Review by Priscilla M.
Feather comes to us by Samurai Punk; the same Aussie indie team that give us the endlessly-hilarious Screencheat. Unlike that all-action party event, Feather is a calm and lighthearted game that focuses on the freedom of exploration available only by flight. Billed as a ‘zen-like,’ the player is in control of a bird… and is free as a bird, allowed to explore a beautiful island at their own pace. In Feather there are no enemies to encounter, no puzzles to unlock or distracting threats. It is simply the player exploring the beautiful low-poly environment whilst listening to a soundtrack filled with ambient, relaxing tracks. And that makes it a breath of fresh air in an industry that is so focused on heavy action and endless combat loops.
