Aviary Attorney is a criminally short romp through 1840’s France, as you take on the role of defence attorney Jayjay Falcon. Clearly influenced by the Phoenix Wright games of the past, you spend your time exploring different locales, collecting evidence and taking statements to defend your client in the court. Aviary Attorney was developed by Sketchy Logic following a successful Kickstarter campaign in 2014 and eventually found its way into my Steam library this year through a Humble Monthly bundle. It is currently available on PC and Mac.
This year I’m trying (and mostly failing) to make a more of an effort to play a larger variety of games, as opposed to 6 hours of World of Warcraft a day. Aviary Attorney immediately piqued my interest because… well, look at it! From the outset it looks ridiculous, but it absolutely scratched an itch I didn’t know I had – I’d missed the Ace Attorney series growing up, but I’m tempted to dust off my DS and grab a copy from CeX to carry on my clearly prosperous lawyerial career!
