Memory
Definately in the category of "difficult", due to the language, Memory is a great looking point'n'click game, I especially like the cut scenes as you move, although there is an incredibly long load time at the begining to get through before you get all this graphical lovliness (and that medusa statue thing is rather to detailed and eerie for my liking). I'm still looking around all the rooms at the moment, but I'm assuming we have to "escape the apartment", I can't tell for certain because of the language thing, but you know how it is with these point'n'click things, you usually have to escape something.

Death In Sakkara
Death In Sakkara is a point'n'click adventure from the BBC which lets you learn some history while you are playing. It's rather beautiful to look at, but there's quite a lot of 'talking', which I know not everyone likes in these things, but it doesn't bother me too much. I also liked being transported to Egypt because it's a rainy, dark, day here in London today (that link shows the nearest web cam to where I work!). Anyway, enjoy your travels...

BlivOfficer
BlivOfficer is a point'n'click game, but I'm too busy playing the sub-game, "guess the language", to work out the pointy and clicky bits right now. I'm tending towards something Scandinavian - in fact I'm going to guess "Norwegian", I think they have those "o"'s with a strike through them like old skool computer zeros. Guesses upon language and gameplay in the comments as usual [subbed by derly].

Update: Darn it's Danish - I was wrong - thanks folks.

Triskabiblios : My Book
Just a quick Triskabiblios update for those following the 'game' (good luck catching up if you want to join in - oh so much to read!). I've been away from my 'puter for a while but I've now posted pics of the book that was hand delivered to my flat (and my pics of the Thomas Paine monument from when I was there) - see this photolog entry (click on the individual pics to see bigger versions as normal).

Jinx (Episode 1)
You are out trick or treating in your ghost costume when it starts raining. What are you to do? Take refuge in the big scary house of course! Oh dear, the door shuts behind you and you are trapped. Well, I didn't see that coming. Jinx might not have the most original storyline in the world, it might be immensely easy to work out the puzzles (really they are very easy), but it's also oh so cute. I had a smile on my face the whole time I was playing - brighten up a few minutes of your Tuesday with Jinx.

Update: I even liked the cheesy ending. I can't wait for episode 2, no matter how easy this was.

Submachine (extended)
The first submachine was very popular so I was pleased to hear from murtaugh that there is now a new extended version:

If you've played Submachine before and think you've seen it all... think again. In this extended version there are twice as many rooms to explore and twice the fun. Solve the new puzzle and see the altered ending.take a sneak preview of the Submachine 2 before its even finished. If you're an submachine addict already, think of this as a warm up for the sequel to this game.

Lost Rhapsody
Total silliness is the result of Lost vrs. Bohemian Rhapsody and I'm loving it. Sing-a-long now [subbed by tafkam].

Ankh
Ankh is a puzzle in a not pr0n style with pretty graphics - which is no bad thing [via nordinho].

This Is Not Po*n
It's not not pr0n, but This Is Not Po*n. But it's not dis-similar. Right that's enough nots they're getting me in knots, much like this puzzler that's not (I said that was enough "nots" - ed) a point'n'click game, but that kind of brain will definately come in handy. Not. Arrrrggggh! [subbed by justin, pigbuster & vb].

Transporter 2
Question my taste in films, I don't care, but I loved The Transporter, so I was thrilled to hear there was a Transporter 2 (out now in the US, still waiting here in the UK). For fans of fast saloon cars you'll notice it's an Audi this time rather than a Beamer, *drool*, in the starring role.

Aquaria
I haven't really had time to play Aquaria, I'm still not back at my home PC, but it looks like a very promising point'n'clicker. From a quick look round the graphics are very good. My guess without reading whaever language it's in, and without having completed it, is to escape the aquarium, so it should be some relatively familiar territory for you [subbed by Liza & Madam Mayhem].

Tales Of The Scarecrow
I'm away from my home PC most of this week so I have to take the chance to post when and where I can. Today my work PC before I start for the day! I haven't got the atmosphere, here at my desk, for Tales Of The Scarecrow, really you need the lights down low and the sound up, but the amount of work I have to do today is pretty scarey. Anyway, this is one of the best flash animations I've seen in the lead up to Halloween. Enjoy, but don't have nightmares [subbed by peek].
