Homeless Pigeon is a passive desktop companion!

Have you ever wanted a pigeon on your screen? Well, now you can! Adopt your homeless pigeon now!


You can leave your pigeon alone  and check on it every now and then. Or you can pet the pigeon - With enough care and love maybe it'll decide to befriend you and follow you around.


Any feedback is welcome :) Would love to hear your experience with your pigeon and suggestions for activities you'd like to do and see.

I love him :))))))) he's so cute I play w/ him during school while I write essays and stuff, he just kinda chills and watches me write.

for me it just shows up as a pigeon on a black screen not on my desktop and i dont think thats supposed to happpen 

Yeah sorry im dumb

how do you actavate it

How did you make the background transparent on unity? I'm trying to make mine transparent, but there are basically no tutorials and they only give me black screen. Plz holp

Hello Gogozooom,

Wonderful to hear that you're inspired to create your own transparent game. 

I have also ran in black screen issues that randomly occur. I think for me what fixed the issue was changing the version of Unity. 

I'd be happy to help you on your dev journey

I followed this tutorial 

And it helped me a lot. also, the pictures allover the page have different expressions of the pigeon, Why aren't they in the actual program? are you still experimenting with them? 

Also, (Sorry for commenting a lot) I could add more features to the game for you, If you want. I paused on all the games I have on unity. and think this could be worth my time!

im also planning on a desktop companion unity game know how make it transparent 
would be nice to detect if player types text
sadly cant detect other windows on desktop

it''s realy cute bro but can you had a command to get more pigeon and remove a bird and make a little game

(you're the best bro)

WumpusFBI! Thank you for the kind message! :) 

I have had ideas for mini games perhaps like dodging game where you need to feed the pigeon to avoid obstacles. 

Also had this idea where you could send the pigeon on mini adventures and it'd find loot that it can wear. hahaha 

I love this, but it would be helpful to have the program to show up in the arrow taskbar (the option is not available for me) and have right clicking on the icon or the bird or nest itself create a dropdown menu with options such as turning the program off like shimeji

I use shimeji over this because of the lack of an off button. I would prefer not to use task manager to shut the program down every time. 

I adore the pigeon though.

Hello Keeping!

Apologies for my inactivity and delayed response.

Oh! Thank you for the inspirations and ideas. I'll try to incorporate a better UI/UX experience so that users don't have to force quit the application. 

How I would quit it is by either clicking the nest or the bird and pressing alt + f4, or simply doing alt + tab and X-ing it out from there

So far I'm liking this Homeless Pigeon <3! But I'd like to add some suggestions, like maybe we can interact with it too by right clicking on the Pigeon and feeding it seeds or bread and taking it a bath. Or it should also try to follow the cursor around. And maybe it could fly around too! Also we should also try naming the pigeon, since we addopted it. 


Anyways it's really cute! Love it so far 5/5๐Ÿ’–

Hello ayoomi! 

Apologies for my inactivity and delayed response.

Thank you so much for the kind message and the suggestions for homeless pigeon! I would definitely love to add more interactions to homeless pigeon and I hope to bring a more polished experience (just got to find the time haha)!

Till then take care of these homeless pigeons for me!

I love this pigeon but I really want to know how to delete them since I can't really do my work like this?

Hahaha sorry to hear that they're distracting you :) 

I should include a distraction free mode.

it says access denied to the folder plz help i need this

i need this but i cant get it downloaded 

i showed this to my best friend (he's a big dummy for birds) and he absolutely loves her and its the best because he keeps talking about how she runs around and demands affection and he gushes over her all the time so ive ruined his life by giving him a bird to play with and distract himself 

I cant get it to work...

ohh do you get a black screen?

(+1)

The pigeon is so cutee, thank you so much for creating this software. ๐Ÿ’•

I have seen one with a goose a while ago but I didn't like it, I love this one, he looks so cute when he walks around!!

Thank you! Thank you! ๐Ÿ’•

(+1)

Thanks, I really like pigeons a lot, now I have 2 mother fucking coo coo birds in my dekstop

I know you've probably been busy, yet I wanted to tell you that I love this cute pigeon pet! It just runs around my screen exploring <3 I hope that there will be updates soon! 

I wish they added a dodo

thank you for this. i love him.

Oh my god, this is absolutely adorable! My pigeon is sitting on the right upper corner and watchting my doing. Awesome! Thank you.

(+1)

๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ™Œ Thank you for the kind message . I'm sure the fella is also super happy that it has been adopted by you!

I absolutely love my cute new desktop companion! It's so adorable to see it run around on the screen while I'm working and never fails to bring a smile to my face! 

Although how do I get it to do the other actions that I see in the background of this web page if possible? I would love to see it make other actions however its still cute to have run around my screen and taking naps. 

Again thank you for making such a adorable desktop companion!

Thank you for the lovely message!

Unfortunately, I haven't gotten around to implementing other remainder sprites. I hope too soon in the future!

In the meantime thank you for adopting the little fella.

Is there any way to change the pigeon or am I missing something?

Hey! unfortunately this version only has the pigeon.

Which bird were you interested in seeing?

Hello! One of my friends downloaded this and I found the pigeon and its interactions very cute.

I was wondering if you're planning on creating a Mac version of this?

i'm also on mac and I really want it! its so cute but i can't use it on mac which is such a pity

Great idea! I saw your previous post and definitely like both turkeys. 

(+2)

what about a cockatiel? they are quite fun to play with, i have 2 cockatiels IRL so i would love one on a PC

(+3)

Cockatiels! I'll add that to the trello list.

Also I had these other members. My favourite is the blue-footed booby

(-2)

wait so theres more than just a pigeon? thats cool! but is there a way to make the pigeon into one of these?

how do i  use this instead of pigeon, if there is a way for my to use the owl.

(+1)

yes I too would like to see a booby on my desktop

I would love a feature someday that lets every single one of these birds just roam around. Chaotic, but so cute c:

(+2)

Just a suggestion, could you make a little guinea pig? The pigeon could be friends with it. Btw I love the adorable little pigeon.

(+3)

A guinea pig ooh. I shall put that onto my trello list. Thank you for the suggestion and the kind comment :)

(+1)

I love this so much!! A tiny pigeon that keeps you company when you work and/or browse the internet! It truly warms my heart, thank you for making such an adorable game! Have you ever thought of adding treats to the game? Maybe the player could scatter treats around the desktop for the pigeon to find or just feed treats directly. Would love more ways to interact and bond with my new pigeon friend! โ™ฅ

Hey Marr!

Thank you so much for leaving such a lovely comment! I'm so glad that it gave you so much joy :> 

And Yess, I do have plans to implement a feeding feature along with more ways to interact with your companion. 

I was also thinking of implementing a online aspect where you can send mails to your friends which would have the pigeon fly over to your friends screen to drop mail off. Would this feature be something of interest to you?

I hope to bring you more features in the future! If you want to be updated I'll be most active through twitter. https://twitter.com/itsDaumPark

omg, I love him! Thank you so much for making this ha

(+1)

Thank you for adopting the little fella.  I hope to bring a wide variety of animals and more interactions.

Is there any features you'd want to see in the game?

Ohh, that'd be awesome! 
Perhaps some kind of timer/meter, that gets filled from behind the scenes as long as you have the animal out. The meter unlocks little hats for them- idk if that means you'd have to do the hat for each frame tho (probably right?)
Annnnnd, if there is way to send him to his nest at will

(+3)

Oh, cosmetics have been on my mind for a while. Definitely a feature i'll add. 



Thank you for the suggestions :) I'll add them to the backlog!

honestly this is 50x better than I could have imagined!!! Perfect! 

i was able to open multiple at once, so that's the best feature so far. do you think later they will be able to interact with each other and you'll be able to feed them crumbs or peas later on? maybe... name tags even?

Thank you for the feedback and playing it! 

Yess!  Some of those features are in the backlog and currently being worked on. Soon you'll be able to feed it and do more interactions with it. 


I need more interactions and maybe make it play alone in his corner, like a nintendogs kinda thing maybe idk, btw awsome xD LOVE IT

I really NEED more of it

Hey MrTek, thanks for trying out the game and leaving feedback :>. More features are in the works and I'll be updating regularly.
