AN AFRICAN-FANTASY RPG GAME IN HOLLYWOOD?

Enzo Kori-Odan, the game's hero is on the way to conquer United States of America

Hello dear Aurionics, we hope you are well. Just to share this awesome and epic news recenlty published by The Hollywood Reporter: "African Video Game 'Aurion: Legacy of the Kori-Odan' Gets Movie Treatment". The treatment is running by Good Fear Film, a company managed by Chris Bender and Jake Weiner who have picked up the rights of the game. According to Chris and Jake, "This is an incredibly unique entry into the fantasy genre and we are as inspired by Madiba as we are in the world that he has created".

 

How did it start? When the film will be released?

Few months ago (just after Aurion's release on Steam), the studio has been contacted by Jack Weiner from Good Fear Film. At first we thought about a scam because it was unbelievable for it to happen so fast (^^). After a second mail, we confirmed that it was serious then we responded. When the CEO MADIBA Olivier was in the USA for the program YALI, he also spoke with Jack Weiner. He has very appreciated the originality of Aurion's story and he concluded that Aurion's scenario could be good in a movie or several movies.

The project is still going on and presently, we cannot give a released date. However, we will keep you informed about the evolution. Stay tuned!

Aurionically yours!

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.

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