Just finished a little game called Pilgrims by Amanita, makers of Samorost and Machinarium. Delightful, quirky and funny but short.

You were not kidding. What in the world was up with the beads and bracelet mini game? That was terrible and took me so long. Glad that is over.

I am trying to play the new Nancy Drew game, but the movement is playing havoc with my motion sickness. Where's my bucket?

Some people have issues with this kind of movement. Here is something from Chrissie at GB than might help...
I suffer from motion sickness too but what I found was that you can look all around & move by just using the on-screen directional arrows. (Reminded me of The Carol Reed games actually!) There are places where you do have to use the 3D facility where you do on occasion have to look up & down but just in certain locations i.e. not all the time.
