Nintendo Switch

Owlboy’s Creator Discussed The Switch & The Game’s Zelda Influence

Owlboy creator and D-Pad Studio art director Simon Stafsnes recently took part in a podcast interview with the Hollywood Reporter, and he had some Nintendo-related things to say. Stafsnes feels that the Switch “seemed like a natural fit” for Owlboy. He also said that the team “all grew up with Nintendo as kids”, and that he has “always been a massive fan of Zelda and Mega Man”. Here’s what he said in full:

“We all grew up with Nintendo as kids. We thought this will fit pretty well. We looked at all the different consoles, because we wanted everyone to play it…but the Switch just seemed like a natural fit for us.”

“I’ve always been a massive fan of Zelda and Mega Man. I think Link’s Awakening was the first game I ever bought with my own money and you can see a lot of that in there. Wind Waker taught me that the most important thing is to have very recognizable shapes for people, so I definitely took inspiration from that and the environment, just to make sure it feels alive and you can interact with everything in it.”
