The board game - originally published by Stonemaier Games and a real top seller there - has also been localized for the German-speaking market and was published in this country by Feuerland Spiele. The title was penned by Elizabeth Hargrave, who is currently working on her new board game Mariposas. Alderac Entertainment Group (AEG) plans to publish this title, which is about the migration of monarch butterflies, this year. 

Nintendo's indie world stream shows that wing flapping will match the template in terms of play. The style is also largely retained visually, with animated birds and – which should help the atmosphere – the original voices of the bird species. The digital version will also be able to play up to five "ornithologists" in a local mode. An online mode has not yet been officially confirmed. 

The digital board game about flapping wings is expected to be released for Nintendo Switch in spring 2020.
