Gan-Tan is an escape the room game that mentions New Years I suspect I'm slightly slow on posting this one and buried somewhere back in the sea of spam in my in-box will be a few more submissions I've missed (apologies if this is true), but since we laugh in the face of schedules here at Lazylaces, there would appear to be no good reason not to still post it [subbed by Louise & anon].
Les Nuits Des Clans is to do with me not understanding enough French to know what is going on more than anything else, although the game is clearly meant to have a mystical air, with it's Celtic island setting, and blue toned graphics, not to mention the whole Scottish clan thing (whose relevance I didn't grasp at all). Anyway, during the game you point'n'click your way around the island trying to find mini games to play as far as I've been able to work out (the mini games fall into the category of arcade style logic puzzles from what I have seen), and that's pretty much it - although I suspect there is a greater overall goal to work out in here somewhere. Perhaps one of the greatest challenges of the game though, at least for non-French speakers is even starting to play.... you have to register (apologies to all of you who hate registering for anything), and then sign back in, all in French. It's somewhat baffling, but if I managed to do it, I'm sure you'll get through it... [subbed by Minxxo].
Dog Room Escape will we find out the answer to one of life's eternal questions... "who let the dogs out"? [subbed by Mystery].
The Crown Jewels is another point'n'click murder mystery but I don't think the graphics on this one will kill your broadband connection. Anyway, in the game, the king has been murdered, and you must use your detective skills to work out who committed the crime. Apparently it's also scored against the clock so lets hope your detecting is fast [subbed by Nick].
Bow Street Runner is a historical point'n'click murder mystery (note: crime scenes are not suitable for younger players!) set in Georgian London, with atmospheric sights and sounds, which make for an absorbing game, even if it is slightly linear and not too difficult. Even better this is just the first part of a promised series of games for us to get wrapped up in. My only hope is that the later episodes are not so buggy though, maybe it's just the size of the game causing issues (beware the long load times they're not kidding with the "broadband required warnings), or maybe it's my PC, but I had to restart this several times to get through it with load screens freezing and not letting me progress, etc [subbed by Franki, Crymoon, Anjie, anon, Tweetiti, jadee & Mystery].
gotmail team trap you in a child's room in their new game, "The Daydream", you know that escaping isn't going to be... wait for it... wait for it... it isn't going to be child's play. Ahhhh... sometimes these puns just write themselves, which is why I take no responsibility for that one. Anyway, on with the point'n'clicking whilst we groove on down to this infectious xylophone riff [subbed by Michel, Helanren, Crymoon, Andy from Encino, Escaper, evil smile & Meeker].
The Walls - Part Three might have eerie graphics and sounds, but fortunately the point'n'click puzzles are less mysterious for the benefit of my poor tired brain [subbed by Salazar Icewolf, Cruzinn, Theidiotcircusboy & antennae].
The Walls - Part Two is the second instalment of this strange (but not terribly difficult) point'n'click series [subbed by Salazar Icewolf].
The Walls - Part One is the first of a set of three slightly surreal point'n'click games in which you must find three digit codes in all the graphical confusion in order to progress [subbed by Salazar Icewolf].

Sweet Valentine sees you trying to point'n'click your way out a house with a box of chocolates. Apparently there are 3 different endings, corresponding to three levels of difficulty, personally I like whichever one ends up with me getting the chocs... [subbed by hikari no sakura & sassymom08].
