The latest giveaway game on Epic’s shiny new Store is Axiom Verge, yours to grab for free for keepsies right now. First released in 2015, Axiom Verge is a metroidvania exploring a glitched-out alien world that may or may not be a computer simulation, a setting it uses to put neat spins on old genre tricks. Good stuff. You’ve got until February 21st to nab it then it’s yours to play until the sun burns out or Epic shut up shop – whichever comes first.
Get a couple of folks from Konami and Nintendo around a table with a few drinks inside them and I’m sure it won’t be long before the argument starts again. “What makes you so damn special?” cries a Konamiac slamming down her flagon (she brings her own) of foamy real ale. “Why do you go first?” A Nintendeer sips cooly from his glowing green cocktail fizzing with dry ice before responding, “Because Castletroid would sound daft.”
Whatever you call ‘em (“action-adventure” seems such a useless term), another’s on its way. Following a debut on PlayThings in March, Axiom Verge [official site] is due on PC on May 14th.
