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:
Click to reveal..
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

Thank you for all of that helpful information about the game. I have moved your post over to Boomer Reviews, as it gives a good overview of what players can expect.

I also added spoiler tags to a portion of your information so that players who do not want to know too much about the story line can decide whether or not they want to see it before playing the game. wave

Thank you both. I've been looking at this game but I am waiting for it to go down in price before I really decide on it. Not sure about that ending bit but I prefer to know about that type of thing ahead of time.

About the ending:

Click to reveal..
The end is not extremely difficult if you move fast, if you hang around than you get hit with the axe.
When you move as soon as you can and quick than it is doable.

Hi Lion_1251

In the walkthrough I've named that last bit of the game "Your Run For Life" because that is what you have to do......I had to this bit a few times over because I allway's want to show the Bad Ending also in my (Our) walkthroughs. Because I have to make the screenshots while I'm playing, for me this "Run For Life" bit was a bit more difficult. I'm not so quick with the keyboard keys anymore and my brain needs a moment to command my hands to do the action

In any case......there is happy news for all who wants to play The Painscreek Killings because, dear Lion_1251, our walkthrough for this game is now finished and it is sitting on my site for everyone who wants to use it while playing the game. You can get it on www.pcgameswalkthroughs.nl

This year I have made 25 walkthroughs for 25 games, and that were the "big" games such as Obduction, Quern, The Eye's of Ara and others, so I'm very tired now and for no I'm "calling it a day" for this year.....Hopefully until next year.

Sounds like a well deserved rest!

I hope you can enjoy the games while trying to do the walkthroughs. I don't think I would.

Hi Oldbroad

I do enjoy the games while doing a walkthrough. It's even worse.....I can't realy play a game without trying to do a walkthrough for it, it's become kind of a second nature for me. When I have finished a walkthrough, I play the game one more time,for my own pleasure, and then I usualy get rid of it or my wife must want to play it too. If the game is DRRM free we give it away, if not the game get shredderd or returnt to the person who has given me the game to do the walkthrough for it

But there are some exceptions on this rule such as The 7the Guest, The 11th Hour, All of the Broken Sword games, Timelaps, The Gabriël Knight games ( I like the original Gabe 1 Sins of the Fathers much more than the remake because of the voice of Tim Curry and the original soundtrack in the game)and all of the Myst games. Those I stil have and once in a while I play them again.
