Cameroon's first ever video games, Aurion: Legacy of the Kori-Odan, features an African hero, and is part of a growing video games industry across Africa.

The Guardian

Kiro’o, and the ascendent African game industry as a whole, is an important part of a blooming tech startup culture, driven by young people.


The Guardian, Journalist


Aurion: Legacy of the Kori-Odan, A Video Game that transports players to a different kind of Africa.


KOTAKU, Videogames Writer


Aurion design and feel are unmistakably fresh, offering a bold color palette and interesting unit designs.


POLYGON, Video Game Reporter


Aurion is a fast-paced brawler that gives you access to loads of fantastical combos with which you defeat your enemies.



Joel Couture

Aurion: Legacy of the Kori-Odan has deep, intricate combat for a game whose story focuses on togetherness and community.


Indiegames.Com, Author & Editor


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.


DESTRUCTOID, Videogames Writer

Rock Paper Shotgun

As with Never Alone, it’s great to have more games teaching about unfamiliar cultures.
