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.”

Update 37 – Solo Dolo

Fixes and Updates:
  • Characters now wear a cape when playing team-based games, which show their team color
  • Leaderboard created to show highest score in a single game of singleplayer
  • Leaderboard created to show fastest completion time in singleplayer
  • Stats menu updated to include singleplayer stats
  • 'Sandbox' level is now different during 'Survival' game mode
  • Korean translations updated
  • New game mode (Singleplayer)

'Singleplayer' game mode
Complete the 8 procedural-generated levels as fast as possible. Something simple to pass the time when you play by yourself.

In Other News
First thing first, we want to thank everyone for everyone who has patiently waited whilst we worked on the singleplayer game mode. We hope you will enjoy what we have created and look forward to seeing your scores and times on the leaderboards.

Now, with singleplayer mode completed, we have one major milestone left to complete, which is the level editor. We are planning to have this completed before the end of October. The level editor will have Steam workshop support that will allow you to share your levels with other players in the community.

We are also going to start updating the game bi-weekly instead of weekly. This will allow us to focus more on the game before we release a new build.

Now, let's talk about the big feature everyone wants in the game: online! We have actually been researching and testing ideas for online since around April. All this research and testing was one reason why the singleplayer game mode took so long to get finished. We have settled on how we want to do online and are spending some of our time working on getting a prototype version ready. We hope to have a test version of online ready in September, and then we will go from there. Remember, this does not mean online will be in the final release of the game. We are still testing it and seeing if the gameplay will hold up.

We are also holding an eSports tournament in September in Busan (South Korea). The tournament will be a part of BIC Fest 2017. We will have more details regarding this in our next update.

Last thing, we have decided to increase the price of our game to its final release price, which is going to be $10.99. The release date for the game is going to be sometime in Q4 2017. We will be increasing the price in two weeks (August 25), so go tell your friends to buy the game now whilst it is cheap!

For our final release, we will be decreasing the multiplayer maps to 10, keeping only the ones that meet our standards and remove the ones that do not meet our standards or we used for testing (e.g. 'Sandbox' level).
