  • Can I get a free Steam key?
  • If you purchased a registration code for Charlie the Duck in the past, you can get a free key. Please send an e-mail showing that you bought the game.

  • Help, I can't download! Please explain step by step!
  • First, you need to have a PC with Windows 95/98/Me/2000/XP (not NT).

    Go to the Download page follow and click the download link. At the dialog that comes up, choose 'Open', which should start the installation as soon as the download is complete (you can also first save it to disk and start it from there).

    In the installation program follow the instructions on the screen. After installation, you can start the game with the 'Charlie the Duck' icon on your desktop.

  • How do you beat the big fish?
  • Run HELPME for a demo. If that doesn't work run CHARLIE -H. If that doesn't work either... forget the demo. What you have to do is jump on the fish's head five times.
