Wonky Pigeon Sure Is A Game About A Pigeon That Poops On People

I mean, I'm not really sure what else I was expecting. Let me set the scene for you: I had just finished taking a ClickHole quiz entitled "Can You Match The Pigeons To The Way They're Ruining My Whole Life?" Afterward, I stepped away from my PC to go down to the building that houses my apartment complex's washing machine, to put my laundry in the drier. Boom: from behind a rubbish bin emerged a pigeon, eyes afire with some sort of bird emotion (probably vengeance) screaming into the sky.

"OK," I thought to myself, "that was a little weird."

Rattled, I returned to my PC to engage in one of my favourite self-care/loathing acts: checking Steam's new releases page. Of course, my eyes immediately gravitated to Wonky Pigeon. It is highly unlikely that any of these events are connected, but there's your idea for a modern reboot of Alfred Hitchcock's The Birds, Hollywood.

So the game is about a pigeon trying to destroy cities with poop. Humanity played some kind of cruel joke on the pigeon, and then things got wacky. Also, apocalyptic.

But the rabbit — pigeon? — pigeon hole (ew) runs deeper. Look at this list of things that are in the game:

  • Both evil and comic game story — Use a pigeon to destroy a city with poo.

  • Beautiful cartoon graphics — You will love to shoot green poo.

  • Split screen coop mode — Two pigeons is better than one.

  • The dramatic poo cam — Drive the poo until it hits the target.

  • Pigeon sounds by John J. Dick — The famous actor who voiced Serious Sam.

That last one took me by surprise too. I guess he does a mad solid pigeon impersonation? Stock recordings of pigeons also do a pretty good pigeon impersonation, but to each their own!

Anyway, Wonky Pigeon is a game about a pigeon who poos on people. That is pretty much The Whole Thing. It just launched on Steam Early Access, although curiously, I am unable to purchase it at the moment. So yes, the world is weird, and pigeons are arseholes (with other miscellaneous bird parts attached).

    Nice! You guys should make more articles about more games that are just Unity Asset Flips. Because we don't have enough of those already.

    This game is literally just the asset pack, link below. It's UnitZ all over again.

      There's a big difference between building a game with asset packs and buying a starter kit and selling it essentially as-is.

      As long as care has been taken to ensure the assets all work together, and were legally obtained, who cares where they came from? Goat Simulator was all purchased assets too.

      There are plenty of other things to call lazy games out on. It's tiring to see Unity and purchased assets being demonised when they're both perfectly good tools for a talented designer to use.

    Soooo anyone remember Potty Pigeon? This sounds like a modern version of it.

      That was my first thought too :-) Crapping on cars, that weird bounce back when you put a stick in the nest. Strange game, good for a few minutes of giggles.

    You probably want to take a look at Jim Sterling 'playing' through the game before buying it: https://youtu.be/yPAet4pWUlo (Spoilers: he can't hit ANYTHING the entire game because of the bad controls)
