If you wish to kill this fly, you must first destroy your house

Fly in the House

I didn’t expect much from Fly in the House.

Its creator emailed our tips line overnight with a nondescript subject line — “Exploration and destruction game !” — which is not normally something I’d feel compelled to investigate. But I clicked on that email and saw the game was about a fly. All right, all right — I’ll watch the trailer.

I also didn’t expect to break out into laughter. Fly in the House is a game about trying to kill a bug not with a flyswatter or a rolled-up newspaper, but with a treadmill, or a table, or a television. Anything you can get your hands on, really. “Destruction game,” indeed. Brightened my morning.
