Owlboy is a ‘hi-bit’ adventure game, where you can fly and explore a brand new world in the clouds! Pick up your friends, and bring them with you as you explore the open skies. Overcome obstacles and greater enemies, in one of the most detailed adventures of this era.
Being a mute, Otus struggles living up to the expectations of owl-hood. Things spiral from bad to worse with the sudden appearance of sky pirates.
What follows is a journey through monster infested ruins, with unexpected encounters, well kept secrets, and burdens no one should have to bear.
- A love letter to pixel art for a new audience, Owlboy is an open-world exploration game with a unique mix of flight and platforming.
- Carry anything. Recruit Otus’s friends as gunners to fight for you, each with unique abilities and stories.
- Large dungeons with big and challenging boss battles.

While the gameplay is refreshing, impressive soundtrack and very detailed pixel art. Hence the Owlboy release is currently available on Windows PC’s. So developer D-Pad Studios has formally confirmed (via a Reddit AMA) that Owlboy will be coming to Linux and Mac. So these coming ports are most certainly in the works.
While we know that Owlboy is developed using the XNA platform. Though the open source clone of XNA (such as Mono game) do exist. The port will likely be here sometime soon. Event though the most recent SteamDB update was over two weeks back.
If you are considering Owlboy,you can pick it up now with a 20% discount during the Steam Winter sale. Which we all know ends on January 4th.
