Asura is a hack 'n' slash game and as such we have put great effort to make the combat system as unique and intersting as possible. Let us give you a...


Well may i ask if you got some of your inspiration from my game Runic Rampage? - just curious! :)

Well, this is first time we are hearing about your game and i checked out the gameplay video, except for the camera angle i dont think so anything is alike.

I would say Asura is inspired by games legend of zelda: a link between past and other rogue-likes like spelunky and binding of isaac. We have been in development for almost a year now.

Hope this answered your question and thanks for dropping by.

No problem :D - i just read: collecting runes (check), combos (check), procedural generated levels (check), same generation principle (double check). Only want to add: You should abandon the procedural generation - instead craft challenging fortresses with enemies setup by hand. The procedural approach has too much disadvantages... and trust me i am in year 3 of development now and i know what i am speaking about. ;) Looking forward for you game and will sign up as alpha tester ;)

You cant collect runes per say, but you unlock them as you play more of the game. Its kind of difficult to explain but the game has a unique skill system where it is again procedurally generated!

The levels are kind of rooms and is inspired by Zelda, the Nes version if you remember them.

You will get a better understanding of how everything works once you check out the development build. Glad to hear that you are interested in alpha testing!

Will definitely send you a build once we have a one ready.

Thanks again! :)

So this is basically an Indian remake of Diablo?

Although we play a lot of Diablo and are big blizzard fans, nope its does not play like diablo.

Its more like a Hack n slash Rogue-like game which 4 people are making from India, inspired by Zelda and other rogue-likes like Binding of isaac, Spelunky etc etc.

Thanks for dropping by.

Very nice and clever response.
Asura is right-up-my-alley for Hack-n-Slash games.
I love the look and the simple gameplay mechanics.
Great job on the progress so far

It definitely looks good. I love the textures and the lighting. I think you should also include the gameplay teaser you guys shared on twitter, that was awesome to look at. Tracked!

Thanks Zillvr, I would have included the teaser but the gameplay has completely changed so its better if instead reveal the new teaser which we are cooking up! Earlier the game was arena based but now it has turned into a rogue-like.

Thanks again for dropping by and stay tuned for more updates :)
