Cameroonian game Aurion: Legacy of the Kori-Odan gets a release date

0

April 14 on Steam

Way back in October, we reported on Aurion: Legacy of the Kori-Odan, a game by Cameroonian developer Kiro’o Games that was on Kickstarter.

Since then, the game’s gone from strength to strength. The Kickstarter campaign succeeded, Kiro'o found a publisher in Plug In Digital, and now they have finally announced a release date for Aurion: April 14.

What’s special about Aurion is the fact that it’s a Cameroonian developer making a fantasy game heavily inspired and based on African folklore and culture. Even the trailer’s dubbing is done in the local Bassa dialect, which is a really nice touch. The game itself looks interesting too, with flashy combo-based combat and pretty awesome location designs.

It's also really nice to see a game progress from Kickstarter to full release in such a short amount of time. Usually it takes well over a year for things to come to fruition after a Kickstarter campaign, if they do ever come out at all, so for Aurion to manage it in four months is impressive.

Aurion looks really promising, so I’m excited to play it when it launches on Steam on April 14!
