Described as a "metal album presented through a two-hour-long story-driven game", Of Bird and Cage is an interesting spin on narrative-first gaming, that still employs agency and decision-making that impacts the overall experience. It also features a number of known musos from the world of metal, heavy rock and operatic production.
Slated for release on Steam May 20 (where you can also grab a demo), the game from developer Caprica Productions is, at the very least, ambitious:
Of Bird and Cage is a unique, music-based action adventure. Experience the music in a brand-new way. Featuring famous artists like Ron "Bumblefoot" Thal (ex-Guns N' Roses), Rob van der Loo (Epica), Ruud Jolie (Within Temptation), and many others!Two new video dropped overnight featuring the talents bringing the game's main personalities to life you can check out below.
