Axis Football 2018 v3.6 is now live!

Hi, folks!

After a little mishap with v3.5, we're happy to annouce that v3.6 is now live! I'm reposting the v3.5 changelog below.

  • Fixed a bug that was preventing drafted players from showing up in the list of available players to trade.
  • Fixed an audio loading asset bundle issue that was sometimes causing the game to freeze up at halftime.
  • Fixed the spelling of 'concussion'
  • The ball will now properly be placed at the 20 after an INT and tackle in the endzone.
  • Touchdowns will no longer be recorded twice when there is a penalty on a scoring play.
  • The AI will call timeouts more appropriately now when under 2 minutes to go in the half.
  • You can now shift your safety left and right on formations that only have 1 safety
  • Catch logic will now take the number of defenders nearby into greater account.
  • Catch logic will now take the stats difference between the reciever and defender into greater account.
  • Catch logic will be based on both catch and awareness for receivers and defenders
  • Defending a pass will be based on both cover and awareness for defenders
  • Kickoffs caught in the endzone or out of the endzone will now be placed at the 25.
  • Punts that go into the endzone will always be placed at the 20.
  • Onside kicks return can now be selected.
  • The clock can now only be accelerated with the "X" button if the play is pre-snap
  • So called "experts" now predict the outcome of your game before it's played. This can be viewed on the game setup screen on the far right tab (new).

Thanks for the 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!
