Representing Southeast Asia in YANA’s #PlayApartTogether Initiative

COVID-19 has brought about tectonic shifts in the way the world interacts with one other, implementing work from home arrangements and home-based learning in efforts to control the spread of this highly contagious virus. We soon discovered that while some of us have embraced all-day PJs and more personal time, a home-based economy has also come with a number of social issues.

As the curtains and feathers of Birb’s adventure come to a close, the team behind Joysteak Studios (Hanif, Kang Soon and Sai Hou) came together to answer some of their fan questions and reflect on their own development journey.  <Source: Facebook page > Q: How did the idea of Songbird Symphony come about? Hanif: Back in 2016, one of my university lecturers mentioned that birds would learn each other’s cry.
