It's been getting some pretty good reviews. Thanks, RCB!

I bought the new Carol Reed as soon as I got the email from Mykael this morning. I've installed it but haven't had a chance to look at it yet, so can't comment. I have all of his games, but have to admit that the last one "Profound Red" wasn't a favorite, so hoping this one will be more to my liking.

Drac - it is on offer at Steam at a discount of 20%. I got it because of the wonderful reviews. It is a bit expensive but a keeper. :)

These games never disappoint. They won't rock your world, but I always found them to be a pleasant experience. Relaxing with great visuals. I am about 3 or 4 games behind in the series. The wife loves them.

Another gamer pointed out to me that at the end of this game it says, "In remembrance of Len Green". Evidently he passed away back in Nov 2017. Not sure how many people knew him here.

So, who was Len Green? Don't think I've ever heard of him.

Heard the name before - wasn't he a Beta tester? Len Green rings such a bell but ...

I was more active from 2000-2010 on the forums. He pretty much was a beta-tester on dozens of indie 1st person AGs during that time. I'm not sure how active he remained after that. He was on all of the Ag forums. He was very active with the Carol Reed games and I think is listed as the creative consultant on many of them. He even appears in at least one of those game, though I can't remember which one. Heck, he was in his 80's at that time, so he lived into his mid-90s. He was definitely a character.

Welcome back, Ivinia! It's good to hear from you again, old buddy!

Len wrote many walkthroughs over the years and was active up until the last couple of years over at JA. He suffered from macular degeneration and had to quit writing and playing.

RIP Len - thanks for your contribution over the years. We appreciate all you did to help us get to the end goal at times - both as developers and players. Again, thanks! ♥

I mostly knew of Len through his colorful walkthroughs.
Like these

And I remember seeing his name on some games as beta tester -- probably on the Carol Reed games.

He's the only one who dared to do a walkthrough for Armed & Delirious.
Even the UHS Hints for the game were written by Len Green.
