At night 14-year-old Bridget Leaside dreams of fantastic lands full of strange bird people. By day she's a miserable anxious summer camper, trying very hard not to think about her feelings for the mysterious girl detective in Cabin 22. And when her dream life starts bleeding into reality, things are going to get weird for her in a whole bunch of ways...

BIRDLAND is a young adult text adventure about falling in love, coming to terms with who you are, and saving your entire summer camp from weird alien bird monsters.

wow, revisiting this game after i first played it in 2016 is surreal a bit. forgive me for sounding a little insane but 2016-2018, birdland and known unknowns were a lifeline for little teen me. i've always admired the heart of your characters and their stories, they got a special place in me. trying to convince all my friends to play it still. thanks for these games :)
