    Don't forget the purring maggots. They make good milk and cheese. Traditionally served with mushroom wine, of course. (I'm totally not making this up, these are actually in the game.)

    "...I worry that modern gaming is gradually shrinking the wide spectrum of gameplay mechanics into a single narrow red bar with "KILL" written on it sideways. Exploration, navigation, puzzles, platforming, all gradually shrinking away until only one thing remains, being taken by the hand from room to room, moving on only when nothing remains alive in each one." - Yhatzee Crosshaw
