I've played around with a couple of their games in the past, and have to say I was quite pleasantly surprised. They seem to have a knack for 'unique' and 'non-traditional' stuff that end up having much more depth, than one expects. Which is something, I appreciate.

First impressions

I gave this a twirl because the graphics and atmosphere remind me of Nimian Legends.
First, I definitely played longer than the 5 minutes time-limit it states
Even with the low-poly/voxel look for the landscape - the birds are way more detailed - it does look pretty good, and I enjoyed just flying around and looking at stuff. But they should have gone for better visuals, aka not low-poly: for a game like this, visuals are really important and can make or break the whole experience.

The three songs I heard were pretty nice as well, only the first one (with the piano) gets a bit annoying after a while.

IAP is a single full unlock for 3,50 Euros, not exactly expensive.

What I did not like:
- No map. The lands must be huge, I only explored two areas and was flying around for maybe 15 minutes. Map to see where you are and where everything is would be good for something that size.
- The bird is too slow. While it's nice and relaxing to fly around slowly and just look at things, that wears off pretty quickly and I want to get places and see things. Only it takes forever with the slow flying speed.

Summary:
Nice game, and quite enjoyable, even more so if you like the "just roam around, explore, and enjoy great-looking landscapes" vibe. But for now I won't buy the full game, the too slow pace is putting me off just enough to say no.

Yep. I'd echo those comments. I quite enjoyed it for five minutes or so but I'm not into it enough to take the full plunge unfortunately
