Axel & Pixel hitting XBLA soon, here's what it looks like


9:00 PM on 10.02.2009



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.

A free roguelike with music by Banjo-Kazooie's Grant Kirkhope? Yes, please!

I'm struggling to stop playing The Enchanted Cave 2 for long enough to tell you about it. Unassuming name and overabundance of roguelikes aside, this browser-based game is terrific. You delve into a cavern in search of gold, ...more

Axiom Verge does speedrunning and gifs right

I had Axiom Verge on my mind earlier today when writing about Ghost Song, another promising Metroidvania. This slick gif ensures the game will remain there for the rest of the day. Designer Tom Happ included it in a blog post...more

Ghost Song is an unsettling Metroid-like adventure

Nintendo may not be working on a new 2D Metroid, but we've got creators like Matt White and Tom Happ out there filling that void with Ghost Song and Axiom Verge, respectively. I come away feeling like we're in good hands eve...more
