OverviewOverview

This game brings you, as a bird, to a beautiful island. You can explore freely, collecting items and soaring on the breeze. Often, other players will join you to create a flock of birds to fly together, making music on the wind. Communication is kept to simple birdsong, but this can be expanded by finding items around the island.

It's is a peaceful game about immersing yourself in a beautiful island. Fly around and lose yourself in zen-like flow whilst listening to the soothing ambient soundtrack. No enemies, no combat, no threats, just peaceful flight by yourself or with other birds.
