Really fun! Amazing work. But the graphics were a bit too cartoonish in some places. But overall it was amazing!

Holy cow. This is amazing. The graphics, visual effects, models and textures are all amazing. The mechanics and different gamemodes are awesome as well. Well done.

This is amazing progress for 72 hours! I was only able to play the single player race but it ran smooth and the graphics and animation were silky smooth.

The only thing I would recommend is maybe showing the next couple rings so I know where I should be heading, especially when the rings started appearing really close together.

Really enjoyed this, amazing effort for a Ludum Dare game! Unfortunately the ridiculously high sensitivity made the game very difficult to play for any length of time.
The core concept and the art/animation/sound/gameplay are all there and are fantastic, but a little extra time spent on the interface would really make this game shine.
(Couldn't help but feel that the mechanics would be amazing in an open world adventure game, but that would obviously take way more than two-three days! ^^)

Apr 19, 2016 @ 1:11am

I liked it!

My only criticism is that I played as the bird 95% of the time, and I wish there were more on-foot sections.

Other than that, solid entry!

Very polished, nice looking graphics, energetic orchestral tracks, and interesting level design. I think the showing off of your levels through mini checkpoints was a fun and interesting idea, though I would have liked to see the checkpoints a little more spaced out. I only played single player, though, so it might have made more sense in multiplayer. Overall, I did like the game!

Unfortunately I am unable to consider the multiplayer content, but the graphics are incredible and the game feels surprisingly polished! A great project!

Oh my god. this was the most beutiful game i have ever played. ever. 5/5 in every category. well done! Really well done!

Apr 19, 2016 @ 1:27am

Well, I think that there's something here that's worthwhile, but I can't get the hang of it enough to really figure out what

It would have been a good experience if the controls were not so sensitive.
The graphics were great, very good job!

Apr 19, 2016 @ 1:33am

Wow! Those are some serious graphics! They're seriously impressive, especially for a weekend jam. I played the singleplayer challenge, and thought that was pretty cool. I briefly tried the multiplayer, and I thought it was a touch dull, although, it's still incredible for 72 hours.

Crimson713 says ...
Apr 19, 2016 @ 1:35am

Fantastic game. I don't know where to start... The graphics, the music, everything's great. I'm only sad that I don't get to play the multiplayer modes.

I love flying island and waterfall. Flight of crow made excellent. And your concept art really awesome. I was interested to read your posts, the next LD write more!
Very cool game, thanks.

MeritLeave says ...
Apr 19, 2016 @ 5:16am

This is great! The flying feels extremely responsive and making tight turns and threading the needle is really fun. The world rotation is really really fun to play with as well!

I would immediately play a full, expanded upon version of this. Great work!

Apr 19, 2016 @ 7:15am

Wow! That's some impressive piece of work you did there!
The floating islands an the temple are very well made and look really great. Game runs smooth, animations are marvellous.

Keep up the good work, guys!

Fantasy graphic and gameplay. A little suggestion, next 2 to 3 targets better be shown, so players get lost less often.

Awesome enviroment and graphics. I have no negative quote about the game. Only a tip if you want more from this project in the future: include VR capabilities.

Got a warning of a trojan horse in the executable, and couldn't get my Avira to ignore it, so I couldn't play :(

SemiColon says ...
Apr 20, 2016 @ 5:36pm

Very pretty game, but it looks like you might have reused some assets :P (kudos if you didn't)
I did not understand the objective of the game initially, and I did not feel the need to use a lot of the skills you can use (such as dashing, shield, or even human form) that much. It was also very hard to predict where the next circle would be, as there is not a lot of space between them.

Ogniok says ...
Apr 20, 2016 @ 5:43pm

@SemiColon Most of this skills are for the multiplayer and other game modes, where you have to deal with another player. About the assets: Eagle mesh is from the Unreal Marketplace. :)
@JiiHoo Unfortunately that's a problem with Unreal Engine 4's executables.

Man that bird is hard to control xD

About the only thing that bothered about this game was that it didn't run very fast on my laptop, but I guess that's my problem :P In addition, the blur got a bit painful after a while.

Highlights for me were the animations and the overall art style, top notch artwork right there!

Fantastic entry, good luck!

SojaBird says ...
Apr 21, 2016 @ 11:20am

Wow what a great atmosphere and amazing art!
I'm total in love with local multiplayer!


derko666 says ...
Apr 21, 2016 @ 12:17pm

@esayitch I was testing this game on different computers and I think that blur is painful only when framerate is too low.

Drkr says ...
Apr 21, 2016 @ 1:21pm

Took forever to download but was pretty fun. If you plan on expanding the game I suggest you make the transition from each forms a little smoother, like keep momentum when changing, and make the transformation smoke puff smaller.

HolyBlackCat says ...
Apr 21, 2016 @ 1:48pm

Ok guys, we all know that this will get one of the best results.

I'm seriously amazed right now. The thing is HUGE. You've managed to make full-blown game in such a short time. Which proves that a professional team is always better than a professional solo developer. All animations, models and effects are nice, the world is big and interesting. And gameplay is pretty good, I like how you made the track in a such way that requires both flying and running. Music is good too!
Great job!

Apr 21, 2016 @ 8:45pm

Daaang this is some pro lookin' stuff. The movement as the bird needs to be a little less sensitive though, I was getting a little sick at times.

I wish I could rate this more acurately but I only have one controller right now (I actually left the other 3 with my brother while playing ultimate chicken horse and Enter the Gungeon in between LD coding)

Stunning outcome! Really great perfomance for 72 hours!

Wow, this looks stunning, AA game I would say) Add here skill tree, and sell it on Steam!

Fabraz says ...
Apr 22, 2016 @ 2:17pm

This is a title worth working on past the LD, could make for a great 3D Arena brawler.

Amazing game. Very well executed. Nice cartoonish graphics. Will play more after Judging ends, that how I like it.

That was amazing! :D in just 72 hours? wow! :D just, WOW! the graphics was awesome, the soundtrack was enchanting, the gameplay was challenging, everything just adds up...Fantastic job, guys! :D

Hi, nice game ! We're realizing a video with several games of the Ludum Dare #35.
Can you add your game on ? (it's free)
So we can include also your game in the video ;)
p.s. write #LDJAM in the game's description

Apr 24, 2016 @ 6:28am

This one took my eye when I was downloading all the games ready to play, simply for how polished it looked. Both my partner and I were eager to play your two player modes and were surprised with how much variety there was too. We were extremely (and pleasantly) surprised when we checked the credits and it wasn't all stock models either.

Actual gameplay-wise it felt a little dull though. Almost like a generic PC game that ended up on the 'Sold Out' series of re-releases. The flight mechanics are fine and the ring chasing it good but we couldn't tell if it had an end? The spinning temple was a great touch though!

My partner and I played it on stream @ 38:00 :

Very well produced game in only 72 hours! Flew around in singleplayer (with a 360 pad) and could see the work put into it. Love the artwork.
The music is awesome, but I'm not counting that since it's from outside the compo. Lots of multiplayer modes and game mechanics (combat, flight, rotating map, shapeshifting, shields, pickups),
so a lot of depth for such a short amount of development time. Nice job!

May 3, 2016 @ 7:51pm

Lovely graphics! I included it in my video compilation series of Ludum Dare games, if you’d like to check them out :)

I don't now how you managed to make this amazing game in so small time, but that's wonderful !

Mini Submission FAQ

TEAMS: Teams entering the Jam should pick a single representative to submit your game, or create a team specific account you can share. We currently do not support Team Voting, but sharing an account and together playing and rating games is acceptable.

CAN I ENTER BOTH EVENTS?: You should pick 1 event, whichever you think it’ll do better in. If the idea is strong, and everything plays well enough, you can go Compo. If you’re a perfectionist, and would prefer people to play a more polished game, do the Jam. Historically, more games are entered in the Compo, but with more people and more time, Jam games have the potential to be better (that doesn’t mean they are). Many solo participants do enter the Jam.

If you made 2 games, unfortunately, the website doesn’t support multiple submissions per user. To submit your 2nd game, you will have to make a 2nd account. Only do this if you made 2 games. Alternatively, if one game is better than the other, then consider just entering the better game.

CAN I KEEP WORKING UNTIL THE DEADLINE?: Yes! Immediately after the 48 or 72 hours, we do something called Submission Hour. As the name suggests, it’s an extra hour for you to package, upload, and submit your games. If there were catastrophic issues trying submitting your game, or you misunderstood how submissions work, that’s okay. It happens. We’re flexible. If you need advice, check with the folks on IRC. If you need an admin, get in touch.

CAN I KEEP WORKING ON MY GAME?: Oh definitely! You should! But for the sake of judging, keep the Compo or Jam version around. You can include a link to the Post-Compo/Post-Jam version of your game on your games page, but sure your main links are the original version.

PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate at least 20 games to improve your visibility (Coolness).

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crashes, win condition, or tiny bugs after the deadline. In a sense, this is like “porting” to support more players. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just fixing mistakes you should have caught had you been better rested.

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. Alternatively, if you just posted it, wait a minute. The cache may not have refreshed yet.

NOT LOGGED IN?: If you get a message about not being logged in, even though you are, it’s because your web browser cached the non-logged in page. You can fix this by either refreshing your cache or clearing your cache. CTRL+F5 in many browsers. Chrome is a bit more work. Press F12 to enable Developer Mode, then you can right click on the refresh button and select “Empty Cache and Hard Reload”. This option is unavailable if you are not in Developer Mode.
