“Very charming pixelated rogue-lite metroidvania, but don't let this childfriendly graphics fool you. Game is challenging. But don't be scared,after a failure,comes determination! A must play! :3”

Free For Owl Update: features and fixes!



From the outset, I wanted to create Eagle Island to be an experience where you can play the game to best suit your needs - a challenge I took head-on to make roguelites more accessible without compromising the genre’s core ideas. So many people have been playing Eagle Island, thanks for stepping up to offer feedback and continuing to support the game since launch!

A sincere Thank You to everybody enjoying their time with Eagle Island. Our Discord community has been growing steadily and just surpassed 1000 members! Our award-winning game is soaring to new heights - and thanks to the community’s feedback, which has been instrumental in the development of this free patch, I’ve got a lot of great ideas for future features and additional content. My aim is to make this the best 2D roguelite platformer of 2019!

I'm adding to Eagle Island’s already thorough list of accessibility options, further allowing players to leverage in-game features for more personalized gameplay experiences.

I’ve pushed a bunch of features, rebalances and fixes in the upcoming patch, including some of the most requested features:

  • New “Lite” difficulty setting - bridging the gap between Casual and Core
  • 360° aiming option
  • Permanent runestones option
  • Store extra runestones in Quill's backpack
  • Win bonus runestones on a game over
  • Create a loadout of runestones from Quill's backpack at the beginning of a run
  • Improved thumbstick aiming controls - for both 360° and non-360° aiming
  • Revamped difficulty screens
  • Option to change difficulty level on Game Over
  • Rebalanced several runestones & abilities based on additional player feedback

About This Game

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 Guardian Eagle, 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 roguelite platformers.

                    

Taking inspiration from roguelites, Eagle Island can be enjoyed in a variety of ways — from short, focused speed runs to a sprawling, narrative-driven adventure.

  • Story Mode - uncover the mystery of the Island of Yulu while earning permanent upgrades for Quill & Koji!
  • Rogue Mode - test your skills in a series of 16 unlockable challenge maps - permadeath awaits!
  • Weekly Speedrun - a new map every week, compete and rise up the leaderboard!
  • Explore a handcrafted hub world with procedurally generated dungeons
  • Mix & combine 85 different perk abilities with each gameplay run
  • Magical feathers imbue your owl with elemental abilities
  • 16 beautiful environments to explore
  • 12 huge boss battles

                    

Quill's arsenal of moves consists of running, jumping, and a cliff-hanging 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 cardinal directions — dispatching enemies in quick succession for chain combos earns greater rewards. Miss an attack and Quill is left vulnerable while waiting for Koji to return. If Koji is injured or incapacitated, Quill will be briefly defenseless and must take evasive action until his owl friend recovers!
