Aurion shows a new Gameplay video and announces his partnership with a publisher

Aurion new Gameplay video, Combo and Menu demo (May-2015)

Hello dear Aurionics,

You were many who bring their supports to Aurion on Steam. The Greenlight got by Aurion brought an extra dose of "fighting spirit" on the Kiro'o Team. We thank you once again for all.

Since the Greenlight, the game development evolved very well. We are happy to share with you this new trailer of our game which shows some particular aspects of the Gameplay.

Some specificities of Aurion new trailer

  • New enemies: some of them have strong Group strategies;
  • An oriented escalation phase (choice of trajectory) and endurance;
  • Platforms' phases which contain puzzles and traps;
  • New game's cities: At the end of the video, you can discover ISAO, one of the main game's tribes;
  • The game menu, inventory management and the system of "GPS" which allows the player to locate himself in the world and find out where to go, etc.

Aurion signed by publisher, Plug-In-Digital

"PID" (as they are called in a friendly manner in the studio) is a French publisher which is finding its way gradually in the industry. From the highly anticipated "The Next Penelope" to "Kill the Badguy" or "Giana SistersTwisted Dreams", they have presently over twenty independent games inside their catalog. We have found in "PID" a partner who shares our vision of "Gamer Spirit Design" and think we can grow together, for the future of indie game.

We are looking forward your expert opinion and remarks about this video. They will allow us to better refine Aurion in order to release a game which could appeal to the greatest number.

Besides our website, you could stay tuned here and there in order to receive up-to-date information on « Aurion: Legacy of the Kori-Odan » and the KIRO’O Games studio.

Aurion: Legacy of the Kori-Odan is an incredibly interesting game...The closest comparisons I can make are the very different games Dust: An Elysian Tail and Dusty Revenge, who all have a similar flow to their combat.
