So, you think you are the smartest biped in your food chain? Re-skin yourself in black feathers and see if you've got what it takes to survive in Ravenous. Get from here to there, find what you need to survive, and show you've got the feathers to hook up with that special “some-bird”. Play like a bird, be the bird.
Ravenous puts players in the role of a raven interacting with the living and non-living challenges of its environment. Flying longer and longer distances reflects an intuitive understanding of adaptations related to the aerodynamics and energy cost of bird flight as well as behavioral strategies that influence survival. Ravenous is part of the Leveling Up collection, developed by EdGE to support and measure science learning in games people choose to play in their free time.
EdGE — On the edge of science and play! The Educational Gaming Environments group (EdGE) at TERC hopes to show that learning happens in all kinds of places by investigating the possibilities—and challenging the assumptions—of game-based learning environments. EdGE is designing and studying games whose mechanics mirror real scientific phenomena, but more importantly, are fun to play.

Ratings and Reviews
This game is really cool it involves some science and common sense. You really feel like a bird. You should give it a try.
I’m getting farther in the game. This version seems more stable which makes me play it more. Wish there were more birds to fly and/or other challenges as you go farther. Down the road, I hope. Pushed my other go to games when commuting down the pile.
Be the bird
Beautiful art and video. Challenging game…hard to find your wings but once you do, oh boy. How far can you go? How long can you live? Being a bird is way more difficult than I ever thought!
