Destructoid is proud to exclusively unveil the first gameplay video for D-Pad Studios' Owlboy. We spoke about the game a while ago, when it caught our eye for its retro look and unique promise of "free roaming flying with dungeons."
As a fan of anything that uses sprites, is 2D, and scrolls, I wanted more from Owlboy, and more is what we have. This above video demonstrates what Owlboy is all about, and it looks pretty bloody good. The nostalgic visuals and the beautiful music have pretty much won my heart.
Tomorrow, we will be posting an exclusive interview with D-Pad studios on this new game, which is to be entered into the Independent Games Festival and hopes to be published for both the PC and Xbox 360.
