Donald Dowell and the Ghost of Barker Manor is an old-style point-and-click adventure game, inspired by the great Sierra and Lucas 90's classics.  It has an old-fashion graphic style, totally hand-drawn. The drawings were scanned and colored with simple photo-editing programs. Game interface is old style too (maybe not like current games, but great fascination for old-gamers), inspired by old Sierra and Lucas games (such as Sam & Max). The dialogues, the characters and the situations have a sense of humor inspired by games like "Day of the Tentacle" or "Monkey Island".

STORY

Donald Dowell is a nice old man in his eighties, retired for many years.  Donald s life, except for his "intolerable" wife, is quiet.  But Donald feels empty. He has the socalled retiree's syndrome : he s bored to death!  The only way to cure his boredom is TO GO BACK TO WORK.

After many hours spent in his city, trying to get hired for various jobs, he finally finds his calling: to be a GHOSTBUSTER!

Donald will try to become Bob Delano s assistant (the most famous occult detective in Ireland), be involved in the investigation of Barker Manor and, hopefully, solve the mystery.

A very silly, yet exciting point and click game. I find myself laughing a lot of the times by its comedy, which is both cheesy and corny but in a fun way. This game is definitely a great break on the horror game genres if you're still looking for something supernatural to play. Feel free to follow my gameplay of the game:

I love this game. It reminds me of a game I used to play called Maniac Mansion on the original NES. I love games like this! I am right now currently making a Let's Play video for youtube and wanted to share this game with everyone, if it is alright with you. Thanks for the great game. I am really enjoying it.
