The greatest present to receive is presence of mind

This game made me uncomfortable. I know, it looks like something to relax you. However, what made me uncomfortable about this game is the feature where sincere “regrets” that people have submitted to the developer are cast across the screen at the end. The presentation of these little notes is done so in a heart melting and nostalgic way. Let’s just say that it’s done so in a way which can make a grown man sob.

But this is a good thing. Once I got honest with myself about this discomfort and took these sentimental notes seriously, they began hitting me hard. We all have deep, heart wrenching regrets that alter the course of our lives. If only we could all confess them to the world and find commonality in our shared pain. The world would certainly be a better place. This game is an artful, poignant, and charming gesture towards achieving such a world; if only for a brief moment in which you’re alone, at your phone, looking for a way to pass the time.

App Became My Medicine

I’ve been diagnosed with Sever Depression, severe Anxiety/ social anxiety, insomnia, and more & I’m constantly downloading apps to help my fidgeting & when I feel my heart pounding & i can feel myself loosing control i usually pop a Xanax and play a game but now I just pop open this app & use zen mode. I do not know how but somehow 10 minutes down the road I find myself calm from reading the quotes that pop up that inspire me & trying to collect more birds at the same time haha. Unlike other apps I get distracted by competition on this app I get distracted by inspiration. The group that made this app must have great hearts to put something out like this. Thank you so much, you guys helped me out so much, and I don’t think you guys will truly know how much You’ve helped me. Thank you 🙏

I think the words “thank you” are in order.

This game might not seem like much on the surface, but there’s a surprise of emotional depth that is very human. This game is an artistic offer of solace and hope to those struggling with the pain of regret. The musical accompaniment are short, mellow free form jazz rifts. Every subtle detail of sound and expression is pretty evocative.

It’s very rare to find a genuine artistic expression in the machine that is the app industry, so I recommend going on this short and simple journey through the hearts and minds of fellow living beings. It will literally take you no more than a few minutes.

To the developers and any and all responsible for making this experience possible. Thank you for creating something so authentic. I wish you all success and happiness and hope your good intentions are met with positive results.

I also suggest the developers other app, Data Wing, which is just as clever in more of a storyboard way. Another charming title with a retro theme and great sense of humor.
