I'll be doing a summary later, but, for now, you can keep checking back on Metacritic. Highs include Giant Bomb and USGamer (100%), "Lows" are Destructoid and IGN (75% and 79% - if you can call that low!)
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 fundamental laws of reality appear broken?
Life. Afterlife. Real. Virtual. Dream. Nightmare. It's a thin line.
It's Axiom Verge.
With launch coming around the corner on March 31st, The Axiom Verge studio (aka little ole' me) has been busy as of late. Part of that business stems from the sheer number of trade shows and interviews I've had. Here's a few featuring both Dan and Myself.
Try as I may I wasn't able to get the twitch player to embed without autoplaying, so here's a link to a separate window:
Axiom Verge is being featured as part of Sony's annual Spring Fever promotion, and, as such, will be 10% off for PS+ subscribers when it releases on 3/31 for PS4! (And since it's cross-buy, this will also net you the eventual Vita release, when that's out.)
Christian Nutt just posted a full interview with me on Gamasutra on my thoughts on "Metroidvania" games. Check it out here:
This is actually part of an "extended cut" he's making of the individual interviews he did for this article, where he interviews a ton of other devs (including Iga himself) as well:
So, Playstation Experience was overall awesome for Axiom Verge. We got a lot of press. Destructoid even named AV one of the Top 5 Indie Games at the event. And there is still more to come as the journalists get done editing footage and submitting stories.
As you know, I live in Las Vegas, so this was the first time I could go to a convention and sleep in my own bed at night! Though my own bed is probably a bit less swanky than the ones at the Venetian. Most of the pics below were taken by my wife, Chloe, at least if I was in them, which is why you don't see her, but she was with me 90% of the time.
It happens that the delightful Maya Kramer had already booked her room when she discovered that she couldn't get a flight for that day, so she stayed at our house for a couple of nights before the show. It was a lot of fun and also nice to show her the real Las Vegas as most of its residents experience it.
Dan and I did a few interviews, at least one of which should appear on old-timey broadcast television for anyone who gets EP Daily.
But the coolest part of conventions is always meeting other devs and journos in person.
So that about sums it up - a whole bunch of pics. Hope you enjoyed them. See you next show (probably PAX East!)
