Are you ready to swoop across the desert, racing as a fierce falcon?
Indie developer, Hybrid Humans, have launched their latest smash hit, Falcon Valley. Based in the UAE and made with a team of just 4 people, this competitive, high action game will have you gripped. Time to pick your falcons and take flight!
It's not every day that you stumble across an authentic, playful approach to an ancient sport. Falcon racing is a tradition that has been around for roughly 4,000 years. It all began when falcons were tamed for hunting, and with time, the purpose of falcons shifted to that of competitive sports. Falcon Valley aims to bring this sport to life.
This [falconry racing] is often an activity which is accessible to a minority of people in communities. The innovative aspect of our game's design will focus on broadening this audience, by giving a chance to all who would wish to take part. We aim to create a digital environment where the only limits to achieving this stature is how you apply yourself in the game.

To get you started, you have the choice of three falcons, each with differing speed and resistance. Just like the sport, you need to be patient as your falcon improves its agility and speed. As you swoop between altitudes you'll feel the thrill of collecting power-ups throughout the race. For an authentic experience that takes you back to the origins of the sport, pick an environment that harkens to the past.
