Welcome to the official funding support page for Cross of Auria! Before I get into what exactly Cross of Auria (CoA) is, let me tell you a little about myself. I am a recent graduate with a degree in Game Design from Full Sail University. CoA is my first solo writing/gaming/design project. For a long time, I've been writing the script to a game set in a fantasy world based on inspiration from gameplay of the Final Fantasy series mixed with an idea based on the Arrowverse. In my spare time, I stream games as a means to support this and other endeavors. On January 1st of 2018, I released the first installment of CoA, simply titled "Cross of Auria".

The goal for CoA isn't just to be a game or even a series of games - the goal is to create a brand new universe of heroes like you would ordinarily find in comic books. I want this project to extend through my years and through every avenue of media I can touch, especially TV, film, and video games.

Now, onto the heavy detail.

What is Cross of Auria?
Cross of Auria is the first installment of a multimedia superhero universe in the video game medium created with an old school style game engine called RPG Maker MV and is an role-playing game itself with traditional RPG elements. This creation served two purposes. First, to be an example of level and battle design created outside of my university program. Second, to establish a foundation to the much larger universe which is currently untitled in regards to lore-building and example writing. 

Explain the game as it is now.
Right now, CoA is a living project. There is roughly 10 hours of play time and the whole thing is available for $0.99, with no change in cost as more is added. The story begins on the first day of the Scourge, a plague that suppresses the memory of everything it touches, and follows the character Ruby as she awakens in the Veil, a world between worlds. The story of this game is relatively short in order to serve as the background for future projects. A 100% completed file should be taken as canon to the universe.

What is the future for Cross of Auria?
CoA will fully tell the story of Ruby and the events in Revan following the scourge. Once it is finished, I have plans for several other smaller projects that are less RPG in nature and follow more of a TV show or comic book format but are created with the same game engine. This is mainly due to my familiarity with the engine and how I am not an artist. However, once enough funds are raised, I will work with an artist to make the first of the comic book series. 
These will release in episode format and use the autorun function for events. Basically, it will require some player input to progress but it will ultimately be more similar to a comic than a game.
The future titles of this nature will use the naming convention "Cross of Auria: NameHere" and will also be released on Steam.
Example titles:
Cross of Auria: Honor At Sea (Episode I)
Cross of Auria: The Dynast Thief (Episode XIV)
Each title released this way will have roughly 30 minutes to 1 hour of intense story and will follow the events of the previous number of the same title unless otherwise specified

Are there any releases planned that aren't in video game format?
Yes. I am currently working on short-story like pieces. Until funding comes through, no release is currently planned as I am spread out among projects at this time. When I have more information, I will update this section. That being said, I would like to release a collection of short-stories or even a book or two that takes place in this universe.

Anything else?
