Developer Cognitive Forge has announced that they’ll be bringing the roguelite platformer game Aura of Worlds to the Nintendo Switch in Q2 of 2024. Currently available on Steam in Early Access, this will be the full 1.0 launch of the game. Check out the announcement trailer above, and stay tuned as we wait to hear about a firm release date.

Aura of Worlds demands sharp wit and precise reflexes in a game where improvisation and knowledge surpass stats. Should you just loot the cursed treasure chest (like it goads you to) or wield it as a weapon? Blink, bounce, grapple or fly across lava pits or just blow them up in a glorious spray of embers? In this game, crazy often works to your advantage.

Created by Cognitive Forge – a small team based in Victoria, Australia – and featuring pixel-perfect visuals and an earworm-worthy chiptune soundtrack, Aura of Worlds will have you make your way through ever-changing death labyrinths – turning adversity into advantage. Escape flooding passages, outrun toxic pollen, and face off against gargantuan bosses. Do you go on defense with a spear and energy shield … or swing into the fray with a boomerang, grappling hook, and a grin?

Key Features:

  • Challenging Traps, Many Solutions: Throw an enemy into a laser field, blink through it – or blow up the conduit; put your creativity to the test!
  • Endless Levels: With 100+ unique enemies and traps and over 12 randomized level themes, you can navigate mine-filled tidal corridors, rising lava, carnivorous plants, and more.
  • One Object, Endless Possibilities: With multi-use objects, a humble lantern can be grabbed, carried for light, shot or thrown as a Molotov cocktail.
  • Wide Array of Skills: Grab, throw, hack, light, parkour, terraform, and warp time itself!
  • Gorgeous Pixel Art: Feast your eyes on stunning hand-crafted visuals from the talented Rex Smeal, Han Cheon, Danika Clark, Lauren Temos (T-Dog-eXtreme), Jessica T., and August Cartland.
  • Immersive Sound: Experience a memorable score and sound effects from the prolific Mat Dwyer and Amanda J. Lim.
