A downloadable game for Windows and macOS
Hummingbird is an infinite procedural musical exploration game.
Built around a complex set of synthesizers and procedural behaviours and colour palettes, the world you encounter will be different each time you play.
Hummingbird comes with a 16-page pdf manual, and paying $10 (or more) will get you access to a 12-page pdf zine, each page of which is filled with dense, hand-lettered text originally generated by the game itself.
Physical (hand-bound) copies of both the zine and the manual are also available for an additional charge.
Note: if ordering a physical copy of the zine, please make sure you enter an address on the game's download page so I know where to send it, thanks :)
Hummingbird is best played with a twin-stick gamepad, though keyboard controls are also available.
Source code included.
