AVES! Is free!!!!!! Wow!

Aves is a R-E-V-O-L-U-T-I-O-N

Its a 3D Bow and Arrow Bird Hunting Game.

It will make your jaw drop, I guarantee it.

I am the co-creator, Omar Ahmad, and it took me almost 7 years to perfect a technology called BioReplicants, which is featured in this game. If you've heard of "Euphoria", this is basically a far better solution to true dynamic motion. The bird is really flying and is built using the most advanced dynamic muscular-skeletal system in the world. There is no 'stored' animation, its a physical model and has bones, muscles, joints, and and flies according to the laws of physics. Think of it as a bird rag-doll that is alive.

The co-creator, Jeff Anderson, took about 8 years to perfect a second technology, even more astonishing, called GHOST binaural audio. It is the most immersive 3D gaming audio in the wrold. You can locate the bird in the game behind you, on the side, wherever he is flying in full 360 degrees. You can literally close your eyes and play.

Remember, Headphones are Required to hear the "holographic" 3D Binaural Audio!!!

Enjoy Aves

Purchase in App Store

I'm with the Captain... but

Listening to the video with headphones on was neat, but watching the arrow skewer the birds, it actually made me shudder. And hearing the (albeit) amazing sound when arrow met bird, as in hurt bird noises - let's just say this isn't my kind of thing. From what they said a lot of years went into the development of the underlying mechanics, so I hope they bring out something a little less... gross.

Wow Omar, the technology sounds impressive. What made you guys decide to port over to the iPhone? 7 or 8 years is a long time in development, so I'm sure a lot of tech has come and gone in that time period making your work that much harder!
