Owlboy is the skyward hero Nintendo fans deserve

At first it was exciting to see so many games come to the Switch eShop every week. Now it's getting ridiculous. Just this month, Celeste, Dandara, Space Dave, Old Man's Journey, Pac-Man CE 2 Plus, and Owlboy have all been competing for my t...

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...

The Owlboy demo is both available and good

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...
