It’s a story as old as time itself. A young bird comes of age after going through an adventure in the wilderness, learning to find its own identity and accept itself after undergoing various tribulations through defeating thuggish magpies and collecting feathers.
All through the power of song and dance.
Of course, not all of us were raised by a peacock before setting off to find our true lineage. But the mythos of Songbird Symphony has always been universal — the search for belonging and the need to connect.
It forms the beating heart of the bird-pun-filled yarn by Singapore-based indie team Joysteak Studios, which launched the game on July 25. It took a couple of years of hard work developing the game (and developing burnout in the process), but the end result speaks for itself: Songbird Symphony peaked on Steam’s “New and Trending” category while also landing on the top-selling list, amidst the triple-A likes of GTA V, Rage 2, Doom and Fallout 4. Not bad at all.
