The Black Lodge (Coming Soon)
Possibly some news for puzzle fans, although this teaser site is a bit too cryptic to be sure, Grant writes to tell me of his upcoming game The Black Lodge. My guess is it's a puzzle, since that's what his last games Between Something And Nothing and Maladjusted were, but he does say this one "is a bit different" and the teaser does have an intriguing Twin Peaks vibe. Anyway one to watch out for, I'll post further updates as and when I know more [subbed & created by grant].

Feed The Head
Feed The Head is not so much a game as a "thing", but it's fun none the less, albeit surreal fun, and those point'n'click skills will certainly come in useful in getting the most out of it... er... and then putting it back in again [subbed by im4noles2, carm & Ashley].

Mastermind
I'd forgotten Mastermind , but this was one of my favourite board games when I was a child (way back before point and click games and, er... the internet). So I was delighted when Swiss Thomas wrote to me to say he's produced a DHTML version of the game (meaning it's playable on just about any computer/web browser with no extra software, you don't even have to stay connected to the internet once it's loaded). Anyway if you are as old as me, or even older, and have forgotten "the rules", or you are a newbie to this game, then here they are:

Playing Master Mind requires logical thinking. The computer sets up a code of colored pegs and hides it behind the white circles on top of the board (duplicates are allowed, so even all pegs of the same color might be possible). The aim is to break the code in eight or less guesses. Clicking on one of the colored pegs at the bottom places a peg on the board, starting at the first row, and from left to right. Once the row is complete the game will provide feedback. A black circle on the left indicates that one of the guess pegs is correct both in color and position, a white circle indicates that one of the guess pegs is correct in color but wrong in position.

Tim Tang Test
Time to dust of those over worked brain cells puzzle fans, that's if you aren't still embroiled in solving the devious puzzles involved in some other game you're still playing after several months. The Tim Tang Test is here with 200 levels of url changing, head scratching, google searching, "fun" for you. Time to cancel a few appointments in your calendar I think...

THK 5-8
THK 5-8 is a short, but graphically lovely, sci-fi point'n'click adventure, in which you must escape the space carrier by reaching an escape pod [subbed by Absintheur, winniethepooh, Mantari & Hellervon].

Where's Matt
Where's Matt is a fun little point'n'click version of the classic Where's Wally?/Where's Waldo? games (I'm sure they must use other names in other territories as well and I apologize for omitting these). The idea of the game is to find NBC's Today (I have no idea) show host Matt Lauer (ditto) in the photos [subbed by Michael Merry].

PS. On a totally personal note I'm playing (well not such much playing) my own game (well not so much game) of Where's Matt? I'm looking for an old friend Matthew Webb I've lost contact with and if you are him, know him, or can give me some help finding him, it would be much appreciated - email me using the link in the bottom right hand corner of this page if you can help. Last time I was in touch with him he was working as a paramedic in Stoke-on-Trent, UK and I'd really like to track him down soon.

Echizen
The aim of Echizen (or so I'm told, I can't pretend to have worked this out for myself) is to collect all the ingredients to make soup for your mum using your point'n'click skills. Even if you're a master chef though you're going to struggle more than you would think if you don't understand Japanese [subbed by Melina & carm].

Na Mira Da Lei
Na Mira Da Lei is a nice looking, nice sounding, seemingly simple crime scene investigation point'n'click game. Oh... but it's made somewhat harder if you don't understand Portuguese. Did I not mention it was in Portuguese? Ooops... [subbed by CrisMach]
