I can’t believe that I’m typing this, but how many games allow you to play as a cute singing bird that prominently has its round little butt in display during the opening cutscene? As far as my (admittedly low amount of) research has yielded, there’s only one – Joysteak Studios’ adorable title, Songbird Symphony.
I hadn’t really thought about where I would start when it came to furry reviews, I could have started pretty much anywhere, whether it be right back with 1991’s Sonic the Hedgehog, or whether to cover a latter day anthropomorphised character like Klonoa. But, when I saw Major/Minor glinting on the Steam homepage, I knew that I’d found it.
Certain niche games fade into obscurity and others live on in infamy through cult followings, Killer7 fits into the latter category. Sometimes this following could be argued as being undeserved, and it is undeniable that Killer7 was met with divided response when it was released in 2005. However, now that it is coming to Steam, with refinements to cater to modern audiences, it’s worth a second look to see what all the fuss was about.
