Play Your Gifts Right
Well I can tell you that Christmas officially started yesterday (now that Halloween is safely out of the way) as $tarbucks handed me my morning coffee in a Christmas themed cup. Today I plan on experimenting with the (Christmas Special) Gingerbread Latte so I can really get into the spirit of things. Ho ho ho everybody.

Anyway if the marketing stylings of the great coffee empire were not enough to persuade you that Christmas is just around the corner, then I have also received my first Christmas game submission for this year. Excellent.

Play our Gifts Right is a nice Hi/Lo game, with Christmas gifts, to promote a charity (hence some of less tradtional gifts included). The absolute best thing about the game for me though, was the music. Ridiculously Christmassy and just, well, just lovely. I've had the game open in the background for the last 15 minutes now just so I can listen to the music. I feel like I should be loading a sled with presents or something... [subbed by pixelhugger].

Marcy Vladdigan's Cottage of Terror
In Marcy Vladdigan's Cottage of Terror (great name by the way) your Southpark-esque group starts off trick or treating and unwisely decides to enter Marcy Vladdigan's Cottage of Terror (the name should have suggested it was a bad idea). At that point the Southpark-esque element of the game disappears, blood abounds, and you are off on another spooky point'n'click adventure [subbed and created by Joby].

Purgatorium is a seasonal, and downright spooky, point'n'click game from Ben Leffler, author of Exmortis. You might want to shuffle the kids out of the room before playing, better still wait until the dead of night to play once they have gone to bed, turn off the lights, turn up the volume, and get a spare set of underwear handy [subbed by MsInterpret, Rod & JhInG].

You break into a house in Heist (naughty you) in order to steal the money hidden within, but you'll soon just want to escape, as you find yourself trapped in a point'n'click nightmare. I would tell you more but I've just been killed in the kitchen - watch out for the (seemingly) random attacks. Not a game for the kids as it contains violence [subbed by JhInG, MsInterpret, karstenmp, Meeker & winniethepooh].

Lost In Forest
Lost In Forest appears to be well named. Well I'm certainly lost in the forest at the moment. Lots of objects to find, and lots of things to kill you, but no obvious way yet of escaping across the lake which is the stated first objective. I'm currently randomly point'n'clicking around in trees... [subbed by MsInterpret].

The Kearns Mansion
Explore the The Kearns Mansion using some simple point'n'clickery to find the 5 keys coins. The position of the coins changes each time you play so it's a (not all that) different game every time you play [subbed by winniethepooh, MsInterpret & Nefretit].

Ambridge Mansion Day 2
Blood and darkness abound in Ambridge Mansion Day 2, the torchtastic point'n'click follow up to Ambridge Mansion. A good one to play late at night in the run up to Halloween, although maybe not one for the kids to play [subbed by MsInterpret & JhInG].

Episode 2
Episode 2 has two settings "easy" and "professional". I'm playing "easy", and I still don't have a clue what is going on in this, what I assume is an, "escape the room" point'n'click game [subbed by MsInterpret & winniethepooh].

Death Trap 2
In Death Trap 2 you are trapped in a house and your mission is to use your point'n'click skills to escape. Inconveniently though the house is full of "death traps" which makes things a bit more tricky (and not really suitable for children). On the whole the game looks great, but it's let down slightly by the huge green arrows everywhere. It's a bit of grown-up Halloween fun though [subbed by Meeker & MsInterpret].
