Sometimes we all want a reprieve from the more hardcore, do-or-die games, and that’s okay, isn’t it? There are times when organizing the furniture in your house in a town populated by animals or unraveling things as a pink yarn ball are what you need after slaughtering monsters or the undead.

Songbird Symphony looks to be like the next ‘feel good, take it easy’ game, combining stunning pixel art, breezy, sweet instrumentals, and retro puzzle platforming. Players take on the role of Birb, an adorable, bouncing orphaned songbird as he travels throughout nature, using the power of his melodies to shape the world around him. Sing to move platforms, shape the world, and fight bosses, all while meeting other birds and discovering who he really is, and what destiny has in store.

An interesting, inventive take on rhythm games and platformers, Songbird Symphony manages to combine both genres effectively enough to make a sweet, whimsical tale that’s drawing plenty of eyes to it. There’s beauty in its simplicity and nuance in its presentation.

The developer, Joysteak Studio, is indie through and through, having a presence on YouTube, Patreon, tumblr, and even While relatively unknown and a small fish in a big pond, Songbird Symphony is set to make quite a splash for the studio.

Songbird Symphony is Set to launch July 25, 2019 for Nintendo Switch, PS4, and Steam. Currently a demo is available on Switch, it sadly, it is region-locked to the EU. Hopefully this will change in the future, and until then, or launch, stay and play savvy, gamers.
