find out more regarding the situation.

Mrs. PetrovEdit

Mrs. Petrov is Nancy's neighbor, who wants her to find out why her daughter Linda is acting strange.

DVD VersionEdit

CURDVD
In 2007 a version of this game that could be played on your TV screen with a DVD player was released. It came with a PC version of The Haunted Carousel. It is stylized similarly to the original interface of the games. There is the small blue border around the game window like in the PC version of this game, but there is a text box below it, and to the right, where the inventory would be in the old interface, is the inventory icon with the hammer and wrench surrounded by four directional arrows. The cursor (which is moved with the directional keys on the remote or keyboard) starts out in the game window if there is something to interact with (a white hand, a detailed yellow magnifying glass or a red speech bubble with a question mark). Otherwise, it is on the inventory icon, which is where it goes if it is moved below the game window in a scene where interaction is possible. From there, the directional keys can be pressed to move to another scene. Using the inventory button will open up the inventory like in the PC version, but on the tabs where there would be all, viewable, or portable items, Nancy can access the inventory, her journal, her task list, her cell phone and the menu. Like the Message in a Haunted Mansion Gameboy Advance game, this game is in chapters (10) and gives a password at the end of each chapter. It can not be saved in the middle of one.
