Early Access
Development Update

Over the past months, the Wither team has been hard at work updating Crowman & Wolfboy. The characters are now fully configured to support Unity's 2D animations and they look great! It breaths a new life into the game. New levels have been finalized and bring a nice visual variety to the game with fully colored environments (there's a story element to this but you'll have to play to find out more). With the new levels come tougher enemies and obstacles as well as some new unlockable abilities and hidden collectables. The Android port has also launched, leaving us able to move on to what we've really been wanting to get our hands dirty with: the Steam version of Crowman & Wolfboy!

We have the game currently running on both PC and Mac, with controller support! It feels awesome to control the game with a physical controller after years of flat touch screens. The team has been playing around with a few different control schemes to see what works the best. We are also in the process of redesigning the UI and tutorials as well as experimenting with some gameplay changes. Additionally, there are a few things that still need to be made compatible with the Steam build such as cut scenes, dialog boxes, achievements and certain level transitions. Those are the aspects to be tackled next.




Early Access

Crowman & Wolfboy will be getting an Early Access release! An early version of the game will be available through Steam so that our team can get valuable user feedback as we continue development. There will be customization settings for users to play with, such as creating custom control schemes and changing the speed of the game. Our hope is that you will help us to shape Crowman & Wolfboy to take full potential of its new platform on Steam. We'd like to be very open in discussing feedback with players as well as how we plan on updating the game.

All of us at Wither are very much looking forward to sharing Crowman & Wolfboy with a new audience and setting the foundation for a new relationship with our fans through Early Access. We don't have specific release date yet but I will let you know when it's closer. We shouldn't be too far away!

Thanks for reading! :)

Description
Release date: 2015
INCREDIBLE ADVENTURE
Crowman & Wolfboy are an unlikely pair of shadow creatures on a bizarre journey to escape their own nature and find the mysterious "humans". Help them flee the planet of shadows and the life-devouring Darkness following their every step. Will the path to “humans” lead Crowman & Wolfboy to happiness? Will they ever escape the persistent Darkness? Could a real life crow lift a real life wolf over pits of mutant garbage cans? ...What?!

KEY FEATURES
• 70+ levels of challenging platforming action!
• Over 15 unique environments
• Unlock new and special abilities
• Collect light orbs that push back the pursuing Darkness
• Captivating soundtrack by Hildor of Dethlehem
• Find hidden items, unlock ancient knowledge and save the babies!
• Travel through space and time in unique play modes!
• Achievements and Leaderboards

ADDITIONAL DETAILS
Crowman & Wolfboy is a story driven action-adventure/platformer. Progression through the game is level based and has some Metroidvania elements where you can come back to levels, with upgraded abilities, to access new areas. The levels start off smaller and continually get larger and more complex, with branching paths, as you progress. There are many environments, each with increasingly challenging enemies and obstacles. Throughout the game there is also an ancient evil Darkness chasing after Crowman & Wolfboy; it will be present in almost every level. The only defense against the Darkness is to grab the light orbs that are scattered throughout the environments. Collecting these orbs will knock back the Darkness. There are little orbs that nudge the monstrous entity back a small amount and big orbs that knock it back a significant amount.

Each level has three bonus objectives: get through the level without taking a damage, collect all three big orbs and save the baby! Saving the baby animals can sometimes be tricky because the Darkness loves to eat babies. However, there are certain special babies with unique abilities that could help Crowman & Wolfboy on their journey. Every new type of baby you save is logged in your "Big Book of Saved Babies" and contains close up artwork of every baby and additional information about them. Another book you'll have is "The Tome of Knowledge" which provides more back story and information about the worlds Crowman & Wolfboy travel to. The Tome pages unlock as you progress through the story and each page contains new artwork along with it.

FROM MOBILE TO STEAM
Hi-Res: The Steam version will feature higher resolution art.
Controls: The current controls are swipe based, on mobile devices. However, Crowman & Wolfboy is built using Unity and while developing the game we test it, in engine, on PC first. So rest assured that the keyboard controls will work well with the game; as it is built from the ground up utilizing the keyboard. We also plan on having full controller support.
Exclusive Content: The Steam version of C&W will feature bonus content, not offered on the mobile platform. This content is still being decided on and we will let you know as soon as more details are fleshed out. The team has a lot of cool ideas for this!
Pricing: Wither Studios is a small indie developer and we do realize that Crowman & Wolfboy is a relatively smaller game than most big AAA titles. So it won't have a high price tag attached on Steam. Our goal is to make sure that you get a great experience for reasonable price.
