Akuto: Mad World February Update

Akuto: Mad World - Juggernaut

Welcome to February’s monthly update for Akuto: Mad World. This month I didn’t complete as many tasks as I liked, mainly due to traveling to two different events. But I am quite proud of the tasks I did manage to complete, such as the updated camera and custom settings, which has led to better gameplay. You can read on to see what major updates were released in February and at the bottom of the post, you will find a full list of updates that happened this month and what I am planning for next month. And remember, if you like the game, recommend it to your friends or leave us a nice review.

Akuto: Mad World is now available from Steam or Humble Store.
