OverviewOverview

This is a running and jumping adventure where you play Quill and his owl companion Koji as they uncover the secrets of Eagle Island. You work your way through levels using falconry-inspired attacks to take down enemies.

Dispatching enemies in quick succession earns combos for greater rewards. But miss an attack and Quill is left vulnerable while waiting for Koji to return. If Koji is injured or incapacitated, Quill will be briefly defenceless and must take evasive action until his owl friend recovers!

Each time you play, the levels are different and offer a speed-run challenge to get through the sprawling, narrative-driven adventure. As you go you uncover the mystery of the Island and earn permanent upgrades for Quill & Koji. Mix & combine 85 different perk abilities with each gameplay run. Magical feathers imbue your owl with elemental abilities

Along with the story are challenge maps where one wrong step and you have to start again. There are also weekly Speedrun challenges.

Eagle Island has been built from the ground up with accessibility in mind, as out linked in this video.

Although there is not a High Contrast Mode specifically, you can turn the background black that creates a similar effect for the player.

The first time you launch the game, the game audible asks whether you require narration. This enables text-to-speech so you can set up the game.
