Lovely game. 😊
Follow the blackbird
Follow the blackbird is a hand-drawn 2d game made in a form of comics with lovely watercolour illustrations. Follow the heart-warming story about little adventrure of Sonya and the blackbird. As the story unfolds, couple of light puzzles will be on your way.

P.S. Actually, the main character was created one week before the Jam started, but Ioved Sonya a lot and decided to make another story about her (however the game art was created during GPJam). If you enjoyed the game you might also check Sonya's other adventure:

Love the game so far! i don't really understand the animal-tree puzzle, do you have any tips? :3
thank you! you need to find shapes of the animals in the trees: just click and move one of the animals and try to find to which of the branches it matches. hope you will manage:)
Absolutely gorgeous! Loved every bit of it. <3
I am happy you enjoyed it! you might also want to check two other games following the same story:)
Very beautiful and the puzzle elements were challenging and fun!

beautiful like "Trust the bird" :)
Beautiful. No other words can give it more praise.
Hi when will this be available on windows? I really want to play your game :<<<
sure, i can make windows version - maybe in couple of days. the browser version doesn't work for you?
Oh my gosh thank you so much, I just wanted to play this even without internet connection haha. Sorry for the bother
I'm too of the same old-fashioned kind: I like to download and keep such beautiful and exceptional games in my indie-games treasure chest. :)
I just uploaded the windows version
I can translate your game into Spanish, if you wish.
I really enjoyed the calmness of this game. And You have no idea how much I appreciate the hand drawn water color. Great job!
Very well thought game. I liked the soothing music and puzzle was quite nice. Nice work.
Very sweet game. I really enjoyed that. Nice puzzles and the visuals are great. Really peaceful experience (and the music is really nice too). Great work and thanks for sharing your art!
Really beautiful, visuals and story are so good, loved the soundtrack and the puzzles as well.
Congrats on making it in one week, really impressive
Anastasia, this is a really remarkable experience. I am someone who absolutely adores more narratively driven and expressionistic games, and this really resonated with me.
The level of polish that you put into the presentation of the story, the visuals/effects, and the puzzles was absolutely astonishing!
Thank you for making this beautiful piece.
Nice game! Lovely! Super nice art/illustrations!
Wow , peaceful atmosphere and professional quality. You should also publish books.
thank you! being honest, such drawing style is something unusual for me, so i am really happy you find it nicely done:)
This game was absolutely beautiful! you did a wonderful job and your art was amazing.
This was just Wonderful!!! All the feels. Bunny was real hard to find. Great art, and music which just oozes emotion. Loved this. Default resolution could have been set bigger. Fan got a bit cut off in some scenes. Great job
