The Rabbit and the Owl is a single-player or two-player co-op puzzle-platformer which introduces a negative space landscape. The titular characters exist in opposite worlds of light and dark and are only able to progress by helping each other. Gameplay emphasizes solving puzzles which are composed of various mechanics that shift the environment and affect both characters in different ways.

The game is set in the world of Yril, an ethereal world fractured into light and dark. Where a vibrant land once existed now lies a faded shell of its former self. Remnants of an ancient conflict litter the landscape.

Now, two kindred spirits, for reasons unknown, have manifested themselves as the Rabbit and the Owl. You will help guide the Rabbit and the Owl through tranquil forests, harsh deserts, crumbling cities, and more while seeing echoes of the past along the way toward a fateful encounter in the depths of Mt. Rulnar.
