What should I get at Dairy Queen, I haven’t been to one since 1992

more about Control the game not the concept

more about Control the game not the concept 

I’m on to chapter 3 (or so) and I think my initial hunch that this is all high meta (like, a story about stories, a game about games, etc) is feeling more and more correct

Also I can go a solid hour before realizing that a battle is lost, which I absolutely love because I’m a video game masochist
