    Developer D-Pad Studio has put out a trailer for their indie game, Owlboy, a 2D adventure-based platforming game that's been in development for the past 10 years. Owlboy is set to be released on Steam, and the release date will be revealed at PAX West this weekend.

    This better be on Wii U. Looks like a nice metroidvania with a lot of exploration and free flying also. :)

    Sick, PC indie scene killing it as usual. Even the younger audience recognizes the superiority of the SNES in some ways. :P

    Absolutely amazing pixel art, rivaling golden age SNK levels.
    Other indies, step it up.

    Sheepy Me likes the looks! The pixels remind Sheepy Me of classic games.

    While I'm tired of indie games having a pixel art style for their games (whether that be 8-bit or 16-bit), this game looks very interesting. I'd probably have some fun with this.
