FAQs and INFO
Why doesn't the game work? The possibilities are: 1) the game is hosted
offsite and the site is slow, down, or the game was removed (solution:
refresh your browser, come back later, report the problem to us). 2) Some
games have ads in them. If the ad doesn't load, the game may not play
(solution: refresh your browser, come back later). 3) Our server is slow
(solution: come back later). 4) Games download to your computer. If the
download becomes corrupted the game won't play (solution: clear your cache and/or
refresh your browser). 5) You don't have the right plug-in to play the game
(solution: get the right plug-in). 6) Your security settings block the game.
Parental controls, security settings on school computers, your computer's
security settings, as well as some firewalls/spam/malware/spyware blockers
may cause this (solution: change your security settings, use a proxy, tell
us which game is the problem).
Your embedded games don't work! Embedded games are hosted on other websites but displayed here. We identify them as "hosted offsite". We use the embed method if copyright restrictions preclude hosting the game on our site and/or to conserve our bandwidth (bandwidth costs money). See above for solutions, but for those behind a firewall like BESS, you may be out-of-luck. BESS is used by schools to block websites. When we get permission to host a currently embedded game here, we do.
A note about MMO, MMORPG, and RPG games: most of the popular multiplayer and role playing games are exclusive to a single site or to several of the megagame sites (e.g. Kongregate). Those that aren't usually distribute a "front end" that acts as the gateway to the game which is hosted elsewhere. This means that some games won't work if your computer or network security settings won't allow a connection to the host site. Fizzy.com games are a good example and school network firewalls typically block this kind of set-up. Nothing we can do if we're restricted to hosting the front end only.
Why don't you have pictures for all the games? The more images on a page, the longer it takes to load, or it won't fully load at all. Think of the page as a 1/2 ton pick-up truck. If you load a ton of bricks onto it, it probably won't move. However, there are pop-up thumbnails on each of the game links and on the numbered pages linked above.
Why aren't the games organized into catagories, like action, rpg, etc? We know it's hard to find the game you want unless you know its name. It would be much easier if we catagorized the games by genre. We're bad. Unfortunately, things got out of hand a long time ago and now we don't have the time to fix it. Maybe in the future.
Can I request a game? Sure. We appreciate requests. Please give us the correct name of the game. Avoid general requests like "more games with unicorns..." Don't request adult-themed games. We can host all the blood and gore you want, but not those.
I requested a game but it's not online! Copyright restrictions prevent us from hosting or embedding some games. Some games suck. Some games require special plugins that amount to spyware. Some games do not have an online version. Sometimes we can't find the requested game. It helps if you provide us with a link to the game you want. Or, the game is here, you need to search for it using the search option at the top of the page and/or your browser's find/search function (Crtl-F). And sometimes you just have to be patient until we get to it.
Links to other pages: we provide links to the game distributor's page and/or to the game author's page because we appreciate the opportunity to host their games. However, we aren't responsible for offsite content and we don't endorse or receive endorsement from any distributor or author. Please use caution when visitng external sites and remember, no browser is 100% immune from the wonderful world of pop-up advertising and malicious attacks on your computer.
Copyright: all games are copyright their respective owners, not scary squirrel world. Contact the game author or distributing website for more info about the game. All games were obtained from game distribution sites and/or with the authors' permission. Use the 'Game Comments' form below to report a miscredited game or violation.
Are you getting rich doing this? No, this is a not-for-profit, amateur web site. It started when we loaded a few squirrel-themed games for the main site. Then we added a few games just for our own amusement. Then we thought you might enjoy a hassle-free game site where you could request your favorite game. So we opened it up to everyone. But it ain't cheap to run this site. That's why we sell stuff via Cafe Press. This generates very little income but proceeds are used to help pay our hosting bill. We all have day jobs.
