Ok, so a lot of people might not know this, but Nulgath is working on his own game called Akumi Wars. It's a Tower Defense (TD) game with capture elements like OS. Figured I'd let people know. A few details about it from the man himself:


We'll follow the main character Akumi as she fights across the realms. You can recruit or capture units you fight and use them on your own team. The fun part will be mixing and matching different character abilities for and optimal team. I can't explain it but from what Adam has shown me of the game engine, it feels unique from other TD games. The characters can have stats like an MMO character does. Chance to critical strike, stats like a chance to dodge damage, varying attack speeds, attack range and obviously attack damage. There will be characters that can raise the dead. There will be things like real time physics damage. A character can cast a projectile that bounces randomly and damages anyone it hits. Things like that. That's why we're working on the game demo to see how this plays out. It's pretty exciting to see how this comes together.

A couple of extra notes I gathered from messaging on Patreon:

Plan is to make the game less of a handful then Oversoul. Asked about char stats if they could be leveled up or stat customize:


For this game, we’re going super simple, at least on this first pass. We don’t want to shoot ourselves in the foot by going too ambitious on the programming. So editing your team of unique characters will be the main strategy of the game. Finding and capturing new units to add to your roster will be another. There’ll be something for collectors similar to OS. I’d like to add hundreds of unique characters with time. I have nothing else on the agenda except Akumi Wars so we could hit that mark pretty quickly.

The guys who made the OS music are still around with Nulgath being good friends, and Nulgath hopes to bring them on board for the Akumi Wars music. If all goes well we can expect more sick tunes from them, and I hope they do because seriously go and listen to the OS dungeon music for a bit it is lit. (Make sure to send them some love on Twitter if you see them!)

Artix is helping with the engine and they are good friends and on good terms. Not sure how things stand with the company itself but presumably at worst cordial and at best good, since Nulgath is willing to do sets for AQW and the like. Either way from what I understand Akumi Wars is Nulgath's own thing and not a part of AE and Artix is just helping out as a friend. (Now confirmed.)

You will need to find the patreon and the like yourself if you want to back the game, because while it is how he is doing Akumi Wars there is some stuff on there that would get me banned if I linked it. Needless to say if you plan on backing the patreon make sure to be 18+.

Sounds like Shadow of War from the first paragraph. What's the "it feels unique from other TD games" part? What is TD? Tower Defense I guess?

Now I think about it MAYBE I should have clarified that. Now done. it is indeed Tower Defense. As for what makes it different, I'm not sure yet. I don't know a lot and have shared what I do. Maybe it's the capture stuff?

Well I am a huge fan of TD games. Shall be interesting to see how this pans out. Especially real time physics damage.

That's good. If they're all on good terms I hope the company becomes profitable enough to hire him back on at some point. Even if they don't, at least he's working on his own projects.

Quick update on this:

There is now a second programmer alongside Artix. No idea who.

Secondary actions are a thing. The characters can have a chance to activate a secondary ability which can be a lot of different things.
