Freebird Games A Bird Story launched on Friday, the very setup is dangerously tearjerky: a boy finds a bird with an injured wing. People who played #TotheMoon, will also be pleased to know #Freebird has something more devious planned for the not-sequel. However you will be pleased to note A Bird Story is receiving a “Very Positive” on Steam #reviews.
Developers Freebird Games call it an “interactive pixel-animation … told through a dialogue-free blend between reality and imagination.” This is the extent of my knowledge, having not played it yet and not wanting to poke around lest we learn too much. Maybe the bird dies. Or the boy dies. Or they both die. Or the bird gets better and flies away and it fills the boy with hope. Or the boy dies and it turns out his dying thought was a tragic dream about dying together with a poorly pigeon because even that was more hopeful than anything in his whole miserable life.
