Have you ever wanted your top-down shooters to be more adorable? Maybe you’ve wondered how much damage an axolotl could do with a machine gun? If either of these questions interest you, AK-xolotl is something you definitely don’t want to miss.
According to the Steam page, AK-xolotl’s concept is simple:
You’re an axolotl with an AK (duh!) and you must defend your pond from enemy invaders to score big! We must protect this pond!
AK-xolotl is a top-down arcade battle arena shooter featuring an angry axolotl with an AK.. duh! You must defend your cute amphibian’s pond from enemy invaders to achieve the highest score.
Face off against increasingly chaotic waves of deadly predators, invaders, and field mice with powerful weaponry and abilities. In single-player and co-op modes, survive the onslaught and protect baby axolotl who looks generally super bad-ass with a gun.
AK-xolotl is a battle arena shooter featuring the amphibian, the myth, the legend: AXOLOTL in their prime!
As the apex predator you must defend this pond from waves of enemies?

Daniel Piqueras Constantin is currently developing AK-xolotl on his own, and this top-down shooter is chock-full of character. Along with re-growable limbs, your amphibious ally is equipped with 15 different weapon, six power-ups and game-changing variants. Not enough? Online leaderboards allows you to compete with friends as you protect your pond.
AK-xolotl is set to release on PC during Q2 2021, and it might come to consoles later on down the line. IF you’d like to stay in the know, you can follow the project’s Twitter page or add it to your Steam wishlist.
