'The Birdcage' is an Action-Adventure Music Video Game! A first of a kind music album that is experienced entirely through a video game featuring world renowned artists from Guns N Roses, Evanescence and more!

Based on 'The Beauty and the Beast', you play as Gitta, a beautiful young girl who tries to escape from the ever-changing prison of her capture - Bres. Will you be able to run away?

The game is in fact a full-length Rock music album that is experienced as a fully-fledged video game. Think of a really cool music video you saw once, but now imagine that you're in it, interacting with the environment that changes according to the music.

Developed with Unreal Engine 4 by Capricia Productions, we are currently in the midst of development. We plan on taking our vision to the next level, and we're hoping to make it as good as possible with the help of the Steam community!

  • A Rock music album as a video game
  • 1st Person Action-Adventure
  • Interactive music-game mechanics - The music affects the game
  • Quick-time event
  • Fueled with Unreal Engine 4
  • Collectibles
  • Multiple endings

'The Birdcage' is a modern reimagining of the old folk story of 'The Beauty and the Beast'. Set in a dark and gothic world, step into the shoes of Gitta a young, poor and fair-looking girl who functions as our Beauty. She gets kidnapped by a mysterious rich person named Bres - The Beast - and Gitta must make her way out of his mansion, while avoiding Bres' traps and mind games. Will she able to escape before Bres takes over her mind? The choice is in your hands!

Hey, just noticed that this released on Steam. Congrats on accomplishing that -- something that a lot of greenlit games never did. Though weren't purchasers of Mini Bundle #3 at Groupees supposed to have received a Steam key for this? I don't have one in my account so to me it looks like the keys were not distributed.

Thank you for following up. We have changed the release date. We are making great progress with the development, but sadly, had to take more time to finish the game and make sure it's as good as we want it to be. You can follow more updates here or on our Patreon page:

Appears to still be in development and not abandoned, because of a July 21st post on Facebook.
