"Most interactions in the game are done by throwing, so you throw keys at doors, and elderly people at monsters, and salami at everything."

Pocket Gamer
"If he believes that he can walk on lava, then he can. If he's feeling weak, he can believe that he has a second heart, and then he has one. Pretty neat if you ask me."
