About This Game

The year is 1848. Paris is on the brink of yet another revolution, and the prisons are overflowing with guilty and innocent alike.

One man stands for justice amid society's chaos. No. One bird...

Play the role of Monsieur Jayjay Falcon, a bird of prey with a good heart and questionable lawyering expertise. Join him and his witty apprentice, Sparrowson, as the two take on clients, interview witnesses, collect evidence, and deliver justice to the guilty.

With art by 19th century caricaturist J. J. Grandville, and music by legendary romantic-era composer Camille Saint-Saëns, this game promises to be a ~swanderful~ experience.

Features:

  • Four chapters of talon-biting intrigue and suspense.
  • Dozens of colorful characters to meet, interview, and bribe.
  • Did I say bribe? I meant persuade.
  • Real-life landmarks. Knock on the doors of Notre-Dame! Loot the Louvre!
  • Three fully fleshed-out endings. Decisions have consequences!
  • More bird puns than you can shake a feather at.

It's more than just a play on the Pheonix Wright games. The style is so incredibly well done and intricate it's hard not to stare at every screen you come across. It's witty and charming while simultaneously grabbing your attention every moment.

Is it worth it?

Having never played an Ace Attorney game I was unsure if I would enjoy this, thankfull I went ahead and got it anyway.

I currently have four hours in game after reaching one of three endings, and there's enough incentive for me to go back and try and come across some alternate ending. I would have loved an extra few cases, but i'm not unhappy with the length.

Be warned though, this is less a game and more an interactive novel. A good one, with great humour and interesting characters, but don't expect much gameplay besides basic clue-finding and the like. I really hope there's some follow-up game, considering how much I enjoyed this.

I love Phoenix Wright and like birds and especially birds with human hands so this game was just right for me. Streamed it with my friendos and they made me pick the worst decisions including letting a person die in a fire. I didn't deserve the sadness that their actions have wrought. Beaumont you are misled, the wolves are awesome, they made me unable to appreciate Sparrowson like he should be appreciated, and dang if Jojo Falcon isn't the most confusingly attractive Case 4A ending I have ever seen. Play the game.

Ace Attorney with animals and PUNS!!

At the same time it had me contemplate the true meaning of Justice.

I love the art style for this game, its wonderful script and it's soundtrack. There are many variations for endings, and I highly recommend that you play through them all. Definitely worth a playthrough!

The game really suprises me. The graphic is amazing. The logic you need to use in the cases as well. I cannot tell you really that much but if you like jury, attorneys, logic and solving cases than this is the game for you.

There is only one con: no speech, the game should really deserve some french dubbing.

As a fan of Ace Attorney and as a Kickstarter backer i'm very pleased with this game.
The writing is witty and the characters are fun.
The visual style is fantastic.
The soundtrack is chill.
The cases are entertaining, although somewhat simple.
Multiple endings offer some replayability.
The puns... THE FREAKING BIRD PUNS!

A wonderful ~8 hour game with lovable characters, clever dialogue with a nice mix of jokes and seriousness, and amazing graphical design. A must-buy for any of you Ace Attorney fans out there.

The cross-examination parts were pretty straight-forward and didn't offer that much challenge, but it didn't really matter in the end, cause for me this game was all about the character interaction and the plot. The actual gameplay parts were just a nice little extra. Also the soundtrack fit nicely the theme of 19th century France (although don't expect to hear adrenaline-pumping earworms like Cornered).

I extremely recommand this Game !

Despite the simple graphic settings, the story told by this is so outstanding and trickful. Also cause my thinking of
" what 's Justice on earth". The story in this game make me have a felling reading the story written by Higaroshi Keigo.

It's not only a game , but a thought as well.

Fans of Ace A will not regret to play this game.


The text following may tell out the secret of story in some degree:

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
After playing through the first story I fell somehow guilty that make a innocent person in prison.
That the Justice of the trail process is not the Justice indeed. ( Sorry for not knowing the terms)

And the second story also very think-worthy. If an illegal act can take the true murder out, is it still a guilty action?

Throughtout the game, I feel the stories and the choices given , is always asking a question about the Law System in France (maybe also US, UK ?)

That which Justice U really want . The Justice in the Law texts or The Justice in our hearts & beliefs.

An artsy french Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney fan-game with the balls of Trials and Tribulations. And a bit darker too. Not as good on the sound track though, but still equal to or better in most other aspects.

This game is really cute. I liked the story behind it, the awful puns, the artwork, the music. It's short and text-based but it kept my interest the entire time. The gameplay is super, super simple. Don't expect anything more sophsticated than an original Game Boy game here. I wish there were more cases and definitely hope Sketchy Logic makes another game!

Birds have a long history in gaming, dating back to the mascot wars of the 90s. Games like Sonic the Hedgehog, Spyro the Dragon, and Crash Bandicoot all brought birds to the forefront of gaming entertainment with their colorful bird protagonists, hinting at a bright future for avian kind. But as console generations came and went, the medium's focus shifted, and birds were all but lost in the gaming spectrum. Thankfully, all is not lost, and thanks to sleeper hits like Hatoful Boyfriend and Penguins Arena and the popular Tropes vs. Birds video series by Tweeta Parakeetian, birds are back, and better than ever - which brings us to the latest in bird entertainment, Aviary Attorney.

Avian Attorney is, as it says in the title, a game about birds practicing in the school of law - unlike its bird of a feather, Hatoful Boyfriend (which held its surprise so close to its plumage that even today most people still think it's a joke game about dating birds), this time it's just you, the birds, and the mysteries within. While it's not necessarily an original idea, predated by famous bird lawyer series Harvey Birdman: Attorney at Law more than a decade ago, it provides a fresh perspective through its unique presentation, in both its art style and music.

In terms of gameplay, Aviary Attorney will probably come as second nature to anyone familiar with the similarly named Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney series (which, despite its misleading title, is not about mystical birds). It's a visual novel with mystery elements, in which you travel between various locations gathering evidence leading up to a court trial. Unlike Phoenix Wright, however, travelling between most locations takes a day of your time, and you only have a certain amount of time before each court session begins, making you think more about where you need to go. There are four cases, with minor choices throughout the cases that lend to replayability (and frequently leave you wondering whether or not you've made a mistake), and the fourth case has 3 varients which are vary significantly both in story and length, and altogether the game lasted me around 7 hours. There are occasional bugs here and there, but the developer seems to be working hard to iron out the problems and in the time I've been playing it there have already been two small patches for it. If you're a fan of mystery games, particularly of the Ace Attorney variety, this is a pretty easy purchase overall. It has enough original elements to keep veterans of the genre on their talons, while providing more of the mysteries that they love.

"What thoughts do you have in this bird feathered brain of yours"?

Ever wanted to be a lawyer in pre-revolution paris of 1840? Ever wanted to be a bird too? Maybe both at the same time? Well, Aviary Attorney gives you the chance.

In nicely drawn backgrounds Sketchy Logic let´s the animal kingdom have free reign in the courtyard, when the player takes over the role of JayJay Falcon, Attorney at his majestys court.
Beginning harmlessly enough, with day to day murderers, JayJays way brings him on the brink of revolution and on death´s door himself. All the while only relaying on his falcon beak sharp mind and the wit of his trusty sidekick Sparrowson.

While the gameplay itself is basically a visual novel, including finding and combining clues, using them at court and interrogation, it also offers some different paths, where you´re decisions or even lack of finding every clue will count.
The cases are fun to play through and the story is engaging enough, to even try to get some different endings.
Undeniable the best part of the game though is the humor, which the dialogues are full of.

The setting is, as written earlier visually and musically very nicely done. The backgrounds show some of Paris most famous sites and are well drawn, as well as the character art. While there is no real speech, each character has it´s own way of sound, while speaking, a small, fun detail, which enhances the atmosphere even further, when the wolf and lion sound much "stronger" than the little rabbit.

Conclusio:
I had much fun with Aviary Attorney and if you´re interested in the setting, bird jokes, Attorney and/or VN games etc. this game is surely worth a try. Can´t say much bad about it honestly.

Point Scale: 8/10

Amazing art style, imaginative characters design, hilarious lines and fitting soundtrack. It's a must for Ace Attorney fans.

What differentiates Aviary Attorney from Ace Attorney most is the setting of three completely different endings.

Never too much for another Ace Attorney or AA-like game.
