Aurion: Legacy of the Kori-Odan is a 2D African Fantasy Action-RPG which seeks to innovate in this genre. The dynamic gameplay partly inspired by the old school "Tales of" series, focuses on 2D real-time combat sequences while the narration and its environment both draw deeply from African culture, myths and lores.
In the game, you will take the role of Enzo Kori-Odan, the Prince of Zama who suffers a coup d'état from his brother in-law on the day of his coronation and marriage with Erine Evou. Through thrilling execution, combo-heavy action sequences, Erine and Enzo will redefine their bond, rescue the land from its villains, and restore their legacy. Luckily, Enzo can call on the Aurion, a powerful collective energy channelled from ancestors that can unlock devastating fighting abilities and combos to help him beat his foes.
A rich universe color, a game with twists; a game full of existential values and action waiting for you.
Aurion's gameplay combines African legends and lore with fast-paced real-time combat. In the exploration phase (see image above), 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, jump, climb, feed your characters according to their feeding preferences in order to make them develop their speed, etc.
In combat (view some images below at the paragraph title "screenshots"):
- Gather your legacy, unlock devastating strikes to combo with, and mix aurions to create new ones.
- Confront enemies as Enzo, with Erine’s assistance and make the best out of the couple in combat.
- Join a spiritual quest that takes our heroes to journey across a wonderful world of African fantasy.
- Powerful duels with fascinating and immersive dialogues, etc.
