Bored. Need really good games from the internets. Please hope me.[More:]

I'm looking for interesting interactive games that will eat up some of my mind-numbing spare time. Things like this, maybe.

Thank you.

I've wasted many an hour playing The Net.

I've swiftly become addicted to Kongregate. It makes a game out of winning games, plus there's a social aspect (that I avoid :).

I do too. Unfortunately this keyboard has seen one too many coffee spills to be in tip-top competition shape. Well, plus the fact that these keyboards kind of suck even when they're new.

'course I just now remembered I don't like typing Quentin Tarantino dialogue even if it goes by really fast, so there is that.

My addiction of choice is Dice Wars (there's a multiplayer lookalike called KDice but the gameplay is different). You will like or dislike it in similar proportion to liking Risk. The same site has some other decent games, tho the one I play the most in short bursts is Chat Noir.

If you like Chat Noir, then you'll love Orisinal. I think there was a thread on the blue just about Ferry's games with people posting their faves. They tend to be (very well done) one-trick ponies, and whether any pony strikes your fancy is the question.

These are all good, thanks guys!

I know Orisinal and like it, and I'm no good at typing games, sorry. I enjoyed Mudcraft way too much, and would play anything like Samorost...

Keep 'em comin'!

Oh, does anyone know the name of the game that was a puzzle thingy with a kangaroo and mining railways and he had to get the water to the railway thingy? It was cartoony and orange and a good puzzle.

It was Chasm, Specklet, and it was a Kiwi.

I have a walkthrough, should you need it.

Actually it was a platypus. I just checked, but deliberately clicked away before I got sucked into the game again.

If you like Samarost you'll probably like Questionaut too.
