Bird Alone Review
Posted: 8 months ago, last updated 4 weeks ago.
The interactions are as playful as they are therapeutic. While you are asked deep or probing questions the novelty and absurdity of interacting with a virtual bird keeps things light hearted. This goes beyond being just a novelty though, as the interactions nudge you towards deeper questions that challenge your thinking and perspective on life and death.
In this way the game is similar to Far From Noise another game from the same developer, where the narrative provokes personal reflection.
This game has been rated PEGI 3+.
This game has been rated ESRB EVERYONE.
Rated 4+ on the Apple App Store for iOS.
Players should note that spoiler the bird in the game has a short lifespan of about 30 days. After that it dies and leaves you on your own. Some players have been taken back by this abrupt death after creating a connection with the game. Others have found the loss poignant and therapeutic.
iOS has a very extensive suite of accessibility settings including ways to navigate with voice and comprehensive screen reading, though most of the features don't work with games... read more about system accessibility settings.
