Reviews

“...a small, simple, but incredibly affecting story that showcases the power of the ability to encourage empathy through the most basic expressions of humanity and imagination.”
-Gamespot

“Genuinely funny and heartfelt moments take place throughout, all working seamlessly together to create a commentary on the importance of friendships and the pain inherent in letting go.”
-IGN

“I guess the music's nice-ish, but it sounds kinda ripped off from To the Moon...”
-Developer's Aunt

About This Game

Note: This is not To the Moon's sequel, but rather a small experimental project.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

From the creator of To the Moon: A simple, wordless 1-hour short about a boy who found an injured bird, told through a blur between reality and imagination.

A Bird Story is an interactive pixel animation with the sole purpose of telling a simple story. It is a standalone narrative, with its own beginning and ending.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
A word of caution from the devs: This is a rather polarizing game, particularly for fans of To the Moon. As a guarantee with all games from Freebird, there is a 100% personal (confidential) refund policy with no questions asked; even if it just isn't your cup of tea. Details here.
