This was interesting entry. Wish there had been more sounds or music or anything. And bit more things to interact with. There wasn't much, but it was was interesting experience to explore the world and just see what happens.

Really loved this game. The art and animations are simple but work great and the level design is simply fantastic. Also, a piece of advice: rate at least 5 games or so... this game deserves some feedback/reviews/kudos.

I played it in newgrounds. You should put a link to that here. People rarely rate the games that are only download

@AdventureIslands - Yeah music and more sounds would definitely help this game but I just ran out of time in completing everything I needed. Regardless, thanks for playing!

@Ozeotropo - Thanks for the heads up! I changed around the links I have up to make it clear that it's actually a newgrounds link instead of a windows install.

Without a doubt my favourite entry so far (and I've rated over 100 games so far). Very emotional, excellent level design, beautiful art and simply a great captivating narrative. I can't imagine how it feel to be a bird but this gets pretty close to it. Well done.

That was really cool! I got here by following the link from when you commented on my game, and I'm glad I did. I'm really impressed with the art style of it: simple, but very effective. The design of the levels was also interesting without being frustrating. I'm not entirely sure I understand how this ties into the theme, but I could see a few possibilities, so that's okay.

Also, I beat the high score you left on my game. :P

Oh, now this is a very good example of word-less storytelling. At first I felt peaceful, then something slowly felt more and more 'off'. Well done!

Wow, really really impressive entry. The graphics were simple but effective, the level design was really really neat, and... what a cool story! Wasn't expecting the ending I got, was pretty sad, but was still a good game nonetheless. Thanks for sharing it.

I really like the graphics. It makes you feel like this small bird in this big world. The gameplay was nice. I felt like I had everywhere to go to, but at the same time I always went the right way. Great job!

MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs ( and you will show up.

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
