If you don't like a huge language barrier in a game then forget Forget (hoho - did you see what I did there?), that is unless you are fluent in Japanese. Getting passed the first screen was a struggle for me, combine that with the fact that game is very dark, and this one is a real struggle to play. I'm sure the more determined amongst you will make something of it though [subbed by winniethepooh].

Lazylaces regular Cruzinn writes to me with an important appeal/request which has led to me take some time out of game posting (don't worry they'll be back shortly) to send out a request to you all, and it would be great if you take a minute to read it, and even better if you act upon it.

Cruzinn's niece is in need of a bone marrow transplant, but a suitable donor, that's a good match, is proving hard to find. As Cruzinn says:

We have had a couple of bone marrow drives and have come up with a close match, but not an exact match. I am asking that if you want to help, now is the time.

My niece is 11 years old and has gone through more in her short life than most adults will in their life time.

I want everyone to know that if they are willing to get tested, they may match my niece or someone else who needs their life saved. It would not just be for the life of my niece.

When someone registers and gets tested, they will be put into a data bank and may be matched for someone other than my niece who may need a transplant. I'm asking for help, because we (my family) is really in need of it."

I would love to see everyone tested but understand that this is a serious commitment. I would ask that anyone considering doing this to really take the time to think about it before making a decision. What ever your decision may be, I would like to thank you for your time and consideration.

She is being treated at the Cleveland Clinic Foundation(CCF), in Cleveland Ohio. The is the Children s Hospital web site and this is the Cancer & Blood Disease site. I'm not sure if these sites work outside of The States.

I'd just like to reiterate what Cruzinn says, and point out by doing something as simple as registering and getting tested, you could be signing up to save someone's life. I haven't been registered as a bone marrow donor before, but I have given blood on numerous occasions and it's an incredibly simple thing to do with little effort involved, but it can have fantastic results. If you'd like to sign up try the following links (or do a quick Google search for the country you're in):

Thanks for taking the time to read this.

Caveman's Crib
Caveman's Crib is a weird flash thing it's fun to click around with. I think it's promoting a music label as, amongst other things, I found Royksopp in there, a Norwegian band I love anyway, but it's all a bit confusing, but pleasant to play with non the less [subbed by Ang].

Gold Raider
Gold Raider is an adventure game type treasure hunt where you must collect gems, find secrets, explore the island, look at Kmart (the sponsor) ads, think "Indy", and try and ignore the fact that once again you're trying to use the cursor keys to move diagonally around the screen. Reading that back I make it sound awful, but I actually really liked it, even if the controls are irritating. And if you like this one, there's also Kmart Haunted House to play [subbed by Brenda].

Bloons Tower Defence
Oh dear. I hope you weren't planning on doing any work today. Bloons Tower Defence takes the ridiculously addictive concept of the game Bloons and mixes it up with he ridiculously addictive concept of Tower Defence games. The result is, well, as you might have been able to predict, ridiculously addictive [subbed by Zeta].

Once again time pressures (I'm only working full time, selling my flat, packing and shipping my belongings to The States, selling my car, setting up my own company, preparing for a wedding, updating LL, trying to see all my English friends before I leave... I've not got much on really) mean it's just a short Musical Friday this week (featuring only one artist).

EL has sent in 1234 by Feist, an artist that I've been listening to for a while, but I hadn't listened to this track:

EL doesn't rate the video, but rates the song, but my favourite song from Feist is Mushaboom, which, until I youtube'd it for this, I didn't realise has a great video, as well as being a lovely (perfect for a Friday) song:

Makaimon's Searching 2
A quick keyword guide to Makaimon's Searching 2: waste paper basket, Japanese, computer on a desk, escape the room. I don't even need proper sentences to describe it. One word of warning - I haven't had time to play through it yet, but I'm told there might be a few bugs - hopefully you can still play though [subbed by Catraven].

Escape The Boogeyman
In case you can't guess from the name Escape the Boogeyman is a game that's not suitable for kids: it's a bit scary, but mainly I'm thinking about the pools of blood if/when you get caught. Actually who am I kidding? You will get caught. For the rest of us, crank up the volume, turn down the lights, try to ignore the rather awkward game controls, and do as the game title says: Escape the Boogeyman. My top tip? Avoid any doors that are moving... [subbed by Mr. Box & ...].

Inanimate Alice
Inanimate Alice is a (slightly) interactive tale of Alice, a girl who seems to be always losing her parents. The stories are told through a mix of text, sounds and images with some interaction (more so as the chapters progress). Check out the site for chapters 1 & 2, I found chapter 3 here... interesting, and I could see it eventually becoming a completely interactive game [subbed by troy].

Good luck to Lenella (thanks for the reminder) and any other Lazylaces visitors who will be getting their UK A-Level Examination results today. I hope the endless hours of point and click gaming cause only a positive effect on your grades. At least you'll have no worries about escaping school/college :)

Colors is a point'n'click game involving colours (with, or without, the "u", depending on where you are)... and there you have the full extent of my knowledge about this game. You'll see what I mean... [subbed by handyrman & Sanara].

UPDATE: If the direct link doesn't work then go to the homepage and then click "flash", then "colors".
