Axiom Verge: Multiverse Edition
Explore and uncover the mystery of a surreal alien world by blasting aliens and glitching your environment in this intense retro side-scrolling action/adventure.
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.
