Adobe Creative Mind definitely fits into the category "Flash Thing", rather than "Flash Game", in fact "Tripped Out Flash Mind Bender" might be more appropriate. Nice. Move your mouse around, point, click, wonder what on earth is going on... [subbed by Yvonne].
Kongregate is a new games community site (started last year, but finding it's feet now) where you can upload your own games you've authored (and it's not only useful for beating the curse of expensive bandwidth, you also take a cut of ad revenue too), or just play, and it's definitely one to watch in 2007. Registration is required, which I know some people hate, but from what I've seen so far it's worth it. Here's what they have to say:
Founded in 2006 and currently in a state of heavy development, Kongregate seeks to create the leading online hub for players and game developers to meet up, play games, and operate together as a community. By wrapping user-submitted Flash games with various community features, Kongregate's site serves as a unique way for users to play great web-based games alongside friends. Anyone can add their own games to Kongregate's library in a process that's fast and simple. Kongregate operates with an understanding of how difficult it can be for talented game developers - from the aspiring gamesmith to the independent studio - to get the recognition and compensation that they deserve. That's why Kongregate shares microtransaction and advertising revenue with contributing developers, who retain the full rights to their games.[subbed by JhInG & OpPop]. UPDATE: According to Emily from Kongregate the requirement to sign up to play will be dropped within the next few weeks, so if you have a hang-up over signing-up check back on the site later this month.
Jay's Flash Game Design Competition 2 in my current jet-lagged haze which would have been a major omission. The last competition resulted in same great games (and not just the winners) and I'm confident round 2 will see us all being delivered some more quality gaming fun. Game creators get on over there now, read the details and get creating, there's glory and cash prizes to be had. The rest of us will wait with bated breath.
Elf Yourself! Seasonal, but frankly quite disturbing, fun. Watching myself is freaking me out. Just how camp can a web toy make you look? [subbed by nick s the hamster & karstenmp]. PS. If you like post a link to your own version in the comments, preferably with a picture of yourself, and not me :)
MOTAS addicts out there is that your latest fix, aka levels 14-16, is available to play now. Now it really will be a merry Christmas for you... [subbed by Malia & Mantari]. UPDATE: And there's a level 17 now as well [thanks Mantari].
The Snowman", is Irn Bru's Christmas advertising campaign "Irn-Bru Snowman". Currently playing on a television near you if you're in Scotland (so I'm told), and available on-line for the rest of us. And if you don't know what Irn Bru is, it is of course the non alcoholic beverage famously "made in Scotland from girders" [subbed by didn't leave a name].
Mwahahahaha! I have Santa under my control, and, ok, I guess you could too, with the Simon Sez Santa web toy. Type in your command and Santa will do your beckoning! Mwahahahaha! Fortunately being such a group of fine upstanding adults I know that we won't take this as our cue to make Santa kiss Rudolph, get drunk, or fart. That would just be childish, and we would never do that... would we? [subbed by nick s the hamster].
itsredagain.com on my morning cup of coffee, I started tinkering with the $tarbucks "build your own Flash Christmas card" web-toy-thing I found there to build you all a Happy Point'n'Click Christmas Card. And before you ask, yes of course that's my voice the snowman uses... [via my vanilla latte].
SignBot - make your own animated scrolling text LED sign. My bizarre addiction to on-line sign generators means that I love this for no other reason than it exists. Excellent [via Red Ferret].
Danish Advent Calendar which looks like it has a different mini puzzle hidden behind each window - today you get to build a little Santa puppet type toy. While you're on the site, also take a look at the homepage for the site which is also cute and has plenty of hidden features top play with. Excellent. That's set me up with some Christmas spirit to face the day [subbed by catraven].
