You Bird. You Snack., June 8, 2023

A really great take on the 500 words restrictions by removing all words except the subject and the verb. Coupled with some fun formatting and animation of the text, you get a very entertaining short game about a bird wanting a snack.
The game has a handful of varied and fun endings to collect, making any new playthrough feel fresh!

A cute micro story with multiple endings; game about a bird, July 17, 2023
by MathBrush

There's something about a minimal twine or parser game about a cheeky bird that makes for a great story. There have been quite a few in recent years (like Free Bird or The Familiar or Among the Seasons), and this one is a great addition.

It's in a scrollable format, each choice you make adding to each another in a chain, reminiscent of Inklewriter. The words are minimal, which makes sense as it's entered in a jam for games with < 500 words. It uses this minimality to add 8 different endings, mostly in a branching time cave-type format.

Cute text styling and mild animations/timed effects add a lot of character. Very fun.
