A Look at Aurion: The 2D African Fantasy Action Game from Cameroon

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.

With only $100 Madiba Olivier, a game developer, set out to create a video game that featured an African hero. Despite the challenges of raising money, Madiba was able to complete a successful Kickstarter campaign that raised over $50,000 for development.  In an interview with CNN Olivier said, “We had difficulty finding funds and showing investors that we are not a scam, We had people telling us, you are just another African scam on the internet. That was very humiliating for me.”

In the game, you will take the role of Enzo Kori-Odan, the Prince of Zama who suffers a coup d’état from his brother in-law on the day of his coronation and marriage with Erine Evou. Through thrilling execution, 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 ancestors that can unlock devastating fighting abilities and combos to help him beat his foes.
