Dragon New Year

DoraDragon New YearHappy New Year!... kinda! What better way to celebrate than with Minoto, a dragon, a traumatised cloud, a sun that can't do anything for itself, and more? Dragon New Year is another of Minoto's surreal and silly point-and-click puzzle games packed full of all the bizarre situations and colourful characters you've come to expect. Just click around to help the dragon progress through each scene and try to think outside the box a little. Dragon New Year does continue the unfortunate new tendency of Minoto's games to just hand you items without explanation between scenes, but as a ray of invigorating silliness and charm to start your day or jump-start your coffee break, it definitely gets the job done.

I hate to say it but I feel like Minoto has jumped the shark. I remember commenting on the first game he made where objects just started appearing in the inventory for no reason and hoped it was a one off... but alas, it seems it is the norm now.

On a semi-related tangent I totally want to name my first two children Alas and Norm. And I want to start a band called Glutinous Rice.

OK, I still love Minoto. I just wish his nonsense made more sense like it used to. You know?

Is this a joke, or am I missing something obvious?

I must be missing something. Did one action and now I can't do anything else.

Oh geez. Found hints on another site.

You actually start the game with two items.

The only challenge in this one was being able to see certain inventory items.

It was a tad short one must confess (and being a five footer I am not a shortist!)

Gotta love Minoto's bizarreness. I can always complete his games without a hint, and I can't explain why :-)

January 23rd is Chinese New Year... The Year of the Dragon. Happy New Year All Y'All.
