Birth is a tender, personal game about living alone in a large city. Available now on Steam, Birth is a game in which you quell your loneliness by creating a partner from spare bones and organs.
“I think about the limitations of mortality every day and I want my portrayal of death, decay and loneliness to be as soft and gentle and genuine as possible,” said Karrh.
“Day-to-day loneliness can be an embarrassing thing to admit to feeling. I hope the tender art style and the silly physics of the game make it feel more like having a contemplative, clumsy conversation with a friend.”
Birth is funded by WINGS Interactive. WINGS invests in indie games by teams in which women and marginalized gender developers hold key positions.
Birth offers players unique experiences, such as the ability to:
- Collect bones & organs in hand-drawn museums, coffee shops, alleys, flower shops, libraries, markets, bakeries and more
- Solve physics-based puzzles & interact with unique, interesting creatures
- Find & spend hidden tokens to discover secrets
Release date: February 17, 2023
