Lyrebird is a unique game,
that centers on the bird which has one of the most
elaborate mimicking abilities, the Lyrebird.
You will use the Lyrebirdís abilities of collecting sounds from your surroundings,and use those sounds to solve the puzzles in each level.
Help the mischievous Lyrebird save the forest from the clutches of the greedy Real-Estate tycoon who has also stolen your Lyrebirdís lover for his own exotic pet.
This game was made as part of an experiment to see if it's possible to make an adventure game based mainly on sound.
while the graphics are important the sound is the storyteller of the game.
For that reason there is no music in the game as to make the sound as natural as possible and as absorbing as possible.
You can also notice the conflict between the two sounds of the machinery vs nature.
You hear the sounds as you were the bird itself.
To it the humans are represented by machinery noises that penetrate the natural world.
