Welcome to the Kickstarter that brings Aurion's African magic and mythology to life. With your help, we can push this African fantasy, action RPG to completion. Aurion offers hand-drawn and animated African-style graphics that tell a deep storyline that unfolds over more than 20 hours of action-packed gameplay, heavy with combat and combos.  

Help us bring this never-before-seen 2D action RPG to PC with a strong interface and a bevy of beautifully hand-drawn characters and animation.

Both Paul Bertone and Didier Chanfray will come into play when we reach the 75,000€ stretch goal. Help us reach this goal to unlock a reworked and more beautiful Aurion: LKO for its release in 2016!
Find out more on them and their role in the developement of Aurion: LKO on the Update #6.

Here is what people are saying...

 And here is another great article about Aurion and Kiro'o Games:
http://iq.intel.com/new-game-aurion-inspired-by-african-culture/

Aurion: Legacy of the Kori-Odan is a 2D African Fantasy Action-RPG which seeks to innovate in this genre. The dynamic gameplay partly inspired by the old school ‘Tales of’ series, focuses on 2D real-time combat sequences while the narration and its environment both draw deeply from African culture, myths and lores.

It should have been a perfect day for Enzo Kori-Odan, Prince of Zama. He was scheduled to marry his lifelong love Erine Evou and be crowned the new King. Little did he know that Ngarba Evou, his new brother-in-law, plotted to overthrow him.

Through thrillingly executed, combo-heavy action sequences, Erine and Enzo will redefine their bond, rescue the land from its villains, and restore their legacy. Luckily, Enzo can call on the Aurion, a powerful collective energy channelled from past ancestors that can unlock devastating fighting abilities and combos to help him beat his foes.

Join the world of Auriona that stands apart from most any other video game universe. The adventure awaits you.  

Enzo is the only remaining heir of the Kori-Odan family, which ruled over the city of Zama for generations. Enzo inherited his battle gears from former Zama’s kings. He can modify its gear’s properties by drawing on ancestral energy, the Aurion, which can also be used to put Enzo into a fierce Aurionic state, allowing him to take on even the deadliest of foes. Luckily for Enzo, his spear, Urithi, also has a power of its own. It is strong and equipped with its own special Aurionite, which is linked to the Legacy of the Kori-Odan.

Erine is the young spouse of Enzo Kori-Odan, and fights alongside him in his quest to restore his legacy. Erine is a support character, she can heal her husband and launch special attack to combo with. Her primary piece of equipment is called "Moyoni Ukuta" which means "The wall of the heart". It is an Aurionic shield that can absorb physical AND magical damage.  
Although Erine cannot enter an Aurionic state, she is equipped with a chest harness and a loin cloth with interchangeable Aurionites. She can mix the Aurionites to modify her abilities.

There are various enemies and bosses in Aurion. Enzo and Erine will face them throughout the adventure, more powerful and skilled as the couple advance in their quest.

  • Aurion's gameplay combines African legends and lore with fast-paced real-time combat.
  • Gather your legacy, unlock devastating strikes to combo with, and mix aurions to create new ones.
  •  Confront enemies as Enzo, with Erine’s assistance and make the best out of the couple in combat.
  • Powerful duels with fascinating and immersive dialogues.
  • Join a spiritual quest that takes our heroes to journey across a wonderful world of African fantasy.

Auriona is a rich and dynamic planet made of six continents. The world’s population regroups six main ethnic groups which are connected by an exciting common history line. Travel around to discover the wealth of the Kiro’o Tales throughout many side quests.

The Aurion is at the same time a mystery and an evidence in Auriona. The Aurion is based on the energetic waves of the world's memory, in other words it channels the energy of the past. With the Aurion, Enzo and other Aurionic people can enter aurionic states to unlock thier fighting potential together with devastating abilities related to ancestors.

Aurionites are objects in which there is the Aurion in the likes of Urithi, Enzo's spear. They allow their possessors to boost their abilities. Originally, the Aurionites constitute rich and complex energy sources used mainly for domestic purposes. But the situation on Auriona saw the Aurion and its Aurionites being used as military weapons. Due to the Aurionites, non-Aurionics people can now build their capacities, and even use the power of the elements.

The Kiro'o Team

We are twenty young Cameroonians working on the project, one the few, if not the only, game developer in Cameroon. We are all graduated in Cameroonian Universities and High schools (no one in the team has studied abroad). We want to show the world our professionalism and stand as models of inspiration for our young brothers and sisters. We are grateful to be assisted by consultants and volunteers. 

Here we are!
Here we are!

Aurion will be released for PC (Windows 7 & 8) on Steam in English and French. If we reach this initial goal, the contributors can rest assured that they will receive their reward packages. However, if we reach over the requested amount, we would love to port the game to home consoles, Mac and Linux. We would also be able to produce retail version of the game and localize it in other languages. In the end, any other extra funds obtained will be injected into the game and allow us to significantly improve it. 

If you can help us reach our second stretch goal, we would have a great special guest to help us enhencing our gameplay mechanics. We are very excited about this, and we can't wait to announce it. Support us to reach the initial goal so that we can finally tell you everything about it!

Risks and challenges

Aurion: Legacy of the Kori-Odan is our first game and we are giving it our best. At the moment we are close to having a fully complete and playable game. We hope to be on time with the game’s completion and deliver a rewarding African RPG experience by Q2 2016. However, due to our location in Cameroon, we often have to deal with power shutdowns and/or slow Internet connections, which interfere greatly with the development of our game.

Our backers and supporters should know that our passion to bring African sensibility and lore to a global gaming audience is strong. Some of us have been working on this game for more than a decade and cherish this project more than anyone. We will not let ourselves, nor our backers and supporters down.
