Bas de Jonge, Marketing Manager at SOEDESCO, had this to say:
I’m very excited to finally announce our collaboration, it’s something we’ve had in the works for a while now. Today, a year after Owlboy’s release on Steam, we’re happy to finally share this news with the community, and we’re hoping everyone is just as excited as we are to bring this fantastic game to retail.
Owlboy is a story-driven platform adventure game, where players can fly and explore a brand new world in the clouds. Players will need to 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 a story-driven action adventure, 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.
