Furry-themed 'Project Aurora' wins Latvian indie game award
Last month, Project Aurora: Moonrise (review - video preview) – a 3D action/adventure game featuring a sword-swinging fox, Shade – took first place in the BRSD 2 competition, winning Latvian indie developer EanFox/Nauris Abolins 100 lati (~US$185). [tip: ostin/furryne.ws]
The game uses the Game Maker software, and draws from Creative Commons-licensed music on Newgrounds.
Game Maker is used by several other games potentially of furry interest, including:
Delta One – following an anthropomorphic mouse spy, on his final mission
Blackfoot – a weasel-based platformer (preview) that has you dashing through the wilderness to retrieve tasty eggs
The Game Maker community itself is currently embroiled in a controversy over decompilation of its games for Apple's iOS – although some claim the issue is the potential for a competing compiler, complicating the original developers' plans to monetize Game Maker games on various platforms.
