I know it's been pretty quiet around here as far as updates go, but that will change now that I just submitted the SVG project I have been working on day and night to finish.
So, until I can get caught up with all my emails and game link suggestions that have been piling up, I'll leave you with this point-and-click game that Sun2dragon suggested.
Aquaria is a Flash adventure game created by So of Japan and featured at so-room.com along with several other Flash animations and fun interactive works. Yes, the game is in Japanese, and yet is filled with beautiful graphics and scenes like the one pictured. So far, I have not heard any sound at all in it. Here is what the author says about the game:
Escape from the mysterious ruin of Aquaria through solving puzzles and discovering the meaning of secret codes! Click to find the hints to solving the puzzles. Look closely for hints in simple objects.
Seeing a "pattern" in symbols, objects, etc. is the key to understanging the codes of Aquaria.
