So clearly the whole style of gameplay has my attention. That and the art style seems similar to Party Hard 2. Mind you far more violent like Aragami with a dash like capability like Mr. Shifty.

  • Cigarettes that change the aesthetics of Akane special abilities.

One single Arena:

  • Sprites with lights and shadows.
