I haven't seen the Working Daze
comic before, as far as I'm aware it's not syndicated in any UK publication (well, not one I read anyway), but as I work a web developer some card thought this strip
would appeal to me. It tickled my fancy - I'll be checking out Working Daze
again in the future.
Right, I fully admit a BBC News
story about proposed cheaper peak time rail fares
into London Waterloo station has a limited audience (me, and at best 1% of you guys), but anything that reduces my commuting bill (over £220 pounds a month currently) is absolutely superb news worth shouting about for me. And look at this way, the less money I'm spending on travel, the more I have for my ever increasing web hosting bills for Lazylaces (don't even ask - it's getting depressing).
How did I miss this before? Locus
is a beautiful point'n'click
adventure, with great music, which, unusually, is presented in Quicktime rather than Flash. [via nordinho
Not quite a game, but half interactive comic, The Spider Cliff Mysteries
require some pointing and some clicking but aren't really point'n'click
adventures, they make a nice diversion though. And if, like me, you've never seen them before, there's absolutely loads to catch up on [subbed by Aurora
The London Black Cab
is set to invade the streets of the USA
. Hwah Hwah Hwah! First the cabs, then we'll send you London cabbies (an experience to behold - bless them), and before you it the whole of the States will be drinking tea and playing cricket [via Le Furet Rouge
Remember Death In Sakkara
from the other week? Well the BBC
reminder service dropped me a line:
A new episode of Death in Sakkara has been released!
To continue your adventure from the end of the last chapter you completed, log-in to the game, using your secret code.
If you have forgotten your secret code, please return to the adventure and request to have your secret code emailed to you.
So there's a new episode on-line and it's worth noting that if you sign up you'll get reminders about the forthcoming episodes too (alledgedly they're out this time next week, and the week after - but don't quote me on that).
(not Run Escape - which is what I thought it was when I first saw it written down) is a little bit out of the area of games I normally play, but it looks pretty good, and appears to be free (always good!). It looks in some respects like a point'n'click
adventure, but it's not a quick game, but an ongoing adventure with many quests (in fact to my eye it looks like a mmog
which is something I've never really gotten into). You have to sign up, but it is free, and doesn't involve an e-mail address, just a user name and password. Anyway I freely admit I haven't started playing yet, but I'd love to hear from people that have - is it worth getting into? [subbed by Gillian
La Bella Romanza
is slightly different from your normal point'n'click
. It's a simulation game about juggling all the details of life, all the details of life if you are a ladeeeeee that is. It's kind of a point'n'click
soap opera, for want of a better explanation. I still liked it though even though I don't think I fit into the target audience. The graphics are great, the music is funky, and Elena is cute too [subbed by Macrina
is an odd point'n'click
game with an equally odd name. The most disappointing thing is it's very short, although I suspect the ending I reached, I drank the liquid and saw the light, isn't the only one. See what you make of it [via flash gamez
Quest In The Dark
is an absolutely lovely point'n'click
game with only two small things stopping it being perfect. #1: As the 'talking' is in Japanese (I think) I can't understand it - but this doesn't seem to be too much of a problem. #2: It's just soooo cute that the game play is constantly interrupted by you having to pause and say "ahh how sweet", and people looking over your shoulder and saying how the way the little girl walks is "just too cute" [subbed by tia & eb
adventure that tells the true story of Don Quijote de la Mancha. You can play without registering, but if you don't, you won't be able to
save your games. I'd also recommend having your reading glasses handy, and being a fan of bad harpsichord music would probably be useful too. Looks great though [subbed by Jackie
Your name is Leon and you're sister is ill with an incurable terminal illness... the only thing that may cure her is touching the magical sturgeon, which is lost somewhere on a remote island. Such is the unlikely story of Leon & The Magic Sturgeon
, which wins an award for most bizarre plot in a point'n'click
