    I'm pleased to announce that the Special Edition of Dirk Dashing: Secret Agent! has been released for Windows, Mac, and Linux!

    I've 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/colleagues/customers about them! I couldn't keep doing this without you!

    Sincerely,

    Troy Hepfner
