Sakeworld is an exciting and unique 2D beat ’em-up game that features some of the most well-known rappers in the industry as alien-fighting enforcers on the streets of various locations across the world. The game is the brainchild of Jack Phoenix, a young artist who tragically lost his life in 2015 at the age of 15. In his honor, his father, Nick Phoenix, gathered all of the magnificent art Jack had created during his life and started the apparel brand Sake Forever. Nick then decided to create Sakeworld to honor his son’s creative spirit.
The latest update to the game, version 1.12, includes numerous updates to the game’s visuals, sound design, gameplay balance, and tutorial. These updates were made thanks to the community and press feedback, and players will be able to enjoy a more fluid experience with tighter and more accurate combat, better-placed weapons throughout the levels, and overhauled rapper, enemy, and boss animations. The tutorial area and help screens have also been improved based on player feedback, making it easier for players to learn the game’s mechanics.
One of the standout features of Sakeworld is its trippy and out-of-this-world aesthetic, which perfectly captures the game’s otherworldly nature. The game’s rappers are tasked with saving the streets from alien invaders and the most powerful crime syndicates on Earth, and players will face off against a variety of enemies, including the Grim Reaper, demon babies, infected gang members, and an undead reindeer. Players will have to punch through crowds, empty clips, and keep a cool head in this weird alternate dimension to succeed.
In addition to the updated gameplay and visuals, the 1.12 patch also includes several new features, such as a new scoring system UI for normal gameplay modes, new character and ambient sounds, and an improved MP3 player experience. The game’s difficulty has also been adjusted, with players on Easy and Medium difficulties now starting with four lives, and score bonuses for extra lives and mini-games at the end of Boss Rush have been increased by 5x.
Sakeworld is available now on PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4 consoles for $11.99. The game’s unique art style and exciting gameplay make it a must-play for fans of beat ‘em up games and fans of the featured rappers. The game is a testament to the creative spirit of Jack Phoenix and the dedication of his father to honor his son’s legacy. With its trippy visuals and exciting gameplay, Sakeworld is sure to provide hours of entertainment for gamers of all skill levels.
