This might be totally ridiculous but sometimes when flapping, the bleepy-bloops sort of formed a harmony to the song. If it did that more strongly/consistently that would be a nice touch - although it's certainly a polish thing since it would take some work.

Other than that, dug the art and music. The flapping thing looked kind of funny (was that intentional?) since only his arms move.

Graphical things: There seems to be a thing where some little line will move up the screen and offset stuff below it. I have no idea what causes that but I think it's common.

My favorite part was that there was a button that just caused me to curse.  That captured something special about those days when you wake up and know it's going to be a crap day.  I'd love to see more of that in the game.  It's those moments that then make it so meaningful when I get to escape and be a bird. 

I'm struggling a bit to suggest anything else to add.  You could rest your head against the shower wall.  But things like fighting with your alarm clock while waking from a dream, running out of milk as you pour some cereal, spilling coffee, etc. are all a bit cliché? Or more to the point, the beauty of the curse is it's ambiguity.  As the player, I get to fill in the reason why he's cursing, so I feel more connected. 

In that same vein, I like the decision of stripping down a character (literally) to create a bond with a player.

Yeah, that was on purpose. There's one flapping sound that doesn't harmonize though, I'll see about getting it removed. Should make things much more cohesive.

Thanks for the compliments, everyone. As you can hear by playing the build, we're going in the direction of procedural audio. Specific scenes, however, will have normal music tracks. This is my first time really scoring something this closely, and I'm having a good time of it.

Man this is awesome! You guys did a great job with the atmosphere - the camera tilts and ambient music are just masterful.

I did run into a collision bug where I got stuck while trying to land on a building though.

Haha, just a coincidence then.  Well it certainly set the tone, and I'd vote for keeping it in.  Anyway, looking forward to seeing where it goes.

I'm totally intrigued by this game. You say you're re-using the engine from a previous game. What did you use to build it?

Haven't checked out your stuff in a while zak, but I'm digging all this weird crap so far though, last game I played of yours was Love Space, and this is quite the departure. I'm mostly just posting so I can remember to follow this...anyway peace.

There's a lot going on in Catering to Birds that I'm loving.

- The seamless transitions from one room to another, including a wardrobe change
- The tilt of the screen when flying and in the elevator. (I'm becoming known for tilting the screen in my games, so I'm glad others are using it to emphasize moments and experiences).
- The presentation as a game (interactive cold opener, intro at elevator, title at rooftops)
- The fuck button. I had fun pressing it when it's least expected, such as on the elevator or with each flap. Adds so much more to the character, especially since "fuck" can be used as any part of speech and for any emotion.

So, I'm a bit curious as to how you came up with the design for transitioning between areas (bathroom, bedroom, kitchen, hallway). This is something I find very interesting as it removes the need to open doors, change clothes, etc. and just lets you get to where you need to be going.

Thanks and looking forward to future updates!

I agree check it out and hopefully they have some speakers set up so you can hear the sound work I did for it!
