Gameplay-wise, Adventure in Aellion is an action-oriented open-world fantasy RPG. The game predominantly revolves around drop-in drop-out co-op. Luke O’Donoghue, director of The Game Production Company, says he has always wondered about the lack of co-op adventure games where friends can join in the action ad hoc. As such, players will discover the world of Adventure in Aellion “by discovering on [their] own or working with friends”.
The Game Production Company is promising plenty to see in Aellion. Each area conceals numerous hidden passageways, mysteries, and ancient secrets to discover. You will, of course, also have to contend with the monsters protecting said secrets. To help you, you’ll have access to a horse, your buddies, and “multitudes of tools and weapons”, according to the official Steam page.
If you want to go hands-on with Adventure in Aellion, you can do so at this year’s EGX London. The Game Production Company will have a playable demo of the game at their booth between October 17th and October 20th. You can also follow the game’s official Twitter and Discord channels. Adventure in Aellion will launch for PC via Steam on February 28th next year.
