Finally Project Bird Fly has a name chosen! The chosen name is now “Sage’s Sky”. I feel that the name has a unique ring to it and is recognizable. Now on to some of the changes made in the game.

Update

The graphics for all the obstacles have been updated to fit the scenery of the game. Particle effects have been added obstacles such as explosions, the phoenix upgrade, when a bird hits a spike, and such. The particle effects are still being tweaked here and there but I am very happy with how it has come out so far. Also some menu changes have been made such as smoother transitions, blur effect to the background when viewing the “Menu” UI.
