I was playing without my headphones on and almost flagged this post. My apologies. It is great.

Apparently this needs the latest Flash client or something. There's also a download for Windows here

That was great.

If you look real close you'll see a heart in the chandelier.

I didn't know how to use the weapons. I guess I shoulda read the manual first. Not that it mattered.

Now I'm a hero. Yay. What's next? Ooh. They got videos of this game at YouTube, I'll bet.

ProTip: Read the manual before you attempt to fight Grinning Colossus. I didn't even know I had the axe attack the first time I played.

in opera you can add fire to the context menu, makes the game really easy

Riddle me this, Batman! How come if an infinite number of axes can't take out the big bad, that one measley little chandelier does the trick? Huh? HUH!? I know you are, but what am I!? Of course, the truth is the game leaves you trapped inside the building with a broken chandelier and a rank grinning colossus carcass. Forever. Insert maniacal laughter here.

Game over, man! Game over!

Weirdly, I managed to kill it with the axes. No lie.

It's great how context can turn a mediocre song into something wunderbar. Fuck being that guy, I want to be this guy. He has all the cheat codes and knows how to work a bowler!

So, its like portal, but with a shorter game, and a funny song at the end.

Its like the reader's digest version of portal really.

If you leave it open in a tab for a couple hours, Jesus sings to you.

The MeFi guild Progress Quest raid is at 6:00. I don't want everyone getting distracted by this game and showing up late. Again.

Don't worry if you can't figure it out. I saved you all...

If anyone's interested, I wrote some rope burning scripts. Might help out a little bit...
