Point-and-click adventure games? Hey, you can never have to many of those -- especially when it comes to a platform like Xbox LIVE Arcade. The Czech Republic-based indie developer Silver Wish Games is helping out this cause with its upcoming title Axel & Pixel.

While we had heard rumblings of the game before, it wasn't until today that publisher 2K Games unleashed a bunch of media for Axel & Pixel. On top of screenshots and a debut trailer, there's also the announcement of an October 14 release date.

The hand-drawn environments remind me of another game, Samorost, which I hope you are all familiar with. If not, now is the time to repent your gaming sin. As for this upcoming game, at the very least it looks intriguing. No word on a price, but if recent trends continue, it could be another 800 pointer.
