For the first time ever, Mac users will be able to experience the thrills of being Nancy Drew. Her Interactive released Nancy Drew: Trail of the Twister for Mac users by using TransGaming’s (TSX-V: TNG) Cider Portability Engine. What’s even better, is that Her Interactive published Nancy Drew: Trail of the Twister as a duel format disc, playable on both Windows PCs and Mac computers!
Nancy Drew goes undercover as a competitive storm chaser in this new mystery, set in Oklahoma, (where I live) during the tornado season. Teams are competing for a $100,000,000 prize for discovering a prediction formula for tornados, but something is not quite right… To solve the mystery of who is sabotaging the storm chasing team, Nancy is thrust into a world of wild weather, high technology, secret conversations, mysterious dealings, and ulterior motives.
