Aurion: The Awakening Trailer (February 2016)
Enzo Kori-Odan, prince of Zama suffers a coup d'etat from his brother-in-law on the day of his coronation and marriage with Erine Evou. The royal couple is then exiled and decides to go round the world in search of support. They would specifically have to reunite Enzo’s warring legacy in order to retrieve their throne.
Beyond retrieving their position, the fallen Royal couple shall precisely discover the geopolitical and existential dilemmas attached to their functions of King and Queen. They would have to find answers in order to secure the destiny of Zama.
World and culture
The planet where the game takes place is called Auriona. It is made up of 6 continents. The world’s population is made up of 6 main ethnic groups which are connected to a horrible history.
Throughout their journeys towards these various people, Enzo and Erine encounter ideological dilemmas which make up their initiation paths towards maturity.
Aurion is at the same time a mystery and evidence in the Auriona planet. This energy was discovered a long time ago and manifests in many ways (battle, handicraft, etc) in daily life. Those who use it in battle are called Aurionics and they can increase their power and have access to untold fighting techniques for a short lapse of time.
However, these techniques seem to “come from elsewhere”. During battle, warriors hear their ancestor’s voices. This explains why the aurion art of battle is called the Legacy. Legacies are connected to common elements (water, fire, earth etc) but also untold elements which are a perfect fusion of common elements (for instance water and fire which fuse perfectly).
Aurion can be considered as an energetic form of life which exists in other forms. An Aurion is born from the sum of emotions and thoughts of one or many individuals and can be completed for example as generations of the same family come and go, hence the concept of Legacy.
Gameplay is devided into two phases :
The exploration phase
The game unfolds in horizontal scrolling but with a vertical freedom of movements (just as in the former beat them all). Therefore you will be able to:
- Walk, run
- Feed your characters according to their feeding preferences in order to make them develop faster, etc.
The combat phase
Our goal is to create a high definition RPG 2D Action which draws its inspiration from the tales of destiny in form and which is much more innovative and dynamic.
Strategic and epic real time combats (our gameplay is a combination of both the dynamism of real time and the strategy necessary with rounds).
- Face enemies as Enzo, with Erine’s assistance and make the best out of the couple in combat.
- Strategic and epic real time combats.
- Gather your Legacy, unlock devastating strikes to combo with, and mix aurions to create new ones.
- Striking duels with immersion combat dialogues.
- Join a spiritual quest that takes our heroes to journey across a wonderful world of African fantasy, etc.
Auriona is a living and rich world. Travel around it to discover the wealth of Kiro’o through many additional activities:
- Untold annexe quests
- Hunt for scarce monsters and create your equipment with their aurionic species
- And other interesting stuff!!
