Interesting, I wonder if there is a tutorial, or how hard it is to learn. I used to work in IT and have programming experience, but never for game development. Using photographs means I wouldn't have to do a lot of animation. I might download and take a look at it.

There's a tutorial in the engine, yes. And if you click on "resources" at the top of the page, there are more help there. There's a forum as well. If you have experience, I'm sure you can read it. As I understand it, it's a very good engine and you can do a lot of stuff when you understand the coding. Mikael might have something to say about this, he's worked with the engine a long time now. I'm just a noob. smile

Thanks for the info, Mikael!
And it was my review mentioning 'obvious' use of colors smile Indeed, too many deep red shades in that club...

Oh, I hope the new owner of the allotment realizes what a piece of history he or she owns - and will establish there a Carol Reed museum smile

If only because we won't allow it !!!!

I could be wrong, but I think Mikael meant retirement in terms of his day job - not his Carol Reed game development.
I certainly hope so! wave

So there are 3 I need to get. I just finished Amber's Blood and just installed Cold Case Summer.

Are they not available on disks anymore? None of the Carol Reed games I have were downloaded. I like having the disk.

Digital versions only are now sold. Mikael explained that this was due to some new EU regulations, I believe, that would make selling physical disks more problematic for him. He does, however, offer artwork to download for a DVD case well as for the DVD itself, for Shades of Black and Profound Red.

No, no disks anymore. There are new rules regarding shipping, so you have to burn your own disk if you want one. Mikael have made covers for the games that can be downloaded though.

EDIT. Man , missed it by 8 seconds lol

Your help is always appreciated, Kim - and you know more about all of this than I do, although I am learning (presently playing through all the Carol Reed games - some for a replay and some for the first time!). joy grin

Well, about the legal stuff I WILL perhaps know more, but I'm not finished with the game yet, so for now I just have a clue about stuff sort of. wink

Regarding the games, I have played them a lot, but on the other hand, my memory is not great, so you can easily compete with me anyway. lol
So first time for some? I wish I could play them for the first time again. Well, all but one. There's one of them that almost made me fall of my chair lol. Won't say which, just in case ...

Hahaha, well guys, I find it extremely obvious of course as to what thing in what game made me fall off my chair (and that is putting it mildly. Perhaps it wasn't that obvious to you? It's the only time so far that I've had to check if I'd taken my medicine for my blood pressure that day. If that helps?
Perhaps I'm just more easily scared? I mean, you sometimes jump a bit, but this was worse than that. For me that is. smile

Tell me, what scared YOU most so far?

Haha, Well OK, I'll tell you. I actually thought you would all know what I meant, but apparently not.
The part I found most horrific was...



Click to reveal..
...when I was knocked down in the tunnels (Cold Case Summer). I hate that part even now, although I know what will happen.


I have been beta-testing the last two games for Mikael, but even though I beg him to tell me if there's any scary moments, he refuses to tell me! I am pretty sour about that, but what can I do? Well, I DO know what to do, pay him back in my own game of course. laugh
But seriously, it is what it is. I love the games and I just have to live with the scares. sherlock

Hm. Thanks for telling us what/where. I've played all the games and there were a couple of those moments but I couldn't tell you which games or where in the game.

Yeah, I remember that many players commented on that scene. But even more on the FOLLOWING scene. I even received one or two complaints, since it "broke the serenity of the game". That might very well be true, but if so, it added to the shock effect!
