This is, without exaggeration, the most fun I've had this year. It's a freeware game called "Darryl Creed", and is a parody of the Carol Reed games. (I might add that I'm the developer of the Carol Reed games, for those who don't know).

It's made by a Swedish team, and set in the town Uddevalla.

I'm surprised that I hadn't heard of this game before, since it's been out since August 2009.

Be warned that there is some violence in the game. It's not realistic though, and no blood is visible. There is also some mild swearing.

Unfortunately, the sound doesn't work on Windows 7.

Download the game from here:

Glad they made a fun parody and that you don't mind. I'll for sure be checking it out. Thanks for the headsup and I too am surprised no one here has posted about it yet.

Thanks, Mikael. Just playing Blue Madonna which I won here pn GB. An excellent game. All the Carol Reed games are my favorites, can't pick between them.

The game is absolutely playable without sound. I did so myself the first time.

I forgot to mention that a walkthrough is in the game folder.

You know you've hit the 'Big Time' when someone does a parody of your game.

I'd have never found that 4th stamp without the walkthrough.

I can't get the download to install.

WinXP------Any ideas what is happening?

Edit: Got it all figured out -- Firewall/Defense settings caused my issues. All's good now.

Thanks for that link, Mikael, I will be downloading shortly thumbsup

Played and enjoyed ALL your games and am sure I'll be entertained by the "parody" as well lol

However, I do hope you are busy working on the next "real" Carol Reed game wink

As they say, "Imitation is the greatest form of flattery"... (tho' IMO, it's just one of many). I just DL'd "Darryl Creed" & can't wait to see what kind of parody has be made of our Carol ! grin

Update: Just began playing. No rough stuff yet... and I've had several laughs from the get-go... the humor is 'dark-ish', subtle, & funny (..noisy kids that used to play outside no longer being a problem..) and it's definitely from a man's POV (very unlike Carol). Nice 'heads up' mention from Darryl to Carol, as well. I'm really enjoying this trip through another part of Sweden; through another's eyes... though I'm still waiting for this lovely 'Calm' to come to an end... as our 'hero' gets to 'work'.

It's nice to be important but it is much more important to be nice.
