Silverybield Foss is a simple, very low-fi walking simulator by Twisted Tree (of Proteus fame) that knows where you're going. You'll arrive (using arrow keys) in just a few minutes.

Foss is the Old Norse word for waterfall, usually found as "force" in place names. You can read more about Cumbrian toponyms here.
