                           Thank you Hideo Kojima for being an inspiration since 1987

-From men to Ludens-
-From men to Ludens-

 

  • AKEM STATE is a 2D Action / Adventure RPG game that will be developed in the beautiful style known as METROIDVANIA, with this we want to create a mechanics easy to learn but hard to master.
  • The game will be developed on UNITY and for the next platforms:
  • Playstation 4
  • XBOX One
  • Steam (PC/Mac/Linux) 
  • Wii U or (Nintendo NX)

                                                                  GAMEPLAY 

We are going to recreate the exploration of Metroid and Catlevania games have, we will make every single background be different for the player can create his own map on the head like the Dark Souls or Bloodborne saga, Of course the map will be there in case you get lost.

In the game will be two options to confront the enemies, Action mode where you break apart the enemy team, but it will not be an easy task or the Stealth mode based on games like Metal Gear Solid and the saga Tenchu stealth assassins where the enemy is always hunting you, if you're detected they are going for your head or if they lose you they are going to hunt you down.

                                                                     HISTORY

The story takes place after the Geo-sismo partially destroys the earth and the human race is reduced on 37%.

Japan is the first country to recover from this incident and also to discover a new material called agamita. They establish it as the most powerful energy on earth, but is too unstable to be used, so they work for years to create a way of concentrate the energy through a catalyst.

Then the Agamita is considered a relic for the future of humanity as it requires a small amount of material  to get a lot of energy, allowing us to survive in space to ensure our legacy.

The whole world is at war for the precious material, and starts to be  governed by the rule survival of the fittest

                                                                      STORY

Asher is a young man which the war for the Agamita show him since her childhood that life hits hard, and after surviving two long years on the shadow from the Claw of Horus the army who take it all from him, suddenly is forced to accept the help from a stranger that will teach him that who survives must keep fighting, not knowing he still has a long way to fall.

                                                  LOCATION AND BACKGROUND

The game will be developed in UK 187 years after Geo-sismo, getting with this the opportunity to create European environments, cold countries sparsely populated that represents the cruelty of war and cities with a cyberpunk style which contrasts with the cleaning of forests covered by snow.

Places where the characters will unwrapped and live his story, scenarios with a touch of nostalgia retro that you will remember like Ghost in the Shell, Akira and Cowboy Bebop.

Risks and challenges

I have been planning this project for some years, since I was in school to be exact, with the time I've been polishing the bases for the game, like history, drawing, animation and characters with the skills i'm gained from university, movies, anime, manga and the passion for video games.

The problems are in any long term project and this is not the exception but we and the developer teams are ready to confront any obstacle that stands in our way, with the tools and skills each one of the artists have.

We want that what defines the game will be those memorable moments that each one of us like gamers creates to complete and explore a new game.
