Toripon 鳥ポン (Victoria Smith, 2019)
an upcoming game about snapping virtual budgies doing cute and silly things to share online. Look, that one’s riding a Roomba! That one’s rolling around in a toilet roll tube! That one’s hopping about the sink! That one- wait, is that one carrying a knife in its beak? Adorable! See these birds and more in the trailer below.
As we take photos of our cute friends and share them, our follower count grows (obvs) and we can unlock special rare birds. I am reminded a wee bit of Neko Atsume: Kitty Collector, but mostly I’m not thinking much about anything, just enjoying watching those birds.

Species Hunt (Frib, 2012) – submitted to Ludum Dare 24 (August 24th-27th 2012, 48 Hour Compo Entry).
Species Hunt! A game where you have to shoot birds! With a camera!
Enjoy a peaceful stroll on the beach while snapping some exotic (Ha! I mean common) birds. Try to take the best photo ever! Or fill up your collection of new species you have personally discovered, then name them after yourself! Or just enjoy the view and watch the birds muck about.
Requires XNA 4.0. Should work on most machines, but if it doesn’t, let me know and I’ll try to fix it ASAP!
Controls are editable in-game. But a quick rundown:
Move with WASD/arrows
Equip camera with RMB
Take picture with LMB
Show/hide photo album with tab
Run with shift
Zoom camera with Q/E or mousewheel
Photographs taken in-game can be saved for use outside the game. Simply click on the photo in the album, then save to disk. You can also enable autosaving every new photo taken automatically in the options menu.
