I think a few more of the 5,000 people who've played it would have noticed some ill effects by now :)

Not really sure what you're seeing on your end, but I definitely didn't make an entire game just to give people viruses lol 


This was really cool, loved the 2.5D style and the mystery behind what caused this post-apocalyptic world. The way the "soul crushing" effect was used is dope.


A very well created game with a great story and play through I loved every second of playing this game.

I played through the game and actually recorded it for my channel. I just want to say that this was a phenomenal little experience. It's actually a lot more stressful than it initially let's on. The sound design was so disturbing to me. It's a short, but sweet game with interesting puzzle-esque story telling. It shouldn't take you more than fifteen to twenty minutes to discover everything there is to offer. All in all, I loved it, thank you!

Hello, I have downloaded this game and when I see the menu I feel that I have downloaded the perfect game, the thing is that when I go to options, I adjust the graphics and put them on as much as possible to see how it looked, when I put it on, it stuck. the screen and then went black and I get an error, I have reinstalled it and I still get that error, is there a way to erase the data from the game? just in case I wrote this in the translator, I hope you can read it clearly

I still have doubts why he has a friend's crow

Answer me please, I would really appreciate it


This game was super cool! I am also interested in trying your other game so I may play that one soon also! 


this is a cool game i played it a while back.


WOW! Amazing game and incredible art!!!! it's a short simple clicking game, but really really stunning. The art in the game just blowed my mind.

Just played the game and had a lot of fun trying it out!

Loved this game very intresting art style and set in a intriging world 

Absolutely loved the style of this game! I made a video on my channel for each of the endings. This is the Venomous one! 

Set in a post-apocalyptic world, My Friend is a Raven is a game about Loneliness, finding Revenge, Peace, Acceptance or Failure to find one of those three.  - You play as the last man alive, everything destroyed by a mysterious plague brought by "The Raven" 

Search the apartment to solve puzzles, locate the Raven to understand why this horrible plague was brought about. 

The Art in this game is awesome, I have always loved games like this, adventures with puzzles, Clues, and a really cool style.

My Friend is a Raven is a short game, there are 4 endings and you should be able to get all 4 within 30 minutes of playing.

This game has made me VERY interested in Two Star Games next project - My Beautiful Paper Smile"

If you would like to see a play through of My Friend is a Raven, here is a link to video i made with all 4 endings - 



I'm sure you've already heard this numerous times, but the style of this game is designed ssoo beautifully! That alone is enough to draw you in. I'm curious of what the other endings add to the story, but unfortunately I only played through twice. Loved every second of it though!

Great work!


This is a very interesting concept. I also liked the style.

I also have to say that this Art Style reminded me about a diffrent game yet I can not put my finger on it. Still, very nice work and I made a video in case you are interested.


hope you enjoy


Gave it a go...


A good game, short but good. Thow I am sorry for not getting the good ending but it was still a good experiance! Here's a video, hope you enjoy it  : )


Wow, I really enjoyed this game! The artstyle and the 2D/3D graphics are really great!

And the fact that it has a whole story, it's not only for a "demo" kind of game, it's what makes it interesting! I'd like to see more of this style of gameplay please :D

Awesome game, very creepy. Great job on the Unique art style!


Love it! Love it! Love it! Thank you so much for making such a great game!


This game was brutally epic. Thankyou.


Thank you for making such a wonderful short game. I already added My Beautiful Paper Smile to my wishlist.


Excellent game and with all endings too.  I also recommend you put this game on indiexpo.net.

First off the art style is absolutely stunning. i voiced the two characters and hope you enjoy how they sound!

Hey there. Gave this game a play a little while ago, and only now have a moment to uplaod it.

I must say right up front that I adore the art style and overall visual presence of the game, along with its verbose writing. It immediately gives the game its own identity and is quite striking. SO kudos on that for sure.

I can't claim to be totally on board with the story, considering just how simple (and a might bit disproportionate) it is, which just doesn't quite stack up to what the writing style suggests. Four endings are definitely appreciated, four very different ways to handle the conflict - I just, personally, end up finding that conflict a little bit weak for carrying the whole thing.

All the same, I loved the experience, and really, really enjoy it on a visual level. I'd love to see more from you guys.


this is is like if edgar allan poe made video games. keep up the great work amigo :D





I ABSOLUTELY adore this experience! Every minute I spent with it was so much fun. I did see all available endings -- this art style is so phenomenal, ugh, I am seriously in love with everything about this game. It's brilliant. Keeping tabs on your future projects for sure.

not too bad :) I like the graphical choices you made and I am a sucker for a point and click adventu


wich requierements I need for run this game in mt PC?

I’m not sure about exact specs, but there’re graphics setting in the game that you should be able to use if your computer is lower end :)


This is visually one of the best games I have come across on itch.io. Everything in this game drips with it's own unique style and I love it. Seeing projects where indie developers really get to flex their creative muscles is why I play indie games, and My Friend is a Raven has that in spades. I only wish the game was longer so I could enjoy it more. Well done developer, I hope to see more from you in the future! If you want to see my play through you can click the link below, but please play this game too, it's well worth your time.

Thanks!  Very well made video you have there, good job on that :)

Hey There! 

Would love to maybe work together, do you have a discord or Facebook, skype or email I can make contact with? 


Always a pleasure to come across new devs who submit great work to jams! The art is fantastic. You built such a haunting and palpable world with so little here, which not many indie devs have learned how to do. Loved how tight the gameplay was and that the puzzles were intuitive. Kudos for completing it in such a short amount of time and good luck with future games!


As soon as I saw My Friend is a Raven, I knew I had to play it. The top-shelf quality for a game jam experience isn’t shocking, but it reminds me of a full release. If it wasn’t for its short length, it’d easily pass for one. Everything here is fantastic; the visuals, sound design, controls and grim story come together to create a melancholy world. Fantastic. 


Another video for you - I was wondering how long it took you to make this game? You've knocked it out of the park visually in terms of graphics, style and presentation overall. I'm super impressed by how much I loved such a short game!

I realize I messed up the thumbnail a little <.< Noticed when I was adding title to the video "My friend is a Ra- wait... Raven.. DAMMIT!" XD

Do you have a twitter I could shout out?

Super good game, would love to see a lot more of this tbh 😁

Thanks!  The game was made for the Epic MegaJam, so I spent about 80 hours developing it over the course of a week.  My Twitter is @TwoStarGames.  Really glad you enjoyed :)

Really enjoyed it - big fan of the visuals :D
While my twitter is tiny I'll do what I can some spread some light towards the city of Raven and Lutum!

Thank you, very grateful for that! 


What an interesting but sad game lol really loved the fact that I could betray the one thing I had as a friend in this world. Really great job! 


I love the fact that this game as multiple endings! Replay value immediately goes up especially when it is an interesting game! Loved the art style! Very well done!

(1 edit) (+1)

I loved this game! The game is super short (as expected for any jam game), but the addition of 3 separate endings was a lovely idea to add the perfect amount of replayability for a jam game such as this.

I found all 3 endings (video below) and I've got to say they weren't challenging to find, but were still satisfying when you did find them!

Most of all the art style, it's so beautiful, it's honestly hard to believe that this is a jam game found on itch.io when looking at it. It's professional and super well animated, made the game an absolute pleasure to play! Keep up the great work!

Here's my video for anyone interested (second game): 

The game is absolutely beautiful, but I have questions.

So, the plague doctor mask reads Victorian, but the apartment has modern appliances. Also, the clock ending features figures passing by during the time lapse segment, despite the other humans supposedly being dead. Was the whole thing a delusion brought on by guilt or mental illness? If not, did the raven undo the curse because I reflected on mistreating it?

Thanks!  Yeah, I'm not really sure when this game takes place XD  I Sketch a lot, and had a plague doctor looking character (which became Lutum) and decided to use him in the game.  Since the character wasn't really made for the game, there might be some historical inaccuracies... As for the people passing back and forth in the clock ending, that's just meant to represent the time passing, as Lutum walks around his apparent, and eventually dies from the plague.  Thanks the comment and video :)

Oh, cool! Thanks for the clarification. Again, incredibly beautiful game. I'd love to see more in this style.

Awesome game, great job!
