Heroes & Champions Of The Daeva Empire - An Asura Lore Series.



Hi all!

We are excited to announce that we will be commencing a lore series for Asura called as 'Heroes Of The Daeva Empire.'

It is intended to explore the lore or backstory of the various bosses and champions of the Daeva Empire which you might have encountered in the game. Every week on Thursday, we will be releasing a lore. The style will be reminiscent of a book or a scroll. Each lore piece will contain a beautiful illustration.

This series is just a fun endeavor that we are undertaking on the side as a passion project while we are working on the content update. We will be talking more about the content update soon and would love you all to be a part of the development and design for the same.

We hope you enjoy the series. Feel free to share your thoughts and suggestions in the comments below.

Introducing Teleportation And Salvaging Items in Asura!



Hi,

Asura Patch Update 27907 is now LIVE!

Tez-Yatra:
We have implemented the much-requested Teleportation feature and are calling it Tez-Yatra which means Fast Travel.

Asura can place the Teleporter anywhere in the fortress by pressing the F button ( re-bindable). Once the teleporter has been set, Asura can instantly teleport back to it by pressing the same button. Teleporter can't be set if when fighting enemies. If the teleporter has been placed in an undesired position, it can be destroyed by just pressing and holding down the Teleporter button.



The teleporter can be of great help reducing the backtracking drastically. However, you will need to place them strategically to make the most of it.

Salvage Items
Another new feature is the Salvaging of items. In the latest update, Asura can salvage items for 1 Sona. Any and all item can be salvaged included quiver, meat, weapons, armors, etc.



We added this feature because many times, tons of loot would get left behind for eg. quivers would be a complete waste if you are equipped with a magic weapon. Now at least you can Salvage and earn some extra Sona! :)

We have also fixed some issues with UI and font.

Please note that the controls would have been automatically set to default after this update. Apologies for the inconvenience.

We hope that you enjoy the latest update and would love to hear your thoughts and suggestions on the same. You can share it via the comments or get in touch with us on our discord: https://discord.gg/2FQ9g2

Thank you for playing Asura!

About This Game

Asura is an indie, top-down, Hack 'n' Slash game set in a fantasy world inspired by the richness of Indian mythology. It features heavy rogue-like elements and a unique procedural skill tree which changes on every play-through.



Reincarnated as a demon, use your new-found powers and hatred to invade the 'Pancha Dvora'- the five fortresses of the Daeva empire. Embark on a journey to exact your vengeance against Hasirama - The God-King, Maharaja, and Slayer of Innocents.

Asura is inspired by rogue-like genre and is brutally difficult but FAIR…

Note: Asura is best experienced with a controller!



Procedural Skill tree:
Craft your Demon using a Skill tree which changes every time you die.

Absorb or Scavenge:
Asura can either Absorb enemies for experience points or Scavenge their corpse for loot.

Unique Combat system:
Engage the enemies with a variety of Melee, Range, and Magic weapons. Melee attacks will deal reduced damage to range enemies, Magic enemies will resist spells, and the Stamina system will always require you to strategies and adapt during battle.

Unique Loot:
Every item in Asura is unique by itself. Slash your enemies with Claw weapon or batter them with a Mighty Hammer. Shoot your enemies with your bow or ignite them with your Magic weapon. There are tons of loot to be discovered in Asura which synergies with your skills.

Brutal Mechanics:
When you get burnt, a random equipment will get destroyed from your inventory. When the enemies or traps poison you, you can't heal. When your health is low, it does not regenerate automatically. When you die, you don't get to save your progress.

Perma-Death: Inspired by Rogue-like genre, on death you lose all progress.

Unique Weapons & Armour

Enemies Inspired by Indian myths
Battle hordes of enemies, each with their unique characteristics and abilities, inspired from Indian Mythos!

Indian Inspired Lore
