What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We want to make Soul Axiom the best it can be and being able to have feedback from the community whilst we are developing the title will be invaluable to us. By charging for Early Access, we're hoping to ensure we get feedback from people who are passionate about shaping the game's destiny, invested in its future, and excited to get access to the game before it's released. This really is a chance to influence the end product and play a part in the game design process.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We anticipate the game will be in Early Access for 6 months. Over this time we will be periodically adding new content and chapters for players to experience.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The full version of the game will include all six chapters with around 12hrs of game-play. Each Chapter will included 2-4 hours of exploration, investigation and puzzle solving game-play.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The Early Access version of the game currently contains the first Chapter of the adventure along with some of Chapter 2. These levels will be fully playable and will introduce you to the new game mechanics, characters and story. It won't be totally bug-free and if you're experiencing an issue or have suggestions for improvements then your feedback will help us fix it.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“Soul Axiom will be included in sales where appropriate during Early Access but it is currently undecided whether the price will go up come full release.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We're hoping to get as much feedback as possible from the community to find out what ideas work and what don't. We'd also like suggestions from for improving game content as well as helping us with bug/crash reports.

About This Game

IN A NUTSHELL

From the indie games studio that brought you Master Reboot comes a new first-person sci-fi adventure game that will take you on a journey through the deepest, darkest recesses of your soul.

THE GAME

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.

SYNOPSIS

Take your first steps to paradise by uploading your soul to Elysia, named by critics as “the single most important development in the history of the human race” (Era Magazine, 2027). As the latest state of the art Digital Soul Provider, Elysia is a sprawling server where your memories and dreams become reality. Our patented SoulSync system allows you to choose the memories you want to enjoy for eternity; whether you are a living user or you simply wish to leave a lasting testament of your life that the whole family can relive at their leisure.

In Elysia, death has no dominion. In Elysia, life has no boundaries. Cast off your mortal shackles and discover the secret to immortality in your digital afterlife.
Discover Elysia. Then, now and forever.

THE FIRST 5 MINUTES OF THE GAME

When you begin the game you are free falling through a storm. Lightning sporadically illuminates the sky, showing brief, vivid flashes of memories. Your memories. You struggle to take a breath as you plummet, out of control, into the eye of the storm, towards your certain death.
Squinting, eyelashes battling the rain, you catch a glimpse of a large object that you are hurtling towards. You brace yourself for impact, for death, confused and terrified and –

You are on the deck of a ship, rain pummelling the wooden boards around you. You look up to see four shadowy figures on the bridge, gazing into the distance, with an old man at the helm.

FEATURES

Psychological Adventure with Exploration & Puzzle elements: Interact with cryptic logic puzzles, make psychological decisions and explore memories to unlock the secrets of your identity.

• Harness the abilities of Elysia: Discover new powers that will assist exploration and puzzle solving by phasing, building, destroying or corrupting.

• Unique visual style: There is a beautifully simplistic emphasis on striking shapes, strong colors, and beautiful effects and lighting to elicit a variety of emotions within The Elysia.

• Compelling storyline: A tense, but thought-provoking narrative with multiple outcomes, and leaves you yearning to explore all avenues of the lore.

• Dynamic adaptive environments: Use your abilities to manipulate your surrounding environments. Collect your powers and re-visit memories to unlock previously hidden areas.

• Packed full of content: With 6 chapters consisting of around 40 unique locations, expect between 8-12 hours of thrilling gameplay with the full release.

• Atmospheric soundtrack: Provides the perfect musical backdrop which subtly enhances the game through well-crafted association with the memories you explore.

Someone told me it was Bioshock meets TRON... boom straight into my library. No regrets at all, pretty dam good game. I'm not one for early access so I may wait to play more when it's complete, even though it's pretty polished anyway.

P.s. That monkey is off the hizzle fo' shizzle.

Early Access Review
So I don't know how long is the Early Access version for Soul Axiom, but going to talk about the one and a half hours of play time that I've spent in it.

First off the graphics, art direction, and atmosphere is nice, with the little bit of story i understood is presented nicely with good voice acting, and with text i actually had an interest to read so that's good, not many games make me do that.

The puzzles from the start to the end of my play session are nicely made, with mechanics of changing the state of objects and move them using different 'hand' types, the first one being able to solidify objects to make a platform for example, or make them hollow for you to walk through, the second one is 'rewind' or 'play' an object like making a wall disappear, or making stairs appear. Those to mechanics are fun to use honestly, and hopefully there's more to play around with too.

My problem with it now is some of it's levels feel too empty, maybe add more effects or..a crack? i don't, just anything to make it feel not like a grey box level. Second problem is I hope that some of the objects in the world have a better outline for you to use your ability on while 'not looking at it' , which makes it more convenient and saving time. Lastly there's sometimes no way of telling if I'm done with a level or not, making me confused as to where should i go next.

Overall I like the game and the direction it's heading in, just a few tweaks with the visuals and pointers to make the player experience through the game more smooth and less confusing, and in it's current state there isn't much bugs and the game runs like a charm for me, so get it if you want, if you like these types of puzzle adventure games.

As a big fan of Master Reboot I was and still am really excited about Soul Axiom. Only the first "level" is open, at the time writing this review.
I've really enjoyed the atmosphere so far. It's very reminisent of Master Reboot but with a bit of an upgrade. There are some areas that are too dark and others too bright. But this is still early development, and I understand that. The controls are extremely sensitive for me. Sometimes i found it very difficult to move around without the worry of jumping right the hell off. :D
The two different types of powers you get are really neat. I'm excited to see how far they really take it as it has GREAT potential. I wish for better hitboxes on identifying these items though as I found it to be quite difficult to hit certain objects some times or to even find them. Maybe make the GLOW a bit brighter and more obvious?

The biggest gripe i have with the game so far is you have to QUIT the game in order to go to your settings. This made it really difficult to adjust my controller sensitivity.

If you're interested in watching a Lets Play, I started mine here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OzWVFY2NBd8
Good for tips/tricks if you're lost and can't figure something out.

Soul Axiom review by Dionysis Spinos (as posted on grabthegames.com)

Today Grab The Games and I are really happy to present you a review for a newly released game called Soul Axiom! Soul Axiom Is created and published by Wales Interactive the company that brought you the hit game Master Reboot.


Soul Axiom So what is Soul Axiom? Soul Axiom is a first-person sci-fi adventure game and your goal in the game is to solve puzzles, survive and find the truth about your identity. The start of the game is simply amazing and it really made me wonna play the game even more. You start the game by free falling through a storm, there are a lot of vivid flashes of your memories… you land on the deck of a ship and when you think you are safe….something really weird happens a shadow wing monster destroy the ship and then……the adventure begins (and the fun hehe ). The game is really awesome and there are a lot of aspects I loved in it! I should start by mentioning first the fact that you start the game by uploading your soul to Elysia. One of the things I loved in this game is the beautiful design and graphics. I just can’t resist games that have such a beautiful design and graphic details.

One of the things I loved in this game is the beautiful design and graphics. I just can’t resist games that have such a beautiful design and graphic details. The game features a lot of different environments to explore, different places and worlds to explore during your long journey in order to discover your true identity and what really brings you to the world of Elysia. Another fact that I found really amazing in this game are the abilities there are in this game. During your adventures and exploration in the world of Elysia and the Soul Axiom game…you will have the chance to acquire some pretty unique abilities that will aid you during your journey and they will make your gameplay experience even better and more interesting!

You will have the opportunity to use your abilities to manipulate the environment and adapt it to your will and also you will have the chance to revisit your old memories and unlock secret/hidden areas that you couldn’t access before. This is something that I loved a lot in the game. Another aspect of the game that I shouldn’t forget mentioning because it really was amazing, is the soundtrack of the game. Awesome music and background sounds will make the gameplay experience really unique and sometimes during the game I felt like I was in a dream…like I was exploring old memories and my own soul! What an awesome atmosphere to play a game!

Last but not least, I would like to mention that the game is so worth getting and I totally recommend it to everyone! The atmosphere, the graphics, the music are simply addictive, amazing and so beautify and full of details , imagine that this title has even more staff to offer with regular updates and new levels I can’t find any reason why someone shouldn’t get it!

Verdict:
9/10

Early Access Review
I shall start with what I enjoyed about the game, because what is there of Soul Axiom is very polished and well presented. The graphical style of which is quite simplistic at heart, but is quite a unique one and very tron-esque in places, taking clear inspiration from the iconic digital world as you explore memories of yourself in a world much like it. While the graphical fidelity itself certainly isn’t what I would call high, it does have a certain charm to it that I personally quite liked.

The world is vibrant and highly unique, and although similar in concept to their previous title Master Reboot, the execution of the presentation is far superior. The idea of exploring memories itself is quite intriguing and allows for some interesting possibilities. The story that fits alongside the strange world is rather odd, because it’s hard to really say where it’s going in its current stages, due to the lack of explanation thus far. However, the short interactions with the strange being that has popped up a few times have certainly caught my attention and it’s something I would love to see more of.

As for the gameplay itself, it consists of environmental exploration and puzzle solving - this of which is done through the usage of certain abilities you pick up along your way. Currently there is only two however, that being removing and placing objects, and a rewind, pause and play function. How you use these with puzzles is actually quite intriguing, as you are able to cause specific objects to construct themselves or deconstruct before your very eyes, or you can rewind a moving object, pause or play it. The puzzles of which are entirely environmental thus far, meaning the manipulation of objects. I certainly found both of these to be very interesting mechanics, especially when bundled together and I look forward to seeing where they take it... However, there is one major problem with Soul Axiom - it's less than 40 minutes long.

I should elaborate on this, because what is currently there in Soul Axiom is very polished and highly enjoyable, there just simply isn’t very much of it. It simply feels like paying for a pie and being given a single mouthful. Sure, it might be delicious and cooked to perfection, but that’s not what you paid for. Awful metaphors aside, an update post linked on the store page does detail the amount of content that is in the game currently, but the information is nowhere to be found on the store page itself.

In its current state I am personally disappointed with the amount that is currently there for the price that it is. The developers have however promised regular updates and I have full confidence that Soul Axiom will be a unique and highly enjoyable game upon completion, and that is personally what I would recommend waiting for. The fault partially lies within the genre, because can’t have a game of that type, so focused on narrative and exploration, part completed and leading to dead ends. For now, we will have to wait and see where Soul Axiom goes, because while the future looks like a bright one, right now it simply falls flat on its face.

Early Access Review
I don't usually get many Early Access titles but after reading the reviews and seeing what they did with Master Reboot I decided to give it a go. The premise is that your soul has been uploaded to a digital realm which isn't a them that gets dealt with all that often.
Using a range of interesting Bioshock-like powers you have to solve various puzzles to progress through the game and find out what's going on. The puzzles have a good amount of variation and often require you to use several different powers in order to solve them.
As several others have said, the art style is quite appealing and is clearly inspired by the Tron aestethic which works well, for the style of the game.
Overall the few minor bugs that I've encountered so far don't get in the way of the gameplay and haven't hindered my enjoyment of the title. I'm looking forward to what else happens with the game as the Early Access continues.

Although there is much more still to be added to this game, it is well worth the money! There is a lot to explore and thankfully, the puzzles aren't too easy or repetitive.

I have spotted a few subtle touches that have been added to the game which were very intriguing... so keep an eye out for those!

I heard from the discussions there will be an update soon with more content... Think I might try out Master Reboot which is apparently the predecessor to this.

Love this game! I was a huge fan of Master Reboot so I had high hopes for this one. I haven't played all of the early access game yet but what I have played is incredible.

Think Tron meets BioShock with a real sense of mystery to it. The art style of the game is really unique and the mechanics are a huge improvement from Master Reboot so it's got my vote. Looking forward to playing more as I heard there is more content being thrown in this week!

The game is great! The majority of it keeps me on the edge of my seat and quite frankly leaves me a bit freaked out at nights. Don't get me wrong, I don't think it's a horror game but I do get scared quite easily.

The visuals are really nice, especially when you get to the later levels and the soundtrack is sometimes pleasantly relaxing and yet at other times it's quite freaky and futuristic.

I like the monkeys but I do miss the ducks from Master Reboot! Quack.

Nice game, Good job. Can't wait for more.

A great sequel to Master Reboot! The quirky and unique graphics have been improved whilst maintaining the creepy and "lonely" atmosphere of the game. The puzzles are challenging but engaging and the story is mysterious and intriguing. If you enjoy solving puzzles, exploring unique environments whilst uncovering secrets in the plot then this game is well worth a shot.

Soul Axiom is really a fantastic story-driven adventure puzzle game that has some great levels! At one point I was in a futuristic city with a Tron like affect and then I was sent to a Jungle full of monkey statues... Brilliant!

I can't wait to play more!

This game is as unique as they come. The atmosphere and digital world within create a simplistic but amazing reality where the gamer is constantly bewildered with the visuals in front of Him/Her.

It's games like these that you can see that the heart and soul of the developers and artists involved have been poured into making this game the best it can be. I would highly recommend purchasing this thrill ride of a game and would caution restraint as It can be quite addictive.

Score: 10/10

I was a bit un-sure of buying an Early Access game but I am so glad I got this! The whole concept of uploading your soul to a digital 'cloud' is incredibly intriguing and so I'm looking forward to finding out the whole story. I haven't come across many bugs at all really apart from a couple of minor mesh collision issues here and there.
What really sells this game to me is the atmosphere and the creepy digital SFX you come across throughout the game. If you're not sure about getting an Early Access game like I was then the only thing I can say DO IT!

I have thoroughly enjoyed playing Soul Axiom so far not only because the visuals are stunning but because there is something intriguing with the story!

You start game falling onto a crooked ship that glitches out when you land. At first I thought it was a glitch with the game but then I saw some figures standing on the ship looking at me and they glitched away with some pretty creepy noises. Similair creepy noises returned when finding the collectables in the form of an eye tearing through the surface of the ship... this really freaked me out and I can't wait to find more of these to reveal the story!

The powers you collect are a really nice touch to the game, this one power lets you 'Phase' things in and out, meaning you can walk through objects or make objects appear out of knowhere. I saw in the trailer there is an orange power that shoots some sort of orb at things and even game doesn't involve much action/shooting, I could see this power making some of the puzzles very interesting. Did I forget to mention that you use these powers to solve puzzles which in-turn reveals bits of your story?

I'm really loving this so far so please keep up the good work guys and I'm looking forward to more content being added. I might have to re-visit levels to find more of those collectable monkeys!

Brilliant game, this is my surprise hit of the year! It's basically a cyberpunk bioshock with cool, non-repetitive puzzles instead of the fighting. Simply love the style and exploration focus.
