We’re releasing Savant on a plethora of devices across the universe! On the 4th you can get it on iOS, Android and Steam, for PC, Mac and Linux, with some added features! Also, we’ve updated the Savant site(savantgame.com) abit for the occasion.
On PC, Mac and Linux you can finally choose you’re own in-game resolution, up to a max of 1680×1050. To the Android(and now iOS) versions, we’ve added a new control system that let’s you play the game using virtual buttons, to avoid cluttering up the screen with your own fingers.
For anyone who got the Humble Store, they will be able to download the new version of the game for their PCs, Macs or Linuxses, aswell as being able to integrate your purchase on Steam!
Here are some HD screenshots for good measure! Click the image below to open the gallery, or see them in full size at our Facebook page.
Our very first release! I seriously can’t believe it! We started this project approx 5 weeks ago, and we’re acctually releasing it today!
We’ve updated the website at SavantGame.com so you can get it from there.
Later, when we’ve slept a little from 3 days of no sleep, we’ll elaborate a little on the game, and do a little playthrough stream with the team.]]>
Owlboy will be at PAX Prime this year, showcased together with some of my favorite indie games!!! I’m a little bit starstruck, and a little bit stressed(actually, a whole lot of stressed)!
Check out the entire roster here of PAX 10 here: PAX 10 Game Index
There will be new demo, new website, new announcements! So much new! Check out the new Owlboy website here(owlboygame.com), and get your ass to PAX so we can show you what’s new! Hope to see you there!
Allright summer is over, and it’s time to open the lid on all these teaser’s we’ve been doing!
Our game is a collab between us and our musical artist buddy, Savant! Have a look at the trailer below! Hope you’ll like it!
It’ll be released on the 30th of July.
Now it’s back to Owly business as usual!]]>
Aside from our endless teasing this summer, Aleksander Vinter(aka Savant) is also hard at work with his new album! And who better to put on the task of conjuring up some artwork for the album than Simon! Hit it!
I don’t know when the album releases yet, but I’m saving up for new speakers at the office while waiting.
Also, we have started a tumblr! Here: D-Pad Studio on Tumblr!]]>
We started our summer vacation two weeks ago, but due to suffering from the workaholic syndrome, we’ve refused to put our hands to rest. We’ve been working on a tiny project which is going to be free to play and available and complete in only a couple weeks time.
We can’t reveal the project just yet, but we’ve started to tease the game over at the D-Pad Facebook page showing off only a few pixels every couple of hours or so. I’ll update the picture beneath accordingly:
… and it’s game time! Specifically, we’re going to play around with Simon’s old projects. Me, Simon and Henrik will be doing a live-stream over on Twitch.tv like last week, this time with a second batch of games. The stream starts at 10pm Norwegian time(4pm central), can be seen here: http://www.twitch.tv/snakepixel
We’ve uploaded a live feed from our office, where we’re playing though Simon’s older projects which I’ve never had the chance to see. We’re planning to make a new episode next weekend with a second batch of older games he’s made. Here’s a recording from this weeks stream:
While Simon is down in San Francisco GDC, having all the fun(*bicker, bicker*), meeting developers and greeting fans, I thought it was time to bring some fan-art to the spotlight.
Today, featuring one which contains Owlboy’s trio, Otus, Geddy and Alphonse, striking poses like their lives depended on it, penned to homage both Adrian’s birtday and Jojo’ Bizzare Adventure:

Simon’s been busy cramming as many pixels as he can into our game, to leave us something to work with as he flies off to GDC in San Francisco. I’ll leave this here for reference.
I can’t tell you much about this jungly place, except that we’ve tried to do alot of atmospheric experimentation throughout it. I think this place might be one of the most unique locations we have added yet, aswell as being one of the more challenging ones.
This year, us programmers are left behind at the office to keep crunching the code, but Simon will be roaming San Fran for about two weeks. If you spot him, be sure to ask him for some swag, he’s even brought a couple of Owlboy T-Shirts, if you’d like to try and wrestle it off of him.
I hope he get’s a chance to meet many heroes down there, including the Vlambeer gang, who’s game I’ve played ridiculously much these last couple of days. Despite being close to having completed it %100, I still can’t put it away. It might be my natural Norwegian love for the art of fishing, or just that the game is absolutly awesome. If you own any I- device, go on, get fishin!
(Read in angry/bitter voice, with a hint of sadness)Here’s alse hoping Simon’ll have a nice trip.]]>
