James The Zebra Games is the intros, the games are ok, but the intros are priceless, and James The Deep Sea Zebra doesn't disappoint. In this game James dons a snorkel to go deep sea diving and encounters a sea monster. Complete the first game once and a couple of other games are unlocked on the main menu [subbed by nick s the hamster].
point'n'click for me this Monday, as both Wogger Mini 10 and Wogger Mini 11 were released while I was hibernating over the weekend [subbed by Not me, Kate, Troy, sarahbear, Stranger, azure, Lara-Jane Fuller, jorjannw & anon].
Boreal Adventure you must complete various different point'n'click missions, most of which, from what I have seen, involve helping different animals in different ways. The game is obviously for kids, but it's fun for all to play, and I found the whole design and idea rather endearing and pleasant to adventure through. A nice game for winding down on a Friday [subbed by winniethepooh].
Die Reise Durch Den Klang is a German point'n'click game involving bats, I can't tell you much more than that as I don't understand German, it is terribly cute though [subbed by winniethepooh].
point'n'click game from Volkswagen, made to promote the Golf GTI, there's a lot of car action in GTI Game. The game takes place over 5 levels, with each level against the clock, with the countdown seeming to just race down, but I assume that's because the GTI is fast (er... geddit?). If you grow to love being insulted by the German host as you fail to complete a level within the time limit once again (masochist), you can even download the insults from the goodies page. Nice [subbed by winniethepooh].
Renegade's new point'n'click game is handily summarized in it's title, "Escape The Room And Do A Few Other Things Too". There's not much more to say that that, although as with all the games in this series you might want to book your clicking finger into an RSI clinic ready for when you have finished playing [subbed by winniethepooh & UnbornTurd].
episode 8 was the last one, but I was wrong as now here's Wogger Mini 9, another short, but pleasant point'n'clicker for us to enjoy. I'm guessing there'll be at least one more episode now, but I have no idea if there will be any more after that.
Vanishing Point is an odd game. Released in parts (only the first set of puzzles is out currently), it seems to be a viral campaign for Windows Vista, the game features point'n'click puzzles, but they are tied to special real world events, so I suspect there is an element of ARG to the whole thing too (especially looking at some of the sites discussing it - see below). Anyway, I'm going to hand over to Mountain Girl, who submitted this, and had a lot more to say on the subject that I can hope to come with sitting here at my work desk:
You can use your mad point'n'click skillz and have a little real world adventure playing Microsoft's Vanishing Point Game. Curious individuals gathered in front of the Bellagio Fountains in Las Vegas on January 9, to watch a genius named Loki deliver launch a game as part of a viral marketing ad for Windows Vista Operating system. Billing herself as a genius and "Enigma Director, the beautiful Loki enticed an internet audience to participate in the upcoming "launch." Through various pre-game puzzles she promised, "this will be a lift-off like the world has never seen" And to the winner of the game, "I will make that person famous in a way the world has not seen before. Their name will be repeated as many times as there are... grains of sand on a beach." The game revealed itself as a beautiful point and click puzzle game that is logic based. There will be 12 puzzles each week launching from a world event. The clues given during the live event are imperative to solving that weeks group of online puzzles. From the site: "The grand prize winner will be one of the next who can claim to have been to the ultimate vanishing point. The Rocketplane XP Vehicle is a four-seat fighter-sized vehicle fitted with a delta wing and a V-tail which provide good flight characteristics both subsonically and supersonically. The vehicle is powered by both turbojet engines and a rocket engine, enabling it to accelerate to speeds just over 3,500 feet per second (2,386 miles per hour) and reach altitudes in excess of 330,000 feet (100 kilometers) providing the sensation of weightlessness for three to four minutes! This prize package also includes a Windows Vista based AMD powered Dell desktop pc, 24" widescreen monitor, Zune digital media player, an Xbox 360 gaming console, three Games for Windows game titles, a Microsoft LifeCam VX-6000, Microsoft Office Ultimate 2007, and $50,000 cash to help defray the cost of taxes. There are 3 more real world events and 48 total puzzles, plus maybe a few hidden ones ;) Read more at UF:[subbed by Mountain Girl].

Atrocitys 2: The Revenge, as the name would suggest, is the follow up to Atrocitys, and is another slice of point'n'click horror, partly a game, but more of an interactive story. Once again this is not one to let the kids play, and if you are of a nervous disposition you might want to keep a couch handy to hide behind. Not the one in the picture above though... [subbed by Jayne].
Emmerdale Murder Mystery is a point'n'click murder mystery, with a cash prize (I didn't find the detail, but I suspect the prize is UK only, you can still play though), tied into long running British soap opera "Emmerdale". Your task, as you might expect, is to find whodunnit. I'm proud to say I know very little about the show (it's utter trash) despite living in the right country to see it, other than it's basic premise - it concerns the non-so-typical lives of farming folk. And I also know it's (very familiar if you watch UK TV) theme tune - which is entertainingly (and I have to admit rather nicely) recreated in a choir style in the game. However having said all that the game seems to be pretty good, even though the show sucks, so happy sleuthing [subbed by winniethepooh].
Revenge For Sonia someone has killed your sister Sonia (and I thought I was an only child), and you have to point'n'click your way around their home looking for evidence to link them to the crime. I do love a good crime drama :) Nice graphical style, and the game-play will remind you of SSSG, which is no bad thing [subbed by Nicop & hyperkinetic].
Puzzle Box (by merj) on the face of it is a seemingly complex point'n'click puzzle, resembling some sort of complex 3D lock. However once you start to play you'll quickly find it's a lot easier than you anticipated, and your ear drums will soon be assaulted with the reward at the end of the game [subbed by Sophie & winniethepooh].
