Step into the enchanted world of Owlboy full of floating islands. The story of the game centers on a mute owl called Otus, the protagonist of the game. Otus is not your typical type of protagonist who is a god-like figure or a superhero in costumes. Rather, Otus is one of the few inhabitants of the Owlboy world that has the ability to fly.
However, Otus has a distinct characteristic among the rest. It is mute. A sad, bullied figure who starts the game in such a miserable situation that it’s quite unbearable to watch.
On the other hand, a catastrophe befell on the peaceful environment of their world. The sky-pirates seek to invade and destroy their capital and steal powerful artifacts during the encroach.
With this, Otus took this opportunity to set out and prove to everyone that he doesn’t deserve any of those bad impressions that was thrown at him. Otus together with his friends set forth on an adventure to save the world mainly for the benefit of their co-villagers, their community, and especially, Otus himself.
The gameplay is more of like a Metroidvania-style dungeon exploration. But, knowing the fact that Otus is not the type of deity, all he can do is just dashing, spinning and flying. In order for you to help Otus in his adventure, you can make use of his companions that empowers great abilities. His best friend, Geddy, has a reliable weapon, which is a gun that can defeat most of the opponents after several hits.
As the game progress, you’ll acquire other allies that possess extra powerful weapons with different abilities for an ultimate damage and obstacle destruction. Plus, you can also obtain a hook-shot style device that can instantly save you from danger.
