The Vault

DoraThis week's Vault, if you'll forgive the indulgence, is about things that I love. I love lots of things. I love shooters and pretzels and every good TV show FOX has ever cancelled over the years. I even love you, dear reader, in a strictly platonic friendly-nod-on-the-subway sort of manner. Naturally, there are also a lot of games on the site here that I love too, and here are just a few.

  • Get the GlassGet the Glass - Let's start things off gently; I love milk. Milk is great; it makes cookies smooshy, and several adult beverages even better. Still, I was somewhat skeptical about a board game revolving around it, which is why this 3D advergame about the stuff and a family of thieves surprised me so much with how good it was. (And still is!) The object is to break into Fort Fridge so you can steal some delicious milk, moving around the board and dealing with the consequences and minigames that pop up with different chance cards, all while evading the police. It's silly, it's beautiful, and it's one of those games you can play over and over again and not even mind that you're being "edumacated" by the Got Milk people in the process.
  • BodiliesBodilies - I also love stories. Roy de Groot, Jeoren Stout, and Mick Moolhuisen joined forces to bring us this intriguingly otherworldly yet familiar point-and-click adventure about a society that gets turned on its head when a man falls from the sky in a rocket ship and challenges their beliefs, winding up jailed as a result. While it was originally intended as the product for a class assignment, Bodilies still manages to be surprisingly engrossing and well done. It's definitely intended for more mature audiences (of the rating-o sort), and the text-heavy story may deal with themes some people may disagree with, it's still extremely well presented and even a little thought-provoking.
  • Tower BloxxTower Bloxx - I love simple, addictive gameplay. Digital Chocolate prove to be as good as their name in providing this big, bright, colourful stacking puzzle game about building a city with decidedly unorthodox and probably unsafe methods. The goal is to drop sections of buildings on top of one another, stacking them as high as you can, and then maximizing the building placement to get the biggest bonus and population. Tower Bloxx is easy to play and such a simple idea, but it's also the type of game that derailed writing this ad for another hour or so when I rediscovered it. There's just something about the gameplay and combination of friendly visuals and sound effects that... I... *click*... *click, click* ... are you still here?!

While we welcome any comments about this weekly feature here, we do ask that if you need any help with the individual games, please post your questions on that game's review page. Well, what are you waiting for? Get out there and rediscover some awesome!

I've developed a powerful need for smooshy cookies.

Thank you, Dora, for reminding of Get the Glass. I've recently bought a new computer and been wanting to test it with a game that my old computer couldn't run properly. This fits the bill nicely and where I couldn't play the car minigame because the timer was too fast, it runs like clockwork on this new computer. :D

A long time ago, I played Get the Glass. Imagine my surprise when I was one of the highest-scoring players, during their initial promotion, and received said glass in the mail! It is still one of my favorite glasses to use (for milk, of course).

Should note there is just a splash of un-palatable content in Get the Glass, re: women. Doesn't stop me from enjoying it.

It's so sad. I have been here too long. So far, I have played every single game mentioned in a Vault article.

Re. Bodilies:
