Owlboy swoops onto Mac and Linux, regurgitates sale

Given that the wait for Owlboy [official site] was almost a decade, you might have missed that it actually came out last November. But it did!

Developer D-Pad Studio's been bending over backward and probably turning its head upside-down to get the gorgeous side-scroller out the door, but it's only (composed of) human(s). Everyone needs…

Wow, Owlboy Is Looking Completely Gorgeous

The guys over at IndieGames noticed that the previously available demo of side-scroller Owlboy has been pulled from their site, due to being "out of date". The reason for this seems to be that the game has been radically overhauled, and is now looking fabulous. (The old demo is still here.) It's been a couple of years since we first reported on this, but it…
