I’m not sure how the hell I managed to not hear about Owlboy until now; the game looks like my dreams. Developed by D-Pad Studios, it’s a retro-styled action-adventure platformer bursting with gorgeous character designs and even more promising depth.
Now, we can find out if the gameplay itself is equally good as well, as D-Pad has been gracious enough to give us a demo for the as-of-yet-unreleased game. Check out the trailer after the jump, and tell me you don’t want to be all up in that.
The more I see of this, the more I want the entire game. Unfortunately, there’s no release date yet, but I can only hope it’s soon; this is now one of my most anticipated games of the year.
