Description

Play as a young owl born into a desert full of tasty prey and scary predators. Glide through the desert on a journey of survival, growing your abilities along the way.

History

Pixelvex

Jared Cook and Peter Carlson have been making hobby game projects together since college. They made a laughably bad ARPG called Kazgar's Revenge together during college, a ridiculously fun brawler called Metagalactic Blitz shortly after graduating, and now are releasing a chill physics game about owls and cute desert critters.

Winging It

The main inspiration for this game came from a hike Jared took in the White Tank Mountains in Arizona. The atmosphere of the desert was suprisingly calm, and the native plants all so interesting and diverse. The idea of being a small owl living in a saguaro cactus was instantly appealing. Jared worked on developing satisfying gliding mechanics, and Peter brought his sense of humor into all the desert critter animations. They both worked to bring the right mood of a chill, nighttime desert journey to life.
