Working Daze
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].

The Spider Cliff Mysteries
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].

Black Cab USA
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].

Death In Sakkara (Part II)
Remember Death In Sakkara from the other week? Well the BBC's point'n'click 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.

Good luck!

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).

Rune Escape
Rune Scape (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
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].

Org.Org 2
Org.Org 2 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
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].

Sancho's Island
Sancho's Island is the point'n'read point'n'click 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].

Leon & The Magic Sturgeon
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 game [slapped subbed by kate].
