Akane is an Arena Arcade-Slash that launches today on Linux, Mac and Windows on Steam. Since the price is more than affordable, you will want to hone your skills. Where you task is to kill your enemies with only 1 hit. While the objective of the game is simple. Kill as many enemies as possible.

Since Akane not overly expensive and the release also includes a 25% discount on Steam. The gameplay is very playable on Linux, which is more of a twin stick style with skillset. I can say this because my rounds only lasted a couple of minutes. But if you think you can do better, I’d like to see it.
