So we didn’t have the best of week here. First our computers stopped working correctly, and after spending a day trying to fix it, we had to give up and re-install Windows again. It took us a whole day to re-install Windows and all the software we need to continue developing the game.
Now before we had this disruption, we were working on the VFX of the weapons. We were also working on making the player stand out more during gameplay, as we noticed that was quite a big issue with numerous players. We started testing out by adding an outline to all the living players in the game. We was also testing out a cel shading art style, just to see how the game would look like. We didn’t have much time to test this, since that was when our computers crashed.
So what do you think of the cel-shaded art style? Do you think we should keep it and work on it further, or stick to our original art style?

Akuto: Mad World - January 11, 2019
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?
