That's really beautiful, and the game play is much trickier than I thought at first.

I've not seen someone more talented at Flash than Ferry Halim. If there is, someone please show me...

I always dig the music he uses for ambiance. Does anyone happen to know what the track in this game is?

I agree- the music is really good. Now I am relaxed.

That is a very enjoyable game, and much trickier than it looks. Thanks for the link!

The only problem with Orsinal games, not enough blood/killing.

Something about the Orsinal games always makes me teary.

Me too.

I really love the "Cup of Tea" game (top row, click on the teacup, natch). Great ambient music and really intuitive gameplay only using your mouse. Some flash game designers have lost the plot and have you memorize a dozen different keys. People play these things to relax...just with a click of the mouse and some simple movements.

Having played Ferry Halim's little gamelet's for years, there's still something ... Tesh-y about it all. I haven't really seen anything original (cough) from him in a while. It's all very cute though. It's just that it always seems to be a different stuffed animal jumping levels, falling/floating in a vertical sidescroller, or something to blow around with your mouse. Still, they keep coming and I keep looking.

The games that I have found on Orisinal are unique in a way that is intangible. In the absence of finding an English word to use to describe them, I will settle for assari, (Japanese) of which the closest translation would be "ordered, pristine, and beautiful", but that does not do it justice. The comments that Something about the Orsinal games always makes me teary are also justified- these flash games are unique in that they are touching and empathic (this goes too far, I'm sure) as well as skilful and well-made.
