Looking for a flash game about a robot assembly line... [more inside]
One of the favorite games of all time is Sky Odyssey, which was (if memory serves) a launch title for the Playstation 2. It was what could best be described as an "adventure flight simulator", in that the player piloted his aircraft (the default, and first in an eventual large roster of craft, was a bi-wing prop) through somewhat fantastic environments such as canyons and caves, and performed improbable tasks like refueling from a moving railroad, or piloting a plane with floats along an incredibly rapid, treacherous river. Can anybody suggest a flight sim (non-combat is preferred) for Windows PC with a similar focus as that?

Help me make a gift for a friend. I have a friend that enjoys shopping at the the Hobby Lobby / Michaels kind of stores, and she also likes board games. Help me adapt a board game rule set that would go nicely with shopping at such an establishment. (One problem, she hates Monopoly - so it can't be a Monopoly adaptation.) She really likes Taboo, but I can't think how to work it in with this theme.

Types of Games: I have come across various attempts to catalogue the possible varieties of stories that exist. The basic assumption being that all plots (narratives?) can be be boiled down to one among only a few types e.g. Hero leaves the kingdom; Hero steals fire, etc. I am looking for a similar classification system for GAMES, that is: how many fundamental types/kinds of game are there?

Recently I've started working with a few people on designing and developing a suite of casual games. We're very competent on the technical side of things, but would like to spend some time reading up and trying to understand what makes a game fun. To that end, I was hoping that people might have suggestions on some books, blogs, or other resources that help people understand how to design fun games. [more inside]

Does anyone remember this old game that came bundled with windows 95 (or possibly 98)? It involved walking around collecting different boots that let you walk across fire, ice, ect. I think it may have been called something like sim's sims or something like that. Pardon my lack of usable description of the game - I was 6 when I played it, so my memory is a bit fuzzy. Thanks! -Charlie

Is there a timer that will keep track of how much I spend on a game? I use games to practice my typing and I want to log my practice hours. I've googled the subject, and what I've found is programs that turn the game off after a certain time has passed. I want to play MORE, not less. Is there something out there that will do that?

I'm looking for the online equivalent of a dollhouse, or Lego or Playmobil people — a Flash/Java/whatever app that lets the user dress up a bunch of characters with different clothes/props/features/whatever and arrange them in a scene. I know I've seen stuff like this on websites for kids. The catch is, we need this for a psycholinguistics experiment we're running, which means we need to be able to run the app on our own server and record the user's actions (with consent, of course). Does something like this exist? [more inside]
