What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We are releasing Akuto: Mad World through Steam Early Access to build a community that will be involved in the development of the game. We want the community to inform us what currently is working, what needs to be changed/fixed, and what features we should prioritize.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We have not set a release date for the full version of Akuto: Mad World. We are hoping to release the full version at the end of 2017. This is not set in stone as the scope of the game could increase because of the feedback from the community, meaning the full version will be released later than planned.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The full game will play similarly to the Early Access version but with all the features implemented. This includes versus game modes, single-player mode, level editor, and much more.

A full list of the features we plan to have in the game can be seen here.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current Early Access version of the game is a local multiplayer game that supports 1-4 players. It has three completed levels, two different weapon types, and several different game modes.

We will be releasing 1 update at minimum every month, but most likely more. Each update will add new features to the game.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“Yes, the price of Akuto: Mad World will increase as we complete milestones (features).

We are also going to NOT put the game on sale or discount any time during Early Access.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We want the Early Access community to be part of the development of the game. We will be listening to them on what features to prioritize, what content needs to be fixed, and if any modifications need to be made to make the game as good as it can be.”

In Other News
In less than two weeks, we will be travelling to San Francisco to show Akuto: Mad World at GDC (Game Developers Conference). This is the biggest game developers conference in the world and we will be showing the game as part of Microsoft's Xbox Lobby Lounge. If you were thinking if this means Akuto: Mad World will be coming to Xbox One, then you are 100% correct. We will be releasing for Xbox One after the game leave Early Access on Steam, which should be end of this year. Currently we are aiming to have our final release on December 1, which will be our one-year anniversary since Early Access release.

If any of you are game developers or are coming to GDC, come say hi to us and play our latest (and unreleased) build on Xbox One.

Just with previous events/festivals, this does mean that the update that comes out on GDC week (Update 14) will be a bit smaller than our usual updates.

To get you excited for next update, we can announce that we are releasing 'Mutators' for Versus and Practice game modes next week. We will have more details regarding this next week.

And remember, if you like the game, recommend it to your friends or leave us a positive review.

Update 11

Fixes and Updates:
  • Updated load percentage so that it does not show any decimal points
  • Updated GUI of the whole game
  • Optimized lighting

In Other News
We have found some issues with the GUI, which we are planning to fix in next week's build. These are mainly to do with the pause and game-over menus being too bright and not being able to see what button is selected.

You will also have noticed that we have updated the price to $5.99 USD on Steam and Humble stores.

In more positive news, we got nominated for 'Best Multiplayer Game' at Casual Connect Europe. Sadly, we did not win, but it was a great honor just being nominated.
