What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We want to ensure that Island Bender is as smooth and polished as possible before you install it in 1.0.
On the beta branch 'unstable,' you will receive the most recent updates from development.
Please submit any feedback, suggestions, or bugs via Discord!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We plan to leave Early Access end of 2024!”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The full version of Island Bender will differ from the Early Access version in a few key ways. At full launch, we plan to implement all the levels in the game making sure they're all dynamic and each and every one has its own customized textures. Finally, we'll also be adding some new secret mechanics that you'll have to discover as you play through the game.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current state includes three textured levels, four stackable abilities, up to six players, and a quite polished bending and fighting experience.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“The price will increase as a lot more cool features and content are added to the game.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“Island Bender is meant to be played with friends and family, encouraging everyone to get together and have loads of fun. That’s why creating joy through gaming is at the heart of our game and our team. We will (and already do) continue interacting with all existing and new players very closely on our Discord server and around social media, also as a way to obtain feedback. We’re pretty chill, so feel free to reach out anytime.”

About This Game


  • 1-6 Player Local Multiplayer
  • Create, throw, catch, and block Rocks
  • 11 Powerups
  • 24 Maps


It only takes one button to create and throw rocks. But you can also do the usual platform movement with a jump, double jump, and dash. While the rock throwing also gives you a boost and refills your double jump.


Collect firelights and gain power-ups like spikes, triple rocks, or shotguns. Combine the power-ups to change the balance of the playing field.


Once the game clicks with you, moving through the levels and taking your shots becomes intuitive.


The game features maps with two distinct art styles and minimalist arena maps.
