Prepare yourself if you are one of the many people that enjoyed the tales delivered from Never Alone – the video game that went into detail of Alaskan folklore. This new video game seeks to deliver information of African folklore mixed with mythology focusing on an African hero. The hero in question is Enzo, prince of Zama who suffers a coup d’etat from his brother-in-law on the day of his coronation and marriage to Erine, which they are then exiled from Zama and must work together to find support and take back the throne.
In Aurion, the combat system appears to feel like most side scrolling games of the genre, but at the same time featuring unique and fluid combat like real time magic nullification or the vast amount of combos teased by the trailers. Aside from combat, the game also features an exploration phase where you can walk, run, jump, swim, and climb. Included in this phase is finding food which you can feed your characters to boost their development.
Now, when not working directly on trying to get the throne back there is also the time where you can do other activities such as hunting monsters for their special drops that let you create new items, helping the citizens of the world, and more yet to be revealed.
The game has recently been fully funded on Kickstarter and is expected out sometime this year.
