Parco's Watching
The old sluthing hat is firmly in place tonight (I'm thinking Holmes' Deerstalker here), with yet another "find the clues" point'n'click adventure. I'm giving Parco's Watching an 18+ rating as I haven't had time to play it through yet, but it seems a bit risquee, with a potential for rudeness (let me know if I'm wrong on this). Anyway it's another television series tie-in, but I know nothing about this one as it hasn't graced the fair shores of Blighty yet, so I'll hand over to sopdox for the rest of the description:

I doubt in the UK you get our CourtTV. This is a show about a real life typical New York private investigator and his staff & family. The game is very easy. Nice little mindless time waster. You have to collect all the evidence. You get it by flirting, bribing or beating someone up to get it. You have a choice of 2 endings. I love the shoe Parco PI as I'm also a New Yorker. I, however, do NOT have that accent.

Law & Order : Criminal Intent
Point'n'click crime solving adventure from the Law & Order television franchise, kind of the like the CSI games, but without The Who, and most definately a demo of full buy-able game. I would say more, but it crashed my computer, but I think that says more about the computer I'm on, than the game [subbed by featheredkitten].

First Post
It might not be for every Lazylacer (I'm looking at you meme), but I think I've found the desirable fashion item of this season for a good few of you. I almost fell off my chair laughing when I first opened the link. It made me think though - maybe I should use cafe press and get some Lazylaces t-shirts done. Anyway, I'll save that thought for another day, for now lets see who can post "First!" in the comments [subbed by ron].

Survivoo isn't a particularly difficult point'n'click adventure, even though I don't know the language, but it is very cute. It also has a sense of humour and had me giggling incessantly, which is a very unusal, but welcome, thing for a point'n'clicker [subbed by SpunkyBubbleHead].

You were wondering what to get me for Christmas weren't you? Well as a public service I can tell you that the SqueezeBox is exactly what I want. Being able to wirelessly stream any music file from a computer in Lazylaces towers to my stereo system? Yes please. Stop that $299 burning a hole in your pocket and get ordering so it arrives in time. For reference the black version with the WiFi option is the one for me. That is all. I'm off to watch for the postman now. Oh, and one other thing, the fact that it's playing an obscure track in the marketing pic that I own means it's destiny, doesn't it? [via OhGizmo!].

The Dark Complex
The Dark Complex is the equally as warped sequel to The Dark Room. This is point'n'click adventure that will screw with your mind and make your eyes go all squinty. Enjoy! It still reminds me of Tron as well, which no bad thing [subbed by na, guy & tafkam].

Antony And The Johnsons
This should have really been posted yesterday for (the recently missing) Lazylaces Musical Friday, but I hadn't heard of Antony And The Johnsons until I saw them on the Jonathan Ross show last night. What can I say? I just find Antony's voice bewitching, and the music is so chilled out, which is exactly my cup of tea. Anyway if you visit the site you'll find versions of several songs accompanied by animations by Adam Shecter, check "Hope There's Someone", "Mysteries Of Love", and "The Lake".

Warning Label Generator
You remember a long time back I posted a link to the church sign generator, well the warning label generator is a nice twist on the same idea. Have fun generating your own warning label for your own web site, bedroom door, whatever.

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).
