"The Postman Only Dies Once" - version 2.0

It's taken me two years, but I finally got off my duff and recompiled a windows version of this game.  You can get it off of the Reality-On-The-Norm site or download it directly at http://ron.the-underdogs.org/games/post.zip

For those who haven't played the game, here's a screenie:



SYNOPSIS:Pete Bailey the postman has been murdered, and the only suspect is zombie Michael Gower. Help Max Griff, Reality's number one (and so far only) private eye as he tries to unearth the real killer. Charades, vats of acid, Mah Jong and donuts await your investigation!

Enjoy!

If I'm remembering, Mika has won for the best second
role.

Atta boy. This game is great. Will you make another game starring Max Griff and Mika?

Yeah, in 2001 Mika won for "Best Supporting Character" and the whole game won for "Best Dialog in an AGS game."

I had an idea for another Max Griff RON game, but Mika wasn't terribly involved with the plot.  I'm busy with "Bestowers of Eternity" at the moment, so I don't know if I'll get around to making this anytime soon.

Any additions\improvements or is this simply the same game with a windows loader?

No major changes.  I fixed only two very tiny things that bothered me.  

Add spoiler tag for Hidden:
Davy's desk now has a description.  It threw people off because nobody thought to interact with it.
During the "bomb" scene, I moved Mika further over to the left so her hotspot doesn't conflict with Death.

I thoguht about adding other improvements, but I honestly don't have much time right now.  Those two problems were the only things people really complained about, so I figured it would be okay.

I think RON is a great idea...  :)
It's fun to see how a character pops up in a RON game... :P

I've already played this game in its original incarnation, but I may as well take this new opportunity to say how awesome it is.  Easily one of the best RON games.  Great job DB.
