The Special Edition of Dirk Dashing: Secret Agent! has been released!

I have ported the original game to the new Dirk 2 engine, so it looks, sounds, and plays better than ever! I've also added 8 brand new levels and made hundreds of tweaks to the existing levels.

You can download a free demo of the new version from http://www.dirkdashing.com

There's also a new strategy guide available for the game. This 128-page electronic booklet includes full-color maps for all 38 levels, walkthroughs, conceptual art, and more! You can download a free sample of the guide and purchase it from here: http://www.dirkdashing.com/dirkdashing1guide.htm

This year marks my 10th anniversary of professional game development, so it's fitting that my first Dirk Dashing game has received a major upgrade. This game (and its sequel) really reflect me, as a person - who I am, and what I like - my love of comic books and classic gaming, my sense of humor, my art, my style of story-telling, and more. The Dirk Dashing games are the kinds of games that I've always wanted to make, and I'm grateful that I've had the opportunity. I hope I can continue to make more of them, because I've got so many other stories I want to tell - not just about Dirk Dashing but about Rick Rocket and some other wonderful characters you haven't even met yet.

I hope you enjoy the game. And "thank you" to everyone who has supported me over the years by buying my games and telling your friends about them! I couldn't keep doing this without you!

Sincerely,

Troy Hepfner
My Game Company

This is my comment on this article: Awesome that an actual company came here to post about their product.  I'd buy, but right now struggling to make ends meet.

I understand. Thanks for commenting!

I'm a Linux user too, and have supported Linux versions of my games for 7 years. In fact, Dirk Dashing was actually the very first game I released on Linux, and it received a lot of press back then. Now Steam gets all the press! haha! But that's ok - I'm just glad to finally see a lot of great new games coming to Linux.

Hey, this game looks cool but the website is a bit confusing for me. Where (on the website) can I purchase this game?

Thanks!

Hm. Clicking the game's image on the home page should take you to the game's page here:
http://www.dirkdashing.com/dirkdashing.htm

There's a Buy Now button near the top left corner of that page.

Thank you, kindly! I appreciate the privilege of posting my news!

And thanks to everyone who has been purchasing. I just shared with Liam on Twitter that so far 2/3 of my Dirk Dashing Special Edition sales are for the Linux version, and my total sales today have already exceeded what I earned in the entire month of January! Much appreciated!
