Download The Aurora Wager

The Aurora Wager is a game created for the 7 Day Rogue Like event.


The game is about you (Jebe), your buddy Frits, your nemesis Frederik, and your wager to see who can make it to the North Pole first! By hot air balloon, of course. You will have to master navigating the airways, and explore the world to find the means to venture ever further.

  • Timetaken157

    I have windos 7 and i walk slowly :(

  • LongshotMerchant

    I guess my computer is just rubbish but when I try to fly, it seems I am too heavy (no box’s on at all!) but when I hop off, it floats off never to be seen again. Also, I always have my cursor and the circle pointer on screen, this seems to cause my camera to continue spinning around uncontrollably at times. Any fixes for these? (I have V4 on Windows 7 64bit)

  • Wreckager99

    I have to admit This game is bloody amazing, and ive only just started
    I would like to see a use for the crates though, Other than weighing down your balloon. like Storing food or compasses or extra equipment

    We paid but received nothing. :-(

      Hi Liz, thank you so much for your donation!

      The Aurora Wager are currently available for free, and you can download it right from this page. See the “Download V4″ section for windows and mac versions.

      The donation option is there to support further development of the game, and to get access to any further releases in the event we no longer release the game for free.

      If you thought you’d get a new or full version of The Aurora Wager for the donation right this moment, then that is our fault entirely. We’re currently redesigning the website to make this much clearer, but for now it is a bit of a mess.

      If you’re ok with this agreement, that’s fantastic! If you’d rather get your money back and wait for new releases, that’s ok too. Let me know!

  • kevin

    so are there people still working on this game? Or has it fully stopped
