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 79



As planned, we have completed all the power-ups in the game, as well all the specials. We have now started working on the VFX/SFX on the new weapons, power-ups, specials and other unannounced stuff. Therefore, we decided not to release a new build this week, and we might not release a new one for the next few weeks. We don't want any half-finished content confusing players in the game. We will still be releasing a weekly update of what work we have done and what we have planned.

We have also designed 15+ new levels that we want to put in the game for the final release. We are planning on prototyping them within the next few weeks. As we start completing the new levels, we will start removing some of the old ones.

Small but sweet update this week. Enjoy your weekend everyone!

Update 78



Fixes and Updates for Experimental Branch:
  • Power-up pickups added to all levels


Power-Ups
We have created over half of the power-ups and decided to release a few of them to the wild. There are now power-up pickups on all levels. The levels are optimized for power-up pickups, but that will change once we redesign all the levels.

Once you walk into a power-up, a new power-up will be given to you at random. We want to get some feedback on what you think of the power-ups and if you enjoy them.

Some power-ups are activated automatically, and some require you to press the power-up button. The default is the 'Y' button on an Xbox controller and the 'E' key on the keyboard. This could be different to you if you have changed your controls.

We plan to have all the power-ups coded by the end of next week and then we are going start looking at adding some VFX/SFX to all our new objects.

We will also be starting to design our new levels. Let us know what kind of levels you would like to see in the game. Who knows, we might make that happen.

ENVIRONMENT

Trick your enemies by using the environment and let natural order take place.


MINIGAMES

Tired of killing? Bored of winning all the time? Then try out one of the minigames!


FAMILY FRIENDLY

Key Features

  • Fight in over 10 different dynamic levels.
  • Hone your killing skills in the procedurally-generated singleplayer mode.
