We are bringing you another new indie game today, Soul Axiom. Before I jump into the games details, here is a bit about the developer.
Wales Interactive is a multi-award winning indie video games developer & publisher. Since they opened their doors in 2012 they’ve received 20 awards. Here are a few of the games they have created
What is it?
“Take a journey through the deepest darkest recesses of your soul on your quest to unlock your identity, your story, your mystery. But beware: some mysteries are better left unsolved.”
Hardcore Gamer said “Keep an eye on Soul Axiom, as it’s shaping up to be an awe-inspiring and compelling journey with shades of TRON and Bioshock”.
That was all I needed. I watched the trailer and was hooked. Now I want everyone to see this game. Check out the trailer.
Man that excites me. Let’s dig a little deeper shall we…
Soul Axiom takes place in a server. Yup you are digital. See you start off by “uploading” yourself to the server known as Elysia. Elysia is a paradise where you can live forever. To steal a bit more from the developers (they did a good job wording this… I had to quote them)
Explore Soul Axiom’s rich environments and immersive story to unravel the mystery of your life, and your digital afterlife. You will be taken on an intriguing voyage of discovery, through beautiful, haunting locations, facing challenges that will lead you into danger on your mission to unlock your identity, your story, your mystery.
But beware: some mysteries are better left unsolved.
The game looks like it was inspired by Tron. Which is wonderful it adds an element of the unknown, which surprise surprise is exactly what this is about. You are finding yourself and the environment is helping set the tone. Now the music here adds a level of haunting that seems to bring more uncertainty to the player. Leaving you wondering what is going to jump out and get me.
The game is in the first person, but isn’t a FPS. I say wonderful. I like not having machine guns or RPG’s, while still giving you an incredible amount of power. Your hands are the weapons, they are your tools. Move objects, destroy objects. Your hands are your greatest asset.
There are a lot of cool things in the trailer… the statue angel… the underwater buildings… so much in a small window.
Now the game is still in development and is set for a Q4 release on PS4, Xbox One and Wii U.
Let us know what you think of the game’s trailer. Are you excited? Sound off in the comments below.
And as always Thanks for being awesome.
