In dreams

wings unclipped

beaks unburdened by

dark songs cold quips

noise numb static love

white creased light leaks

purely kept flower heap

pretty feather fall asleep

side eyed glares

burn my skin

I can't escape the way you see me

Truly an experience that would make quite an impact on me. This game felt so meaningful yet so meaningless(in a good way) at the same time!! I feel like there was always a deeper meaning to every room I entered, but it just wasn't clear enough for me to see.

This game filled me with indescribable, impossible emotions. An experience I don't think I could ever truly forget even if I wanted to

This was a pleasant little dreamy experience. The music was especially nice!
(game at 1:56:00)

rly nice, love the song and the title and of course all the other things


I really enjoyed the visuals and sountrack! honestly most of this game felt serene, calm to me. except the last part where statues started looking at me. that made me feel unsettled hehe. Overall a great game! :]

i love the visuals and the music of this game. Very soild! I love this game sm!

Loved the game! It's wild.

absolute beauty of a game, 10/10 everything is absolutely perfect, also whats the song at the end?

a great visual experience! never played a game with that artstyle.

a short and sweet game. would love to see more of that to be honest :)

This game inspired me and my friend to start a youtube channel. Our first video lets play with Caged Bird!

Damn bubs, that's a very pleasant game. I love the soundtrack and especially the outro. I'd love to see more puzzles like the first sound one, rather than just pulling the leavers, but apart from that, it's a beautiful piece of art. Congrats!


you should play my other game THAT NIGHT, STEEPED BY BLOOD RIVER, it has more sound puzzles like that one!


Awesome! I'll definitely check it out

wow, this is a nice game and also I really like the style of the game.


such a good game, one of the best of 2019


Really nice game~Good job! (i like artist!)


This is an experience I didn't know I wanted. Incredible work. Restorative tunes & distant feels,

A really nice game! I was getting horror vibes from this and was scared through the whole playthrough, but got relieved that is was nothing. Keep it going creator!

A good short experience, the ambience, sounds and graphics are just righ

"love the music, it's very calming."


playful poetry.
love it.


I don't leave many comments on games but this was a really nice experience <3. Keep making games, this seems like the start of something great!


strange and weird, but also thoughtful and lovely


thanksss, that's how i try to live my life haha

Good game, I hope if the game has animals that don't give attention to the player

This is lovely! But it feels like just the start of something, wish there was a bit more to discover. Congratulations!

I really enjoyed this!

Great atmospheric experience, quite light and relaxing. A game you want to sleep in with beautiful graphics and great music.


Really good soundtrack.

this game is so awesome, awesome colors

Thanks Vinny

I love this! Spectacular, almost minimalistic visual style and a really captivating experience to play through.

I adore the music in this game, I hope you will release the soundtrack at some point, especially the middle/red room!

Hi! The soundtrack is up now, you can listen to it here

Thank you so much!

missing GNU/Linux version.... :( 

I played this through last week, and it stuck with me so much that I came back and just played through it again.
Is the soundtrack available to download anywhere?

that's so cool! I'm so happy the game stuck with you, thank you for playing 馃槉

The music from the game isn't up anywhere right now, but when it is I'll let you know!

such interesting environments to just walk around and look at thanks to the unique visuals and sound design.

Very cool game, surreal, creeped me tf out. I managed to get to what I'm seeing is the end? I saw the eyes looking at me and couldn't finish. Soundtrack and graphics were really cool. I feel like there's some weird, hidden meaning to it. Maybe someday I'll be able to finish.


Thank you for playing! I hope you get to finish

And no weird meanings, just regular, normal people meanings :)

Nice game to play before bed. Puzzles took me a long time to complete as I navigated in a half-asleep state, but it put me in a nice headspace.

I'm glad you could enjoy it even in your sleep state

I felt confused for so long. But I believe I understand, nice visuals.

What is the song at the end? I want to post a gameplay video of it but I was curious if it was something that would cause a copyright issue. Awesome game, definitely worth the time to play it. Atmospheric!

The song was written and recorded by me, so you're all good, you have my permission to use it! Thank you so much for playing :)

Oh wow, Nice! I loved the progression in it. I'm a fellow singer/guitarist. Great work! I'll post my video here when I get it finished up and posted!

Thank you haha, I appreciate it! I've been playing for a long time, so it was fun to finally use it in a game. Means a lot coming from a fellow player 馃槈

epic game lmao


I've just played this game and I think that it's absolutely brilliant. Any moral centre you might try and attribute to this experience is elusive, but I quite like that about it. The artistry is low-res but very effective and adds to that obscure element.

I might be way off... but, to me, this is a game about obliterating something beautiful, whether that's out of malice or necessity. The eyes watching you at the end could be your own reservations about the process? I don't know. I just know that I'm super thankful you made this! It's really inspired me to make some more of my own stuff. Added to my 'gems' collection!


Thank you for the kind words :)

If this game inspires you to make something meaningful or personal too, it's done it's job

i tried to make a different game, but it didn't work
