AuraLab lunches IndieGoGo campaign for Karma. Incarnation 1
AuraLab has announced the launch of their IndieGoGo campaign for their shadowy new adventure game, Karma. Incarnation 1. Here's the trailer, to give you an idea about what kind of game it is:
Looks awfully psychadelic, huh? That bit at the end where you get swallowed and then, um, released is a fine example of the unique experiences Karma has to offer.
Interestingly, the game will feature no text dialogue whatsoever. AuraLab promises a mixture of humor and puzzle-solving. There will be also be more than one way to progress through quests, which is a rare thing in the world of adventure games. Players will have the option of being either good or evil, with the principles of karma laced into the storytelling.
Andrey Sharapov, CEO of AuraLabs, had this to say about the project: "We have finished pre-production of Karma and have completed a huge percentage of development already, we've a lot of final conceptual art done and working prototype but we still have an incredible amount of work to do - animations, programming and testing. Being a small indie studio we would like to stay independent and as such we're not funded by a publisher or investor, so we're looking to crowdfunding to help support the development!"
AuraLabs is also donating part of the revenue from game sales to the wildlife rescue fund WWF, in order to fund research and help save endangered species.
They have 40 days left to find funding.
