With nothing but your directional arrow keys you can enjoy Fly Guy, an amazing story-like odyssey by Trevor Van Meter that involves flying a fat, balding guy through an 8-bit universe full of amazing characters and interactions. It has also been referred to as a “highly interactive animation,” but that doesn’t quite cover the experience.
There are things that can surprise you and send you hurtling back to Earth, but the variety of animations and actions are incredible. Kind of like floating through the Beatles film Yellow Submarine while color blind. And fused with a Commodore Vic 20.
Browser-based, flash game, free to play and free of ads. This is what great indie games are all about.
