Oh boy, this currently released material of the game “Owlboy” just left my mouth wide open. Owlboy is an upcoming independent platformer with more than just “incredible” pixelgraphics. Really, it is hard to tell, how awesome the graphics are. The style is absolutely pure pixelstyle, but in a very laborious manner. Gameplay is also very classic in the style of jump’n’adventure, a little bit like Gargoyles Quest, Castlevania or Rainbow Islands. Owlboy will be a pleasurable graphic-adventure trip, but it is in 2d and feels extremely good and cutting edge. Should somebody say, that graphics lost its relevance. (I suggest this posting on 2d-sprites and animations on GameDesignScrapbook).

The publisher of Owlboy D-Pad Studio should think about releasing printed posters to sell, just instead or besides the game. I would definitely count in for such a goodie.
