Press Quotes

Feather is the perfect game for this time. It’s a quiet, meditative experience where you explore islands as a bird, all while listening to relaxing music.”
– Alice Clarke (Kotaku AU)

Feather is easy to pick up and play and will appeal to those who are looking to unwind without the stresses of combat or having to adhere to a set of rules.”
– Sarah James (The Sixth Axis)

Feather on Xbox One is a great example of just how varied video games can be. It’s totally non-typical and provides an experience quite like no other; one that everyone should take a look at.”
– Darren Edwards (The Xbox Hub)
