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.

That's Strange... It seems like it didn't finish the download 'cause it's only one zip file.
Anyway no problem.

Hi,
What's wrong?
If all's correct, You have to extract the zip file. You'll get a folder called Donald_Dowell. Inside you'll find a file "Setup.exe".
Just launch that file and the game will be installed on your PC (OS Windows)
