A sacrificial blade forged at the birth of the Roman empire holds the key to an ancient and bloody conspiracy that threatens to erupt into the present day. Stranded in 21st century Tunis, Adam Foster is plunged into a world of greed, betrayal and murder. But who has the blade, and can the killers be stopped?[subbed by msmagrat, Mantari & stephen].
CDX is a new point'n'click mystery from the BBC (only part 1 of 4 is currently available). The graphics, sound and production values are fantastic, and what's more you'll probably learn something about Romans while you are playing... Nice.
Chaperon Rouge is an incredibly cute, and really rather simple, even if like me you don't know much French, point'n'click game. I believe Chaperon Rouge means Red Hood (as in Little Red Riding... I'm guessing), and indeed the goal of the game seems to be to transport the cheese and wine to grandma (who seems rather too fond of her wine judging by the animation). There's nothing difficult here, but the music and graphics are lovely [subbed by MsInterpret].
Reunion. I hope you were keeping those point'n'click skills sharp over the weekend... [subbed by Mantari, Tia, Ree, MsInterpret & Kevin].
Chicmap is another one of those super cute, super easy, point'n'click games which you can finish easily despite not having a clue what is going on. Here you guide a little chick around a map of an island hunting out the other 7 chicks hidden in treasure chests (but of course). Just be careful at the end once you have them all - the button will link you to the doodoo.ru homepage, the content of which is, how shall I put it, hmmmm... variable and possibly nsfw, and not suitable for children - which is a shame as the game would be perfect for kids [subbed by MsInterpret].
50 Dark Movies cryptically hidden in the picture in this game made to promote Dark Chocolate M&Ms? It sounds like a lot of people are having fun with this one and spending a lot of time on it. Personally though I just can't concentrate on it, I'm too busy wondering when Dark Chocolate M&Ms will make it to the UK, and perhaps even more importantly will there be a peanut version? Hmmmm..... dark chocolate peanut... [subbed by fudster, Mantari,

Apologies to everyone if you've seen more spam than usual in the comments, the EvilSpamMonkeys have changed their tactics and are really going for it, "Great Site. Nice Work" indeed. The only response is for me to also update my tactics for responding to spam, so expect to see some changes to the comments system soon (especially if you post URLs). I started work on this last night and hope to have it finished soon. I know that the ultimate solution is for me to require registration to enable commenting, but that's not really a route I want to go down as it's intrusive, annoying, and lots of extra work for me to administrate (lazy as ever you see!). Anyway in the meantime I'll be deleting it as I see it, and you guys be careful what links you're clicking in the comments.
Clinic : The Second Line, the idea is unusual, and the music is great (as it should be since it's a promo for a band). The game is sort of point'n'click (although you have to use that nasty keyboard thing), with an element of arcadish action. You play a little fly who has to collect all the blue pearls (I think that's what they are) in the environments you travel around (which you scuttle and fly around in your fly type way). There are more points on offer the more pearls you find, and the more environments you visit [subbed by Anne].
Goop is one point'n'click game you can't fail to complete, no matter what your level of skill, even with the huge language barrier the game presents [subbed by Meeker].
The Search For The Bees is the latest point'n'click game from Renegade, of Leaving Your Room infamy, and there's not 100 keys to find, in fact there's not even one key to find. Lot's of bees though... [subbed by Renegade & Ducky632] .
point'n'click game in GH Escape 4. Find the keys and escape the gra'eyard . Aye, me parrot concurs [subbed by Matt].
point'n'clickery in Pirates And Treasure, but verily tis' a series o' simple mini games linked by a story. Don't let the children play though; as with all thin's piratey thar is some language and 'iolence t' be beware o' [subbed by Fifi and Cynthia].
International Talk Like A Pirate Day Me thought Me would trawl through the lazylaces 'aults for all the old games I'd linked t' that in'ol'ed pirates and all thin's piratey. In turns out thar be only two though. And they're both recent. Tis' a good day t' play them again though...
Translation: For the first post of International Talk Like A Pirate Day I thought I would trawl through the lazylaces vaults for all the old games I'd linked to that involved pirates and all things piratey. In turns out there are only two though. And they're both recent. It's a good day to play them again though...
