About the game

In Thunderbird Strike, a side-scrolling game, players can control a thunderbird—a figure in several Indigenous cultures—that destroys as much of the oil industry’s machinery and pipelines as it possibly can while activating as many animals and people as possible with searing lightning strikes.
Players use lightning to destroy vehicles, buildings, and pipelines, or they can use it to restore wolf, caribou, buffalo, and people. At the end of the game, players battle against a pipeline snake representing Line 5 underneath the Mackinac Bridge in the Great Lakes. Thunderbird Strike is a high score game—players always win and can replay for higher scores.
