Owlboy is a great adventure platformer, but it's also an amazing story of perseverance. D-Pad Studio started to work on the project in 2007, and it took them nearly 10 years to release it. When they did though, it earned the respect of othe...

Owlboy released today and you probably want in on that

"Revered. Exalted. Wise. These are the traits of your fellow owls." That's how the launch trailer for Owlboy begins. It's especially cutting because Otus, the titular owlboy, is considered none of these by his peers. He's a dunce, a m...

Impressions: a promising Owlboy demo teases

The Owlboy demo makes a good first impression -- after D-Pad Studio's logo flashes, players are treated to a sweeping, pixelated vista as Otus looks on. Pastoral music plays and, though the demo begins in medias res, the menu screen tells p...

A demo for Owlboy, the much talked-about 2D platformer from Norwegian indies D-Pad Studio, is now available for PC -- a good sign for a game beset my development trouble, despite winning a visual design award at the 2010 Independent Ga...
