Developer Aurogon Shanghai announced that Afterimage, its hand-drawn 2D animated action adventure, has been 100% funded on Kickstarter and a free playable demo is available on Steam.
Afterimage’s Kickstarter campaign surpassed its original funding goal in just 40 hours and is 260% funded in one week with over 1,100 backers. As the Kickstarter campaign ends on April 21, new stretch goals will continue to be revealed, adding more content and features to the project to assure the Kickstarter community that Afterimage will reach its full potential when it arrives on PC and consoles this winter.
Inspired by legendary Metroidvania games like Castlevania: Symphony Of The Night and Ori and the Blind Forest, Afterimage is set in the imaginative world of Engardin. Once a glorious realm of magical life and fantastic beasts, the land has been ravaged by the madness of human ambition and war.
An ominous event has devastated the land, corrupting the souls and behavior of native species and humans alike.
Embark on a journey as Renee, a girl who lost her memory during the Great Cataclysm, as she retraces her steps to discover memories of the past. Explore expansive, interconnected areas, traverse complex platforming puzzles, and encounter hilarious characters that can help or hinder Renee on her journey.
Discover a hauntingly beautiful yet dangerous world using Renee’s graceful weapon attacks and spells to defeat menacing and strange enemies.
As Renee regains her lost memories and ventures deeper into this hauntingly beautiful, hand-drawn world, she learns new weapons, abilities, and spells. She adjusts the talent tree to improve Renee’s attributes, she uses passive skills to improve combat techniques, and she switches weapons on the fly during challenging boss fights. She collects tons of loot and keep an eye out for lost recipes. Give them to wandering cooks and they’ll cook up delicious dishes with unique upgrades!
