DoraCasanovaOrisinal's (Ferry Halim) quest to get you right in the feels and wear out your d'awwwwww muscle continues in the sprightly one-button arcade game Casanova. You control a rambunctious little boy giraffe who wants to get all the smooches he can from the endless parade of lady giraffes. Click and hold the left mouse button to extend your neck, and release it to shrink back down. Your head needs to be on a level with one of the other giraffes for it to count as a kiss, and every one you miss knocks the meter in the top right corner down a bit. If it empties, it's game over, but chain kisses together to fill it and nab floating stars for a big bonus.

Casanova is hardly the most complex game around, but the point of virtually every Orisinal game is to send you on your way with a spring in your step and a smile on your face, and at that the game definitely succeeds. It's a simple, exceptionally charming diversion (providing you don't already have some phobia of giraffes that imagining them with extendable jelly necks trying to French kiss you will exacerbate), and absolutely gorgeous no matter how you slice it from the beautiful design to the inherently cheery soundtrack. This little guy doesn't seem to need a wingman, but if you need a pick-me-up, fire up Casanova for another warm dose of Ferry Halim's signature style.

Awww... :)

(I've seen plenty of one-button games where you're a helicopter flying through a cave. This is the cutest game in that one-button "genre" that I've ever seen.)

I guess I wasn't the only one religiously checking orisinal.com!
Thanks for the review, Dora.

This competes with Winter Bells as my favourite game, and I've been playing that since 2008.
The main contributing factor is the music is so pretty. In Winter Bells it's starting to drive me insane.

Please please please how do I make the music stop?!?

To stop the music...

In the top right hand corner of the game screen is a "pause" button. You may have to maximize your window or scroll to the right to see it. On the pause menu is an option to turn the music off.
