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



Narrative-driven with little-to-no dialogue

A Bird Story is a simple, surreal short about a boy and a bird with a broken wing. Despite being narrative-driven like most of my games, the story is told without dialogues.

Taking place in To the Moon‘s universe

While Dr. Watts and Dr. Rosalene aren’t in this game (chronologically, it takes place before their time), the boy in it eventually grows up to become their patient in “episode 2” of the series.

Some wonderful and familiar artists have kindly contributed to the game, such Jordan B., who made the lighthouse, Anya, in To the Moon, and Gabriela A., who drew all the memento pictures –also for To the Moon.

In addition, the game features a series of panorama paintings by Joakim Olofsson, who also made the title poster (which can actually be ordered as a nifty giant 6000×7200 print here).

A Note on Stuff

Heya, folks. I know that for some who have played To the Moon, there might be certain expectations as to how the “next game” should be. And to be honest, I don’t really know how it’ll be in that regard –meeting certain quota or matching aspects of another game aren’t really things that I want to make them around.

However, what I can promise is that I’ll always be making what truly means something to me –and hopefully, to you too. I hope everyone could take them as they come, and enjoy them for their own merits.

Thanks for your kind support and spreading the word, folks; I wouldn’t be able to do this without you all. I’m grateful for it.

    so if I am understanding correctly… will this be a prequel to Episode 2, since in this one it tells the story of the kid who will become another patient of Dr Rosalene’s and Dr Watt’s until episode 2? So this would be something like episode 1.5 rite??

    Howdy would you mind letting me know which webhost you’re utilizing? I’ve loaded your blog in 3 different internet browsers and I must say this blog loads a lot faster then most.
    Can you suggest a good internet hosting provider at a honest price?
    Kudos, I appreciate it!

    article… but what can I say… I hesitate a lot and never manage to
    get nearly anything done.
