OverviewOverview

Bird Alone is a narrative game where you befriend a bird. Your feathered companion encourages the conversation in the direction of real life worries while you make music, draw pictures and write poetry. It’s a slow game that unfolds in real time with the day and night matching the real world, as well as the bird growing older with you.

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.
