This is so cool! Switching between characters is interesting and evocative, and the writing is wonderful - for example, I liked the thunder and rain metaphor a lot. I like the pacing of how you progress through the different rooms - but it was too easy to get stuck on trees and doors and things. And I couldn't figure out what to do when you're flying as the pink bird, so I had to give up, which is too bad because I wanted to see how everything ended! Very poetic and unique game.

Lovely looking game, very well written. I included it in my compilation video series of all of the GBJam 5 games, if you'd like to take a look :)

It's hard to get through trees and hallways, I'm not sure what you are supposed to do when you start flying, and the tiny text game me a bit of a head ache. But I really liked the writing, it's very poetic and the perspective change builds tension.
