We have another platformer coming to PS4 and PS3 soon. Aaru’s Awakening is being developed by “Lumenox ehf,” a developer based out of Iceland. After winning the Icelandic Gaming Industry Game Creator competition, the developers knew they had something special. They took the winnings from the competition and used it to create their small company.
Aaru’s Awakening main in game mechanic is based off the teleportation system in Unreal tournament. The developers want gamers to experience something unique, so the entire game will be completely hand drawn. After viewing the video below, I was immediately reminded of Child of the Light. The similarities in art style are evident. Aaru’s Awakening will release on PS3 and PS4 this summer. Stay tuned for more information.
