Enjoy a sport that has been the pass-time of kings, hunters and warriors for 4000 years!

George Plimpton's Video Falconry was brought to our attention by the Judge John Hodgman podcast. Originally made for the Colecovision in 1983, we've gone to great lengths to painstakingly port one of the few existing copies.

In all honesty it seems like an amazing sport...This game does portray it pretty well.

Nice game but...

It is hard to play on a regular keyboard than on the original controller.

Have you seen my falcon anywhere?

Great game. Really impressed by the intro and how you guys managed to weave in truth with fake stuff, really entertaining and well-written.

fantastic

I personally don't get why people are trolling this game so much. I mean sure, the controls are a bit confusing, but the game is well coded, and jeff's pixel art is fantastic. So great job guys
