Finding the answer to this question will take skill, strategy, intelligence and insight. You will need to become One with the Path. Bird of Light is an action-strategy platformer with a twist. Place bridge tiles to create paths through levels in the sky, then run through avoiding obstacles in your path. Leap over vast chasms, collect loot, and discover new lands on your journey. Tara, an eight-year-old girl, is something of a loner whose family moves to a farm from the city to improve the quality of their lives. Once in the country, Tara soon makes friends with all the animals on the farm. Everything goes well until one day, her animal friends start mysteriously disappearing one at a time. Tara struggles to understand what's going on, but luckily, Tara and the animals have a friend and guide in the Bird of Light, who talks to them and helps to make sense of it all. The gameplay is an abstract representation of Tara's search for The Truth. 2D level design puzzle transforms into 3rd person action.

With it's length being the only downside, Bird of Light is a speedrun challenge that can appeal to the younger or more casual gaming audience.

That’s not to say it’s not a good game, because it really is, and this is absolutely the kind of thing that should be supported and encouraged. I would just love to see what Roach Interactive could do given the budget and time to really do justice to such an important message.
