A Celebration of Indie Roguelike Games!

Explore the avian world of Eagle Island alongside Quill and his loyal owl, Koji, in a desperate attempt to rescue Koji’s sibling Ichiro from the Guardian Eagle, Armaura.

One of the most highly anticipated roguelike games of 2019, the award-winning Eagle Island celebrates and innovates the platforming genre with its uniquely generated worlds and falconry-inspired gameplay mechanics.


Accessible Game Design is our Mission

Pixelnicks and Screenwave Media Games collaborated to design Eagle Island as an inclusive experience featuring a wealth of accessibility options to accommodate the multi-faceted needs of modern gamers.

Enjoy story mode, randomized roguelike dungeons, and competitive speed runs, with a variety of difficulty levels to suit your skill level.

Features:

  • A Family Adventure Game With Near-Endless Possibilities!
  • Explore a handcrafted hub world with procedurally assembled dungeons
  • Mix and match 85 different abilities with each gameplay run
  • Find Magical Feathers to imbue your owl with elemental abilities
