'Axiom Verge' Announced - Screens

by Rainier on April 17, 2012 @ 10:28 a.m. PDT

Axiom Verge is a retro-styled 2D example of the “Metroidvania” genre, and is inspired by greats such as Blaster Master, Bionic Commando, Rygar, Contra, Cave Story, and, of course, Metroid.

You play as Trace, a relatively normal guy who suffers a fatal-ish injury, after which he wakes up in a strange, unsettling new world that is both high-tech and incredibly ancient.

Of course, in addition to the many classic gaming influences, there are a few innovations to be had as well, but these will be explained at a later time.

Features:

  • About 8 hours of play time (depending on how much you explore)
  • Over 60 items and powerups hidden throughout the world
  • Over 20 upgradeable weapons
  • Classic 2D graphics
  • Gripping sci-fi storyline
  • Pulsing sci-fi soundtrack
