Daily Deal - Owlboy 50% Off

Today, for the first time on any platform, we are putting Owlboy on a 50% Off for Steam's Daily Deal, celebrating the end of summer - the first summer our team has been able to take a proper vacation post-launch!



Summer & Art
And what a summer it's been! While we've been able to relax a little, there's always something going on. The game launched almost 2 years ago, but it still feels like only yesterday.

Fan-art is always a fantastic thing to wake up to. In June, our artist Simon (@snakepixel) prompted a #drawthisinyourstyle while posting his own artwork of Otus, Owlboy's main character. There's been a ceaseless stream of amazing art popping in since then.


Thank you to all our incredible fans for showering us in all forms of Otus's this summer!

Winding Down
While Owlboy's been a huge success for us on Steam, it recently hit home consoles, which is what we've mostly concentrated on since the original launch. Recovering has been... trying. In July, PCGamer did an interview focusing on the aftermath of releasing one's dream game -


I recommend giving it a read, especially since it covers some of my favorite dev's input on a very familiar topic.

Summer's End
So what does the future bring for our tiny team? We'll let you know soon. Now that we've got some rest, things are slowly ramping up to new and exciting things!

To keep an eye on us or get in touch, always feel free to hook us up at @DPadStudio. We've also created a Steam Developer Page if you want to have a peek at our other titles.

We hope you've had a brilliant summer!
All the best ~ Jo, D-Pad

Owlboy is a story-driven platform 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 10 years in the making.
