BirdGut is a hand-drawn 2d puzzle-platformer from the perspective of an outcast bee who gets eaten by a bird, and discovers that the bird's internal organs are not organs at all, but facilities in which the consumed insects are brainwashed and enslaved. Experience this bizarre one-man project for yourself.

Another Update!

Hello again,
After reading more feedback and watching more playthroughs, it has come to my attention that my game is quite a bit harder than I intended. In this update, I hope to ease some unnecessary frustration, as well as fix a few bugs.

Changes include:
  • The "Must Be This Talented" ride is a little easier now
  • The venus fly traps are a little slower
  • There is no more lag in the bolt/screw laser drop part (also fewer lasers)
  • Removed the glitch where you get stuck floating in the air after the colon
  • Added a pipe to the large intestines so you can't get stuck after reloading
  • Fixed a few other saving and layering issues
Thanks again for all the helpful feedback and support, you're all awesome!

P.S. for speedrunners, the railcart still takes the same amount of time, the only new time-saver is the pipe in the large intestines.

Bug Fix Update!

Hello all,
I've been watching over the community and playthroughs online, and gathering a list of bugs. Here's a patch that should fix many of them!

  • New Music from Taylor Baum and Miguel Arada to fill the quiet
  • A shorter respawn time
  • Solved the crane crates, trash cart, leaf, missile cap and elevator soft locks.
  • Removed the checkpoint that lets you skip the camera guns in Stomach City
  • You can't go out of bounds on top of the hive anymore, sorry
  • Fixed several sprite layering issues
  • And more

Thank you all for the kind words and helpful feedback. I am blessed to have such a friendly group of people playing my game.

About This Game

BirdGut is a hand-drawn 2d puzzle-platformer set inside the internal organs of a bird.

A bee hatches in the hive, but something's wrong. Born different from the others, the bee is exiled from the hive and forced to survive the world on its own. That is, until a bird attacks and eats it.
But that's only the beginning... Inside the bird, all of the bugs that it eats are brainwashed and put to work in fantastical, mechanical factories that exist in the place of its organs, except for the outcast bee, whose very disability prevents them from being brainwashed. The bee takes it upon itself to destroy the massive bird from the inside out, and free all the enslaved critters within.


  • A curious hand-drawn art style, with plenty of quirky moving parts
  • A wealth of unique environments to explore, each with their own special obstacles and puzzles
  • Physics-based fun, and classic platforming
  • A diverse cast of insect characters
  • Three separate endings to choose from
  • Hidden Secrets in every level
  • 22 achievements to collect
  • Giant worms
