This video, released over the weekend, showcases both the music of composer Jonathan Geer and the game's charming art style, which for want of something more descriptive reminds me of a Genesis version of Wind Waker.

I am now certain that Owlboy was inspired by Wonderboy of Tenacious D.

And yes I've been waiting for this game for far too long. I'm hoping it's not such a massive personal disappointment as Fez was.
