Aviary Attorney Review

I received Aviary Attorney in my March 2018 Humble Bundle. That’s..some words, I know.

Humble Bundle is a monthly game subscription. It’s kind of like ipsy, but for Steam. I subscribed to get a cheap copy of Dark Souls III. Dark Souls is an action role-playing game. You kill things. Well, theoretically. Mostly I die.

Aviary Attorney is a totally different genre, so it was more of a stretch for me to start playing. It’s a visual novel beautifully illustrated with Victorian drawings. You play as a French bird lawyer.

Screenshot of Aviary Attorney. It's a black and white image of two birds dressed in Victorian clothing. The text at the bottom has the main character, Falcon, saying "Ugh. Too early for worms. Pass the Cabernet Sauvignon."

Yeah, you heard me. You’re a lawyer who is a bird, not a lawyer for naughty parakeets.

The game doesn’t take itself too seriously. That’s impossible to do with the theme, but it still manages to be full of plot and oddly compelling. A full play through took me about two hours. Most people would probably take longer. I, uh, hate reading in video games.

It’s a visual novel. I know. I was trying to branch out.

I got a terrible ending the first time through and was a little tempted to go back and fix it, so there is some opportunity for meaningful replay. And there are a lot of puns. That either adds a star to the rating or detracts one. I’m still not quite sure.

This game gets a solid meh (3/5) from me based on the type of game that it is alone, but check it out if you’re into the read-and-click style of games.

Bird. Lawyers.

I have a referral link for Humble Bundle here. Unlike ipsy, they are a great deal. I subscribe when there’s a game I want. The rest of the year they leave me alone.
