Gameplay[edit]

Aporia: Beyond the Valley is an adventure puzzle game seen from a 1st person perspective. It has an emphasis on exploration and adventure. The player is tasked to complete the game by exploring a world filled with strange nature, ancient technology and puzzle elements.[1]

Plot[edit]

You awake after hundreds of years of sleep in the world of Ez’rat Qin - once a mighty civilisation, now a crumbled ruin. You roam the abandoned lands with no memory of your past. Your goal in the game is to investigate the world, discover your own identity and find out what happened to the world.

The world and story is experienced through paintings without text or dialogue with plenty of ambiguity, leaving you to devise your own interpretations.[2]

Development[edit]

Aporia: Beyond the Valley is created using CryEngine. Initial development started as a student project at Aalborg University Copenhagen, Denmark.

In late 2015 the team joined the production and video game company Investigate North and development speed of the game ramped up.
