Flatland: Fallen Angle [Flash] is a Noir-influenced game inspired by Edwin Abbot's 1884 novella Flatland: A Romance of Many Dimensions [Previously]. The streets in this scenario may not appear rain-drenched, but perceiving the Z-axis is a luxury few people in this city can afford...

Might want to add a [Unity] note/tag/warning too.
