An adventure “explore by bird” game from Daedalic Entertainment and Forgotten Key, AER is coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC in September 2016.
Set in a freely explorable world of floating islands, AER stars Auk, a girl who can transform into a bird. On a journey through the Land of Gods, she visits nomads and spirits, and heads down into ruins from a lost civilization.
The description adds:
The gods of old are forgotten, lost in the events that shattered the world, leaving only fragments of islands in the sky. On the journey, the player will encounter situations that have not been experienced in generations, and every step leads closer towards the end of the world.
AER is developed with a focus on strong aesthetics and free exploration gameplay, with all systems building towards that goal: The player is free to explore the world, complete objectives and progress in the order he wants to. All with a seamless, free flight mechanics, and with something new around almost every corner.
- The player can jump off any cliff and fly without restrictions. Seamless transitions between human and bird.
- A large, fully designed world that is free to explore, and filled with secrets to discover.
- A pilgrimage and mysteries, puzzles and temples.
- High focus on atmosphere and aesthetics with a vibrant surreal low-poly art style.
If you’re headed to PAX East, AER will be playable.
