About the Game

A fly ascends to the skies, pondering the pointlessness of its brief existence.
The Plan was developed as a side project by Krillbite Studio, who's currently finishing their main project Among the Sleep.

  • "Hey, You Should Play This"
    - Patrick Klepek, Giantbomb
  • "Some may argue that The Plan isn't really a game and it definitely occupies the same terrain as Journey, Passage, and Dear Esther, but it's shorter than Journey, prettier than Passage, and less overwrought than Dear Esther, making it well worth taking a punt on for the low price of free."
    - Jeffrey Matulef, Eurogamer
  • "It’s that space in the mechanics for thought and interpretation that I appreciate most here. The Plan won’t break your brain, but it’s a nicely contemplative journey."
    - Nathan Grayson, RockPaperShotgun
  • "In order, here are the emotions I experienced during the three minutes it took me to play The Plan, the new free morsel from the Norweigan indie developer Krillbite: confusion, frustration, boredom, fear, amusement, delight, joy, enchantment, and regret. One of the things independent games ask us to do is accept that a three-minute game can be as valid as a thirty-hour one. Games like these make it hard to disagree."
    - Joseph Bernstein, Buzzfeed
  • "Krillbite Studio, the developers behind Among The Sleep, have gone on and released a most polished, visually stunning and freeware new game"
    - Konstantinos Dimopoulos, Indiegames.com
  • "Krillbite's The Plan is a short, sharp experimental deliberation on the meaning of life."
    - Andy Chalk, The Escapist

This is the most touching story that I have ever been fortunate enough to experience. Better then Skyrim. Amazing character development. Flies.

Webs. Leaves. The cosmos. All that is no match for one that has the determination to reach for the stars and claim what's theirs.

Highly recommended. 10/10

This game made me ponder many of life's great questions.
Why am I here?
What does it all mean?
Is there a god?
Where is the bathroom?
Why am I playing a fly simulator?
I fear none of these will be answered in my lifetime.

The gaming equivalent of Maya Angelou's "Caged Bird," The Plan is an evocative tale of hope and longing amidst oppression and despair. You will experience the struggle of a fly, ascending for five minutes on a journey to freedom, while being oppressed by spiderwebs, falling leaves and gentle gusts of wind. Metaphorically subtle yet complex, and breathtakingly powerful—bring your handkerchiefs.

Without a lie .. this has to be the best 'Fly Simulator' I have ever played! (Ok .. well its may be the only one I've played .. lol!).

Not much on the gameplay side but to travel up towards the light and ... (well I leave the surprise to you). It's worth taking this 5-10min journey if for nothing else than to experience the atmosphere that has been created. The graphical effects in the background look great with a stiring musical score building up all the way to the end of the game. It's free, it's a small download & for those achievement hunters out there an easy perfect game in it for you.

The Plan was a rather unique & enjoyable, albeit short experience.
