Akiba’s Trip is a quirky open world/ RPG mix that tasks players with ripping the clothes off their opponents. It’s as strange as it sounds, but the DDNet team found the quirky formula to be a clever parody of both the Yakuza-style approach to game development and the Akihabara culture in Japan.
So, if you’d like to play the strangest game on the PlayStation 4 to date, then we have the contest for you! All you need to do is head on over to the survey link below and fill it out, and you’re in the draw (this will sign you up for our weekly newsletter if you’re not already on it).
As always the survey is a contest of skill. This time around we’re asking you to tell us who you would like to see interviewed if there is a second volume of Game Art produced. For people who missed that particular announcement, Game Art is a book that I have spent the last year writing which has interviews with 23 of the brightest creative minds in game development from around the world.
The list of people I interviewed for the first book are below. All you need to do to win a copy of the game is to surprise us with an interesting idea of who you would like to see interviewed next time around.
