Aaru's Awakening is a 2D action platformer scheduled to be released Q4 2013 for the PC and Mac. You are the champion of Dawn, Aaru. Complete missions and explore the world of Lumenox using Aaru's highly mobile skills, teleportation and charging. The balance between Dawn, Day, Dusk and Night is being destroyed by Night. As a last hope Dawn sends out his champion, Aaru, to travel all the way to Night’s domain and restore balance. Can you save the world of Lumenox?

Post news Report RSS Finally a Real Playable Demo!

We finally released a demo that is a real representation of the final version, with a tutorial that allows players to get in control of the “difficult-to-master” mechanics in the game.

Posted by on




Some of our oldest followers might remember the old Alpha build demo, that surfaced the web more than a year ago. The demo was more a proof of a concept than a representation of the game - and so we decided to pull it offline a few months back. We have however noticed in the midst of acknowledgements of our art style that people are left wondering about the gameplay. Some have even suggested that we’re reluctant to allow players to try the game out because it doesn’t play good - only looks the part.

This encouraged us to finally release a demo that was a real representation of the final version, with a tutorial that allows players to get control of the “difficult-to-master” mechanics in the game. We’re hopeful that people will be pleased with what we made and that the demo will raise Aaru’s Awakening some awareness.

The Demo is available on our Official Website, or you can just click here for a direct download.

Not sure if your server is slow or if many people are downloading at the same time... but, its really really slow.

I tried downloading again now and it worked fine, has it improved for you ? Also - the demo is currently only working on Windows, we'll have the Mac version out on Monday and I'll have to get back to you regarding a Linux version.

It finished yesterday and extracted just fine. I played the whole demo. Very fun and interesting.
I like the teleportation and physics of the light-ball.
Cool game!

Great! Glad you like it. The final version will have a lot of stuff in it that will make it much better though :)
