Good Saturday evening, MetaFilter! I'm going with a combo topic tonight of two closely related suggestions: pjern wants to know odd and unusual things you've done, and August West is curious about your hidden talents! Maybe they're the same! Maybe they're different! Maybe you have no talents but have done a lot of odd things! Well this is the thread to tell us about it. [more inside]
I've been looking in the Metafilter archives for a post about a free downloadable PC game. It had a retro side scroller design that was heavy into atmosphere and dream logic with a kind of a Soviet Russia look to it. It only had a number for a title (about four to six digits long) and the protagonist wasn't human (toaster? sandwich? yeah, that kind of odd). I'm pretty sure this was before I joined Metafilter in 2013 because otherwise I would have it favorited, and all my searches have all come up empty. Anyone remember it?
