Teleporting Platformer Aaru’s Awakening Coming to PS3, PS4
Originally created as a school project, Aaru’s Awakening is a teleportation themed platformer and will be coming to PS3 and PS4 this summer. Icelandic developer Lumenox is also releasing the game simultaneously on both platforms.
Aaru’s Awakening tells the tale of Aaru as he explores the world of Lumenox to defeat an evil being. The game is a hand drawn 2D platformer that uses a teleporting and charging ability. These abilities are mapped to the trigger and shoulder buttons, though you can set up the control scheme to your personal liking.
When teleporting, Aaru will shoot his soul out of his body and will then teleport to the desired destination. The charging ability was added to force players into making split-second decisions, and can be used as a double jump, add more time in the air, and break through certain walls.
Lumenox says that their aim with Aaru’s Awakening was “always to do something new, something original, and something intuitive.”
No price has been announced at this time and it is unclear if the game will support cross-buy.
