Owlboy For Mac And Linux!

Together with FNA creator Ethan Lee, we've produced a version of Owlboy that runs on Mac and Linux. It should be functionally identical to the Windows version, and once you have bought the game, it'll be available on all platforms.



We'll be continuing to update and optimize this port as best we can going forward, like we've been doing with the Windows version.

To mark this occasion, Owlboy is now available on Steam at a 33% discount until the end of the weekend.

CORRECTION: The Steam sale has ended (sorry for the incorrect timeline!), but it's still available at the Humble Store and on Good Old Games at the discounted price. At Humble Store you'll get a DRM-free version and a Steam key.

Boguin Cannon Race Update! - v1.1.6233.23511



Leaderboards
The Boguin cannon mini-game now has a new objective! For anyone who wants more of a challenge when they've collected all the rings, you can now compete with other players to get the best times. Compete with either your friends or try to get a spot on the global leaderboard!



The leaderboards can be found in the Boguin Cannon area.

There are 3 boards.
  • Global Best - displays very top times, located on the left side of the cannon.
  • Your Rank - displays your rank on the leaderboard, located on the right of side the cannon.
  • Friends Rank - shows your rank compared to your Steam friends, located on the wall above the cannon.

Quick Retry
You can quickly retry your run by double tapping Q or E (RB or LB on controller). You can also skip the launch sequence of the cannon by tapping any button. This should get you up and soaring in no time!



Other changes:
  • Improved controls slightly in the final dungeon.
  • Fixed a speed-runner route that was accidentally broken in the previous version.
  • Support for more encodings and line endings for save files.
  • Fixed various smaller issues.

This release also changes around some of Owlboy's internals in preparation for the impending Mac and Linux releases. Hopefully those changes won't affect gameplay.

If you're experiencing problems with this update, the previous version of Owlboy is available in the previous_release version on Steam. To access it, right click Owlboy, go to Properties -> Betas, and select previous_release from the drop-down menu, and wait for Steam to update.

UPDATE: Because of a bug that was reported in version v1.1.6232.30265, we have hotfixed it with version 1.1.6233.23511. The features are all the same.

Owlboy is a 'hi-bit' adventure game, where you can fly and explore a brand new world in the clouds! Pick up your 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.



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, well kept secrets, and burdens no one should have to bear.



  • A love letter to pixel art for a new audience, Owlboy is a story-driven action adventure, 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 9 years in the making.
