The problem with this game is that the first few screens take a lonnnnng time to start. Just wait a few moments and they'll initialise. k:

Did you read the review where it says that you need to extract the game to a folder called c:\daughter and if you use XP that it needs to be mounted in dosbox. I know naught about dosbox as I have Windows 98se. I had to use pure Dos for it to work. The game wouldn't work in Windows 98se.

You need to do either one of these two things to get it started properly:

1. Extract the game to C:\DAUGHTER, and run it with "serpent" from there.

2. Extract it anywhere (let's take D:\oldgames\daughter as an example). Start up dosbox and enter "mount c D:\oldgames\", then write "cd daughter" and run the game with serpent. The important thing is that the game always thinks its in C:\DAUGHTER directory. Stupid, but that's the way it has to be

The control interface does seem a little awkward. You need to right-click through conversations, and left click on highlighted phrases to do stuff (like saying yes or no)

You can go to your inventory by clicking the bottom of the screen, and you can read the letter there by double clicking it, I think. There's also a map so you can travel round the city and a diary that tells you what you should be doing. Apart from that, you're on your own!
