Once upon a time there was a little game developer with big dreams. Every night he would code till he fell a sleep. While sleeping at the keyboard, elves would come and remove the bugs from his code. This allowed the developer to create a fantastic game, unaware of the precious help he received. Despite perfect code the developer never let it go to his head, and as such he always retained the help he needed.
