Description

Mysterious and glorious worlds exist parallel to each other - crafted by ancient, high members of the Clan of Keepers. Those elders also possess sacred rings which give them the ultimate power to not only travel to those worlds, but also to create new ones. Legend has it that locked away within those worlds are artifacts that, when combined with the sacred rings, could yield the bearer ultimate power and immortality.

To safeguard the universe, entry into the different worlds has been restricted to only a few select members of the Clan. But, a sinister threat has surfaced and the hidden artifacts must be found before it is too late. You, as a "Keeper Apprentice", are chosen to go on the quest. You will explore four wondrous places: the Ademika Valley - the gateway and world of secrets and sacred rituals; Dragast - a mechanical kingdom with a winter wonderland setting; Na-Tiexu - a land full of magic and astronomy; and then the Island of Unity.

Aura is a 3D adventure game which combines the visual style of Myst-like games with complex puzzles akin to those found in puzzle games like Obsidian and Jewels of the Oracle. Entirely mouse-controlled in first person, the game features puzzles of varying type and difficulty (mechanical, mathematical, logical, musical, etc.), unusual objects to find and use, and non-player character interaction. In addition, an in-game "Hint Journal" records all of the puzzle clues the player encounters for easy reference while playing.
