Eagle Island looks like a truly wonderful platformer which involves falconry

Posted by , | Views: 2,538

Yes, falconry. In Eagle Island it seems you won't be punching or kicking your way through it, you will be throwing your bird friends in the face of your enemies and it looks delightful.

It's actually one I completely missed from Kickstarter, which was fully funded back in May of 2017. Catching up with the developer recently, I asked about Linux support for it and they said pretty clearly that they "currently have the alpha running smoothly in Ubuntu and intend to have the full version ready for the launch date". However, they did mention due to Linux being a little trickier for them it could see a small delay but hopefully not.

Feature highlight:

  • 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

Going to have to take a look at this one at release, which should be sometime next month. The art looks fantastic, the combat looks fun too.

You can follow it and wishlist on Steam.

Oh, looks fun!
Would be nice if that one showed up on GOG, too - I can imagine that GOG has a huge share of people that like this kind of retro-platformers....
(would immediately go to my wishlist)

As always with GOG, it depends on them accepting it. The developer did say on the Kickstarter they planned to talk to GOG, so hopefully!

That falcon looks totally owlish, but I guess it's normal on Eagle Island.

Reminds me of Kid Kool where you use owl-ish looking bird as a throwing weapon.
