Gibbon: Beyond the Trees is a hand-drawn adventure following a lost gibbon as they embark on a dangerous journey into unknown lands. Race to freedom in liberation mode, or play through an hour-long narrative that captures the real struggle of living creatures around the world. Master the gibbon’s art of brachiation (swinging from branch to branch) at high speed, building momentum, pulling off spectacular somersaults, and launching yourself higher and further into the air with the help of your fellow Gibbons, feeling the thrill and exhilaration of life in an untamed jungle.


  • Master acrobatic moves, including launching from another gibbon’s hands in mid air
  •  Experience free-flowing dynamic movement based on brachiation, the way real gibbons swing through the trees 
  • A touching adventure of a family of gibbons trying to survive amid an encroaching human threat. 
  • Play through an hourlong adventure in story mode, or race to freedom through a procedurally generated jungle in liberation mode.
  • Stunning 2D hand painted visuals that breathe life into a rapidly vanishing world. 
  • Explore varied environments, from the wild jungles of Southeast Asia to the hectic human world beyond. 
  • Gibbon: Beyond the Trees deals with challenging but acute environmental topics, including deforestation, poaching and climate change.

For now it is Win only on itch but it will soon be available for Mac as well.

Simplesmente lindo e significativo! 

Are any of the updates to the game that are available on Steam (encyclopedia pages, daily runs) ever coming to the itch.io release??

Has anyone tried to Wine this game? I only have Linux, but want to try this game.

Gorgeous game, and you really nailed the swinging physics - it feels so satisfying the way your character moves.




Awesome game and really beautifull graphic. Bravo😁

I will think about getting this game, when I have the funds, looks amazing!

Thank you for speaking up for animals! Thank you for addressing the issues of climate change, deforestation, poachers, and habitat losses.

You should advertise more, this game deserves more attention.

Nice application 👍🏻

Stumbled upon this. This is a work of art!

I'm really impressed by this. You should market it more!

Here is a gameplay video I made for the showcase I did of this game with IGC! 

It is a beautiful and emotionally complex game that has everything going for it. Thank you so much for allowing people to experience and reflect on the nature of animal ecology and its fragility. The game is also incredibly fun, and as you can see in the video I thoroughly enjoyed it. Best wishes with the game and I hope it draws tons of support for the cause!
