"You try to remain inconspicuous as you lean down towards the bird.", January 5, 2015
You hear a twitter, and next thing you know you're smuggling a bluebird out of a hotel lobby in a surreal police state.

The game's best thing (besides the over-the-top nonsensical situations you find yourself in) is its replayability -- there are 17 endings, and the sidebar helpfully tracks them for you while subtly prompting you to collect them all. This could have been annoying if done poorly, but the endings have undo-to-checkpoint links that make exploring late-game choices easier.

It's loosely based on a song by Hexes and Ohs (and has a music-video link in the sidebar), but familiarity with the song isn't even remotely necessary.

And President Bastard is an excellent name for a villain.

If you enjoyed Little Bird...
