This guide will teach you how to unlock the bonus content from preorder bonus editions of the game. This includes phone charms and games.
Opening the Cheat Menu
Did you know there is an internal cheat menu within each Nancy Drew game? Cool, right? Well from this cheat menu (100% legal by the way) you can enable those adorable phone charms and add some extra fun to your stay at Thornton Hall.
First you need to open up the game. Once you’ve made it to the main menu you need to press the following keys together. CTRL+SHIFT+TAB+C. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t. You can also try CTRL+SHIFT+TAB+C+Fn. Sometimes the Function key is needed. If you end up bringing up the Steam overlay; that’s okay. Hit the X and try again. It might take a few tries, but it will eventually come up. It should look something like this when done successfully.
Enabling Phone Charms
Click on the logic button on the left menu.
In the search box, type bonus and click the input box to checkmark it.
Click the save button and the menu will disappear.
Start the game as normal.
PS: The phone games icon will also be available on the phone because you turned on bonus content. However it will not work yet because when you click it all Nancy will do is say “stub.” You have to perform an extra step to fully enable the phone games. Follow the next chapter in the guide to fully enable those games.

Enabling Phone Games
Reopen the internal cheat menu.
CTRL+SHIFT+TAB+C or sometimes CTRL+SHIFT+TAB+C+Fn.
Then click on the logic button.
In the search field, type games and locate CELLPHONE_ENABLE_GAMES_FL. Click on the input box to checkmark it and then click on save.
The cheat menu will disappear and you can check your phone for the games.
That’s it. Enjoy your new content! ❤️
