Water Bird, The
You are Wehowhemah, a young boy living in a small village that was fortunate enough to be passed by by Uwulin when he headed south. Now, though, it seems that on his way back north he may be headed straight for you..."
Gameplay is straightforward IF: explore the gameworld, talk to the other characters, and solve puzzles that you come across. Some puzzles are quite picky about wording, but none is overly taxing. There are many footnotes in the game which give interesting anecdotes about the Miwok way of life, all of which are very interesting read and shows that the author has done a lot of background research to make the game as authentic as possible. Overall, despite a few pacing problems (the plot picks up rather too quickly at certain times and drags on a bit in others), The Water Bird is a pleasant, introductory-level IF that is well worth a look. Two thumbs up!
