FilmGamesEtc - "Axiom Verge, a solo Indie project headed by Tom Happ, is essentially this generation’s Metroid. Metroidvania has become a game genre of its own and gaining popularity in the last couple of years. Tom Happ hopes that Axiom Verge will stand out from the crowd. Everything you see, hear, and do in this game is done by Happ. What was once a weekend project five years ago now becomes one of the most amazing Indie games to date. Sony funded the game via their Sony Pub Fund, which allows independent developers to get the funds they need in advance in exchange for a timed exclusivity for their platforms. The game will also be coming to PC as well. While the PS Vita version’s release is a few months away, but cross play will be possible between the PS4 and Vita versions."
