Here is a link to this Free game: Donald Dowell and the Ghost of Barker Manor.


Here is the description of the game:

Donald is a nice old man in his eighties, retired for many years. Donald's life is quiet,but he feels empty. He has the so called retiree's syndrome: he is bored to death! The only way to cure his boredom is TO GO BACK TO WORK. After trying to get hired for various jobs, he finally finds his calling:to be a GHOSTBUSTER!


Have fun. santadance

From another blurb:

Quote:
We are proud to inform you that “Donald Dowell and the ghost of Barker Manor”, a free indie point and click game, has just been released in its English version (you can download it here).

The game has been developed by the Italian team of ApeMarina and only later translated to English by the localization team of RuM Corp.(se) Localisation Pro. In Italy, where Donald was released (in its Italian version) in May 2013, the game has been highly appreciated by point and clickers.

You can get in touch both with ApeMarina (http://apemarina.altervista.org/) and RuM Corp.(se) (www.rumcorpse.com): any kind of feedback is absolutely welcome!

Richard,

Use Google translate on this Italian Text walkthrough.
That might help. There's an Italian video that you can follow also.

Hi everybody,
My name is Andrea and I'm the Developer of the game.
First of all, thank you so much for talking and opening a thread about it.

A friend of mine told me you were looking for walkthrough.... so I decided to subscribe an account.

At the moment there are text walkthrough in Italian and Dutch (the last one is linked in our website in the game page); there are also two video-walkthrough made by fan. They are both in italian. You can find links to those you-tube-videos in our website.

Cheers
Andrea
