Aurion: Legacy of the Kori-Odan looks and sounds like it might be a pretty fun game, and the developers have confirmed a Linux version is currently in-progress.

The developer said this on the Steam forum:
QuoteHello @mossman93!! yeah the work of porting Aurion on Mac and Linux is on progress. Stay tuned. We'll post an annonce when this work will end!


I do love a good RPG, and this has certainly caught my interest! The setting is certainly different than a lot of RPG games that I've seen in recent times.

About the game (From Steam)
Aurion is an epic action RPG set in a wonderful African Fantasy world with a unique, open and dynamic fighting gameplay.

Enzo Kori-Odan, the prince of Zama is a victim of a coup d'etat orchestrated by his brother in-law on the day of his coronation and wedding with Erine Evou. The royal couple is then exiled and decides to go around the world in search of allies. They will especially have to reunite Enzo’s warring legacy in order to retrieve their throne.

Beyond retrieving their position, the dethroned Royal couple will precisely discover the geopolitical and existential dilemmas attached to their functions of King and Queen.

Great news. I'm definitely interested in playing a game steeped in African mythology, a setting barely touched by gaming until now. I believe it's being made by an African studio, which might be a first.

Nice graphics...

I'm interested, hopefully they consider making a DRM free version down the road.
PublicNuisance 19 Apr, 2016
So in response to my inquiry about whether they were planning a DRM free version their response was:

"Hello dear pirates,

We have a lot of respect for the hacker community (yeah we are serious), but if you can just wait that we get at least 250k copies sold before killing the DRM it will be cool for us to make another games.

So why not help us to spread the word by RT and fav all we says on our twitter on the game and we may see what we can do for some free keys maybe."


I'm sure they didn't mean to call those who prefer DRM free games pirates and hackers but they did a poor job of wording it. My response was classy in my eyes.

I actually do not care about DRM free games but DRM have never stopped hackers. Only way I know how to stop hackers from hacking your game is to make game witch no one wants :D

The game is already available on pirate sites which I pointed out to them. Their mighty DRM failed them. Shocking, I know.

I actually do not know why no one learns that DRM never boosts sales . If you make pain in the ass DRM then people who usually do not care about DRM like me start to care and do not by the game and hackers still cracks it. If you make low DRM then people like you who care about DRM will not by the game and they still loses money and hackers still will hack the game :O. Either way they will not get those extra sales so why bother and waste time and money on something so useless.

Can you give link to your post about DRM? :D

My post was an email tot hem. The message was:

"To Whom It May Concern,

I have never pirated a PC game ever, seriously. I have purchased 48 games and counting in 2016 alone (I keep a spreadsheet of my purchases, yeah I'm a weird guy), all DRM free. I am also not a hacker. I build and repair computers but when it comes to hacking the closest I get is I like to watch Swordfish. I'm simply a guy who likes to feel like he actually owns what he purchased. If I buy a game on Steam and their login server is down that day I can't download my game. If they decide to ban my account, I can't download my game. That isn't ownership to me, it's a rental agreement. I agree to give over money and they agree to let me have access to the game when they feel like it.

Just last week I tried to install Drakensang: A Dark Eye, a game I had purchased in 2008 that was protected by DRM. Apparently I have installed it more than 3 times in the last 8 years so I'm no longer allowed to install it according to their DRM message. The company who made it is out of business. That doesn't seem fair to me. I still have the digital receipt for it in my email but I have nobody to complain to. If I had a DRM free option for it I would be still able to install it and enjoy it.

I am sure you didn't mean to offend me and while my response may come across as hostile it isn't meant to be. I'm still willing to purchase a copy of your game if and when you make a DRM free version. I simply want to let you know that not all people who request DRM free are out to steal your game, some of us just despise DRM and love freedom.

Also I feel you should know your game is already available on torrent sites. That DRM that is supposed to protect it must have already been cracked by one of those hackers.

https://kat.cr/aurion-legacy-of-the-kori-odan-plaza-t12432889.html

I'm not going to download it. I just wanted to show that DRM is not very effective in most cases but you probably already knew that. I sincerely hope you make those 250k copies sold and will await it. "


I think I kept it classy.
