Just look at this game, it’s plain gorgeous! “Owlboy” is like my Super Nintendo Entertainment System came out of the basement, grabs itself some beer, and then gets right back to work as it was 1995. But it’s better and stronger and more powerful than ever before. And you buy yourself some “Owlboy,” put it into the cartridge slot, and be a happy kid again!
So, what is “Owlboy?” It’s a new indie game for PC by Norwegian D-Pad Studio that’s set in vibrantly crafted pixel world. Being a mute, Otus struggles living up to the expectations of owl-hood. Things spiral from bad to worse with the sudden appearance of sky pirates. What follows is a journey through monster infested ruins, with unexpected encounters, and burdens no one should have to bear.
“Owlboy” is a love letter to pixel art for a new audience and a high-bit platform game with a unique mix of flight and platforming. Carry anything. Recruit Otus’s friends as gunners to fight for you, each with unique abilities and stories. Explore large dungeons with big and challenging boss battles. A release date hasn’t been set yet, but you can visit D-Pad Studio’s website for more information.
