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.”

Release Date Announcement




Release Date
The game will be leaving Early Access on March 28!! That is just over five weeks away. This update of the game is feature-complete, and we will release a smaller update on the release day to fix any issues that might have popped up and tweak the gameplay.


Fixes and Updates:
  • Fixed issue where match stats would not reset when starting a new match
  • Updated menu and level music
  • Removed online modes
  • Implemented new leaderboards
  • Implemented achievements (in-game and Steam)
  • Steam trading cards
  • Updated game name


New Name
We have been planning to update the name of the game for a long time, as we found the 'Mad World' part of the name did not make much sense or explains what the game is. So after months of research and thinking of new names, we have decided to go with 'Akuto: Showdown'.

Same game, new name.

January Update



So let's get the bad news out of the way: there will be no online mode in Akuto: Mad World. Yes, we said we would try to implement it and we did try. Our first attempt didn't meet our standards, and our second attempt for online mode is currently in mid-development but most likely won't be finished. So what happened?

Well at the end of 2018, we started going through how much we have already spent on the game and how much we are expecting to make in sales. By our calculations, it will be very unlikely that we will ever make a profit from this game. This is because the development budget for the game had to be doubled halfway in development.

We initially planned to release the game in Q4 2017 or Q1 2018, but due to circumstances out of our control, we had to push back the release date. Because of that, we decided to scrap a prototype we were working on at that time and use the budget of that prototype for Akuto's development throughout 2018.

We are now increasingly close to running out of money for this project, and we will definitely not be able to complete the development of online mode for Akuto with our remaining budget. Now, instead of releasing a half-working online mode, we are going to use the remaining of the budget to complete the remaining features of the game (leaderboards, achievements, trading cards, etc.) and polish the game.

We apologize to anyone who was looking forward to the online mode. Even though we initially did not plan for online mode, we did want it in the game as we continued to develop the game.

We know this is not much, but the one good news from all of this is that the game will be out much sooner than we planned.
