Save the world from the forces of E.V.I.L!

For immediate release

October 6, 2006

My Game Company is pleased to announce the release of Dirk Dashing: Secret Agent 1.0, our first side-scrolling platform game featuring the world's greatest cartoon super spy!

Dirk Dashing is the number one operative in the top-secret organization called G.O.O.D. (Government Operatives On Duty), whose mission is to protect the world from terrorists and power-mad megalomaniacs. His missions take him to many exotic locales, where he must face dangerous enemies, avoid traps, and solve baffling puzzles in order to save the day!

As Dirk Dashing, you have been assigned to recover the seven largest diamonds in the world, which have been stolen from a museum exhibit by the international jewel thief, Pique Pockette. Your mission takes you to the Bavarian Alps of Southern Germany, where you will explore thirty spectacular, hand-painted levels in search of the stolen diamonds. Along the way, you will collect stolen loot and battle a horde of E.V.I.L. agents who are also hunting for the diamonds.

Dirk Dashing features:

- Non-violent gameplay that is fresh and fun

- 30 huge levels to explore, including 3 secret levels - each level is packed with secret areas and hidden treasures

- Cool spy gadgets that help you complete your mission

- A wide variety of hand-drawn, animated characters

- Spectacular hand-painted graphics, done with acrylic paints and watercolors

- Parallax scrolling with up to 16 graphic layers, for an exciting 3D look

- A rich collection of zany cartoon sound effects

- An original, upbeat music soundtrack

- Play using keyboard, joystick, or game pad

- Ability to save your game progress at any point

"Dirk Dashing proves that an action game doesn't need violence to be fun," said Troy Hepfner, President of My Game Company. "This game has generated a lot of excitement from families who have written us, looking for wholesome alternatives for their kids. Dirk Dashing provides a lot of different ways to defeat the bad guys, all of which are non-lethal. From the basic arsenal of knockout gas grenades that put enemies to sleep, to the more advanced cartoon interactions where you can trick your enemies into running off ledges or into each other, Dirk Dashing gives players a unique gameplay experience that is very engaging and entertaining."

The trial version of Dirk Dashing for Windows 98SE/ME/2000/XP can be downloaded online at:
