The Search for the Dahu
There are a lot of weird creatures in the world. The goblin shark. The platypus. The star-nosed mole. People who put ranch dressing on pizza. But have you heard of the one that lives in the alps, with legs of all different lengths? In Carmel Games' point-and-click adventure The Search for the Dahu, one intrepid reporter with the world's longest microphone cord has set out to track this reclusive beast down. To play, just click on things to interact when the cursor highlights green as you move around the area, and use the items you find to get past obstacles, either on their own or by clicking first one and then another in your inventory to try to combine them. Like most Carmel Games titles, The Search for the Dahu is pleasantly goofy in a very cartoonish way, with over-the-top characters, and puzzles that require some abstract thinking to solve... some more than others. The Search for Dahu actually follows a reasonably logical progression initially, though at some point you'll find yourself thinking, "... yeah, okay, I guess that sort of makes sense," but on the whole, it's a short and cheerfully silly little game that's good for a grin and a short break from your day.
