Axis Football v3.0 is now live!

Hi, Folks!

Thanks for the continued support and feedback! We've releaved v3.0 which should address a lot of the issues you've seen.

  • Added achievements to the game!
  • Fixed the issue where the players would tap the ball into the air over and over and gather around it. It looked like hot potato, and while it was funny, it wasn't very simulation football.
  • Fixed the issue with the music playing when it should not.
  • Adjusted the kicker's position on kickoffs so he actually kicks the ball
  • Fixed some QB/RB handoff interactions
  • Fixed some roster errors with attributes being too high/low
  • Fixed a bug that was causing the accelerated clock to stop working on AI vs AI matches
  • Fixed an error with the player editor where the discipline attribute wasn't getting set properly

We'll continue to address bugs as they pop up! Thanks for your feedback!

Axis Football 2018 v2.9 is now live!


Again, thank you for your continued bug reports and feedback. We will continue to put out patches to refine gameplay and fix issues!

v2.9 Changes:

  • Fixed several bugs with penalties and changes in posession. Previously, there were a few edge cases where penalties occured during turnovers or other changes of possession that canceled out the turnover/CoP. These have been fixed.
  • Adjusted when the AI will call TOs (they were calling them a bit too early before)
  • Teams will no longer wait to snap the ball (i.e., run out the clock) if they're losing at the end of the game. This was a slight error in the logic that wasn't taking into account AI vs AI games)
  • The clock will no longer run when exiting out of defensive audibles
  • Fixed a bug that was causing the cursor to be hidden when opening the depth chart from the playbook window
  • Fixed some of the logic for the "Ask Mike" feature when selecting defenses on 4th down and during PAT
  • The user can no longer let the clock run down indefinitely when they are on defense by not selecting a play

Thanks for everyone's patience and continued support!

Our Story

We are a tiny, dedicated indie team, motivated by the lack of sim football options and determined to deliver a customizable football simulation with a deep franchise mode and dynamic gameplay. Our budget for the 2018 game was about $15,000, and the majority of that came from sales from Axis Football 2017. 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!
