Expand your vocabulary! Spiral Knights Ten games that make you think about life - StumbleUpon At the start of this year, we decided to come up with a list of Flash casual games with a philosophical bent. To be honest, we struggled. After days of research, we could only find a handful of games that had the thought-provoking depth we were looking for. Our list (which you can view by clicking here) was therefore only five games long. Fast forward to now, and it is remarkable how much difference a few months can make. Thanks to the work of pioneers like Daniel Benmergui, Gregory Weir and PixelAnte, there is now an abundance of clever arty Flash games to pique our intellects, and as a result creating this follow-up list of games that make you think has been a doddle. In a wonderful twist, it seems it is the Flash gaming space - until now known more for the throwaway nature of its games rather than depth - that is leading the way in this exciting new area of gaming, as we hope the following games prove. 1Immortall The game starts with you crash landing on a planet. 2Loved 5Coma 6Loondon
YPPedia Amanita Design 30 Questions Guaranteed to Make You Think Instead of giving you information that you want, I’m going to teach you something today by being indirect. Here’s the lesson: everything you need, every revelation I’ve had, and everything that I could possibly write about on this blog, ca n be found inside yourself. As in – with the proper thinking and questioning, you too can come to the conclusions that I’ve come to. You can help yourself instead of depending on me for help. “But Brett,” you ask, “Won’t that render you obsolete? No, not necessarily. However, the lesson I’m trying to teach you is not that you can become me, but that when you need something – an idea, the strength to carry through your will, or anything else – it can be found within. To reach my goal for you, I’m going to ask you deep, philosophical questions that will test your thinking ability. These are designed to make you think. (Also, as a note, keep in mind that I’m going to keep my own answers to these questions private. The Questions 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 1.

Are eggs safe? DNA/Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy Infocom Adventure History There was a time when computer games didn't have graphics. Or at least they couldn't have graphics and sound at the same time. They certainly couldn't have graphics, sound and enough content to keep even a human being amused for more than a few minutes. So they had text. This was radical - a computer game you could control by typing in commands. Then graphics games came along and the computer using portion of the human race forgot all about 500,000 years of language evolution and went straight back to the electronic equivalent of banging rocks together - the point'n'click game. Something strange has now happened. And now some news ... If you've read this far, congratulations, you clearly have one of the necessary requirements to play the actual game online. If you don't have Java, then may we suggest the BBC's rather excellent 20th Anniversary Edition? Enjoy!
The Superplexus This is the three-dimensional spherical labyrinth that challenges the limits of your manual dexterity and spatial understanding as you maneuver a 5/8" wooden marble through its entire course. The Superplexus is a complex network of chicanes, multi-planar hairpin turns, spirals, and staircases--even a vortex. Hand made from 3- and 6-ply Finnish birch that form the track, over 400 hours are involved in its construction. The labyrinth is set inside a 36" diameter acrylic sphere affixed to a Jatoba base using a stainless steel gimbaled mount that allows you to tilt the sphere in any direction to guide the marble. The entire track laid out on a straight line is 31' longer than a football field.
TORN Three Rings OOO Welcome to Improbable Island MoTD | Log In to see your Distractions | Report a problem | Enquirer - Blogs, Forums and Wiki | Twitter | Improbable Island Merchandise! How did I end up here? It's a question that you must have asked yourself at one point in your life or another. Probably after pulling your head out of the toilet bowl, remembering the little rhyme about drinking wine on top of beer, and then feeling rather poorly again. You might have asked that question while standing naked in the pouring rain holding a coathanger in one hand and a rather large purple sex toy in the other, trying desperately to break into your own car while two policemen stroll up the street towards you. However, this time, you mean it literally. Or rather, you would, if you had gotten around to asking that question. You know that you're lying in grass. The unmistakable roar of a low-flying jet plane going overhead, and the muffled thumps of explosions in the distance... now, that's not so good. Reluctantly, you open your eyes. Think.
