I really like a courtroom visible novel and after coping with the fantastic nonsense of the Ace Attorney and Danganronpa sequence, I barely batted an eyelid at Aviary Attorney’s schtick of enjoying as a bird-brained lawyer (who’s actually a fowl). At first look, it appears kinda gimmicky, however this brief visible novel has a particular aptitude for melodrama that may flip a boring, stuffy courtroom right into a theatre of drama and spectacle (plus some lavish visuals besides).
The setting is 1840s France, a time when Paris is on the point of revolution towards the (literal) fats cats. You play because the dapper defence lawyer Jayjay Falcon who alongside his witty lackey Sparrowson tackle 4 seemingly unrelated instances. Travelling round Paris, you accumulate proof and interview witnesses then current your findings within the courtroom and convey justice to your consumer.
The vibe is excessive drama meets light-hearted comedy. Alongside birds in waistcoats, kittens in corsets, and lions in high hats is a solid of eccentric characters with equally eccentric personalities. Jayjay himself is a loveable however up-start lawyer with questionable lawyering experience, the king of France is an emperor penguin known as Louis-Philippe who loves courtroom drama (relatable) and the prosecutor is a pretentious cockrel named Séverin Cocorico whose flamboyance would make even Miles Edgeworth sweat.
If you’re keen on the Ace Attorney games then you definately’ll really feel proper at house with Aviary Attorney, which feels just like the courtroom juggernaut’s cheekier youthful brother. It’s additionally lots shorter, coming in on the 5-hour mark making it the proper game to play one night or over a weekend. I relaxation my case.
