circus: i love you. incredibly. through your jayisgames link, i managed to find the game that someone linked to many aeons ago, which caught my imagination, but which i could not remember the name of. Samarost, it is called, and it is *wonderful*

thank you so so much!

this is a rather board-ish sort of game, i think. http://jayisgames.com/archives/2004/07/kao_fu-sen.php

Some say it's even better than MS Office and they prefer it at work.

plus did I say that it's free

Yes! Looks like it's gone through some nice revisions since I last checked it out a handful of years ago. So far I'm as MicroSoft-free as I can be Smile

From JayIsGames, not really a game, but a short little two-part puzzle, very nicely done ( here).

um. i had no luck at all figuring out what you're supposed to DO with that puzzle, JP. it was just the orb of light floating ineffectually around.

Spoiler***Try moving the mouse around, slowly at first, and see what happens. Then move it around, faster, near the candle.*** It took me some time to figure out the leaves were falling for a reason Smile

And Clover, yeah, I totally wanted more. Stuff like this is so cool.

Oh. My. God. That was the first computer game I ever owned (as opposed to brother-owned Atari cartridges). I thought I imagined it, but I guess not. I'll never get any homework done now.

The reason I got the second part so fast was becuse I remember a zombie game that was sort of like there, where you had to shoot dark zombies on a dark background (with a shotgun, I think). So I just started clicking.

Hooray! I love that site. And the Samorost game is loads of fun. I'm always interested in point-and-click games if you happen to stumble across any others.

i actually bought the other part of samarost 2. i could play it always, even though i know how it goes.
mostly because i just like the sound of the singing goats. *blushes at the silliness*

but i'm a big fan of point and click because with enough trial, you can usually get there. Smile
