In Talon City: Death From Above, you take on the role of a clever owl lawyer… But the kicker? You’re out of your depth—your client has gone missing.

Talon City is available on Steam, and also has a downloadable demo! It’s currently on sale for A$4.50 (40% off), with the usual price being A$7.50.

The game is a 135,000-word interactive novel set in a fantasy world by Eric Moser. It takes place in Talon City, home to birds galore.

You’re an owl lawyer who is deep in debt—and it gets worse. Your valuable client is nowhere to be found… What can you do?

You’ll face challenges at every turn—The eagles don’t respect you, and the prey birds don’t trust the owls. There’s a deranged bird taking victims left and right, and you might be next.
