Alphonse Geddy Otus

The Game

Explore a vibrantly crafted pixel world in this flying adventure platformer.

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, and burdens no-one should have to bear.

Pixel art!


  • 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 10 years in the making.
