Emberwind, the 2D platformer starring a diminutive gnome that likes to ride owls in shoot'em up stages during his spare time, is now available for PCs and Macs. Swedish indie developer Timetrap self-released the game yesterday for $12 (with a $4.99 eSellerate fee).

In Emberwind, you defend the city of Grendale from armies of gremlins and their leader CandleFinger (one of the more useful villains to have around during a blackout). Along with firing cannons and beating people with your cane, you can take to the skies on an ancient snow owl to blast away at, um, clouds.

You can purchase and learn more about Emberwind from its official site. Timetrap has also made available a demo with unlimited play time.
