    Few games live up to owl boys story telling, and the pace of the game is great truly a beauty to play on the switch when it was only available before on Steam for PC. Highly recommend it.

    It's a really fun game with a good story. The combat is a little wierd because the main character doesn't have any type of attacks only his friends.

    The animation of this game is what drew me (no pun intended). But the gameplay mechanics along with a solid story is worth a look at.

    I had been waiting for the physical release of this because of all the hype around it and it has not disappointed. I love the art, the story, the gameplay and especially the price.

    A Worthy Addition to the Switch Collection

    The game itself is excellent, with fun metroid-vania like progression and exploration, as well as an engaging story and beautifully rendered art style. The physical version itself seems a bit lacking (it's just the cover and the game cart) when compared to Nicalis games (usually include full manuals and other 'goodies'), but otherwise it's a worthy indie darling that feels most appropriate to have on the Switch.

    I picked this up on sale and with my gamer's club discount and it was totally worth it. Immersive story and entertaining game play. Would not buy it at regular price, but worth it if you can get it on sale.

    Despite being a fun game with a great story that will leave the player with 7 to 10 hours of content, it falls short on unique ideas and leaves the player with some repetitive tasks that will make you want to quit at times. This is well worth a play-through however and for the price of $15-20 I would definitely not miss out on this one. Its full retail price is a bit steep though.

    This is a unique platformer with a super cool art style and a good story. The controls feel a little clunky at times, but they don't hinder the experience too much. Overall, it's a really good game.
