Esklavos C12
Hmmm... I'm an idiot. Whilst catching up with posts earlier I posted Esklavos C11 without even thinking to check if there was an Eskalovos C12 yet, which it turns out there is, so now I have to play it with an evening's worth of beer and chicken wings ($3 during happy hour! w00t!) inside me... It's torture I tells ya... [subbed by Graeme].

Dr. Dokkoy
Last of the "catch-up" posts for today, Dr. Dokkoy is the game I was most pleased to see in my in-box (and lucky me I'm yet to play it all - I have plenty of gaming goodness left). Something about the Aztec games just hits the right point'n'click spot for me: the clean and simple graphics wrap up puzzles that aren't too simple, nor are they impossibly difficult, making for a very enjoyable gaming experience [subbed by MegiPoland, roko, Phil, Helanren, Cyberjar88, handyrman, Meeker, Andiar, Cristina, Mysterious Man, winniethepooh, enola, Pufje, Pari, HunterThompsonWanabe & anon].

JOBPico
Hmmm.... bizarrely self-referential, JOBPico is the latest point'n'click from the gotmail team, in which you must escape the room, in order to get a job designing escape the room games.... job number one should you escape the room, and get the escape the room designing job, is to design an escape the room game where the prize for escaping is to design an escape the room game, the winner of which will design an escape the room game where..... hang on. I'm just making this up now, and I'm totally confusing myself. Suffice to say rooms and escaping play a significant role in JOBPico [subbed by xReiya].

Bon Voyage
Tricky escape the room style puzzles abound when the fiendish gotmail.jp team set their minds to it, and Bon Voyage delivers just that, as you might expect, in another slick looking point'n'click package [subbed by Scott, Cyberjar88, Helanren, J, anon, Nick S The Hamster & Cornboy].

Darkness Episode 3
In Episode 3 of the Darkness point'n'click series you find yourself trapped in a subway train. Use your point'n'click wits to get out, and be sure to turn down the lights, and turn up your speakers, for maximum enjoyment/atmosphere [subbed by ArcadeStreet].

Wogger Mini 101 - 109
Whilst I've been away another 9 Wogger Mini episodes have come out to totally blow away the "100 episodes" guess I had in the "how many will there be" sweepstakes. Anyway for those of you who have not already played them here are episodes 101 to 109: [subbed by Spanky McPipebomb, Hiddenfaceinthecrowd, Handyrman, some1, Cyberjar88 & anon].

EvilSpamMonkey BeGone?Well I think, stress think, my last load of changes have thwarted the EvilSpamMonkeys hacking back into the site, so it looks like it's time to tentatively step out of my spam proof bunker and get posting again... I have one or two things (mild under-exaggeration) that have been submitted to post for y'all.

As well as getting back to posting there are a few site changes that I have planned for this year which I'll discuss on here as I get round to doing them. First up I'm planning on an update to the "Submit A Link" page itself. Everyone is so kind as to post new games and links through this to me so I don't have to do all the new game searching leg work myself (I still do sometimes though), but the page is becoming increasingly abused by those EvilSpamMonkeys who try every avenue to get their generic cheap drugs advertisements out to you all.

Currently for every game/link post I get from genuine Lazylacers I get somewhere between 50 & 100 spam submissions. I have been dealing with this ok, but it's very time consuming, and I'm worried now that genuine submissions are getting lost in the sea of spam (apologies if this has happened to you). So the plan is to add a "prove you are human" test to the submission page (similar to the one you may have encountered when adding comments) which should reduce the problem dramatically since EvilSpamMonkeys seem to get SpamBots to do most of their dirty work for them.

Anyway, that's what I'm up to "behind the scenes", now back to posting with a bit of a catch-up session on the things that haven't been lost in my mass spam deleting sessions....

PS: Thanks for the beers and poems whilst I've been away, you've been keeping Jen & I entertained :)

EvilSpamMonkey AttacksWell after a fantastic wedding (pics soon), honeymoon in Hawaii, Christmas and New Year, things were due to return to normal here on Lazylaces (with a few New Year's resolutions thrown in for good measure), but as you may have seen whilst dropping by we've had more than our fair share of anti-social attacks on the site.

EvilSpamMonkeys have found there way into the posting system (twice now) resulting in lots of posts about cheap generic pharmaceuticals rather than cool new games. Round one of the site changes to stop this only kept them bamboozled for a few days though, and they soon returned, and now a lot more changes have been made to stop them returning again. Please let us know immediately by e-mail (link at the bottom of every page) if you see any evidence that they have returned once more, as we'll need to dig out our best thinking hats to come up with another solution - for now we think we've plugged every gap an EvilSpamMonkey might squeeze though - but you never know, they are tenacious little devils.

On top of that some little hacking idiots thought it would be good idea to divert further time and resources by messing totally with the comments system. Now you'll find that virtually all HTML tags are disabled in comments - this probably won't bother everyone, but if you've ever found them useful in the past, we apologise, but they've become more trouble than they're worth. Regular text comments, hint tags and spoilers still all work though.

Anyway, for now posting is on hold until we're a bit more certain we've defeated any further hacking attempts - there's a good chance that if the ESMs get back in that we'll need to restore the current back-up of the site, losing anything new that has been added, and backing the whole thing up for every new post is just way too time consuming. So for now, we're still on hold, but if we stay EvilSpamMonkey free for a few more days we'll start to post again and hopefully get things back to normal.

Lazy BreakI've unintentionally been on a break whilst doing wedding preparations as we move from high gear to ridiculous gear... and with the wedding on Saturday, followed by the Honeymoon it's going to be some time before I'm back to update LazyLaces. Apologies. Try the "more games" section on the right whilst I'm away, or trawl thru the site archives or see if you can post first in the comments. Thanks for all your support, and kind emails, LL will be back soon, but only after some much needed personal time for Jen & I.

Tipping Point
Tipping Point might take a while to load, but it's worth the wait, go and make a cup of coffee (or two) whilst the load bar trundles along. Once loaded the wait is instantly explained, the superb photo-realistic graphics of this point'n'click adventure must result in some hefty file sizes. There are no rules and no instructions to the game, so jump right in and get clicking. Explore your surroundings, find clues and solve puzzles to move the story forward, whilst enjoying the lush surroundings and sounds as the mystery unfolds.

Tipping Point

There are two chapters available currently, with a third planned to follow later (for now I better warn you to be prepared for a frustrating "to be continued" message once you've cracked the maze). I can't wait [subbed by Dan Russell-Pinson & Mantari].
