Darryl Creed is funny. The opening letter made me laugh out loud; it's hilariously politically incorrect. The play is identical to Carol Reed without the talented photography and photoshop skill that turn snapshots into digital Monets.

So far I've gotten to a church. I didn't get anything out of a barrel earlier so I guess I've missed something.

I could not find the walk through in my download. There is a webpage that says file is no longer available.

I also could not figure out how to get the "thing" out of the barrel.

This has been hilarious so far. The comments are very creative. Great fun! And I found that 4th stamp after the earlier hint about how hard it was -- set me to thinking in a different way.

lazydaisy, the walkthrough is a text file inside the main program file, which for XP is at C:\Program Files\Darryl Creed. If you can't locate it I'll gladly e-mail you my own copy. Otherwise if you're stuck, post at Hints. happydance

Mad, the developer's e-mail addy is in the game's Read Me file.

I finished the game last night. It made me cackle.

The game is very "Carol Reedish". It makes me want another Carol Reed game soon! This game is not as polished as Mikael's games but it plays almost identically to his. I am enjoying it so far!Thanks Mikael!

Thanks, Rushes, for making me explore further hunting for the walkthrough. I finally found the "right" folder. I thought I installed it in my special "games" folder, and it appeared to be there,but was only the exe for the game. Thought I was playing from that location, but I was wrong. It installed on the C: drive in it's own folder. The walkthough etc. are there.

Don't know exactly how that all happened, but glad I found it. Thanks for encouraging me to persevere in the search.

Maybe something to do with earlier install errors because of firewall settings. IDK

If there is a sequel, I await a shady but perky girlfriend employed by an embassy or consulate and Creed's roommate's door exploding. Maybe Creed will have to move because of the silenced children or splintered door.

No, the door can't explode. Too fancy.

Darryl Creed was great fun. I never used the walkthrough even once because I saw the file only once, then couldn't relocate it. That's good. Too many casual, meaning too easy and the with walkthroughs, too, games make for a sloppy mind.

I wish some clever souls would do some GK parodies.

Just finished and enjoyed a lot... and would like to see more... BUT....

...because I don't care for the assassin theme, I'd like to see a Darryl Creed who has decided to act on the side of the 'good guys,' like his favorite female detective, Carol Reed.

The two characters could exist independently, as could the games be developed independently of each other. There could be a co-mingling of the characters and stories (like The Hardy Boys and Nancy Drew).

I'd pay for a kinder, gentler Darryl Creed, right along with my purchases for future Carol Reed Mysteries. Darryl could use his old assassin skills as protection (of himself & Carol), if needed, and keep his dark humor & wit, too (love that), but no more hired-killer stuff.

If I had my d'ruthers, that's what I'd like to see.grin

For those that weren't aware, the developers also did a couple other similar games which can be downloaded-
""The Room" and "The Apartment" is a first person adventure games with a twisted sense of humor. The whole games are created with a program called "Adventure Maker" and there isn't any coding/programming behind these games. They may appear a bit crude, but these are games that you should not take seriously and the whole point with them is to make you laugh.

Story
In "The Room" you are playing a character who is trapped in a room and have to escape.
In "The Apartment" you are playing the same character as in "The Room", but this time he have to escape from an apartment.
That's it."
The Room: A Prequel to The Apartment (This is the prequel to the main game.)

The Apartment: A Sequel to The Room: A Prequel to The Apartment (This is the main game)

A walkthru has been posted at the following website for both games-
