Kickstarter’s campaign poster

Hello dear Aurionics,

Aurion started its adventure on Kickstarter on September 15, 2015. The campaign reached 53% in less than a month. Thanks a lot to all our Aurionic Backers. It will end on October 20, 2015 and we really hope it will be a success.

Aurion: Legacy of the Kori-Odan

It is a 2D Fantasy-Action-RPG which pays homage to the culture and legacy of Africa and innovates in the RPG genre. Aurion features hand-drawn and animated African-style graphics and a deep storyline that unfolds over more than 20 hours of action-packed gameplay that is filled with combat and combos. The dynamic gameplay is partially inspired by the old school Tales Of series, and focuses on 2D real-time combat sequences with narration and environments both drawing deeply from African culture, myths and lore.

Our heroes Enzo and Erine in combat with Manyang Ant, an enemy in the game.

The story of Aurion begins with a young prince named Enzo Kori-Odan. on the eve of his coronation and wedding day with Erine Evou. Little did he know that Ngarba Evou, his new brother-in-law, plotted to overthrow him.

A Kickstarter campaign, WHY?

During our last Greenlight campaign, there were some gamers who suggested us to launch a Kickstarter campaign in order to improve the development (quality of game, translation, etc.). After many analysis with our publisher Plug-In-Digital, we finally decide to do it. So our goals are to get funds which will go to final development of the game including updates to the Interface, beautiful new hand-drawn characters and animation, and possibly toward new hires and support for additional platforms.

Some hot stretch goals unveiled!

Two game designers Paul Bertone (design director of Halo 3 at Bungie) and Didier Chanfray (Alone in the Dark) will join the Team if we reach 75,000€.

The game could be port on PS4 if we raise 100,000€. Pledge and support us as much as you can. We need you! Thanks!
