Ape Marina is an Italian indie studio focused on developing freeware adventure games. Donald Dowell and the Ghost of Barker Manor is its latest project.

The game’s title character is an 80-year-old retiree who lives in Ireland and has an unbearable wife. Out of boredom, he tries to go back to work but is turned down everywhere he goes.

He’s then struck by a peculiar idea. He’ll become a ghostbuster!

Donald decides to work for Bob Delano, the most famous paranormal detective in Ireland. However, Delano is temporarily stuck at Barker Manor. Donald goes there to find him and stays on to investigate the strange phenomena taking place.

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal.
