Welcome to my alpha gameplay footage of Aerannis! This seems to be the first gameplay footage of Aerannis available on YouTube, so hope you all enjoy!

For those unfamiliar with the game, Aerannis takes place in the fictional feminist dystopia of Plovdiv. Founded in 2XXX, Plovdiv serves as the last refuge of humanity, after an apocalyptic event wipes out the entire population. However, Plovdiv is a transgender-exclusive radical feminist dystopia in nature, and strongly discriminates against transgender women.

Throughout the game, the player takes on the role of Ceyda Farhi - a transgender woman and assassin, who makes a living from paycheck to paycheck. She struggles against the discriminatory policies of the city's transgender-exclusionary ideology, and lives on the fringe of Plovdiv's society.

Aerannis is a Metroidvania - gameplay consists of 2D side-scrolling action and linear levels with multiple gameplay styles. Gameplay is quite fun so far - in the video above, I demo the first ~23 minutes of the current backer demo for everyone to check out! If you enjoy, feel free to comment and share.


Developed by ektomarch, Aerannis was successfully funded on Kickstarter back in November 2014. Since then, mid-tier backers have been receiving regular updates of the Alpha version of Aerannis. Essentially, we demo the game ahead of time and give feedback about the current build.

I must admit, the current build is incredible! I'm having a lot of fun playing so far.


Listed below is the link for the public alpha demo of Aerannis, Aerannis-win12.zip . Check it out. Please note, this demo build is different from the backer version, so there will be some differences: http://ff.itch.io/aerannis-agdg-demo

Also, make sure to check out my original write-up on the Aerannis Kickstarter! This was my original article for my LGBT + Gender column - http://www.gamemoir.com/lgbt-gender/k...

Anyway, hope you enjoy this Aerannis gameplay footage! Look out for an Aerannis let's play down the road!
