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". 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!

Friday, friday everybody get down on... *cough* okay its Friday meaning one thing, four fantastically free games for the budget aware gamer in us all!

First head on the Freedom chopping block is Curiosity (The Concept) for Windows. Curiosity is a First Person Puzzle Platformer set in a beautiful sci-fi environment. The concept version features 6 levels, 3 unique environments, a tutorial level and a soundtrack by the up-and-coming EDM artist SirensCeol. The second brain container in the basket is GummyBro in the Sours Stole Christmas! for Windows. Play GummyBro through the snowy land of Gummy Island as he journeys to get Christmas back! The vile, odd-tasting Sours have stolen his family Christmas tree, along with the gifts and the Holiday mood! Nothing like nice and late holiday games to round up a Freedom Friday!


The heads continue to roll down the Freedom Hill with the third game Machine Runner for Windows. Machine Runner is a 2D, continuous-runner, platform game for the PC where you control R.0.B, a disgruntled Runner-Bot, tired of the daily drudgery of life in Robot-City. This is a fast-paced arcade game, where you will die quickly and often. The free release of the game features 16 pre-set randomly appearing foreground parts, which make up the continually scrolling foreground terrane. The last hea.. game making it's way to Freedom today is Donald Dowell and the Ghost of Barker Manor and aside from having a huge name you can play it on a Windows system. 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.

A good game. A little bit vague and obtuse with some of the puzzles, but I'm also not an experienced point and click gamer so it's a new thought process for me.

Really recommend it. Did a review on this site, and have done a Let's PLay on my channel:

If you mean the suitcase-safe-combo look at the shelves and you'll find a clue. If you mean the safe-deposit box You need something that's inside the suitcase.
Anyway, to avoid spoiling here, if yo need WT a good english one was made here:

Huh, well I'm definitely way above the system requirements. Not sure why it's taking 100% CPU usage. Still have the same issue.

Well, I've discovered the problem. It's actually just that the game freezes sometimes. As long as it's not freezing up I can play it fine.
