Are you the kind of person that people just look at when you are talking, trying to work out what on earth it is that you mean? Do you like posing riddles? Do you have to Google your own thoughts to understand them? Do you own a green jumpsuit covered in question marks? If any/all of the answers to these question is "yes" and you have experience creating on-line riddles (or you'd like to give it a go) you can pop on over to The Gamershood Forums and enter their riddle setting competition and win prizes, rather than derision, for your twisted puzzle setting obsession. The rest of you meanwhile can expect a glut of riddles in the near future... [subbed by EscapeGirl].
Musical Friday yet, but anyway, through the friend of friend network today I'm listening to Little Scrubs, who make music for kids, that their parents can listen to too. Their first release is from the coolest Giraffe on the Eastside of the Savannah, MC Longneck.
FYI, if you have not seen already, the fantastic Mr. Bart has interviewed the master of the weird tale, Minoto, with a result not quite as surreal as the games themselves, but it's certainly enigmatically weird in a pleasing way.
Bla Bla is an interactive art thing, in 6 chapters, that will add some artistic awesomeness to the points and clicks you make with your mouse today [subbed by Nicop].
"point and click" game, Seasons is more of a "just point, no click", thing, from Vectorpark who have a history of bringing us marvelous items to ponder and tinker with. In this "episode" we control the adventures of Thomas, a unicycling egg (Happy Easter!), as he travels across the land through different Seasons. Progress through the "levels" by cycling Thomas off the right hand edge of the screen, if you miss something (and there's lots to play with/miss) you can always cycle back to the left. Enjoy. My only complaint was the silence, some music would be good with this game, so I recommend playing something soothing from your own collection whilst you play. Personally I let The Penguin Cafe Orchestra serenade me in a separate tab whilst I played [subbed by Limbo].
Osada is not game, it is a thing. But it is still a thing you must play. And it is a surreal thing. But it is a thing of goodness. It is a weird thing. It is a thing from the same people who brought you Samorost. I love this thing [found via bontegames].
January is not so much of a game, as a web toy, in fact that might even be stretching it a bit far. It's a super chilled out walk in the snow, with every snowflake that lands in your face playing a note for your aural delight... dude [subbed by Jay Manning].
chrome translations in place I believe Mitoza is something to do with DNA and cells splitting or some such thing, which makes as much sense to me as this randomly repeating and revolving web toy thing (nb. not a game!) that is called also Mitoza [subbed by ejay & gal].
The content of the web site "Cats In Sinks" is pretty much self explanatory, although why such a thing exists is much harder to define, and is almost certainly a question historians in the 22nd century will be debating at length... [subbed by Catraven].
Submachine Network Exploration Experience is NOT a game, so put on your most miserable face and try really hard not to enjoy it. Let me see those frown lines people! [subbed by Murtaugh & Cyberjar88].
Nawlz - a point'n'click interactive comic strip thing, and I'll try to get back on track with some games tomorrow... [subbed by Rae].
