“Peaking Out Of The Sand ‘Ostrich Island’ Shows A Beautifully Crafted World To Explore” Alex Wilkinson, Indie Game Magazine
“Seriously, in love with this game is what I am – in love!”
Chris Priestman, Indie Statik
“...the whole game is presented in an aesthetic that is pleasing to the eye and actually makes you want to stay on the island at times, instead of escaping.”
Martin Baker, GodIsAGeek

Volcano erupts! All archipelago residents have been evacuated, but one ostrich had his head in the sand. Can you help him escape and rejoin his family? Ostrich Island is the unique mix between an adventure, platformer and RPG. Explore beautiful islands, search for collectibles, level up and gain new abilities. Play with your friend in multiplayer mode!
Different types of levels: sunny tropical paradise, storm madness, underground tunnels, underwater craziness and even procedural generated in-the-air platformer!
At the end of each level you gain experience points and upgrade Ostrich with new skills and abilities.
Multiplayer. Play with your friend, helping her or him discover hidden treasures, skins, hats and statuettes, or just kick your buddy to steal some points.
Custom skins support. Tired of existing skins? Add your own!
Lots of collectibles and hidden bonuses, ones discovered they can be closely examined in the Nest or used for your Ostrich customization.
Two difficulty levels: "Relaxing", where you can slowly investigate the islands, searching for collectibles with nothing to worry about, and "Escape", where constantly rising water level adds some stress but increases score multipliers in return.
Global leader board and country scoreboard across all platforms.
Your score and game progress are saved in the cloud. You can easily start playing on your Windows machine at home and continue on a Mac/Linux computer at your friends place.
