Demonstrated: The Pleasing Visuals Of Aaru’s Awakening


Good day to you, fine Internet. Lumenox Games send word that their beautiful 2D platformer, Aaru’s Awakening, has a new trailer, which you can find embedded below. It's astonishingly pretty, and shows off the game's key mechanic - teleportation - across some exquisitely hand-drawn levels. You really will want to take a look at this. But wait! As Alec previously noted, there's also a demo over on the Greenlight page. That means you can play it.

Perhaps you should.

Straight outta the '90s.

The devs explain:

Aaru's Awakening takes place in Lumenox - a fictional universe controlled by four entities. The world of Lumenox is created with a transcendent, dreamy art style that is completely drawn by hand. The music is carefully crafted to further your experience with dreamy hymns, that capture the mood of the game. The storyline is expressed through cinematic cut scenes. Everything is created to deliver the unique experience of the world of Lumenox.

Aaru’s Awakening is intended for release by the end of the year.
