Hello! I have a question. Is there any possible way to play the unmodified original version of FLAB3 that supports multiplayer? I understand why your development team has made changes and such, but I struggle a bit with the removel of arrows on the downwards camera and day-night system you have implemented. It's completely fine if not! I was just curious as you mentioned it being open-source.
Fly Like A Bird 3
A downloadable game for Windows
Ever dreamed of flying?
Fly Like a Bird 3 allows you to do all the things a real bird would do.
- flying (of course)
- finding food
- building a nest
- laying eggs
- raising chicks
- pooing on people
The game comes with a variety of species and environments to choose from,
amongst them pigeon, crow, barn owl and sea gull.

Want to develop your own FLAB-Version?
According to the original creator's wishes, this game is open-source.
We took the freedom to remove some content though in order to limit the cloning.
Requires Unity 4.7 and some work to get running.
Also, please refrain from uploading your build to itch.io, google play store and steam. You might get in trouble if you do (copyright and stuff).

1. Arrows: Well, stuff is where you'd expect it. A bird doesn't know where the food is exactly.
2. Day-Night System: What's wrong with it?
3. Finally, the unmodified version: None that would support multiplayer, sorry. We had to work with a somewhat broken source to begin with. With every fix more stuff went buggy. The result is the current version of the game.
Well, greetings from Russia, I am writing through a translator, I hope it will be clear.
in general, the problem is that I absolutely do not understand how to manage, because I forgot how to do it. at the same time, "instructions" and "credits" in the main menu do not work at all.
also, I remember that there used to be labels indicating, depending on the color, this or that object, but now they are not there, you need to click something to make them appear, or they are irrevocably removed?
I hope you can answer, it was nice to spend time with these beautiful games before, which I would like to do now. :^
Hello! Thank you for many bug fixes. But one thing I can't understand: Why did you make all the maps so dark and depressing? More like a horror
Hey i just found this game after years of not playing it. I am confused as to how to play multiplayer. I join multiplayer and there is noone there. Do i have to put in a specific IP address to play or is there something i am missing? I just want to play with other people. Thank you.
I have noticed that the android apk has deleted, are you fixing some bugs or you have problems and you cant have it on android anymore?
Yeh, since lots changed, lots needs to be re-checked if it still works properly on android.
Thanks for keeping the game alive!
Unfortunately, just like many of the other people here who are coming back to play after however-many years, when trying to register a new account, no verification code was sent to my email... sad times, sad times indeed.
If it isn't too much trouble, is it possible to manually send an email like it seems you've done with the others..?
Might be in the spam folder (some services tend to categorize contabo as spam, idk why that is).
Or might be a little late, that email. Sometimes mailservers are incredibly slow. The account was created
and waits for verification; there was no error message either. It's gotta be there somewhere, unless yahoo.com
deletes certain mails by default.
Did you try a different provider, just for good measure?
Did send the mail manually though, just in case.
I've loved fly like a bird 3 for years now (I started playing in 2010 so pretty much ever since it came out) and am extremely grateful for your dedication (and that of the community) to keeping it alive. If it is alright, I would like to point out a few technical errors I've noticed in the latest update. Firstly, the swan cannot interact with bins nor collect twigs/start a nest. I've only noticed this problem after the August update. Secondly, whenever I build a nest on a sloped surface (i.e. the roof of a building) it retains its flat angle. Lastly, the day-night cycle is out of whack (I'm sure you're sick of hearing this, but it has not yet been fixed so we are going to keep reminding you of it). I'm sure you're working your hardest (and succeeding!) to make this game as enjoyable as possible, and we are certainly looking forward to any future updates but it would be fantastic if you would be as kind as to consider my observations when making them. Thanks as always.
1. So the swan is definitely bugged.. added to the list, thanks for reporting :)!
2. It's not exactly a bug that the nest isn't sloped on sloped surfaces; it would look extremely strange if the egg aligned to the surface as well; though it probably should just refuse to build the nest there. Shall see about it. Thank you!
3. Idk what's wrong with the day-night cycle though; how exactly is it "out of whack"?
Thanks for responding and apologies if my observation about the day-night cycle was poorly worded. What I meant to say was that it doesn't begin in the 'daytime' and transition to night then repeat like it did before. Please just ignore this if that is not a bug. Have a good day!
So it doesn't work altogether o.O? Or just the transition?
The transition works (although it takes quite a while), however the only map which starts at 'daytime' is the cityscape. Again, not sure if this is intentional or not but it seemed odd to me. In any case thanks for your willingness to listen.
I thought this game was gone forever, I remember not being able to get it to run at some point on GameVial's site. Thank you so much for bringing this back, memories are flooding back. Understandable if this isn't possible, but is there any hope of the 1st & 2nd game being re-released?
HOLY CRAP i remember playing an older version of this game awhile ago with my brothers
Welcome back then :)
Let me know if there's any issues.
No issues yet on mobile. Btw I forgot the name of your games and i was searching for your older games for like hours and finally found your itch.io. So happy to see that your games are still available to play. I remember playing some on gamevial.com :) Also gonna download lif and Knight of the dragon
When I press log in everything disappears. I've tried redownloading it multiple times, I think its be because I accidentally erased the server IP but I don't know how to get it back .Sorry if I have bad grammar.
Server IP is: 184.108.40.206
Please see if using this one fixes the issue :)
I tried signing up, but haven't received the email verification code, tried again the next day, still no code, advice?
Valid email address?
If yes, Spam folder?
If not there, tried a different provider?
2. yes, not there
3. can't get back to the screen to put in a different address
So is Inviting people the only way to see and play with players? There's no room for anyone to join and chat with strangers and have fun? if thats how it is? are y'all going to be adding a room where players can meet random players?
Also, are there any new birds?
Everyone can join at any time. There's no restriction (unlike the old flab) for each room.
Yes, there's a new bird
hi, how can i get multiplayer? like there is nobody and there isnt the chat. someone help pls i dont wanna play alone
Hello, im sorry for my ignorance, im still learning english. I read the replies, but there's some things that i cant understand. I wanted to know if the multiplayer mode is working, because when i enter a room, there's no chat, or just no one at all.
Also, there's no recycle bins, is that normal?
Yeh, multiplayer works. I don't know why there's no bins; last time I checked, they were there and working.
I love the game, but I wish there could be more features. Like you could add unlockable birds by doing tasks, events, some form of currency, and/or updated graphics. I also don't see many pedestrians that you can poo on.
- This was actually debated a while ago - people didn't really like the idea though.
- Would require more gameplay first, in order to have a broad variety of quests.
- Nah, too mainstream :)
- Yeh, I agree, but for the lack of a proper modeller we need to buy assets in order to replace old stuff.
What's available is mostly low-poly, which would seriously conflict with the graphic style of the game.
Thanks for the suggestions though :D
Hey the day and night cycle seems to be broken sometimes it puts you on pitchblack map and doesnt change. And on multiplayer its about to change but keeps looping between early sunrise and just after sun is up. Will this problem be fixed or is it meant to not have day night cycle like the one in past?
Yeh, seems like the system broke (and the bug somehow evaded our debug squad) ..
Working on a replacement
There is an issue when trying to log into my account. I press the login button, put in the code that gets sent to my email, and then press submit. However, I just get sent another code every time I submit the previous one. Is there any way to fix this?
You may need to enter the exact code, including c-
No, this is there to stay. Issues shall be fixed when reported and properly analyzed, but the system will stay :)
Dear Kouga, Just have brain and writing to you to make flab3 popular. when will the update coming? I don't like coming flab 3 empty rooms and you are so proud of flab 3 inactivity. if you like flab 3 inactivity then stop wasting your money. Look at gameflare and other site. they aren't aware of flab 3 version and they were expecting flab 3 site multiplayer to work. Count them, they over 100+ people complaining. and you turn on slow mode in your Discord channel. you did that because they dont want them to swear for you before you want to reply me. talk sensible or sell your giant pawpaw Thank you
Update is coming when update is stable. Unless you prefer a version with bugs that happen at the worst possible time. Testing takes ages especially with people having an actual life aside from Flab3. Also, unpaid people. Keep that in mind, might be important later.
Not proud of the lack of players in flab3, idk where you take that assumption from. The server's running on our (that is, a couple of people) money and my maintenance efforts, I'm unhappy with it being so underused. Can't be helped until the game's a little more stable. No use advertising a game that's unstable. Oh, did I mention the people working on this ain't paid for it? Think I did.
About Gameflare: It's their responsibility getting multiplayer to run on webgl. They asked for the source, they got the source, they went for WebGL which is incompatible with the included networking plugin. People can always go ahead and download our version instead if they want a working multiplayer mode.
Slow mode is there because *certain* users thought spamming was fun as hell. People can still post, in case you didn't notice.
Also, don't demand sensible answers when your whole text is one big rant, mr "I don't have a username".
you should still advertise the game even if its not done, would get more people aware that it actually exists. Mrs "i don't have a username"
Keep your unqualified comments to yourself. You have no idea what's going on and do you think you have the right to complain about a FREE game? First gather your thoughts and get the correct information before you start writing something here next time. thank you
Please i didn't call your name. be good
and am not the only one complain about free game. if it's premium game, i will pay straight. So try and zip your mouth
Advertisement costs money and even if it didn't, it'd cost time and effort. Not worth the trouble until the game's ready, mr "All I can do is throw stuff back at people"
eggs broken ? bug ?
I've been playing this game for years and I'm a fan of the game please keep updating
(please prioritize bird models)
''I LOVE YOU RAVEN-VOOD
Gosh I've played this game since FLAB2 and after a long long break after growing up from my browser gaming days I finally came back to see if FLAB3 was still live and kicking. Spoiler: It wasn't :(
But then I continued searching and came across the wiki, the discord and then finally the itch page and I am BLOWN AWAY that this game is still getting traction and updates and has a dedicated community in it.
This was my childhood, thank you for keeping it going, the nostalgia and pure joy this game brought, from the frustrated deaths, making nests and eventually getting chicks, to cheaters and trying to go against them. Man you're the real MVPs
It's so good to see this game is looking good. The pigeon model looks gorgeous, the new birds?? omg the parrots.... the lil birdies... i love them... so much
Thanks ya'll for keeping it kicking, I'll be coming back to play with some friends too *w*
Thanks for the kind words :)
We're doing our best. Keep in mind there's gonna be an update soon,
changing some stuff. What doesn't work now might be just fine next version.
Hey, there seems to be a bug in multiplayer on PC where the egg will break whether or not you're sitting on it. Is this a known bug and is there any workaround for it?
Actually, it seems to be a problem just with the smaller birds, and it's in both multiplayer and singleplayer. I imagine the "hitboxes" for the egg warming are just too small?
Already fixed in the coming update (which is being re-tested due to security measures having been added and stuff tends to break with big changes) - but you're right, it was about the "hitboxes".
hello are you going to add other birds?😊 and i love this game 😍
Planning to :) Depends on what assets we get our hands on though.
For a lack of modeller, we're buying stuff so we need to see what we can get
in order to add new species.
do it work in 2 gb ram pc ?
Should work, yes. But make sure your graphics card's drivers are up to date.
Also, if the same card is from 20 years ago, this might cause issues. Other than that,
it should work. :)
@The little dramaqueen posting idle threats and insults just because you don't get what you want (whatever that is) :
Bite me. Update's going to come and you're not going to stop it.
If anything, now more than ever.
sad to see so few players on now since gamevial shut down, but i'm very grateful you guys got this so we can still download it and play. the updated pigeon model looks fantastic btw.
i happy this game still alive
this some nostalgic shit
hi, will you back fly like a bird3 and lif on play market soon?
Hi.I found someone who can make other people's games crash.This can seriously affect the gaming experience for others.He have a lot of names such as blackwolfking and kingslayer...He kept crashing our game until he quit but I don't know how he did it.Can you see what's going on?Thanks a lot!: D
I shall keep watch :) Thanks for informing me!
gamerz(Maybe it's his real name) and 0imlost0,they secretly speak ill of you.They said you are retarded and think you are breaking the game...I don't think flab has changed.It's just that these people influence the game(Their quality is really low).
how to download updates?i love this game 😁
how play together pc and android?how ?
theres no one there in multiplayer?😁
Hello, im big fan of flab but I dont see players in the new update. Can you make the older version downloadable again?
That's because there's few players right now as it seems.
This problem won't be fixed by providing the old version - the more get the update the better.
If there's no reason to get the update, why would they? :o
For the MacOS users:
- Right now there won't be a specific mac version.
- There might be android emulators for mac.
- You might get lucky and be able to play the game this way.
I was sitting on an egg, but it still broke. fix it pleaze
why is there no download for macOS? :(
Because security on macOS is a nightmare. Until I find a solution to that, the mac release will be .. delayed.
I made this account just to specifically tell you how I feel about your development on fly like a bird 3.
Ever since you started changing everything on this game, you have only made it worse. Terrible model changes, your graphics are way much more terrible then a camera recording a ghost video. Your models for lif are unbearably ugly and disgusting. The hell did you do to the animations? They are terrible and that pigeon flying animation is truly awful, you can't even make it loop right. I don't care if you get offended. Because Kouga you're a sentimental baby that takes everything as an insult. Your development with gamevial's game are a waste, you are incapable of doing this. You need to stop, hire someome or just quit. Because if you think you're doing a good job, you're not.
Thank you for your feedback.
I will have to let you know that lif wasn't changed at all.
Same goes for Fly Like A Bird 3, most models and animations are fully untouched and
are just about the same as the old games.
As for your personal-grade insult; What's your problem? Got your ass handed to you last night?
Oh I don't know what my problem could be. Maybe it's because what you added in this update made the game worse. Nobody will play that shit. And the sounds to "scare" the hackers make me laugh lmfaooo
You know volume buttons exist right? Plus there are rarely any hackers in the game. The model pics from lif you shared are terrible. Oh w olfquest is worse than your games? Dude, you're roasting yourself by saying that.
dude if u don't like it, shut up and dont play it
ripping off about the game just cos u think its not good enough just makes u look pathetic to everyone else who sees these comments, plus its not gonna make the game any better
You seem to think the sounds are the only thing happening ~ Well, who am I to destroy that illusion.
About the pics; That's your personal opinion. Who am I to deny you that.
Know mine? You sir, have the bad habit of thinking your view is absolute. Others might think differently. Your choice of words tells me you think it *is* just as you say; which isn't neccessarily the case.
If you're that hellbent on being right in real-life too, I wish you have very tolerant friends. Though I tend to think there may be very few; one so frustrated might take it out on others too.
