Axis Football 2017 v3.3 Patch Notes

Hi, folks!

First, I owe everyone an apology for the v3.0 update. The crashes and stability issues were totally my fault. I didn't test well enough, and a lot of you were simply unable to play the game for about a week. That's unacceptable, and I've put policies and procedures in place to make sure that doesn't happen again.

Second, I'm happy to report that after a ton of digging (and coffee), the team was able to find and fix the problems. Axis Football 2017 v3.3 is now live on Steam and should have the crashes fixed.

Third, if you are still experiencing issues with Franchise Mode not loading correctly (or your game does happen to crash), please send the Output_Log.txt file directly to my email address:

You can find the output log here:

C:\Users\<your user name>\AppData\LocalLow\Axis Games\Axis Football 2017

Finally, if you happened to have purchsed the game in the past week, I owe you an additional apology on top of the first. Your inital experience with the game should not have been a frustrating attempt to play a game that you paid money for. So, I am truly sorry for that. Our users and fans are extremely important to us, and it is not our habit to release unplayable, unstable, or overly buggy games. You deserve better than that.

I will wrap up by humbly requesting that any negative reviews made as a result of the v3.0 update be reconsidered if the new version is a game that you would recommend to friends. Ratings and reviews are a driving force for sales, and those are very important to us as we attempt to reinvest and improve the Axis Football series.

Thanks for all the support,

Danny Jugan

Our Story

We are a tiny, dedicated indie team, motivated by the lack of sim football options and determined to deliver a customizable football sim with a deep franchise mode and dynamic gameplay. Our budget for the 2017 game was about $10,000, and the majority of that came from sales from Axis Football 2016. Our small team works on this game during nights (and often early mornings) and weekends, relying on our day jobs to sustain our families and our passion for sim football gaming and the support of the community to continue to improve the Axis Football franchise.

The Future of Axis Football

Axis Football has come a long way in three years, but it's certainly not where we want it to be in terms of graphics and depth of features. We made huge strides from last year and have even bigger plans for what we can accomplish next year. Your purchase and support of this game helps to make those plans a reality. We heavily reinvest back into the game, and we hope that is evident with the progress we've made. We plan to release annual versions of the game with improvements to graphics, animations, features, and more! Let us know what you'd like to see in the game, and share Axis Football with your friends! Find us on Twitter @AxisFootball or Facebook at
