OWLS is a gesture-operated 2D mobile game where you play a wizard trying to help a badger in his mission to save the lands and birds from corrupted owls. You have to learn the gestures for each spell in order to survive the dark landscapes under a vicious curse. You learn new spells as the story unfolds.
The art for the game is created both by traditional painting methods and 3D-renders that were then combined to create atmospheric landscapes, animals and animation. The environments are created with six parallax scrolling layers. OWLS uses Unity.
Owls is in its final stages of production and will be available for Android in the spring 2022.
