A Bird Story is the most recent game from Freebird Games. Their previous game, To The Moon, left a real impact on me with its story telling. So maybe I went into this with expectations set a little too high. I’ll be brief about the plot as its not a long game (my Steam counter clocked me just over an hour). You play a boy that takes in an injured bird. Thats as far as I feel I can go without spoilers.
The graphics look great. I’m a sucker for that SNES style era pixel art. Maybe its because I had an Amiga. Don’t get me wrong, I loved my Amiga but it didn’t have many games that looked quite the way a lot of SNES game looked. Maybe it did and I just never got around to playing those games. Another interesting idea is that the game plays out without any text apart from the title screen.
So its £3.99 for an hours worth of entertainment. Which is reasonable. Some might get into the story more than others, personally I found it to be a little underwhelming but I found myself comparing it to To The Moon which is extremely narrative focused. While I find it hard to recommend A Bird Story, I will continue to look forward to the next game Freebird Games puts out.
