A downloadable game for Windows and macOS

After being struck by lightning, the tree housing your nest flees into the woods consumed by existential dread. Now the bird that lived in that tree must save their own home. This asymmetric 2.5-D multiplayer game pins one tree against it's own inhabitant. As a newly sentient being, end your short existence by crashing into thorns scattered around the forest. As the bird, prevent your home's destruction by continually patching it up until it tires out and possibly gain a new friend.
