Patch 2 (August 14, 2018)

Hey everyone,

This is a small patch just to fix some things that I noticed while watching some people play.

Levels
  • Level 28: Removed a useless portion of the level to avoid confusion.
  • Level 29: Fixed a spot where Owl could get stuck.
  • Level 31: Slightly lowered part of the level to prevent an unintended solution.

Online Co-op... Kind Of!

Hey everyone,

It has come to my attention that there is an unofficial workaround to playing online co-op with friends. It is not anything implemented natively, but basically you can use an application called Parsec.

Essentially, it lets one person host the game locally and share their screen with other players online. Their input devices are seamlessly integrated into the host's computer so you can play the game as if you were connected to the host's computer directly. There's very little latency as long as everyone's Internet is good.

I was able to test this successfully with both the 1 controller + 1 keyboard setup and the 2 controller setup for co-op.

I've seen this application being used for games like Enter the Gungeon and Sausage Sports Club -- games that do not inherently have online co-op but use this as a workaround. I just caution that I do not officially support it and give no guarantees that it'll work well for you.

Anyways, just thought you all should know that this is a possible option!

About This Game

The Rabbit and The Owl is a cooperative puzzle-platformer where you (or you and a friend) journey through a fractured yet beautiful and hand-painted negative space landscape. The titular characters are confined to the realms of light and dark and are only able to progress through constant cooperation. Each puzzle requires you to explore and understand how you can best manipulate the environment and utilize the characters' special abilities to reach their respective goals.

The game is set in the ancient world of Yril, a once vibrant land now a faded shell of its former self. At an uncertain point in time, two kindred spirits have manifested themselves as the Rabbit and the Owl. You will guide them through tranquil forests, harsh deserts, crumbling cities, and more while seeing echoes of the past toward a fateful encounter in the depths of Mount Rulnar.

Key Features:
  • Rich puzzles:
    The game naturally introduces and teaches puzzle-solving concepts as you progress. Each puzzle may draw on concepts learned before but always has a specific light bulb moment that is unique only to that level. Variety is the spice of life!
  • Low mechanical skill ceiling:
    Mechanical execution of moving the characters, activating switches, using special abilities, etc. is designed to be less demanding for players who may not be the best at platformers or games in general. The puzzles are mostly solved through careful analysis of what to do -- the difficulty of actually completing them is kept to a minimum.
  • Atmospheric, cohesive aesthetics:
    Unique, painterly artwork for every level and a soothing, original soundtrack to complement the game and the story.
  • Co-op:
    Play solo by swapping between control of the Rabbit and the Owl, or play with a friend by plugging in a controller or two (currently only shared screen and officially tested for Xbox 360/One controllers). There is an unofficial workaround for playing online co-op, but your mileage may vary. Read more about it here.
  • Interpretive story:
    Piece together the mythology of the world and Yril's past to discover why the Rabbit and the Owl are here now.
