Our upcoming game Owlboy has been choosen as part of the PAX Rising this year.

If you're going to PAX West this September, make sure to give our booth a visit at PAX Rising, smack in the middle of the PAX main floor, we'd love to meet you and let you try our next title! Its a big one, it's been in develoment for now almost 10 years(!!!).

At PAX, we're going to finally reveal the launch date for our biggest game yet!

That's awesome! I hope one of the devs stops by here to talk about the game a little bit. He did the last time there was an Owlboy-related topic.

We've yet to finalize any porting schedules or plans but I don't see why not. The heat death of the universe is still a good ways away. Seriously though, we learned a lot from the Savant Ascent launch. Supporting many platforms in parallel at launch is a heavy load for 5 people.
great news - might this also include the 3ds?

I'm hesitant to say much on handhelds.
I would have to have more technical specs on the system to really know if that would be possible. Henrik has done an amazing job optimising the game engine on slower hardware, even onboard video. I think that if we can either fine tune OGG for a monogame port or find a good c# wrapper for Opus audio codecs, we would be able to fit into most file size restrictions. Again I don't know the hardware that well.

What's next, Half life 3?

Man, I remember this as a project on the TIGSource forum in the early days. So glad it's coming out soon.

I believe it's still possible but It's simply not optimised for the 360 anymore. We will look into it again once the PC version has run the gauntlet of launch.
Nah, Im mostly joking. You guys should go straight to XB1 and PS4 (and NX maybe!). Game still looks amazing, Im sure could be a hit on current gen platforms

I do have my 360 hooked up, but its basically a Netflix machine now
