Distraction Friday

It’s in the title. Be prepared.

Today’s distraction is a cute little game I found on Newgrounds called William and Sly. In it, you play as the fox Sly and your job is to activate these rune stones all around William’s house.

Overall, it’s a simple game where you run back and forth exploring the area. While the main point of the game is to gather “fairyflies” to activate the rune stones, there are a lot of little extras to do. You can gather mushrooms, open chests, gain “wings” to float a little when you jump and use the brief charges from the rune stones to destroy monsters known as darklings. These have nothing to do with the main game but rather involve the wonderful pastime of gaining points.

Visually, the game is quite stunning. The fox’s movements are fluid, the scenery detailed. It doesn’t look like a flash game! And it’s a lot of fun to play, but not too distracting (I suppose it depends on how obsessive you are about getting points ;). So enjoy!


  1. That's different! I'll give this a try....

  2. Woo hoo! I'm allowed to be totally distracted (well, minus a paper or two about my summer internship) for the next four months!
