Hello! I am Göksan, founder of NAISU, and the main developer
In Mokoko X, we want to resurrect the specific arcade genre while adding a modern touch. The game play is simple: capturing the bigger portion of the game screen by drawing lines. The graphical style of our game is a combination of retro-arcade/anime. We’ve made it colorful and lively as possible. In each level, you fight against absurd bosses who are a nuisance to our eight girls. All the bosses and girls have their own short stories and connections with each other.
Talking about the stories, I wrote all the short stories and inspired from my elementary school times’ imagination. So, you will probably find them quite absurd and childish from time to time. I want to give some examples of the short stories from which you will learn the answers to the following questions:
- How do you stop a heartless but not soulless emperor?
- Can someone be a gyroscope and a guard dog at the same time?-
- Can ducks organize a Ponzi scheme?
- Are there really demonic headphones in the world?
- Why do lizardmen need a plastic toy for summoning their god?
- How do you become a villain after revolting against the ant queen?
- What do scientists want from Albert the wonderful sea creature?
The main reason you fight with these bosses is mainly to help out our lady characters. All the bosses have their special gang of minions as well. All the characters in the game are fully animated and voice overed both in English and Japanese.
There is also a main story of Mokoko which unlocks part by part after completing each lady/chapter. But I don’t want to spoil it here.
We also made sure that leaderboards are very active and heat up the competition for the top scores. People say the game is a bit hard, but so was the arcade age! But we are not merciless, there is an Easysetting. After you complete the story mode which has 32 levels, Arcade Mode unlocks, where you have to finish all the levels in sequence with a limited number of lives. We have a special leaderboard for this level. That’s the place where the most highly skilled players can show off their skills.
Lastly, I love this old genre and we are confident that we have done our best to be a worthy successor. I hope you feel the same. Good luck and have fun!
