How does your game fit the theme?
We took this idea and implemented it through our bird mechanics: you have to stay within your murmur of birds to ensure the highest chance of survival, but you have no control over which direction they will choose to move in. On top of that, have fun trying to pilot a bird ;)

Make the red bird faster please! Maybe in an expanded version, there could be more of a difficulty curve. The music is beautiful!

The art and music are pretty good in this game - especially the music. As others have said, it's very relaxing. However, the gameplay doesn't have much depth, and there isn't enough here to keep me entertained for more than a few minutes. The controls were slippery to the point of uncontrollable, and often the shark caught me simply because the bird wouldn't move away from it fast enough. Overall, good job!

I love how chill this game is! Beautiful music and art, but the controls can be a little frustrating at times

Nice setting, I really liked the music and was surprised to see such a chill premise in this jam. The controls ruined the experience for me, as the gliding was too strong and the shark was too fast. But it’s a nice poetic jam game :)

One of the nicest games I've played in this Jam.

One thing I would add would be the shark not moving over the birds to get to you... this is quite sad when the birds move in the direction of the shark and you are forced to go into it. Other than that, a very nice game.

yeah...I tried to fix that but was running low on time. Thanks for playing!
