From what I can tell, I never played a winged character on a finished game.



Escape from underworld, a game created for a competition, had a fallen angel but the game was way too much unpolished to be enjoyable to me, thought intro was really great.

Owl boy is into serious flight. At first there's a catchy 8-bit tune, then monkeys are purples and I like very much the futuristic looking like antics aspect of the gameplay.





While unfinished the game has already won an award (Norwegian game award), due released is said to be for the end of the quarter, at least for beta testing. I don't know how much it will cost but I guess it will be affordable.

The game seems very classic on many ways but he seems huge too, and that's why I'm waiting for it's release.

That looks awesome :) I only see a link for the fallen angel game thing, but not for Owl boy. Is/will it be freeware?

To me as it is developped for both xbox and pc, it will not be freeware. Much more informations can be found on the designers site at DPadWebsite

It looks fine indeed, I forgot to mention the heroe apparently "can carry things and people" thingy which is a trend I'm not fond of (games with physics you know).

Fallen Angel is the studio that brang us A game with a Kitty, one of my "overall" favorite games.

Now, the flying intro of Escape the underworld was absolutely great, may be that was that that let me think that Owl boy could be a great game.

I'm still waiting for my boxed copy to arrive... (Was really hoping IndieBox would've e-mailed me the download code so I wouldn't have to wait, but that appears not to be the case...)

Just saw the creator of Undertale tweet about it saying he liked it. So I guess that's an assurance of quality.

I've played through about half of it and it's very enjoyable. The aesthetics are amazing and the controls are really good once you get used to them. I recommend it.
