An artistically-minded game with sharp mechanical ideas, The King’s Bird does have a lot going for it. At its most basic level, it feels like a Sonic the Hedgehog game designed by the Ecco the Dolphin team. While beautiful, the game isn’t for everyone, and that menu-based barrier to entry might hide away the features that would let more folks enjoy this title.
Developer Serenity Forge might not get away with the whole “artistic storytelling” approach in the backdrop, but up front, The King’s Bird — while not without some unnecessary frustration to begin with — does deliver, where it matters, on its challenge and integration of physics to end up a satisfying precision-platformer overall.
The simple haunting music sets a tone. Platformers are one of the oldest genres of video games, and while this one controls differently, it is still a classical platformer at heart. But you want to hear the protagonist sing. You want to fly. She wants to fly. And in video games, there’s nothing more powerful than the moment that the player and the character’s desires become one.
