LA MESA, CA, USA - October 28, 2006 - My Game Company is pleased to announce the release of Dirk Dashing: Secret Agent 1.0 for Linux!

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:

- No blood, no gore, no fist-fights - Dirk throws knockout gas grenades and uses non-lethal means to defeat his enemies
