SteamFirst: Right up front, the reader should know: A Bird Story is not a game in the common sense of the word. Much like my previous experience with Sakura Spirit, there isn’t any player agency given to deserve a comment. Here you simply control an avatar when the game tells you and follow basic instructions. I knew this going in, but was expecting something more in the line of options as to how the story played out. A more accurate description would be that this was an interactive art piece, one that would have been better served by removing what little interactivity there is and simply telling the story.
