About“Mary Kay Andrews: The Fixer Upper”

In“Mary Kay Andrews: The Fixer Upper”, you will join fledgling lobbyist Dempsey Jo Killebrew, framed for a crime and then fired by her unsavory boss, as she flees the high-powered world of Washington, D.C. for the hilarious surprises of small-town Guthrie, Georgia. Here, the now unemployed Dempsey Jo is tasked by her father with restoring the family’s recently inherited, and definitely fading, Victorian mansion into a real-estate cash cow.

Upon Dempsey Jo’s return to Guthrie, you must guide her through the house renovation process, as well as bring her boss to justice. As you search for items and clues to reveal the story and progress in this hidden object game, you will encounter over 10“mini-games” based on over 20 scenes from the book, as well as meet characters from the book who will unveil key information and assign important tasks.
