Flewn immerses you in the surreal journey of an old whale walking on stilts through a desert in search of a lost ocean.

Experience this unique story by scrolling through beautifully illustrated scenes complemented by original music, animation and rhyming couplets.

Flewn is great for children and can be enjoyed like a storybook (the experience takes about 20-25 minutes). In addition to the story, you can help Frog fly by eating bugs and experience the journey of Flewn through her perspective.

At its heart, Flewn is an artfully crafted story. Gameplay is additional to the story and the game mechanics are basic and will generally be enjoyed by young children.

Additional Features:
• No in-app purchases
• Appropriate for all ages
• Not designed to be ‘addictive’

Coming updates:
• Add a restart button in the fly mode.

My new favourite story


I downloaded this for free not knowing what it was. I have since recommended it to my closest friends and believe that I t is worth more than all the other apps on the market. The beauty of the story, the way the music flows as my finger scrolls, the orientation, the characters, the imagination that it unlocks... I am lost for words when describing how much this moved me and the students I teach. It isn't often I see 9 year olds cry and be so moved during story time. This is an experience that I can't wait to share with my own children (one day when I have them). So, so beautiful. Thank you and well done to the developers and all involved in bringing this magical app to us. Eagerly awaiting your next release!

Artistic Masterpiece


Flewn is more of a work of modern art and story telling than a game, and that's totally OK. I absolutely loved the presentation, the story, and especially the whale. I almost tear up a little bit when (spoiler alert) the whale falls off his stilts. Sometimes I open the app just to watch the whale walking on stilts.

This is a great example of using mobile devices as a medium for art, and I'm more than happy to support this type of work.

The gameplay is simple, and the story is short. I can imagine kids would love this too.

The creation of a unique world


The story holds not only my children's attention but also mine. The illustrations, music, use of the screen space, and characters are unlike any other story or app UI. Admittedly, we haven't tried the 'game' mode since we enjoy the experience of the story so much. Would love to see the story developed further or even turned into a film. Magical.
