A downloadable Aurora for Windows




Aurora is a vertical slice demo developed by Fas3 Studios as part of their end of degree project. The intention was creating a game with all it's systems so that it could be expanded in the future. At the same time, we decided to investigate on different ways of approaching combat inside hack n slash games, creating what we call Free Angle Combat System was the combat system used in our game.




Free Angle Combat System (FACS): Will allow you to choose the direction, and timing of your attacks so you can find your own combate tempo. It'll help you reach the enemies weak points for MAXIMUM DAMAGE.

Climbing system: The basic climbing system allows for a better exploration dynamic, which allows a more platformer like exploring.

STATUS                ------------------------------------ PAUSED.


Development is currently paused as we work on other projects. We aim to show the main mechanics this game would have in a short demo. We had planned a boss fight and further exploration although sadly we couldn't meet the deadline for it, although we might come back to finish it in the future.

We hope you enjoyed it, that your day wasn't ruined by any bug ruining your experience, and we'd love to hear any feedback from it, constructive criticism helps us to make our games better.
