Owlboy is an indie adventure platformer with hints of the Metroidvania genre thrown into the formula. D-Pad Studio began development in 2007 and took a year shy of a decade to come up with a final product that, considered by most, was truly worth the wait. It first came out on Microsoft Windows in November of 2016 and Linux and macOS on January of 2017 before its introduction to home consoles in 2018.
Inspired by the concept of flight from Super Mario 3's Tanooki Suit, players take control of an – as the title suggests – owl boy that goes by the name of Otus. Even though regarded by his village as someone unbefitting of owl-hood, he sets out on a courageous journey together with his companions to save the villagers from the menace of sky pirates.
Despite the draining development process, D-Pad Studios thankfully saw fruits of their tireless labor. The game was widely acclaimed by video gaming publications and critics, and the first 24 hours of the Nintendo Switch release alone was enough to turn the entire project a profit. Although exact figures haven't been published yet, according to developer CEO J-Remi Madsen, Owlboy has made enough sales to fund the studio's future projects, which serves as a testament to just how great a game it truly is.
And so, for today's 123rd Temptation Thursdays poll, we shall focus on Otus, the main protagonist of the Owlboy series.
