Do you need more birds around your Christmas table this December? Well, you’re in luck, Aviary Attorney is set to be released on the 18th of December 2015. The game was funded on Kickstarter earlier this year and raised over £18k ($25k+) to bring it to life. I’m thinking the game is Ace Attorney crossed with Hatoful Boyfriend with a dash of Fallen London, but without the romance.
Personally, I am excited because I will be spending the run up to Christmas playing bird-themed games since Hatoful Boyfriend: Holiday Star releases on the 15th just before Aviary Attorney and I plan on getting both. Aviary Attorney will be $14.99 upon release with a 15% discount if you buy during the initial week. The game is set in 1840s France and has a rather cool hand drawn style that makes it seem like it is written on parchment.
The player takes the role of Jayjay Falcon and, with the help of his apprentice Sparrowson, you’ll need to prevent a revolution. It seems like a Sherlock Holmes and Watson kind of deal. The game doesn’t only feature birds, images have revealed lots of different animals in the game. The visuals from the game remind me of the old Wind In The Willows and Peter Rabbit books I used to read when I was younger, but I’m hoping this game has some darker twists to it.
I like the idea of being able to explore and collect evidence in the game. I think I’ll get a lot of hours out of it and I like the premise. All in all, it seems like a furry friendly adventure that I’ll enjoy. Sketchy Logic has also released a trailer for the game:
So what do you think? Will you be putting this on your Christmas list or shouting objection? Personally, I would be excited to see this game hit handheld platforms like PlayStation Vita.
