About Owlboy

About this game

Owlboy is a story-driven platform adventure game, where you can fly and explore a brand new world in the clouds! Pick up your friends, and bring them with you as you explore the open skies. Overcome obstacles and greater enemies, in one of the most detailed adventures of this era.

Being mute, Otus struggles to live 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, well-kept secrets, and burdens no one should have to bear.

  • A love letter to pixel art for a new audience, Owlboy is a story-driven action adventure, 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 10 years in the making.

Incredible storytelling! This game's narrative is like a gripping novel I can't put down. The characters are relatable, and the choices I make impact the story. It's a masterpiece that keeps me coming back for more.

Not bad at owl!

I enjoyed this game quite a bit. Especially of note are the pixel art, music, and writing, which are all superb in my opinion. The only thing keeping this from 5 stars for me is the gameplay. Now let me stress that the gameplay is not bad by any means. But to me, it just felt a bit "ordinary." Again, not in a bad way, but as far as platformers go, I didn't feel like I was playing anything revolutionary, just a solid and fun platformer painted with excellent pixel art. If you like solid platformers, especially gorgeous ones, you'll have fun here.

The game is fun, sad, and hilarious in some parts of the story along the way. Some actions are met with comedic responses from the character within, which isn't common in most games that I've played. Overall, fun game
