July 30th, 2020, Milan – Ignition Publishing and Italian developer Caracal Games are proud to announce OkunoKA Madness, an evolution of the original masocore platformer OkunoKA, complete with new levels, bosses, features and challenges! Now available for pre-order on Xbox One and Nintendo Switch, OkunoKA Madness will release on September 8th for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Steam and Nintendo Switch.

Built from the ground up for speedrunners, OkunoKA Madness lets you play the way you want, as fast as you want. Offering three different speedrunning modes: across all worlds, single levels, or custom level selection, you’ll have complete freedom to challenge your reflexes and beat the clock. With fully customisable global and local leaderboards, challenge your friends to beat your best times across more than 100 levels, or even the world!
A continuous challenge, OkunoKA Madness will have you jumping, running and using elemental abilities at breakneck speed to traverse a corrupted land and defeat your mortal enemy, the Os. Unlock a huge roster of new characters, all with unique abilities, to transform the way you move and learn new ways to play. With countless hidden secrets and insane boss fights you’ll harness KA’s immortality to perform mind-numbing acrobatics and ultimately save the universe!
