Cameroonian Action-RPG Aurion Turns To Kickstarter

I don’t hear much about games coming out of… well, half the globe, so hearing about Aurion: Legacy of the Kori-Odan [official site] last year was interesting to me. Cameroonian team Kiro’o Games have now turned to Kickstarter to crowdfund the action-RPG drawn from their culture and myths. As with Never Alone, it’s great to have more games teaching about unfamiliar cultures. It looks like Aurion might be a lark too, inspired a bit by Namco’s Tales series. You can see for yourself, as it has a demo.

Aurion sees a prince betrayed by his brother on his combination wedding-and-coronation day, then fighting with his love to reunite the tribe and reclaim the kingdom in 2D real-time action. I haven’t had time to poke at the demo today, but it’s over here so go right ahead. Here’s the Kickstarter pitch video, which has chunks of gameplay:

Or here’s a video focused on the action:

With 21 days to go, Kiro’o have pledges of €16,546 towards their €40,000 goal (about £30,000). If you want in, pledging at least €20 ($15) will get you a copy of the game on Steam for Windows once it’s finished, which is expected to be in April 2016. Planned stretch goals include Mac and Linux versions.
