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! Our John declared it "a treat" and we named it our favourite platformer of 2016. Now the owlish boy/boyish owl has landed in the branches of Mac and Linux computrees, treating more twitchers to a show. The game has…

Feature: A real hoot

Owlboy review

Oh gosh, it is a splendid thing when a game like Owlboy [official site] comes around. Big, smart, involved, silly, gorgeous, aurally stunning, and with a compelling story. It’s got flaws, a couple of big ones, but it also has the wit of a Mario & Luigi game, and the professional delivery of a classic 90s big-studio platforming production, despite coming from a five-man indie…

Twit-Twhen? Owlboy Release Date Announced

The elusive Owlboy [official site]! For the past decade, tales of his hooting and platforming have delighted all. Believers insist that he's real, that he loves us and he'll be with us soon. (I can't help but note most of their "evidence" is blurry photographs obscured by clumsy thumbs.) Our Alec even swears blind he's met Owlboy and stroked his feathers. Yeah, while off your…

Feature: Hands on with the beautiful, flight-based platformer

Eight Years Later, Owlboy Has Landed

To borrow a line from Graham, there's a parallel reality where Owlboy [official site] came out before Braid, earned mega-bucks and now Norwegian devs D-Pad are making elaborate and beautiful 3D follow-ups. But now, eight years later, there's a seething, pixellated mass of neo-retro-platformers and Owlboy is no longer the slam dunk it might have been. Whatever its fortunes now might be, it's almost unbelievable…

ELEVATEWAR: Owlboy Dev’s Elevator Brawler Savant

Owlboy is not out yet and doesn't have a release date. That is the bad news. And by that, I mean that it's the bad news - the news by which all upsetting and otherwise unfortunate events are judged. 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noticed that the previously available demo of side-scroller Owlboy has been pulled from their site, due to being "out of date".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…

Owlboy Demo Swoops In

Due to post-Germany exhaustion and racing to get Deus Ex Human Revolution finished before the embargo lifts later today, I've not had a chance to take lovely-lookin' indie platformer/roleplayer Owlboy for a test flight myself yet, but it only seems right to advise you that a demonstration version of this much-anticipated pixel-art slice of steampunkery is now available. 80MB of avian lad await you here.…

Barnstormer: Owlboy

These are difficult times, and difficult times can only be helped by a short, sharp burst of Owlboy. While we won't get to sample this apparently rather beautiful tale of a quasi-avian lad and his platforming adventures until August 20th, when a demo is due to land, this does mark the first decent footage we've seen of the game since early last year. I might…

IGF Factor 2010: Owlboy

RPS are big fans of Owls - they're wise! Athena digs them! That freaky neck thing! We're not so fond of boys - they're made of slugs and snails and similar material. So we have mixed feeling about the approaching lusciously-retro-formed platformer. Let's over-come them, because it looks beautiful as hell in a gotta-a-visual-arts-nomination-in-the-IGF way. You'll find our interview with Adrian Bauer of D-pad studio…
