ReviewThis game is a joke that unfortunately failed to capture my attention in the 14 normal routes. The thematic concept of a bird dating sim is hilarious but no one wants to see the same joke for 10+ hours. I was hoping the Japanese version would have more bird puns than it did, but unfortunately, the literary play on words were far less clever than expected, with the majority of them simply being "find & replace" of 人 with 鳥 (ex 一般鳥 instead of 一般人, etc.). I was quite ready to be done with it, but figured I'd finish off the final route, as the previous had been quite quick. That's when this game went from over-hyped joke to kami-ge. The final route was completely unexpected, twisting to dark ducked up places. Overall, the execution of the main routes was unpolished to the point where it ruffled my feathers (no ability to save during choices, save corruption, typos, not being able to skip already seen text) but the final route was pretty fun. A more streamlined experience would have been appreciated.
