I (Robin Ek, TGG) am aware that InvertMouse has created plenty of games over the years (“Unhack” 1 and 2, “Cursed Sight“, “Without Within” 1 and 2). Even so, it’s been a long time since I personally heard anything from the InvertMouse camp. Well, the silence was broken today. As Marcus Lam (the founder of InvertMouse) informed us about his new adventure game “The Last Birdling” (the game will be released in August this year for Windows, MAC and Linux):
“Hello to everyone from The Gaming Ground! Hope you are all doing well. My name is Marcus, and I have been developing games under the name InvertMouse for five years. We have in fact been following each other on Twitter for many years, but no doubt your team is constantly busy, so I would like to share with you my latest project, The Last Birdling” – InvertMouse
Nice! But what is “The Last Birdling” all about then? Well, this is the actual plot/story for the game:
“Bimonia is one of the last Birdlings alive on this earth. The Birdlings see humans as sworn enemies, and Bimonia has been taught to kill on sight. One day, Bimonia meets Tayo, a human child hunting in the forest. Bimonia fails to kill Tayo, and they instead become friends. Mother will be furious if she finds out, or worse, this relationship may cause tension between the two races to erupt. The Last Birdling explores Bimonia and Tayo’s fight for their friendship as the world threatens to tear them apart.”
As for features, this is what we could expect from “The Last Birdling” on its release in August this year:
Dual perspectives: The Last Birdling alternates between Bimonia and Tayo’s perspectives. Follow their journeys from childhood to adolescence as they struggle to maintain their friendship against all odds.
Multiple endings: There are 21 decisions to make throughout Bimonia and Tayo’s journeys. Depending on their resolve, this story will conclude in one of five ways. Use the progress tracker to determine how to obtain every ending.
I would also like to point out that there is a demo available for “As “The Last Birdling”. So if you feel like it, then you could download and try out the game today for Windows, MAC or Linux =) And “if” you enjoyed the game, then feel free to vote for “The Last Birdling” on Steam Greenlight.
