More information

VR Pigeons is an experimental mobile game that let's you play a pigeon on the hunt for cookie crumbs and other fun pigeon activities. It's core mechanic is to bob your head like the titular animals do in order to navigate through the game.

It makes you look A-class fancy and inspires others to watch you play the game and become your friend.
