I found Painscreek Killings a nice game, but there are some things you need to know about this game before you decide that you want to play it.
You move through the game using the WASD keys. The mouse is used to turn while moving. The left mousebutton is used to interact and with right mouse button you look closer at things. Normal movement in the game is slow, but you can run using the left Shift key while moving. You'll have to do a lot of going from one place to another in the game and this means that there are a lot of loading screens and those loadings can take some time.
There are a number of keyboard keys you need for opening inventory, documents, maps and other stuff. All this wil by explaned by the game while playing. The game saves automaticaly after every loading, but you can also save when you quit the game if you use the option "Save and Quit". But.....you can't go back to an earlier save because every time a save is made the previous one will be overwritten.
Being killed in the game:
For the most part of the game you won't get killed, because the most part consists of gathering documents, diary's and codes for opening drawers and other stuff and you are all alone in the town. But......when you reach the last part of the game you can be killed an you'll probebly will get killed. The last part of the game starts when you are for the last time in the church and have listen to the messages on the taperecorder. You are in the secret attick of the church. When you have listen to the messages your run for life wil start and you can't save the game anymore.
You must now outrun the murderer and you have to be quick about it and this is a fairly long bit. Now you have a red life bar. When your life bar is empty, you die.
The murderer wil come after you and he has an axe. If the murderer catch up with you, he slams you with his axe and you loose a bit of life but you can go on. But the murderer will follow you again and if he catch you again he will hit you again. After four or five
times you die and this is Gameover. When you die you must load the last save.....the last autosave will put you back in the church, just before this whole run for life starts, so when you die you must go through this whole bit again from the start.
I thought I share this information with you. Dick and I wil do our best to guide you through this last bit of the game in our walkthrough, but that isn't finished yet
