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?!


The team at Wither Studios created Crowman & Wolfboy as an expression of their appreciation for childhood platformers. These games have helped remind the team how unforgiving games used to be. Every level a gauntlet, movements needed to be planned and perfectly timed for fear of restarting. Every small win an epic achievement for the brave few that dare test the waters and push through the challenging puzzle. Gothic influences are also apparent in Crowman & Wolfboy and the team searched for creative ways to incorporate these mature themes into a lighthearted story and a visually appealing art style. There are hints of science fiction within the story and design of C&W. The mysteries that lie within the voids of space provide a vast landscape to paint countless story possibilities and interesting twists in what a contemporary platformer can offer.
