La Recherche Des Enfants Perdus
Hmmm... my French isn't that good, but I think "La Recherche Des Enfants Perdus" means "The Search For The Lost Children", anyway that's not important, what is important is that this point'n'click adventure has excellent graphics (we're talking samorost-esque, *joy*) and great atmospheric music. Also being a tie-in with the French release of Peter Pan seems to do it no harm at all. My only complaint is that it's a little too simple and short, but the pleasure in playing it more than makes up for this. To start, click "entrer", and then click "jeu interactif" - that's where my walkthru ends as you really won't need anymore. Enjoy.

Well I wanted a point'n'click game that wasn't just wake up in a room, computer on a desk, clue in the wastepaper basket, try and unlock the door, etc, and Kafkamesto delivers by the bucket load. Maybe too much. Looks great, sounds good, is very bizarre. But that's Kafka for you [subbed by featheredkitten & castor].

P4X Riddle
Oh dear. If I wasn't spending enough time on my point'n'click addiction, I'm now really getting into these puzzle thingumies. The P4X Riddle (available in English and German) seems to be rather a nice example. I'm up to level 5 now, and enjoying it...[subbed by ephiny].

If you have your own web site pop on over to Silktide SiteScore to see how your site rates for marketing, design, accessibility, experience, and visitor opinion. It provides a very good analysis of your site and is free with no registration required. As a result of my 7.9/10 score, I'll be improving LL's accessibility soon, as that's where I scored poorly (which I wouldn't have thought of without using this tool).

Hopping Ham's Adventure
Hopping Ham is oh so cute, and is from the same point'n'click stable as Kapabo Chase, in fact you should find the zoo, and some of the characters familiar... And what's more if you enjoy this one there's also a 2nd episode [subbed by gillian, koko, castor & lynn].

Cyberchase - The Quest
Cyberchase is a cute kids' point'n'click adventure around cyberspace. I like their description of the game better than anything I can come up with, so over to them:

Welcome to cyberspace! We're so glad you're here to help us Stop Hacker.

Here's how it works. Motherboard will contact you with your quest. Each one is like a job. She'll tell you what Hacker is up to, and how you can stop him. You'll have to go from cybersite to cybersite to find everything you need. Sometimes you'll have to get stuff, sometimes you'll have to do stuff...

Ahhhh... cute stuff [subbed by Buster H & Rachel].

CSI : Mind Prison
I'm not totally sure I'm into the CSI Mind Prison game, although I am into CSI, but what I do know is that this point'n'click game, as well as some detective work, features the full opening title sequence for the show. That means I get to sing-a-long to The Who really badly, which definitely gets my vote [subbed by adam].

Puzzled 2
If you were puzzled by puzzled 1 prepare to be puzzled by puzzled 2 too, and if you weren't puzzled by puzzled 1, you might not be puzzled by puzzled 2, but if your are that might leave you puzzled as to why 1 was not a puzzle, but puzzled 2 is a puzzle. Puzzling. What is not a puzzle is why I think my "Z" key might be broken [subbed by lolieh88 & helanren].

You might have to use the keyboard (cursor keys, and <space> for actions), rather than using the ol' point'n'click in Frengers, it might be a very thinly veiled promotion for the band Mew, but look how cute the little stick bird you control is. Ahhhhhh......

Winter Tales
It's damn cold here at the moment (rumour has it that it's going to snow, but the BBC weather disagrees) so I'm thoroughly in the mood for, the rather lovely, Winter Tales. Your task, should you choose to accept it, is to guide the skiing snowman across the snowscape by laying out a path for him - the longer the path, the more points you accumulate. You get the idea I'm sure. It's rather like some other games where you guide balls through pipes, and the like, but about a billion times cuter [NOTE: Flash 8 required, before you tell me it doesn't work].

Doo Wop Horses
In case you haven't had your daily dose of strange, here is a flash movie of some horses that sing calming doo-wop music to you when you click on them. Strangely entertaining. I personally recommend leaving the horse on the far left silent for the best effect [subbed by pigbuster].

Lazylaces Mobile (Beta)After sending a day a while back tinkering with creating web pages for mobile devices I never really finished off what I was doing, but I did get the comments made on this site available on some mobile pages. Since then I've checked the comments virtually everyday using my phone when I'm away from my PC (on the train mostly), so I thought it was finally time to clean up the pages and advertise them to all. So, as of now, the site comments are available on your mobile phone, simply point your WAP/GPRS device to:

The pages are written in XHTML-MP, which means that the pages should be readable from most modern, internet enabled, mobile devices, although I've only tested them from my Samsung (which uses the Openwave browser). You should be able to see the pages from a normal web browser as well, but obviously they don't look too good as they are formatted for devices with tiny screens (and the cool soft key links won't work either).

Anyway if your try it out on a mobile device I'd love to hear if you have any feedback. I'm already planning to add automatic redirection for mobile devices from the main site address to the mobile address, and, if I suddenly get lots of time (unlikely), I'll also look at expanding the mobile content available.
