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!

SOUL AXIOM - Release Date Changed

We've had to delay release of the early access version of Soul Axiom until December 1st. This is down to a couple of factors, firstly the Halloween Sale and secondly, the abundance of game releases over the coming weeks both impacting our visibility on the Steam store.

We're pleased to say that the game is looking great and this gives us some extra time to add that added polish and extra content to the Early Access version.

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.

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.

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

+ 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

[Rating: 70/100]

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.

Overall I really enjoyed Infinity Runner, however its definitely not one for someone looking for a relaxing experience! It’s really intense a challenge for more hardcore players. I also can highly recommend the Hard difficulty for the sadists among you.
Graphics wise it holds up, not that you notice much the speed your going! the Monorail section being a highlight in my opinion. The other Arcade modes gives some good replay value and I’m slowly making my way though the challenge mode which adds a visual level to your running skills.
I have only played one Multiplayer game but from what I tried it’s a variety of the story mode levels, randomly it reminded of Wipeout HD with the Speed and Power-ups.
I recommend Infinity Runner as something different to play, its intense but it seems to pack a lot of content and gives some good challenges.

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.

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

The Game is addictive and trippy at the same time. The story mode is engaging and introduces you to the game mechanics early on then blows you away with the whole idea of Werewolves in Space and some infuratingly addictive levels to naviagte through.
The arcade mode is bonkers but bonkers in all the right ways. Never have i wanted to become a werewolf so badly...

Addictive, Frustrating, yet a well rounded enjoyable experience.

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.

Infinity Runner is a running game and its fairly similar to Temple Run and games of that sort, But played in First Person.
I was actually really excited to play this title when I saw it in the coming soon section but after about an hour in the game I started to notice that the whole thing is kind of repetitive and I think I was expecting a little more from this game since it was on PC. It is still fun to play, its just not what I thought it would be.
The story takes place inside a ship called the Infinity, you wake up and have to escape by running down very long and dark tunnels and avoiding traps and fighting enemies. There is only a few times when you are actually in an enviroment where you can see around you. Which was dissapointing to me considering the store page listed it with "Stunning Graphics", I have yet to really see anything stunning. The graphics are decent enough though, they aren't terrible or anything. Most the time you're running too fast to notice any textures on the sides of you anyways. I ran it at max settings and it never dropped below 80-fps. There are quite a bit of video settings in the options menu too so anyone with a low end PC should be fine to run this, but as always check the system requirements first.
As far as playability goes, like I said before its kinda repetitive. You're stuck inside dark tunnels of this ship for most the game until the last area where you are in some biosphere which is still pretty dark and not much real scenery. You have to dodge obstacles and fight enemies using button sequences displayed on the screen which, I was hoping for a more hands on feel with the fighting like mirrors edge. The obstacles can be challenging at times though which i think is the best part of the game, I believe they are randomly generated so you never really know what to expect around the next corner. It could be several traps one after another or just empty long boring hallways. You also get to become a Warewolf at certain points
which I didnt really understand and it makes it twice as hard to see. There are a few modes to choose from including Story, Arcade and Multiplayer, I have yet to experience the Multiplayer tho because no one is ever hosting. I attempted to host to see what it was like but no one ever joined so Multiplayer is dead from the start, I think the leaderboards serve a better purpose. Arcade mode allows you to play any level for time, score, or distance and is all randomly generated, and Story is just that, a story, and the map isn't random. So if you die, youll experience the same trap or enemies until you pass them and get to the next chekpoint.
The game is also supposed to be oculus supported but since I don't own one I don't know much about this part. I did however decide to read up on it a bit and apparently there is a huge fear of motion sickness in this game since there are scenes where you lose control of the player and the game takes over. I have heard that it can cause a lot of people to get headaches and sick and is even listed as a bad idea in the "Things NOT to do" Oculus dev guide. I thought it may seem like a good idea to play a game like this in VR at first but most people are saying no.
As far as the controls, They are very simple. Youre character runs by itself so there is no need to move yourself forward, You will only have to strafe left or right or jump or slide to dodge the obstacles. Fighting enemies requires that you follow a button sequence displayed on screen which is always a combitnation of the same keys just in a different order.
I haven't had any crashes with the game or errors from what I have played and I've played every level.
Now wether I recommend this game or not, Im still on the fence about it. It's fun to play for about 20 min but I personally get bored with it very quickly. If you like a challenge and you like running games it may be for you. The price tag runs at $10 and Im not sure its really worth that considering Multiplayer is dead from the start and the levels are really dark and mostly tunnels. I know its a space ship but I would have hoped for better lighting at least.
All in All im gonna rate it at a 6/10. Hopefully the next game to come out like this will be on a planet or somewhere with some actual scenery and lighting.

Infinity Runner is a frenetic action game where you get to be a runner in a tunnel. That's the best way I found to describe it. In the menu you have that typical console message "press start" which concerns me. To be truly honest throughout the gameplay I always felt I was playing on a console or a mobile device. Infinity Runner has a simple concept, do the right thing at the right time and that's not enough for me. The "Stunning Graphics" are not stunning at all to say the least.

I tried to look out for the best in this game but it's truly difficult, the script is poor, the voice over bad and gameplay just... non-existent. It doesn't do any justice for the PC Gaming.

Pros
- if you like it straightforward, Infinity Runner is just that
- it's intense, it gets to a point where you have to focus a lot, it's challenging

Cons
- the graphics, maybe I wouldn't point this out but as it's listed "Stunning Graphics" I have to say, no, they're not
- pressing the right key at the right time while collecting what seems to be useless files, not enough for me
- it feels like a poorly done title, cheap, rushed for consoles, basically a port

First impressions: (might update update this if I have time)

I played for 20-30 minutes so far. The gameplay consists of a string of quick time events. But it is really cool so far. What can I say? It has Werewolves! in SPACE!!

(optional let's play footage) lol we all posted videos, guess I get the leftover view right? =D
http://youtu.be/2alrnFP6HME
Tip; as soon you boot up the game for the first time rebind jump to space and slide to Ctrl or your preferred FPS crouching key. You might find that you die a lot less from pressing the wrong button this way. They made some weird choices for some of the default key bindings.

Okay funniest thing, if you don't look left or right to turn at corners your character will run straight into the wall 'THWACK!' and your dead lol. Yes you lose a life and have to go back to the last checkpoint. But the fact that you can kill yourself by stupidly running into walls is pretty amusing.

Yes the game has repetitive elements e.g. the same looking obstacles multiple times. However I think the pacing makes up for this. The player character is constantly running and only stops at the end of a stage or to take down enemies in quick time animations. The game definitely can become frustrating. You make the right action to avoid obstacles i.e. some can only be slid under while others you must leap over. If you accidentally jump for example when you should have slid you can't undo that action and you hit the obstacle. A lot of the obstacles are insta-death. I chewed through my lives dying repeatedly at the same spot and had to restart stages from the beginning several times. But I wouldn't go as far as to say that the game is unfair. You just need to think fast. And if you want you can change the difficulty to easy if you wish (I didn't try that though). It would be nice if the game paused when it gives you tutorial tips because by time I processed them it was too late and I died in the obstacle. Lastly it was exciting when I first transformed into a werewolf.

The graphics aren't 'AAA' standard but the game looks good. I liked the music. The dialogue from the holo-chick or whatever she is got a little bit annoying at times especially when you hear the same thing again and again because you have to repeat a stage several times. But surprisingly I later found that some of the dialogue was actually funny (intentionally).

Utter disappointment.

The game concept is pretty easy to get a grasp of. Automatically run down a corridor dodging obstacles by hitting buttons at the right time. Left and Right to dodge left and right, click to jump, right click to slide, look left or right to turn down a corridor. Sounds simple enough in theory, right?

You'll quickly begin to notice problems when the environment starts falling apart on you. While the asthetics are cool to look at, the different chatoic elements often leave you with no way to reasonably discern what button to hit until it's too late. It turns the game from a fun, adrenaline fueled thrill ride into a frusturating chore of trial and error.

The particular bit that sticks out in my mind was where you ripline past two droids that are firing at you. The second droid gets in your way, and you have to drop off the ripline and slide under it. However, you can't slide until you've hit the ground, and it's really hard to tell when you've hit the ground in this game because of your extreme forward momentum and the first person perspective. It took several tries to figure out what percise moment to hit the button, again through trial and error.

This combines with controls that just aren't responsive enough. I have a pretty good gaming PC, and I turned my quality way down, and it still felt like their was a slight delay on every button press. It wouldn't be so bad if you wern't going so fast.

Another person might be able to look past these flaws and get immersed in the experience. For me, the above issues consistently ruined my immersion. If you want a good runner game, check out TEC 3001. Aside form the simpler graphics, it does everything this game does 10x better.

It isn't a bad game, but it in't close to being something that I like. They took a mobile phone game and put it on the PC......... Why would you do this first off, that says enough but lets say more. This game has, and had, the potential to be an amazing game. They could've made a Mirrors edge type deal with this game and they failed to see this. I for one love the idea of werewolves so I hopped in the game as soon as it came out and I am dissappointed. Like I said again it isn't good but ti isn't a bad game. OVER ALL MY SCORE FOR THIS GAME IS A 5

A good runner game mechanics wise and has a decent story mode to boot, but the game has some very annoying porblems. Input lag is the first you'll run into and is prevelant through out the game, but once you're aware of it you can play around it. More seriously is in the later levels the FPS drops nearly into the single digits in some sections. This should not happen in a game that looks like its from mid-way through the PS2 era using a newer computer (less than a year old.) The framerate dorp mixed with the input lag makes the later stage diffficult and frustrating in the extreme to complete. Furthermore, I've had issues with falling through the level and running through obstacles but not taking damage or dying in the last few stages.

Edit: Also found an encounter on the last level that is literally impossible to get past at current framerates (even with everything set to lowest settings.) A guard will de-cloak right on top of you, killing you before you can re-act to any prompt. I even jump past him on one encounter, but the game dragged me back to the spot and killed me instantly. As I said, very bugged in the later levels.

This game is a testiment to alot of things killing modern gaming. Everything is based on reaction time, down to even combat using quick-time actions. I found this game extremely unappealing and I would not recommend this to any of my friends.
