Eagle Island
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 monstrous eagle, Armaura, in a desperate attempt to rescue Koji's brother, Ichiro, from her clutches.

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

Quill & Koji
Quill's solo moves consist 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.

The Totems
Shortly after beginning your adventure, you bump into Dr Oliver Ornis, world famous ornithologist. He instructs you to find and rescue the ancient Totems, giant magical birds, before the monstrous eagle, 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.

Levels & Perks
While exploring the Eagle Island overworld, you'll find the entrances to nine themed areas. Each area has its own enemies, challenges and boss.

Find treasure chests hidden throughout the the levels. Each one is guarded by a magpie - pay some golden seeds and the chest is yours. The perk inside will power up Koji in a unique way. You'll have to adapt your gameplay style depending on the perks you receive.

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.
