Record Tripping is a lovely little game about wheels, records, and rabbitholes.

It made me happy and I wanted to share.

Pretty cool, and I love that it doesn't require an hour to get through. A+, will play again.

I like simple games that are more about the experience than any kind of challenge. Yay!

Mostly I want to know where they got that person reading Alice. Is that from an actual audio book, and if so, where can I get it? That was be awesome for long drives.

Caduceus, click on the music link... there's an iTunes store link to "Alice's Adventures In Wonderland".

...er, the "music button" in the game itself... in case that was confusing

Caduceus, for more audiobooks, there are many options:
librivox.org a repository of free audio books read by volunteers (the quality of the readers varies, but hey, you get what you pay for). The books themselves are out of copyright, taken from the project gutenberg repository, so you are limited to stuff that is more than 100 yrs old or so.

audible.com sells audiobooks of current and older titles. normally these are DRM-locked.

amazon of course sells audiobooks, both on CD and MP3 download.

and, as mentioned, so does iTunes.

I only wish it would let me go back and redo Ch. 4 (didn't realize the brown rabbit, white rabbit thing!), but I guess it's not all too hard to go through it a second time.

Could we get an edit of the FPP that says, "requires scroll mouse"? I'm not gonna complain that it does, but it would have been nice to have known before clicking through.

I think you just did.

well, macbook here w/ no scroll mouse so I didn't get to play record tripping but I really enjoyed the Weezer drum-along game! And I enjoyed looking around that site. Thanks for the post.

phogirl- Two finger scrolling works for this game.

That was why I didn't mention the scroll-wheel limitation; I read a review which said the two-finger thing worked fine. I didn't realize the game doesn't quite make that clear in itself. Mea culpa, lo siento.
