An amazing mix of RPG, strategy, simulation, sandbox and survival game. Aurora Dusk looks like many other games, but instead of being alone, you live in a community. You can play one or more villagers and evolve from the Wood Age to the Steam Age.

End of the Early Access period

The Early Access ends today. I consider that this game offers almost everything a complete game has to offer.
Aurora Dusk is still imperfect. There are still bugs and other problems in the game. The end of the Early Access does not mean the end of the game development. It will get other updates in the future.

The Early Access lasted almost 3 years. During this period, the game was updated with many major additions:
- the multiplayer mode.
- a new campaign adventure.
- the ability to control multiple characters.
- an editor of artificial intelligences.
- the city centres.
- siege weapons.
- cows ^^.
- statistics.
- perks.
- 50 new items.
And many more.
