Anne-Marie is a postal pigeon who delivers letters by flying around in the sky. Help her complete her mail route by flying between curiously-shaped rooftops and pushing giant fans around!

Created in 48 hours for Ludum Dare 53 (theme: "Delivery").

How to play

  • Use the arrow keys to move Anne-Marie.
  • Anne-Marie can fly between roofs if there is a straight, empty path between them.
  • Fans create air currents, which will redirect Anne-Marie if her path runs into one.
  • Important constraint: If Anne-Marie is already being buffeted by an air current and runs into another air current perpendicular to the one she is currently in, she will turn in the direction of the second current.
  • Fans can be pushed around.
  • Do not let Anne-Marie get blown offscreen or into a solid object, or you will fail the level.
  • Touch all the mailboxes to complete the level.
  • There are 15 levels in total.
  • Use Z to undo, R to reset, M to mute.
  • To delete save data, press X then W then reset the page.

Cool game, I like puzzles like this! Stuck at 13 for now)

The undo button is a very nice touch, especially since the last itch game I played didn't have it despite desperately needing one.

Love the music!

Thank you so much for putting together. Love the concept and some really good puzzles! Amazing team-work to get this together in 48 hours.

Thanks!

i'm a terrible friend but i just finally played this! delightful as always, cassowary!

There's some levels near the end that I'd reorder - 15,14,12,13 maybe - but aside from that, it was a clean, fun little puzzle!

Tremendous music, glad to hear it was an original creation!

Thank you so much, I’m glad you liked it! The music was fun to record.

I put some stock footage to the OST because I thought it should be on YT somewhere. Is this okay with you? (It's currently unlisted). I could host the video file for you to grab you'd want to upload it on your own channel.

haha this is fine, go ahead! i like the video

though, did you do something to the audio? not sure if it’s my headphones, but it sounds a little dynamically compressed/echoey. if you want the original audio file you can grab it here: https://raw.githubusercontent.com/cassowarii/ld53/main/sfx/pigeonjazz.mp3

I recorded a loop by recording the chrome tab in OBS, put it in Resolve and raised the volume bars higher since the initial volume was pretty low.

I liked this game. cool concept.

It's funny! A little bit difficult though~

Another Cassowary w.

Level 8's difficulty in comparison to level 7 and 9 was a little much, and similar with 12 and 15 compared to 13 and 14. Other than that, great game. I can't wait to see more ws from you.

The sprites and music matched very well, creating a stylish atmosphere and a very special feeling. The puzzles were also quite difficult in the latter half of the game, with a challenging difficulty level that was enjoyable. But the atmosphere of the game is very nice, so I was able to enjoy the time I spent struggling with the puzzles.

Thanks for the nice piece.

Extremely charming and clever! The music a particular highlight; I don't recall anybody doing a recording of their own sax playing like this before, but it created a great mood

Chill puzzle game! I like the way the mechanics of the game were taught! It felt very natural to pick up and it made the puzzle solving experience in later levels very satisfying! There are some good brain teasers! The chill music helps make this a relaxing experience. Overall, I enjoyed this a lot! Great work!
