Ever dreamed of flying? 

Fly Like a Bird 3  allows you to do all the things a real bird would do.

These include
- flying (of course),
- finding food,
- building a nest,
- laying eggs and
- raising chicks

(also pooing on people)

The game comes with a variety of species and environments to choose from
and is multiplayer-only.

I truly love this game so much and I'm glad it's being made available like this. So Multiplayer does work, yes? It's just that nobody plays it anymore?

Kinda. Thing is, when I do the network tests it usually works like a charm. Whenever someone else tries, it's..... not reliably stable.

I came here with my friend to play this good relaxing game again. Sadly, but we couldn't find each other on the same map. Many years ago in this game there were a large number of players, there were good times. I hope that this game will not be forgotten.

Like, no message that either joined?

Hi there. If multiplayer is working, the absence of anybody on maps means no one plays the game? It's sad...

Yeh, it's incredibly sad. The game just sits there waiting and nobody comes.

hello! the new pigeon model is super amazing! i remember playing this game years ago, and wishing the models would be updated.  i was so happy and excited when i saw the pigeon was updated. do you think you'll update the other birds? if so, how soon, and which ones? thank you so much for all the work you put into this game. I'm happy i can still play it. please respond! thank you!!

When the game stops breaking left and right, my workload eases a little and altogether there's some more time for stuff :)
Not soon, that pigeon model will be amongst the replaced objects cause it was made by a person who left our team pretty
dramatically. So yeh..

I think you need to try and advertise this game somewhere, I don't think people know it exists.

There's a version of FLAB on Gameflare, but it doesn't support multiplayer.

https://www.gameflare.com/online-game/fly-like-a-bird-3/

If you look there are so many people demanding multiplayer, and I don't think they know where to look!

I think I did post there somewhen, announcing where to find the multiplayer version
Either people didn't believe it or didn't read. If they didn't read, how's one supposed to get information into their brains? :'D

hello im having issues this was my long time fave game but i keep refreshing every 20 minutes is there way make it work better? im using google chrome

Why're you refreshing? 

(1 edit)

dthis is what happens when i finally got it to work how do i get it to work on multiplayer?

Just click play

I sure do miss the mobile version, luckily I bought a laptop today heh... Anywho it just keeps on loading for me and I'm using chrome.

Often it helps to force-refresh the site using CTRL + R. If it doesn't work on first try, usually second or third does the trick. Give it some time between and see if that helps. Good luck!

I cant play.

Because "Your browser not support WEBgl"

I already played this game on my browser, why I cant play now?

What browser do you use?
We successfully tested Opera, Safari, Chrome, Firefox and Internet Explorer.

Im using Yandex

Try one of the others then. 

Я хочу задать вопрос. Как играть в многопользовательском режиме? Я вижу только кнопку воспроизведения, а затем есть только один режим. Страница перезагрузилась, но не помогла

"I want to ask a question. How to play multiplayer mode? I see only the play button, and then there is only one mode. Page reloaded but did not help."

Play is multiplayer mode.

Also seagulls should be edited, so they can have more normal egg colour, the egg colour is green with black dots, that's the normal eggs. Also make the audio for seagulls or other birds more familiar like the ones in real life.

Takes resources we don't have. Neither for the sound files nor the textures for the egg. Also takes time and money to acquire these.

Hi when does this game get available to play online? I just get the offline version

The game already has multiplayer mode. If you still see a singleplayer mode button, you'll need to refresh the page.

Hey, another curious question: Will there be any new mechanics added to the game or will they most likely stay the same?

Probably not adding much new stuff. Thing is, when *anything* at all is added, the game often does some really unreasonable things or break in places you wouldn't expect it to. Pretty weird. Not all makes sense.
What feature would be on your mind? 

I was thinking it could be really cool if birds of prey are added to the game (like the eagle & owl) they could hunt other birds such as the songbirds of the game as an option.


 Just an idea though :)

Like, diving at them? :)

Yeah!

I never thought that someone would revive this game. Its amazing to see how a few talented people can keep nostalgia alive. =)

Why, thank you! :) All it needs is some blood though. Few players at the same time right now.

Hello! I have a curious question about the bird models. Will the other birds get a new look or will they remain the same? I do love the pigeon model the most. 

Especially the pigeon model is gonna be replaced because the person who made it left with a pretty dramatic exit.
I've made sure tho that all models get replaced by better-looking ones. All but starling, but there's a lot new birds too.

Thinking of replacing the buildings in cityscape for a better general look but that's lower priority :)

Oh my goodness, I'm so excited! Cant wait to see what new birds are coming. 

May take just another while cause the new models can't fold their wings properly x.x 
Let's hope the new species' models do a better job at that

Hi, first I'd like to say I am so happy and grateful that you, at Raven Woods Development, have put in so much effort into bringing FLAB3 back to life again. I have been playing from years ago and was sad to see Gamevial go. I have 2 questions if that's not a bother:

1. Is the previously downloadable version going to cease any further updates?
2. Is this new, online version, automatic multiplayer? Though I can't see anyone when I go to a stage, there is no old 'multiplayer, singleplayer' option before I click a landscape.

Thanks in advance!

1. Yeh, it's about the end of the downloadable era, at least for flab3. Reason for that is that it eats quite some time to compile for several platforms. Got to thank Unity for that; if it could deploy to all of them at the same time it'd be harshly different. But since the game often unexpectedly breaks and needs hotfixes, it's easier to maintain a webGL build. 

2. Multiplayer-only, that is. Because singleplayer mode was a) broken as heck and b) basically pointless, since there were no more NPC than are in current Multiplayer. Was thinking of an offline-mode though. 

You suck and this whole site sucks.

I am moving from this site and deleting this account.

You do that. Have a nice day.

other maps on android there are problems with ground users are unable to see it but on Cityscape everything is okay.

Pc all maps are okay.

Can you make it available to download and stay this time?

So you say it has shader issues on all maps but cityscape? 

It won't be for download anymore. First of all, instead of 1 release, we'd have 4. That's 4 times the compile time, 4 times the debugging, 4 times the trouble. So no. 

You suck and this whole site sucks.

I was playing with friends and it worked even on android but the people I was playing with did not bothered when on android there is not ground showing but you can still land and the twigs underground they still played and we all moved to Cityscape and was fun until removed again!
Has people who still enjoy that game, please..

Are you developing it?

1. Ground disappears? Like, fully? Or just the pavement
2. Removed again? Whut?

I was once a Fly like a bird 3 user/player since a long time, I got to download it from this site after the game was taken down. I downloaded and played multiplayer with users weeks ago then now cannot have it. I want to download it again and play with friends. !! Where is it? Why did you put it to browser? I was telling people about the game and how to get it, I want to download it.. :[

okokok

Can't write my name in the text box with my android D: uff

Yeh, seems the webgl version is a little unreliable on android so far
Let's get it stable first, then see about the mobile part :D

hello! i have a problem with pigeon. why pigeon does make a nest too much up? :) and you do amazing work <3 i always when i was a kid dream about this game will be better. so realistic ^^

Probably because the model itself is kinda messed up. There are plans to replace them tho :)

For the simple reason of compiling only one platform that works on all.
Android doesn't comply (of course) but that's being worked on. It does work on most browsers tho.

Why would you want to download it anyway?

I was playing with friends and it worked even on android but the people I was playing with did not bothered when on android there is not ground showing but you can still land and the twigs underground they still played and we all moved to cityscape and was fun until removed again!
Has people who still enjoy that game, please..

coool <3 and you will change model of chick and nest? :D

Maybe :P Wouldn't see a reason why though.. especially nests would only look uglier if I changed them (seriously)
Chick maybe.

and what will be with another birds? they will changed too? :DD

Working on it. Got a few new models already; problem is their idle and walk animations are horrible.
So these need to be fixed before anything.

Yeea

:D what's the problem on android? 
May need that information in order to fix it.
