Niche Spotlight – Steambirds Alliance

This is Niche Spotlight. In this column, we regularly introduce new games to our fans, so please leave feedback and let us know if there’s a game you want us to cover!

Today’s Spotlight is Steambirds Alliance, a top-down cooperative bullet hell MMO by Spry Fox.

Designed by the co-developer of Realm of the Mad God, Steambirds Alliance is set in an aerial steampunk world where birds dogfight with cats in heavily armed fighter planes. You can find a trailer above.

Like Realm of the Mad God, Steambirds Alliance features permadeath and revolves around players teaming up to complete missions and take down massive bosses. The game features 14 upgradable fighter planes to master, and the game’s microtransactions revolve around cosmetic items like pilot and plane skins.

Steambirds Alliance is free to play on Windows PC and Mac via Steam.

Here’s a rundown of the game:
