Chasing Aurora – 2D aerial action game by Broken Rules

Chasing Aurora is a wonderful new 2D aerial action game created by Broken Rules for the Nintendo Wii U platform. It is a multiplayer game that allows up to 5 people to cooperate or compete against each other. It features birds, rocks, mountains, icicles, fire, rockslides and few other mysterious gameplay elements.

The game started out as a bird-flying racing game, prototyped in late 2010. By spring 2011, Broken Rules managed to receive public funding from the city of Vienna for developing a three-part series of games set in the Alps. Soon afterwards, a first multi-player prototype based on the children’s game of “tag” was implemented. The multi-player mode was supplemented by a single player campaign, and racing made place for exploration and brawling.

The game was developed with Ginkgo, Broken Rules’ in-house game engine (watch the video below). It will be available in the Nintendo eShop for $14.99 on launch day.
