Thomas Happ spent five years creating Axiom Verge entirely by himself – including the programming, art, story, and music. From its initial release, Axiom Verge turned quite a few heads when it launched in 2015. Since then, the game has also launched on several additional platforms, was awarded a plethora of stunning review scores, and received dozens of awards from major publications –including PlayStation Blog’s “Editors Choice 2015,” Hardcore Gamer’s “Best of 2015,” and Giant Bomb’s “Top Games of 2015.”
The “Multiverse Edition” heralds an important landmark achievement for Thomas Happ Games and will include the following: copy of the game; deluxe booklet with developer commentary and art; double-sided poster; and an exclusive “making-of” documentary on DVD. This special edition will be available on PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, and Wii U. Other formats are yet to be confirmed.
The “Standard Edition” will include a physical copy of the game. This version will be available on PlayStation 4 only.
The World of Axiom Verge
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.
Axiom Verge has been featured in a number of outlets – including DualShockers, Hardcore Gamer, Nintendo Wire, Destructoid, Gamereactor, and Nintendo Life.
