Secret agent Dirk Dashing is back for a brand new mission!

After a wicked computer virus destroys G.O.O.D's new computer network, agent Dirk Dashing must track down the cyber criminal responsible for the attack. His mission leads him to a massive global corporation, owned by one of the wealthiest men in the world.

* A new health system, so Dirk can take multiple hits before he dies (no more instant death)!
* New moves, including the ability to climb ladders and hang from wires and pipes!
* An all-new soundtrack with spy music that perfectly fits the game!
* Play using keyboard, joystick, or game pad!
* Ability to save your game progress at any point!

Free demos are available for Mac, as well as Windows and Linux. The demo contains Part 1 of the 5-part story. Feedback is welcome! I really want to make this game special for fans of classic platformers, so I welcome any suggestions for improvement. And certainly tell me what you like about the game, so I don't inadvertently change a game mechanic or feature that you like. You can reach me at

Dirk Dashing 2 can be pre-ordered for $19.99 USD. Pre-ordering customers will receive a download link to the "full" version beta, containing Parts 1 and 2 of the 5-part story. They'll also receive free updates as I finish each part of the game, with new levels, new features, bug fixes, and more. So it will be a lot like playing an episodic game - with each new update, more of the story will be revealed. And when the game is all done, I'll give pre-ordering customers a free copy of the planned $5 strategy guide, containing level maps, concept art, hints, tricks, and more!

Note, I still haven't decided what to do about the default control scheme for Mac. So if you're on Snow Leopard and you decide to run the game in Windowed mode, you'll need to remap a few keys. The default key configuration for Jump (Ctrl) and Movement (left and right arrow) are now used by OS X Spaces, and it will intercept the keys before my game. Ugh.
