Pocket Power: Broken Sword: Shadows of the Templars (GBA)
Every puzzle makes it over from the original game intact – even that one – but the way you solve them is a little different. Pointing and clicking would be an absolute nightmare with the d-pad, so instead the game gives you direct control over George’s movement. Rather than clicking on objects you want to interact with, you need only walk over to them and press the A button – B if you’d like to examine something. The L button brings up your inventory, and in an especially nice touch, R highlights hotspots in the immediate area, ensuring you don’t need to pixel hunt.
Go and reminisce!

Save the viking goats!!!

Johanna Thorvaldsdóttir’s Icelandic goat farm (Háafell) is facing foreclosure in September, resulting in the entire goat flock being butchered - unless enough funds are raised to save it!

There are less than 820 Icelandic goats in the entire world - they are an endangered species. Almost half of them will be lost if this farm is not saved. I visited Háafell 2 years ago and every goat I draw is rooted in this place. Any little bit helps :)

I'm sorry, I didn't realise you were mourning the loss of a loved one.

I'm not, he was my husband.

Ponieważ zewnętrznie umieszczone fotki jakoś dziwnie się linkują do blogu tumblr, to dedykuję im oddzielny wpis.
