    Oh boy, Owlboy!

    It's a 2d platformer-adventure that's been in development for almost 10 years! Some will say it's a "pixel-art love letter", or a "old-style" platformer. I would say it comes from there, but it's independent by himself. What is more, in my opinion it's not even "pixel-art" despite it follows and represents all these boring pixel art cluster ideas examples you will find in any tutorial at any renown pixel art community. Back in the day, as a player of NES and SNES, nobody talked about pixel-art, but about the art itself.

    Anyways, the visuals are great (a bit too great at times), the animations are awesome, the general atmosphere is very cool, the level design is good, and the music is fantastic so far. I know, it just looks too good (and that's too risky at times). It's not only they've done a great job, but also the nostalgia factor gets triggered everywhere, but it's not actualy a game for the nostalgic and its lush visuals are much more than simple retro styled platformer. The plot looks very good and even the dialogues. I've played like 3 hours, but if I make this thread is for hearing from you in case you've been waiting for the game, or you have a point of view to share about the game in general.
