Owlboy launches the release of a native port with a nice discount

Owlboy launches a release for Linux and Mac port with a nice games discount

So one of the #best #platformer #games, just got it’s Linux and Mac port, finally. While this release was a possibility for sure, D-Pad Studio are pleased to announce the native release. So we now have another epic Linux game in the roster.

About the Linux platformer release:

Together with FNA creator Ethan Lee, we’ve produced a version of Owlboy that runs on Mac and Linux. It should be functionally identical to the Windows version, and once you have bought the game, it’ll be available on all platforms.

We’ll be continuing to update and optimize this port as best we can going forward, like we’ve been doing with the Windows version.

I have to admit, I like the fact that D-Pad are issuing a sale for the ports release. While also making it clear that Owlboy will continue to receive updates “going forward”.

So players explore a vibrantly crafted pixel world in this flying adventure platformer.
While being 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.

Hence what follows, a journey through monster infested ruins. With the games unexpected encounters and burdens no-one should have to bear, so players will be challenged.

Owlboy Features:

  • 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.
  • An adventure 9 years in the making.

So Owlboy is one of those epic games that should be played. Now available with a 33% discount until January 29th on Steam and Humble Store.

While we close out 2016. Therefore one game this year we are eagerly awaiting to see Linux release #available. Owlboy has been in #development for close to 10 years. Hence this gorgeous pixel-art #adventure title wows both critics and players when it released last month on Steam.

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.

  • 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.
  • An adventure 9 years in the making.

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.

Linux release:

A recent post by the developer on the Steam Discussion certainly shows some positive interest.

“It is a possibility for sure 😀 We’re looking into porting for both Mac and Linux!”

So as it stands, we will likely see a native release for the adventure platformer Owlboy. And further research shows that the game is built using XNA along with D-Pad Studio’s own game engine. Somewhat similar to what Salt and Sanctuary and Stardew Valley are created with.

Owlboy is available on Steam for PC with a 10% discount until November 8th. Stay tuned for that native build.
