Axel & Pixel is a point-and-click adventure game in which players guide an artist and his dog through surreal and abstract environments. Players must solve environmental puzzles that include redirecting a ray of light, throwing rocks at birds, and spraying water at a creature.

Axel & Pixel tells the story of Axel the artist and his dog Pixel as they embark on a fantastic journey through the surreal and dangerous Dream World. Combining simple point-and-click gameplay and a beautiful hand-drawn environment, the game is truly unique.

β€œAt 2K, we look to support talented independent video game developers and discover ways of bringing their work to the mass market,” said Christoph Hartmann, president of 2K. β€œThe Misadventures of P.B. Winterbottom and Axel & Pixel are passion projects for us. We saw the potential and the talent in these two unique and bold concepts, and are thrilled to be able to provide these developers with the support to create compelling games without altering their distinct visions.”

Axel & Pixel, rated E for Everyone, is being developed by Czech based Silver Wish Games.
