Strindberg + Helium
are one of the strangest double-acts around
. While you might be pondering upon the deep philosophical mutterings of Strindberg, I'm thinking what a cute little critter Helium is. I mean, how can you not like him?
First up a quick apology: Sorry if there have been no posts for a little while, sorry if I haven't replied to your e-mails, and sorry if I post something you've submitted over the next few days without acknowledging you. I've been a teensy-weensy bit busy these last few days, including at the weekend (don't go there), and I will be for the rest of the week. Despite the disorganisation though I'm going to try and squeeze a few posts in. And with that apology I'm going to get on with it...
Le Building is a funny little film, lifted from the merely amusing to the truely awe-inspiring by some totally bonkers music (it really kicks off when the cat hits the pizza-guy). I heartily approve of anything that makes me start doing funny Russian style jigs around my living-room on a Monday evening.
game where you position chairs? It sounds like it might be a school assembly, but Vestibular Unisinos
is one of the best looking, and sounding, games you'll find at the moment, and most frustratingly I'm stuck on level 2 (pictured) [subbed by nitro, hewitt, kat & kimi
Update: ok, it felt slightly random, I'm not sure I could recreate it, but I've got passed level 2 now and I'm stuck on level 3.
Update 2: Ohhhhh....seemed to be to do with those little puffy clouds that appeared when I was shaking the bush - got back through level 2, and I've now completed level 3. *all done* That was nice.
The Secret Garden Of Mutabor
is a rather unusal point'n'click
game, with some fantastic graphic designs, and innovative, or at least interesting, usages of the flash medium. If you love hunting in the wastepaper-basket for your clues there's the possibility that this might just blow your mind. *plush* [subbed by nail
I post whack your boss
for some friends who need it just at the moment (and that's whack in the Sicilian sense, not just the idly slapping someone kind of way in case you were wondering) [thanks kyle
I thought I'd not only posted Inspektor Wombat
ages ago, but played it to completion as well, but it turns out I've done neither of those things (the nearest I've done is post a wombat tale
). It would seem that every time I try to play this point'n'click
game I just end up singing the Inspector Gadget theme tune
to myself instead, with the words subtly changed ; der, der, der, inspector wombat, der, der, der, der-der, hoo-hoo. [subbed by nail
The first point'n'click
game in ages I've managed to find before someone else submitted
it. I think so anyway, it could be in my inbox somewhere I grant you, but it, and I, are a little disorganised at the moment. Anyway I liked Kao
as it's the first point'n'click
game I've come across where escaping the room seems to involve drinking, which is always a bonus. There's possibly a handicap system slash
drinking game to be had here where you keep up drink for the drink with the main character (not hard) if you are so inclined. Easy to complete, with rather a weird ending. Enjoy. *hic*
Flash animations of a man in a suit
going mad. Doesn't ring any bells for me, no sir-ee...[subbed by thisatisfied
At one point in the recent past I started collecting together as many toast related links as I could find (you'd be surprised just how many there are - it's a common obsession) with the intention of posting a special toast related page. Don't ask me why, it was something to do with boredom and a toast dominated diet at the time. Anyway... enough of my personal daemons I'm sure I'll work them out at some point with some expensive therapy, I have to link to Toast In The Post
now as it made me giggle when I stumbled across it eariler this evening, and, hey, I admit it, I like toast.
Once again a point'n'click
game in a language I find so impenetrable that I can't even work out it's name and I resort to calling it episode 1
, because that's the English name of the flash file and the only bit I understand. Anyway it has a wastepaper basket containing a clue, and a computer on a desk, oh and you're locked in a room, so it's not all unfamiliar territory [subbed by Sunshine C
It's just too hot
here to sit around posting stuff at a computer. Hopefully True Gate
will keep you occupied while I pop off to stand under a cold shower [subbed by kimi and meme
A very weird point'n'click
game, La Pièce
has items that appear as you move your mouse over them, the graphics can go a bit strange (intentionally I think) and different things happen depending on whether you have the shutters on the window open or not. Bizarre [subbed by kennymfk
