There? not many video games that star birds as the protagonist or feature birds as main characters. Probably the closest is Hatoful Boyfriend, a bird dating simulation game. (It? about as weird as it sounds, but it? gotten great reviews. I played a little at PlayStation Experience 2015, and loved it.) There? also Cockatilt, which we covered last year. But it looks like there is a new game coming out soon called Avian Attorney.
So what? this game about? According to the game? website:
“The year is 1848.
Paris is on the brink of yet another revolution, and the prisons are overflowing with guilty and innocent alike.
One man stands for justice amid society’s chaos. No. One bird…
Play the role of Monsieur Jayjay Falcon, a bird of prey with a good heart and questionable lawyering expertise. Join him and his witty apprentice, Sparrowson, as the two take on clients, interview witnesses, collect evidence, and deliver justice to the guilty.
With art by 19th century caricaturist J. J. Grandville, and music by legendary romantic-era composer Camille Saint-Sa?, this game promises to be a ~swanderful~ experience.?lt;/span>
Angus Morrison over at PC Gamer is intrigued the game, and says “Aviary Attorney is the mad brainspawn of a two-person team, Jeremy Noghani and Mandy Lennon, who were inspired by the whimsical illustrations of JJ Grandville. The backgrounds and music were drawn from public-domain 19th-century sources?ticking it in a game is the sort of strange oxymoron that commends it to me.?lt;/span>
The game comes out on December 18 on Steam. Will you be playing?
