There’s something to be said for games that aren’t heavily geared towards objectives or even any real complexity, merely being a means for experiencing something and perhaps just helping you to relax. The Aery series has generally been laser focused on that goal, featuring a pretty basic set of controls for flying the bird you control along through a variety of settings without any real pressure to do anything before you’re ready to. In each environment you visit there’ll be a limited number of feathers to pick up, and with each you collect a new rumination on life and the universe will be shared. Each stage represents an era in the evolution of the planet. If you’re looking for any sort of hook to spice things up beyond that you’ll find none here, but for people who just like to chill and contemplate the universe this may be an appropriate companion to your journey.
