"It had been their home for years now. They didn't see it at first. A way out, they called it, the vessel that would carry them to lands unknown where they would find belonging again. But their dusty old stolen zeppelin now sparkled from the inside out because it was all they had. It became all they needed — the Sunbird, and the air it sailed through. Maybe someday they would settle down in the next town. Maybe they would travel the world for the rest of their lives. But they found their home, their family, their meaning, aboard the Sunbird."


"The Sunbird" is a concept album about a group of kids whose town is raided in a hostile occupation by a foreign country. Not content to live as prisoners or die meaninglessly, they escape the ashes of the lives they knew by stealing a zeppelin, the Sunbird. With nowhere to call home, the friends sail the skies, traveling the world in search of a new beginning.

Very fitting for a narrative-driven game.
I also like the story of the kids in the description box.

You might like the Miroslav Philharmonik VST.
I think you'd like it a lot.
