AURA is an abstract, music-based twin-stick shooter with an emphasis on exploration.

Take control of a ship as you explore different areas, seeking out nodes that contain the fuel you need to get your mothership home.

Each node is tied to a part in the music being played, and as you gather more nodes, you will be constructing a full song, culminating in a dramatic final encounter with the guardians of each world.

AURA was made as a project by Patrick Trinh + Lun Cao as part of the UC Santa Cruz MS program for Games and Playable Media 2015.

  • Travel through 4 levels, each with its own musical piece specifically written for it by musician Space Town
  • Explore world with twin-stick shooter controls
  • Experience each piece of music in a different way based on which path you choose in each level
