Hi! I'll be playing AKIR8 tomorrow on stream along with several others games from the jam at 3:30pm EST. I'll be talking about any interesting design decisions as I play, and suggesting improvements if any come to mind. Please feel free to join me live, it'll be extra fun to chat together about your game while playing it :)


Hello! I missed your stream live, but I went back and watched it. Thank you for the feedback and thoughtful discussion during the stream.


My pleasure, thanks for making a cool game and for checking out the stream! :)

As someone who has not watched Akira, I gotta ask, why does selecting Tetsuo result in an instant Game Over?

Kaneda and Tetsuo have been friends since childhood. Kaneda was always the popular confident one and Tetsuo comes to feel overshadowed and resents Kaneda. Akira is an actual good movie so I'd say it's worth watching.
