Last chance to get in on the Auro Kickstarter from @dinofarmgames, a gorgeous roguelike
Auro is a tactical strategy game/roguelike that is being made by Dinofarm Games for the Windows, iOS, Android, OSX, and Linux (ie, everything). I always enjoy a good roguelike (and, actually, enjoyed 100 Rogues, Dinofarm’s previous effort), but they are not usually known for their graphics (with many – if not the majority – simply using ASCII characters in lieu of graphics). Auro looks to have a pretty neat system that lets you select powers from different elements (so, you might choose fire to try and play offensively) to try and help you get as far as possible. The game is estimated to be released in December, 2012, but you can go ahead and pledge to the Kickstarter to reserve your copy for $7, if that is something you might like to do. Definitely something roguelike fans should take a look at. The Kickstarter ends on June 29 at 2:19 PM (ET), so there’s not a whole lot of time left on this one.
