Video Game / Zera: Myths Awaken

Go To

Spyro: Myths Awaken was a Spyro the Dragon Fan Game intended to act as a sequel to Spyro: Year of the Dragon. It was designed from the ground-up using PlayStation-style graphics and was well into development, however a Cease-and-Desist order in September 2018 led to the project being abandoned.

The devs were not deterred and opted to continue the project with several tweaks. This is where Zera: Myths Awaken comes in.

Zera: Myths Awaken is a Spyro-inspired 3D platformer starring an axolotl/bat hybrid named Zera. Elements have been changed, such as gems becoming relics and the Guidebook becoming the Totem, but the Spyro influence is still clearly there.

Zera: Myths Awaken provides examples of:

  • Mix-and-Match Critters: According to official art and gameplay footage, Zera is an axolotl/bat hybrid inspired Cartoon Creature. She has the general look of an axolotl but has wings and ears similar to a bat's.
  • Retraux: The demo uses low-poly, PlayStation-style graphics despite being developed in the late 2010s.
