I'll tell you what an Owl Boy is, son. In this case, it's a 2D platform game coming to to PC and Xbox 360. It also looks deliciously retro and its main character is ... well ... an Owl ... Boy.

Owl Boy is a 2D platforming adventure for the Xbox 360 and Windows PCs. Go with Otus on a free flying quest into the clouds and discover the secrets of the floating islands while preserving the Owls' integrity...

The game is being developed by D-Pad Studio and is described as a "free-roaming flying game with dungeons." It is to be entered into the IGF, where hopefully we'll see much more of a game that's already making the retroheads and indie crowd excited. 

Looks charming, and I really couldn't be happier that so many sidescrolling platforming and action titles seem to be coming out lately. With Braid and Castle Crashers already launched, The Dishwasher, Prinny and VanillaWare's new Wii title all on the horizon, and now this little beauty, fans of a once-dead genre have a lot to be happy about.
