She Blocked Me
A musical tale of the frustrations of carrying out a modern relationship over IM - "She Blocked Me". Personally I've never been blocked (I'm such a nice guy :o) ), but I have blocked others (long story) [subbed by Meg A].

Calm Down Dear!
While my ears are still bleeding I may as well inflict Calm Down Dear! on you. If you're from outside the UK these probably make even less sense to you than they do to me, but it's really not worth going into a big explanation. Basically imagine taking the worst advert on Television and remixing it with banging techno music and you'll be just about there.

Cillit Bang Remix
Guaranteed to clean your bathroom and make your ears bleed, it's the Cillit Bang Remix. Thanks for submitting this, it's not stuck in my head at all now [subbed by think~pink].

Lost Survival Mission
Hey, now we get Lost on UK television, the old "I am lost" game has been removed (I didn't know what it was when I first played, and now it's one of my favourite shows). Anyway all is not... er... lost..., as there's the new Lost Survival Mission to play with. Over to Merel for the info on this new, slightly unusual, point'n'click game:

The old ''I Am Lost'' game is gone, but now you can play this "Survival Mission''. Point, click and drag. You're on a tropical island, and you have to collect items to keep your health, water and food level ok. But you can only carry 8 items, you can discard them in order to pick up new items. Choose well, or else you'll die.

I love all things to do with Lost so I'm slightly biased on this one, but it is a fun game, and just like the series the jungle looks excellent [subbed by merel & koko].

10 Things James Bond Would Never Do
Oh how "10 Things James Bond Would Never Do" made me chuckle. Although "be played by a German actor" should have been number #11, as that would have made me chuckle more [subbed by webster].

Penance
Hmmmm.... black and white graphics, funeral music, and a rapidly expanding collection of body parts. Combined with the fact that it's called "Penance", you know that there's something deeply wrong in this little point'n'click adventure [subbed and created by Paul W].

Noitulove
Noitulove is one of the coolest adverts you'll see this year, and shows that millions of years of evolution have passed solely so that you can enjoy a pint of Guinness (something I'd never agree with) - use the quicktime link on the linked page to view the whole thing [subbed by AlexJ].

Rush 2++
You may or may not have noticed that I've been a little quiet over the last few days. Well I've been curled up in a ball under the bedclothes wishing I didn't have a cold. I hate getting ill, I've too much to do and too little time to do it as it is, without having to put time aside for lots of tiresome sneezing and coughing. Anyways I'm still feeling a little rough now, but I'm far too bored to keep away from posting stuff any longer...

First up Rush 2++, a flash animation which has a familiar style. I'll handover to LL regular Think~Pink for the explanation:

This is truly awesome. It's a flash movie with fantastic animation and an equally great tune, (by a band named Jumbo).

This is brought to us by Vinnie Veritas, who is the guy that made Hoy te amo, (the animation with the giant robot spiders), Papalote and many more amazing animations. Seriously, this guy is very talented and IMO, deserves showcasing. Anyway, I know you will like it...it's really hard not to.

[thanks think~pink]

Nightmare Escape
Trapped in a room with no obvious way of escape? A familiar story which you'll be used to by now, but you love it, I know you do. Nightmare Escape might follow a tried and tested point'n'click storyline, but those bloody foot-prints on the floor suggest you really should try to get out as soon as possible, and judging by the fact that at least half the people that have submitted this have admitted they're doing so as they're stuck and need help, it might not be as easy as you would wish [subbed by hewitt, jack, gordon & chun].

Good news everyone - Nordinho Is Back! Note that the address has changed to use ".net" rather than ".com". I had this short note from Nordinho which, sort of, explains the temporary disappearance:

Hey Graeme,

Due to a conflict with my host I had to change the url www.nordinho.com to www.nordinho.net. Can you update the link at Lazylaces to the new address??

Greets Nordinho,

I'll update the permenent link in the right-hand column as soon as I get back to my PC at home, but I wanted to break the news as soon as possible.

PS. A fond farewell to those of you were that were just visiting while nordinho was down, you were most welcome, and I hope you'll pop back once in a while. Your comments on not having Personal Messaging here at LL are very true and it's now on my development list. LL was never intended as a games forum it's just kind of turned out that way, so the features only really get added when enough people ask me.

PPS. Time to change the address on the site banner Nordin!

Triskabiblios : New Moon
If you don't know what Triskabiblios is and you want to join a 'game' that will take over large parts of your life try catching up here.

If you are already 'playing' you will have been waiting to hear something yesterday as it was the new moon, and after I went to bed last night (occasionally I do) I received the following from Islington:

Today. Our celestial bodies are in syzygy and lo, the new moon waxes. Let not our initial confusion eclipse the great rewards for the fate of Humanity should we succeed. As I know we do. Have Faith. I am proud and grateful for the High level of compassionate, organic intellegence displayed so consistently amongst those visionary individuals who so dillegently seek and strive to help. This is a long Journey. And yet, it is like Coming Home. When you walk into the wilderness, with no sight of your destination, the way is hard and tiresome. The same distance walked to a place you Know and Love is short and blissful.

The Perfect Future is a Long walk Home.

I will be contacting some scribes with interesting and vital tasks. No-one is obliged to do them, but striving to will help to build the network of active Seekers to an ever more growing number. The Time of The Zero Book's discovery is Nigh. Contained within it's humble pages are mere cyphers of the Reality I live amidst. Read with the Collective Mind, as One, the pages will form a broad and descriptive guide to the Future success inherent in the grand task to come. I hope you find the searching fulfilling and the rewards self apparent. For the first Time, I would like to Thank you All. Imagine is still Number1. The Ideal lives on in the Mind of Man. I will Return.

Islington

So it looks like we'll soon get our hands on book zero (but how?), my guess would be we should watch for the full moon on the 17th (I think that's right) for that one. And the scribes will be getting tasks! I can't wait for that.

Devil's Triad
Girl Power! Just to prove that girls can be evil too (I always suspected as much) the 3 main characters in Devil's Triad are all ladies of a sort: Vampiress, Witch and female Ghost. You can select which you play as, but since they all meet up in the adventure it doesn't really matter which you choose, but my favourite was the vampiress. Whichever you pick, you end up hunting for objects for the other two, in this point'n'click-esque (you actually use the cursor, and space, keys) quest. I haven't completed it yet, but my top tips so far are that some of the items seem very difficult to spot, and the music gets very irritating very quickly [subbed by foxy].
