Her Interactive is a video game company based in Bellevue, Washington. The company was founded as a division of American Laser Games, and spun off as an independent entity. It later bought out its former parent company. The company designs, develops and publishes adventure-mystery games, most of which are based on the Nancy Drew franchise.

History[edit]

The company was launched as a division of American Laser Games called "Games for Her Interactive" in May 1995.[1] Its first title was McKenzie & Co.[2] After finding initial success, the company became independent of American Laser Games and eventually bought out its former parent company. Her Interactive relocated to Bellevue, Washington in the late 1990s. Between 1998 and 2015, the company developed 32 entries in its Nancy Drew adventure-mystery game series.[3]

Stuart Moulder joined as CEO in May 2011 with a goal of diversifying the company's funding sources, before quitting in 2014. Penny Milliken replaced him that same year. In 2015, Her Interactive abruptly laid off half of its staff and its upcoming game, Nancy Drew: Midnight in Salem, has suffered repeated delays from its planned release at the end of 2015. As of 2018, it is still in development.[3]
