Gorgeous pixel-styled platformer Owlboy may be headed to consoles.

In a Q&A on Reddit, the game’s small team spoke on the process of creating the game, including crafting the pixel art, designing the levels, and the struggles of the game’s long development. When asked if the game would ever appear on the Nintendo Switch, though, the team had some new information.

“We are planning to bring the game to consoles!” revealed composer Jonathan Greer. “No specific dates yet, but Mac/Linux will probably come first.”

At the moment, Owlboy?one of 2016’s biggest surprise hits?is only available on Windows PCs.

There are some great insights into the game’s development process in the thread, though there are also a few mild to moderate spoilers. You may only want to read if you’ve completed the game.

As another bonus, Owlboy is currently 20 percent off on Steam.
