I don't know if this has been posted before, to make sure I'll just post it anyway.

Fate by Numbers is an FMV adventuregame in the film noir style.
You will find all the information at the homepage .

But beware the filesize is pretty big.

Ok, I downloaded it, but can't open it. It's a torrent file. What do you use to open a torrent file?

This is the BIG version. There's also a "small" version which is just under 800mb, but that one wouldn't run for me, so I give you the BIG version.

The download contains an .iso image file, which will need to be extracted or mounted with a virtual CD drive, or written to a DVD.

Complicated I know. Happy hunting. luck

Thanks Derman and Chief wave

I've got it downloading but if I have to go hunting that will turn it into a hubby project. I can write to a DVD, but don't have a virtual CD drive sad I can unzip and extract when pushed.

But beyond that, I turn it over to hubby. That way, if my computer blows up and looses it's mind, its all his fault rotfl

I downloaded the big iso file and put it on a DVD. Now what?
I answered my own question. Found an ISO Extractor then I was able to install the game. I love that the detective is a woman! This is quite fun. Thanks!

You have to "burn image" when making the DVD, selecting the .iso as your image.

Simply burning the file won't work.

I tried to get this game to work, but I guess I am not doing it right. Maybe someone could put on here a series of directions on how to download it and then what to do.

Wow! I just downloaded it and installed it and, so far, am impressed. For a free game this amazing. I've only played about 5 or 10 minutes but I'm really liking it so far. It even has a hint feature that I'm sure I will be taking advantage of.

Koala, download it from Gamershell. It does take awhile. Then unzip it. Then you need to burn it to a disk as an Image (not data), or else use a virtual drive or an Iso Extractor.

Hubby installed mine using the virtual drive.

I just did the downloading, so really can't tell you how to use the virtual drive but I know he downloaded and used DAEMON tools to do it.

luck

Hey Sly One. I've played through both endings and really liked the game. The black and white really adds to the Noir style ambience. It really is well made for a free game, along with 'Out Of Order', an animated but large game.
