So, one hour later, I finished A Bird Story and I must say that the game, or more like the visual novel, is somewhat hard to describe. There is almost no game play except for letting you walk short distances and interact with a few things. It is kind of bizarre in its ways but cute nonetheless. When I look back at A Bird Story, I can’t help but thinking that it maybe reflects the passing of a loved one. The fact that you hold on as hard as you can to that person, with all your memories until you are maybe forced to let go or just accept the fact that they are going to a better place and all you can do to honor them is to keep them in your heart forever.
The story of a boy finding and rescuing a bird from being eaten, takes a deeper meaning with all it’s dreamlike moments where, at least, I was waiting for him to maybe wake up or something like that due to the fact that the moments seemed to blend together. Real life blending into memories that blends into fantasy. There were some sadness to the game but I couldn’t help but smile on occasion as the two interacted with each other, being by each other in everything.
How did you see the game?
