Welcome to Axiom Verge
A failed scientist dies in an accident, only to awaken in a mysterious, alien world.
Where is he? How did he get here? And why do the basic laws of reality appear broken?
Life. Afterlife. Real. Virtual. Dream. Nightmare. It’s a thin line.
This is Axiom Verge.
Axiom Verge is available as a physical boxed edition for PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita and Wii U.
The Axiom Verge Multiverse Edition contains the following:
Axiom Verge Game
Deluxe Booklet With Developer’s Commentary & Art
DVD With Exclusive Making of Documentary
Double Sided Poster
Axiom Verge is a retro-styled 2D “metroidvania” action-adventure, inspired by such classics as Rygar, Contra, Bionic Commando, Blaster Master, and of course, Metroid. But it also gives you power over glitches like those found in classic games, Allowing you to scramble enemies, corrupt environments, and enter hidden areas.
After a lab accident, Trace awakens on the mysterious alien world of Sudra. Unsure if he was beamed to a distant planet or the far future — or if he’s trapped in an elaborate computer simulation — Trace begins his quest to defeat Athetos and uncover the secrets of Sudra.
What’s so special about Axiom Verge?
Tom Happ spent five years creating Axiom Verge entirely by himself, including the programming, art, story, and music. From its initial release, Axiom Verge has turned quite a few heads when it launched in 2015. Since then, the game has also launched on several additional platforms, been awarded a plethora of stunning review scores and has received dozens of awards from major publications — including PlayStation Blog’s “Editors Choice 2015,” Hardcore Gamer’s “Best of 2015,” Giant Bomb’s “Top Games of 2015,” and more.
Notable reviews include:
Jeff Gerstmann, Giant Bomb (5/5):
“You think you know how Axiom Verge will play out. You don’t.”
Peter Brown, GameSpot (8/10):
“Axiom Verge is better than the games that inspired it.”
Jeremy Parish, US Gamer (5/5)
“Simply one of the best games I’ve played in years.”
