synopsis (EN)Stand on the brink of discovery in Axiom Verge, a retro-inspired 2D action-exploration game for Wii U. Travel through a hostile alien world, discover scores of weapon and ability upgrades, and unearth your role in a mysterious and compelling sci-fi plot. After destroying an entire research facility on Earth with a failed experiment, rookie scientist Trace awakens in a strange, bio-mechanical world called Sudra. This nightmarish realm is a surreal meld of disturbing, corrupted lifeforms and towering technological structures, left behind by an incredibly advanced alien race long ago. Any sign of peaceful and coherent civilisation has long since abandoned Sudra, but a race of huge, sentient machines known as the Rusalki still reside beneath its surface, protecting the planet from ill-intentioned invaders. Trace quickly learns that the all-knowing Rusalki are slowly fading, and that their destiny is closely intertwined with the fate of the entire universe. Alone, you must run and gun your way through a vast, interconnected world, piecing together a mysterious storyline using the lore scattered across the isolated planet. The Wii U GamePad puts the world map in the palm of your hands at all times, helping you to navigate through nine labyrinthine, interlocking areas filled with secrets, surprises and huge, hideous boss battles. Axiom Verge is heavily inspired by the exploratory nature of classic adventure games from the 16-bit era. At the start of your journey, large parts of the map will be inaccessible, but by finding new items you’ll be able to drill deep into the bedrock, swing across chasms and even teleport through walls, opening up all-new possibilities. Assemble a range of unique and varied weapons to fight off the grotesque, violent monsters that call Sudra home. Lock and load the electrifying Kilver and devastate enemies at close range with a huge blast of lightning, or fire bouncing projectiles off of walls with the Reflector weapon. With over 20 wildly different upgradeable weapons to discover, you can mix up your play style and take the fight to the enemy however you like.
