Chashu Entertainment today announced that Sands of Aura will arrive on Steam Early Access in 2021.

Sands of Aura features Unreal 4 graphics, including eye-opening level design, creature modeling, and particle effects. The developer promises to deliver “the brutal difficulty of Souls-like games” along with “rewarding dungeon crawling, addictive loot progression, and hardcore real-time combat.”

Sands of Aura is a dream project for us,” says Eric Zheng, co-founder of Chashu Entertainment. The studio was founded in 2015 and is based out of Dallas, Texas.

“We’re holding nothing back. Every second of every minute is being poured into development as if the game were a living thing. Of course, it helps that basically everyone in the studio is immensely talented and a serious fan of both Diablo and the Dark Souls franchise,” Zheng adds.

The Story

A powerful spell has covered Talamhel in a sea of sand. From the depths of the dying world to the tallest spires of crumbled civilizations, those who have endured now live in the waning memories of a once-lush, bountiful realm.

Players will brave the sea of shifting sands to reach new islands. Explore the ruins of great empires and discover the entrenched monstrosities that lay within. Talamhel is filled with endless hordes of the depraved.

My Take

Sands of Aura definitely looks promising so far. I’m looking forward to trying it out when it hits Steam Early Access next year.
