What follows is a journey through monster infested ruins, with unexpected encounters, and burdens no one should have to bear.
- A love letter to pixel art for a new audience, Owlboy is an open-world exploration 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.
- Large dungeons with big and challenging boss battles.
An adventure 8 years in the making.
Check out the Trailer:
“Following the journey of the young mute owlboy Otis as he struggles with maturity, sky pirates, and the unexpected, Owlboy is a love letter to old-school video games, as seen in the trailer. We get to see a variety of different areas, characters, challenges, and gameplay (including a heavy emphasis on flight, of course), all displayed with some truly breathtaking visuals. Owlboy is set to come out this Fall as mentioned for PC, but a more concrete release date will be announced at PAX West on September 5th, where the game will also be playable as part of the PAX Rising exhibit. It sure looks like a gorgeous indie bombshell indeed, so here’s hoping this eight-year story has a happy conclusion.”
