Eagle Island On Kickstarter

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

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

 

Feel free to try the game for yourself! This demo has been tested on a limited number of machines, so I apologize if you run into any issues, it’s just an early alpha build! The full game will be available on Mac and Linux as well.

Quill’s arsenal of solo moves consists of running, jumping and the occasional ledge grab – the game keeps to its classic 16-bit inspiration.

Launch attacks with Koji in 8 directions using the D-pad-like aiming controls. Hit enemies in quick succession to earn greater rewards from combos.

Miss an attack and you’ll be forced to wait longer for Koji to return. If Koji is attacked or captured, Quill will be briefly defenseless and must take evasive action whilst vulnerable!

Shortly after beginning your adventure, you bump into Dr Oliver Ornis, world famous ornithologist. He instructs you to find and rescue the ancient Totems before the gargantuan diety, Armaura, captures them.

Anyone who acquires the feather of a Totem will be granted elemental powers – combine them with Koji for powerful special attacks! You’ll need ancient gems to power these attacks, these can be obtained by performing successful combos.

Quill and Koji can carry a limited number of perks at one time. You’ll have to carefully select which ones you keep based on the level you’re playing.

Each level is carved out uniquely – you’ll never see the same terrain formation twice. Enemies and power ups are scattered throughout. It’s your choice: rush to the boss or explore and get stronger.

How much variety is there in the procedural generation? Lots.
