These last few days I haven’t had time for any crafting because . . . I’ve been playing computer games Or should I say A computer game, because I’m not very talented when it comes to gaming. Can’t seem to manage the ones where you have to do several things at once, and the only games I enjoy are the point & click ones, where you go at your own pace, pick up objects, and solve puzzles. Rather like reading a detective story really ^^
One of my all-time favourites is “Syberia” by Benoît Sokal which was released way back in 2002. It was my second son (aged 12 at the time) who got me started as he was a huge Sokal fan and I’ve played the game several times over the years. It must be old age, but each time I play, it’s as if it were the first time. I rediscover the beauty of the graphics . . . and seem to spend hours wandering around getting lost lol.
Anyway, it took me three afternoons to complete the game, and help the heroine, Kate Walker, complete her mission. To give you an idea of the graphics here are a few screenshots

at the university in Barrockstadt
and finally in Aralbad
Tomorrow I think I’ll join Kate Walker for a second adventure in “Syberia 2″ and discover places like
