Look What We Found: Aaru’s Awakening
One of the most amazing things about games is that there are a thousand different things about them that can capture players’ imaginations, but it takes playing the games for these things to be fully realized. But the art direction of a game is one aspect that can capture anyone’s imagination, even non-players.
Games featuring hand-drawn backgrounds and animations are nothing new, but the aesthetic is so unique that it’s notable in every instance. Aaru’s Awakening is a game currently being made by Lumenox Games, and features such an aforementioned hand-drawn style. Guiding the beast known as Aaru, the player will traverse the worlds of Dawn, Day, Dusk, and Night to defeat a diety who has taken control of the world.
