It's kind of like Her Story, but with a disgruntled owl game developer


We are pretty big Her Story fans at Offworld (read my interview or Laura's critique). So you might imagine that this bizarre tribute, starring a puppet owl, might be kind of up our alley.

HootStory is a "pseudo-games jam exercise" about an aging owl with all kinds of things to say about his lifetime in game development (try the relevant search terms "cocaine" "ubisoft" and "strippers", as well as the classic "murder"). It's set, of course, in its own charming old-school desktop interface (check the Recycle Bin for an apology to Her Story creator Sam Barlow).

Created by Groundshatter, it's a free (but kinda big) download—get it here.
