Genres: Action, Adventure

Discover the avian world of Eagle Island with Quill and his loyal owl companion, Koji. Explore lush forests, treacherous caverns, and uncover the ruins of long lost civilizations on your way to confront the gargantuan deity, Armaura, in a desperate attempt to rescue Ichiro from her clutches.

                    

With its falconry-inspired gameplay & uniquely generated worlds, Eagle Island is set to a beautifully modernized pixel art aesthetic and provides a breath of fresh air to the character platforming genre.

                    

Taking inspiration from the rogue-like and metroid-vania genres, Eagle Island can be enjoyed both short runs or a longer story based experience.



Story, Roguelite, and Speedrun modes

Fully procedurally generated worlds

85 different perk abilities to mix up the gameplay each run

Magical feathers transform your owl into elemental forms

16 beautiful environments to explore

12 huge boss battles
                    

Quill's arsenal of solo moves consists simply of running, jumping, and the occasional ledge grab - keeping to it's classic 16-bit inspirations. To survive, you'll need to defeat & subdue threats with the help of your owl companion Koji! Cast Koji & launch attacks in 8-directions — hitting enemies in quick succession & maintaining chain combos earns greater rewards. Miss an attack and you'll be forced to wait longer for Koji to return. If Koji is injured or incapacitated, Quill will be briefly defenseless and must take evasive action whilst vulnerable!

A refreshing hybrid of Metroidvania and roguelite, unfortunately hampered by inconsequential power-ups.

Eagle Island promises a lot, but whether it ever truly delivers I cannot say, because after two days with it I am plain done. I was never quite enjoying it as much as I wanted to, and it never quite came together even during the brief window when the plot took a turn and it looked like it was about to really open up.

Eagle Island is vibrant and worth a look for its world and story, but the combat lets the overall experience down.

Eagle Island is an enjoyable rogue-like game and an unenjoyable Metroidvania that is fortunately pulled up by the fun combat system, beautiful art style and addictive dungeon crawling.
