Teenage sleuth Nancy Drew is always on the job, and in The Captive Curse gamers help her get to the bottom of a series of creature sightings at a remote Bavarian castle. Legends say that a creature once terrorized the area, eventually killing a young woman, before seemingly disappearing. But with reports that the menace is back, Nancy must explore the castle, tap into security cameras, and uncover secret passages before the creature kills her too. It's not all life-and-death though, as players can also try out a German folk tale game, spend hard-earned Euros on trinkets in the castle store, and learn about German culture.

The Captive Curse is the 24th installment in the Nancy Drewpoint-and-click adventure game series by Her Interactive. The game is available for play on Microsoft Windows and Mac OS X platforms. It has an ESRB rating of E10+ for moments of mild violence and peril. Players take on the first-person view of fictional amateur sleuth Nancy Drew and must solve the mystery through interrogation of suspects, solving puzzles, and discovering clues. There are two levels of gameplay, Junior and Senior detective modes, each offering a different difficulty level of puzzles and hints, however neither of these changes affect the actual plot of the game. The game is loosely based on a book entitled Captive Witness (1981).
For centuries, a legendary monster has terrorized residents of a Bavarian castle, called Castle Finster, in Germany. According to the legend, the monster will vanish for years at a time until, without warning, it reappears to claim its next victim. So far every victim it has claimed has been a young woman, reputed to be wearing a peculiar jeweled necklace at the time of her disappearance. In the present day, young American detective Nancy Drew has been called in by the castle's owner to discover the truth behind recent monster sightings, before the monster can strike again. As Nancy delves deeper into the case, she begins to fear that someone in the castle plans for her to be the monster's next victim.
Additional voice work was performed by Daniel Christenson, Jennifer Pratt, Chiara Motley, Keri Healey, Scott Kirk, Nicole Fierstein, Adrienne MacIain, Kira Lauren, and Mark Waldstein.

Jinny Gudmundsen of USA Today rated it 3.5/4 stars and wrote, 'The Captive Curse isn't the best Nancy Drew mystery from Her Interactive, but it is a well constructed one that will get kids thinking while they are entertained.' Darcie King of Gamezebo rated it 4/5 stars and wrote that the game had excellent graphics and voice acting, but some players may be frustrated by the fact that dialogue cannot be skipped. Merlina McGovern of Adventure Gamers rated it 3/5 stars and wrote, 'While fans of the Brothers Grimm may at first be intrigued by the premise of this fairy tale Nancy Drew, The Captive Curse is too limited to do the folklore books any real justice.'
