Akatori Game Updates: In this interesting metroidvania/slasher platformer, assist young Mako in saving the planet while smoothly transitioning between two parallel dimensions! Explore magical and mysterious places, make friends and allies, and try not to let the ancient God awaken!
A slice of footage for the upcoming metroidvania Akatori appeared on the Guerrilla Collective livestream today, showing off the game’s first boss. Above you’ll find a copy of the trailer.
Without giving too much thought to whether or not I genuinely want to play a new 2Dplatformer, I like the way Akatori looks. The flat layers and color palette remind me of Neo Geo arcade games like Samurai Shodown and Metal Slug, which I consider to be the pinnacle of sprite-art (albeit Akatori isn’t quite as pixely).
Mako, the protagonist of Akatori, has the capacity to switch between parallel universes—it appears that the modern-day scenes, in contrast to the past, are one of those dimensions.
“Explore worlds filled of magic and mystery, make friends and allies, and try not to awaken the ancient God,” the Steam page asks. Akatori is listed on Steam with a TBA release date, which is a little odd, but the newest news is that it’s searching for more funding. This summer, the creators will launch a Kickstarter campaign.
