Indie-dev and publisher, RedDeer.Games in association with Bacord Games announced that Maki: Paw of Fury is heading to Steam and Nintendo Switch later this year.
Maki: Paw of Fury, is an retro-inspired Beat’em up, with incredibly large and cute anthropomorphic sprites. The main character, a charming fox named Maki, is drawn into a world full of threats and dangers. His beloved is kidnapped by a mysterious villain, and he must set out to rescue her, defeating all sorts of enemies and bosses along the way.
Maki has mastered the noble art of Tsume no Ken, making him an extraordinary anthropomorphic fighting machine capable of incapacitating any opponent who dares to stand in his way on his quest for vengeance. With the ability to turn a tuna into a weapon, he seems invincible. What could possibly go wrong?
The gameplay is very straightforward, featuring light and heavy attacks, as well as a super special move. Additionally, you can use directional buttons in combination with action buttons to trigger certain special moves. The stages are occasionally interspersed with mini-game-like sequences, adding variety to the gameplay. Based on our experience playing the demo, it appears that the difficulty is aimed at accessibility rather than catering to hardcore players specifically. In other words, it is not overly challenging.
The demo is already downloadable on Steam, so you can take a look for yourself. Maki: Paw of Fury will be available on Steam and the Nintendo Switch console. The release date will be revealed at a later date. The trailer information also mentions a Xbox and Playstation release, but for now they are not announce for this year.
