Small Fry (Small Fry being both singular and plural) are the main characters in the game of the same name. Small Fry are tiny creatures that live in a forest amongst other Small Fry. The main objective of the Small Fry is to get to a Home. Small Fry must rely on teamwork to get there, as each has a special ability that can aid the other fry.
