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…
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.
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.
