Overview: 'Owlboy' has been in development nearly 10 years, outliving an entire console generation. To keep the game relevant, D-Pad Studio has had to re-design the game several times, redraw art assets and spend years and years on polish. The team's number one goal has been to make sure that, despite being a decade old, 'Owlboy' will look like a game worthy of its time.
