OK, So Here’s: The Plan

By Nathan Grayson on February 13th, 2013.

Oddly, this game about a fly that looks somewhat like Limbo contains significantly fewer horrifying spider appendages than Limbo. Go figure.

Today I learned that it’s really hard being a fly. People are always like, “Man, what I wouldn’t have given to be a fly on the wall during that conversation,” but they don’t know.
