Owlboy was released on November 1, 2016 by D-Pad Studio who also developed the game. Owlboy is a side scroller type game.
The developer spend 9 years to make this game. Looks like OCD for amount of artwork and character development that went into the game. Old School and brilliant in all the right ways.
Owlboy is a adventure game, where players can fly and explore a brand new world in the clouds! Pick up 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.

No question this game brings back the old super Nintendo and its simpler games of old.
