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 45 - The Blue Pill

Fixes and Updates:
  • First test version of online mode released

Online Mode
It is finally here, the first version of online. Expect bugs, crashes, and stuff not working correctly. This is mainly to see how smooth the gameplay is between national or international players. With this feedback, we can start looking whether to increase or decrease send rates for players or bullets.

We recommend playing the game with friends only at the moment, so that you can communicate over a third-party platform (like our Discord server) whilst playing against each other online. This is because the online mode will crash frequently.

If you are having issues joining a friend, you can try 'Port Forwarding'. We have created a simple guide here that shows you how to do it.

We have removed one move from the online mode only, which is throwing your sword. At the moment, we cannot sync the position and rotation properly with all the clients, so we decided not to implement the throwing sword move. We will look back at this issue in the future, and decide whether to implement it or not.

We are planning to add in some of the offline game modes, weapons, and, of course, bug fixes over the next few weeks to the online version of Akuto: Mad World.

Below are some of the bigger known bugs already in the online version:
  • If any player leaves, the lobby will crash and force everybody to leave
  • Joining a game that is already started will probably crash the game
  • Lobby text is not updated to tell you whether a game has already started or not
  • 'Team Mode' and 'Friendly Fire' currently do nothing to the online match
  • Spawn issues (mainly applies to host only)

If you find any other bug, leave a comment below or mention it in the forums and we will add it to our long to-do list.

As always, if you like the game, leave us a review or recommend the game to your friends.

Update 44 - Sooner or Later

Fixes and Updates:
  • Stats menu updated for online mode
  • Optimized input system

Online Mode
The first test (alpha) version of online was going to be released today but we found some last-minute bugs. Therefore, we decided to hold of the online mode release. We are hoping to have it ready for our next update.

Once we have the first test version of online ready, we will be looking for feedback whether to continue to pursue this or whether to drop it.

As always, if you like the game, leave us a review or recommend the game to your friends.
