Unsurprisingly a game about a boy dressed like an owl, Owlboy is nearing release. It’s an indie game that’s been in the works for nearly a decade, part of that first wave of awesome-looking titles that developed oh-so-slowly since 2007. Now it’s nearly ready for you to go flying, picking up friends to defend yourself and exploring a ‘high-bit’ low-fi world.
Could it fly to the peak and make our best indie games list.
As you can see in the trailer above it’s exceptionally pretty, hence managing to maintain a small but dedicated fanbase over the course of ten years without so much as a marketing budget. Creators D-Pad Studio announced the release date as part of their attendance at PAX on Twitter this week.
