Game Summary:

An alien is going to attack Earth! A group of lions needs a volunteer to fight the alien, but there is no one courageous enough. No one except... a baby ostrich. The lions don't think a baby ostrich will be able to do it, but after running into some secretive pigs that believe in him, they make a plan to save the world. The baby ostrich will have to go all around the world to get magical powers. Once he has all 3 of the magical powers, he will be ready to fight the alien. Will he make it out alive and save the world? Or will he be killed by the alien?

Game Story:

An alien is approaching earth, and a baby ostrich thinks he can fight him and save the world. All the lions that he lives near don't think he would be able to fight him because he is just a baby, but then he teams up with a group of secret underground pigs. The pigs tell him what to do to be able to fight him.


Megan was thinking of a game she could make, and her brother suggested that she make one about a wizard. She always likes putting animals in her game, so she thought she could do something loosely based off of that. She also got inspiration from the story of David and Goliath.
