Got the download and burned my disc, ready to start playing. I really appreciate being able to burn the game to a disc, I really like having a physical copy. Thank you Mikael.

I'm loving the game so far. And I like the way one of the guitars plays a little bit of a Carol Reed theme. smile

I like that guitar too Marian.

I didn't think I'd be starting the game today but I played for just under 2 hours.

I'm not sure if I've ever played a Carol Reed game, can these be played in any order , or do you lose something if you do it that way? In otherwords, if I start with this game, will I be missing some important info from a prior game?

Thanks,
Louis

They can be played in any order. There are, however, some recurring characters within the games and an occasional reference to a previous game, so if that would bother you, I would start at the beginning and go from there.

Mikael (the developer) says in a lot of the game descriptions that it is not necessary to have played previous games in order to enjoy whatever particular game you are thinking of playing.

actually, looking at the screen shots, I believe I have played Remedy, but I don't really remember much about it. Maybe I should just do them in order after that, or is there one in the series that really stands out?

I think we all have different favourites in the series, so hard to answer. I like some more than others, but I enjoy playing them in order anyway. It's not just about the characters but also watching how the games develops and get improved one after the other. So for me I see them all together and wouldn't want to separate them, but that's me. smile

I really like the early games, so I would recommend playing them in order. The latest one is my favourite right now though. The story was very well written I felt. So it all depends of what kind of gamer you are I suppose. Hope you enjoy whatever one you try! thumbsup

I just purchased this game and received an email notification that I had. However, I don't see anywhere to download it. I sent Mikael an email asking about this a few minutes ago.

Thanks for any help.

Laurette, Mikael will send you an email with the download link after you have paid for the game. His website says you will receive that email within 12 hours, but I have never had to wait anywhere near that long for it. Sometimes I wonder if/when Mikael ever sleeps. grin

Got mine the day... the minute after I received the email from Mikael! I, too, can't wait to visit Sweden again.

I just finished Hope Springs Eternal, good game and not too long. I did need to resort to a walk thru for a few puzzles, but was mostly able to solve them on my own. I like the artwork, but there are a lot of scenes with no interaction available, more so than most other games I've played.

Do the later games in the series, including "Profound Red" use the same 'game engine' with the same look & feel? One thing I would have liked is for video when speaking to characters in the game, as opposed to just still photos with voice overs.

Thanks!

All Carol Reed games are a photograph tour of interesting places in Sweden. They all have the as you say: "same look and feel". The storyline (historical and unique) and mystery combined with the tour make the Carol Reed games what it is.
