The day is here, SOUL AXIOM early access version has arrived!

The day is here, SOUL AXIOM early access version has arrived! Originally we planned for the early access version of the game to feature the first Chapter of the adventure only, with 5 locations to explore. We are pleased to say that we’ve squeezed in some Chapter Two content for you to demo as well containing a new player ability to supplement the new game mechanic introduced in Chapter One. These levels are fully playable and will introduce you to the new game mechanics/abilities but there are areas of these levels that we are still working on to add that extra polish. The game won't be totally bug-free either and if you're experiencing an issue or have suggestions for improvements then your feedback is vital to help us fix it. The PC version has been continuously tested and should be the most robust version. As well as PC we have included Mac & Linux support although these platforms have not been fully tested so you may encounter more problems with these builds.
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. This really is your chance to influence the end product and play a part in the game design process.

In the next few weeks we will be releasing the complete version of Chapter Two, implementing achievements as well as addressing any issues encountered or improvements requested by the community.

Thank you for supporting our games and if you like them then you gonna love Soul Axiom so head on over and get involved with Soul Axiom early access and be part of the team!

About This Game

The Infinity is the largest spaceship ever built by man-kind; flung into the void of space to secure humanity a new home amongst the stars. However, instead of discovering paradise, the inhabitants of The Infinity unlocked the door to a long forgotten nightmare.

Deep inside this leviathan something terrible hunts, out of myth and legend the last werewolf stalks the ship. Infinity Runner centres on a prisoner desperately trying to escape the decaying ship and the clutches of the terror within. It’s a sci-fi action running game for PC, Mac, and Linux that features 14 stunning levels, Oculus Rift support and multi-player.

In Infinity Runner, the player controls the protagonist, the prisoner, from a first-person perspective as he is challenged to escape from the gargantuan spaceship. This is accomplished by use of techniques and movements inspired by the disciplines of parkour and mixed martial arts, the game-play conveys the players strain and physical contact with the environment whilst dealing with the constantly changing and expansive surroundings. As well as these evasive elements there’s also combat sections in the game where a dynamic targeting system is used which calls for fast reflex combinations. The game supports the latest virtual reality technology as well as having multi-player mode which enables up to 32 people to play head to head.

Even though it’s a slick action game the story is very important part of your journey, as well as being your call to action it will reveal revelations along your action packed ride. Some of the story is told at high pace but there are some slower paced transition sections at the end of each level where we develop the narrative for the player. Without giving too much away you have someone guiding you through the game who talks to you telepathically. Their role is not only to orientate you but to help unfold the story for the player as you find out who you are and why you’re on the ship.

The Oculus Rift mode literally transports you inside the Infinity spaceship to be totally immersed in the thick of the action. The game-play is designed to complement the VR mode so you get the best experience possible and it enhances the game by adding another dimension to the playing experience.

There is also another feature that transforms the game into a unique experience, the multi-player mode. This allows up to a 32 players to battle it out head to head to find out who’s the ultimate Infinity Runner.

Infinity Runner packs a lot into one super slick sci-fi action game bundle and with it re-invents the running genre!

FEATURES
* WEREWOLVES IN SPACE!
* 14 ACTION PACKED LEVELS
* ARCADE MODE
* STORY-MODE
* OCULUS RIFT MODE
* WOLF LEVELLING SYSTEM
* MULTI-PLAYER MODE WITH UP TO 32 PLAYERS

STARSHIP INFINITY SPECIFICATION
Over 150 miles long and nearly 30 miles in diameter at its widest point, the progress of The Infinity's construction at the Tranquillity Ship yards on the Moon could clearly be seen from Earth. The revolutionary ship requires a crew of 5,000,000 people to keep it running and is designed to house another 10 million people as general population ready for the colonisation of new worlds. The Bio-domes, seen along the side of the ship, house forests that cover nearly 60,000 square miles in total, providing oxygen and a food source for the population and an environment for rest and relaxation. The greatest technological achievement can be found in the engine room, which houses the revolutionary Infinity Drive. It is vastly smaller than previous engines at a mere 10 miles long and far more powerful than traditional models which would take up to a third of the length of a starship, creating space for more brave colonists heading out into the unknown.

Canabalt if you added a thrid dimension crossed with Mirror's Edge but on rails (and with combat that doesn't utterly kill your momentum). It's pretty fun, and addictive enough that I completed the story mode in one go and then played through the hard and arcade modes until some real-life errands dragged me away. Normally for a game this short I'd say the price is a bit high, but it's a game based around being fast, so. It also has to be commended for having a silly premise but making it work by playing it straight; way too many games start with a wacky idea and then constantly push it with zany humour until you're sick of the entire thing.

The flaws obviously weren't enough to stop me playing, but they're worth noting: I don't think a game like this really needs a lives system, it would probably be enough just to dock your score when you die. There were a few rare instances where I failed to dodge an obstacle and kind of just clipped through it instead, which was helpful but probably something that might need fixing. The biggest flaw for me was that the voice actor (there's really only one with a speaking role) runs through her lines faster than a werewolf through a spaceship. Better voice direction would really have helped there, towards the end I was beginning to suspect they'd shot the cutscenes before they recorded the dialogue and panicked when they realised they weren't long enough to get out what little plot the game has.

I really wish steam had a middle answer.
Its ok but very repetive and feels like a mobile game. It is quick and you get a real sence of speed and mobility.

7/10
Good for what it is; but it isn't much

While normally not anything like the usual type of game that I would play, the idea of werewolves in space was just too fun a concept for me to pass up. I was pleasantly surprised to find that it was fun to play. Its kinda entertaining to just go through in Arcade mode and see how long it takes me to faceplant into a wall by failing to make a turn in time (or, more embarassingly, turning the wrong way), while trying to keep myself from accidentally jumping face-first into the obstacles I'm supposed to be sliding under.

The Quick Time Events, which normally annoy the hell out of me, didn't do that in this game, well, except for that one fight at the end. Though, really, I think the game would have been better with more werewolf in it.

Incredible game that takes advantage of the Oculus Rift! Really enjoyed it and despite what some people have said, I didn't feel sick at all. Though there isn't always someone online to match up with I did enjoy inviting my friends to the multiplayer mode as well. Nice job!

First things first, this game gets buggy the moment you turn up the graphics, it will give you lag that either can kill you, or will by skiping the QTE's and making you die instantly. However i still say this is a good game. Why? becaues when it works it is good fun, its got very streamline gameplay and the story while very low on answers does give you enough to make you intrested in how it continues. Overall its a fairly good game with enough bugs to make one very mad, Id still recomend it though cause if you work around them it is a fun game

4 out of 5 stars.
I don't own an occulus rift, so I can't rate it on that experience. I can however rate it on its gameplay.

I find Infinity runner is a game best entered with few expectations. It promises pretty much what you think it does. Its a first person action running simulator.
That said, its an on rails obstical course with an interesting twist. The werewolves in space theme allows you to turn into a hulking werewolf mid-run, and change many of the rules in your favor, as it should. The combat in the game (yes, it has combat) is in the form of QTEs depending on the position and number of enemies in a room. If you succeed the challenge, you are rewarded with a smash and kill style fight as your avatar kills everyone in the room and continues to run at break neck speeds.
Yes, you are running at break neck speeds as any failure to react correctly to the environment as it explodes around you is an instant death. Thankfully you as a player are barely penalised, as you are almost immediately put back into sonic speeds at revival.
I rate this game highly because I believe it accomplised its goal almost entirely. I found myself glued to the screen, not trying to contemplate what was going on in the world, but instead reacting to my immediate environment. Each level brings its own style of obsticals, from literally jumping through space to sliding under gunships as they lay fire down on my naked body.

I wouldn't play this game for the lore, but why would you? This is a game meant to be played for about 20 minutes at a time, and is very satisfying as that. RUN!

Oh boy...This game..

Well, its a game where you automatically run down corridors occasionally turning left or right and dodging everything possible. you go through "Sections" which take about 3 minutes or so to complete at a time. Took me 90 minutes to complete this game which amazed me. The game is VERY short. but it was pretty fun time I must say

Though...The Final Part of the game is CHEAP. There is no Combat in this game it is all QTE's (Quick Time Events) and the final area is only that. and this game is very picky. so if you hit one wrong key BOOM..Restart. and you try again, but of course losing all your lives will force a restart on the entire final stage again just to retry that frustrating final encounter.

So overall I liked the game, but that final area really got to me after retrying the level a few times to actually pass it. for the sale price I got it for ($2.99) its really not bad.

I grabbed this game in the sale and thoroughly enjoyed what I've played so far. It took me a while to get used to the controls as you have to be FAST in this game. I thought the fact you could turninto the werewolf was great, which totally changes the game.

I would advise people to try this on the hardest difficulty for more of a challenge. Generally a cool game 8/10.

I enjoyed the fast paced parkour style of gameplay that it offered and the well done voice acting. Not to mention the out of the ordinary concept of werewolves in space. I also enjoyed that there was plenty of obstacles to overcome by various methods such as sliding, quick time fighting sequences, jumping, and ziplining in human form and climbing on walls, crushing enemies with ease, and even breaking through walls in werewolf form. However, I noticed some things that I just could not brush off. For instance, after you have completed the first two sectors, your female friend in the game no longer follows along with the words that are being spoken by the voice actress. Its like she has mind of her own and it is telling her not to open her mouth. Also, there's not alot of ways to take down an oppenent. I don't expect the werewolf form to have many ways to take down an enemy (due to the fact a werewolf is a raging beast) but, I do wish the human form had more fighting styles since your main character was trained to be a deadly living weapon. The story is okay. Not the best story ever told but it does fill in the gaps (most of them anyway). The final issue I have with this game, and is also the biggest issue, is the controller support. I see most games give you more options in order to change the button layout to your own comfort level and they don't mix and match buttons in order to keep throwing you off, but that is all you ever see when you play Infinity Runner. For instance, you are given three configuration choices depending on your controller and what you feel most comfortable with: one for ps3, one for xbox, and one that is custom. The issue starts when you are in a fighting sequence against the guard when it tells you to press the press the A button, it actually means that you have to press the RB button. What!? The layout for the buttons is scattered all over thet place! When you press X, it actually means Y. When you press LT, it actually mean the start button. This was so unbearable that I had to stick with the playstation configuration becuase most of the buttons were in the right order. The only two buttons that switched places was R2 and R1, as well as L2 and L1. This was the most frustrating part of the entire game. Overall, my final verdict for this game is a 7/10. Infinity Runner is a over the top, sci-fi based, parkour simulator that has fast paced gameplay that will leave gamers wanting more of the adrenaline rush. But, there are also a ton of other issues that need to fixed right away. Otherwise this franchise will NOT reach it's full potential.

Fun game with what I think is a pretty intriguing story-line! You wake up on a ship *naked* and are running away from something that is hunting you... but there is a great twist that mixes up the game. Why are you on the ship? Why and how is there a woman talking to you and helping you escape?

I recommend this game to anyone who just wants to have some quick action fun! I don't have an Oculus Rift, though I can imagine it would be CRAZY :D

+ Sense of speed
+ QTEs fit the game
+ Unlimited replay value with Infinity mode
+ Decent voice acting

+/- Had to use both my controller and mouse in order to get through the menus (even after reconfiguring)
+/- Setting isn't all that interesting, but not bad

- Too dark (even after adjusting the settings)
- QTE scenes sometimes take too long and slow down the experience
- Tutorial isn't fully worked out; some things are clearly explained while others are not
- Mediocre graphics

Infinity Runner could be passed off as a "Temple Run" clone on first impression, but once you get into the game you'll discover that Infinity Runner offers much more than just that. The game keeps throwing you into interesting set piece moments and new obstacles to keep you on your toes. The game is set in the first person perspective and that helps the player get a good sense of the game's speed.

The graphics aren't bad, but they do look dated, comparible to the end of the PS2 era. Though it may lack in high poly models, or high resolution textures, it does feature some nice particle effects, and though the graphics are dated, they do look good for what it is.

Overall Infinity Runner suprised me by how much I've actually enjoyed this game. It's streangely addictive, and the set peice moments of the game are quite exhilarating.

Pros:
- Addictive game play
- Set peice moments are exhilarating
- Story is suprisingly well fleshed out
- Lots of features to explore

Cons:
- Dated graphics
- QTE combat
- Might be too simple for some

Decided to pick this up after seeing Jim Sterling playing it, interesting premise and it was pretty cheap.
Infinity runner is basically all about running down a massive spaceship, occasionally you’ll turn into a werewolf. The game handles running on your behalf, so you just need to avoid obstacles and go around corners. This is a lot harder than it sounds. I think it interesting that some people compared this to Temple Run. Yes its somewhat similar, but this feels much more like an old school arcade game to me. The difficulty curve is pretty steep, your first few runs will probably end with you running into a wall. However once you’ve got to grips with the controls it becomes a lot more rewarding. Nailing a difficult section with the soundtrack pumping makes you feel like a boss.

The pace of the game is FAST, you really have to concentrate at all times. I don’t normally like QTE’s but here they break up the gameplay nicely and let you relax, albeit just for a few seconds.
Graphics are pretty good especially the parts where you transition outdoors. I’m able to play it on max settings on my laptop which is a nice surprise.

Haven’t had a chance to play multiplayer yet but it sounds interesting.
All in all this is a good game in a niche genre. There are a lot worse games on steam at this price.
