Owlboy turned a profit within just one day on Switch

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...
