Owlboy - iam8bit

Get the Owlboy soundtrack on vinyl, and a Boguin plushie that is too cute by far.

The days of video game manuals and beautiful box art may be long gone – and physical releases are not usually an option for most indie games – but the boom in spin-off merchandise means there’s no shortage of game-related paraphernalia to display in our gaming dens.

Of all the companies creating merchandise right now, we do have a soft spot forLos Angeles-based, iam8bit. And in one picture, here’s why…


Owlboy - iam8bit plush

This Boguin plush – taken from D-Pad studio’s Owlboy – is a new release from iam8bit and stands 13 inches tall. It comes complete with a real backpack for ‘stashing stuff’ and is probably the cutest thing we’ve seen since Yarn Poochy.

Also coming soon is the Owlboy Vinyl Soundtrack. The release is a two-LP set pressed onto ‘Cloudy Sky’ vinyl. Jonathan Geer’s score is wrapped in beautiful album art by artist Nicole Gustafsson, and includes a digital copy of the soundtrack. The Owlboy vinyl soundtrack and Boguin plushie are available for pre-order today and are priced at $35 each.

Owlboy - vinyl soundtrack

iam8bit recently announced a vinyl release for Jim Guthrie and JJ Ipsen’s Planet Coaster soundtrack, and have also revealed plans for a piano variations range, starting with Toby Fox’s music from Undertale.

We hate to ask, but...

Thumbsticks has a couple of goals. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough to meet those goals! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
