About The Game

The cutest and deadliest roguelite experience (plus extra fun modes, for some bite sized action)! What happens when you combine a hungry axolotl with an AK? You get a 'lotl of killing! AK-xolotl is a top-down roguelite shooter featuring the cutest amphibian. You're an axolotl with an AK (duh!) that goes on a rampage, shooting down their next meal! Oh, and we forgot to mention: you won’t die. Whenever you are down, you will just rise from the ashes and start over (you can call yourself the pond phoenix, if you will). Progress through the ecosystem and show who the real apex predator is! Advance through several maps that mix the best of both worlds: procedurally generated biomes, for a randomized experience, and carefully handcrafted room layouts, to achieve the perfect pond atmosphere. Collect food and unlock new powers along the way. After each run, bring your findings and watch your pond evolve: unlock new areas, customize your base, cook delicious meals with the spoils of your hunt…you won’t just be hunting with style, you’ll also be living with style! Raise several baby axolotls. Feed them, nurture them and watch them grow! After reaching adulthood they become playable and you can take them on your adventures!

  • Tons of different types of enemies: Axolotl's meal will be buffet style!
  • Expandable and customizable hub: build and customize your own pond and craft new items to decorate it! Your axolotl deserves the best place to live in.
