Axiom Verge developer Tom Happ: 'I want to work on this franchise for a very long time'

In Axiom Verge, developer Tom Happ has created what is set to be one of the best indie games of 2015, and he's hopeful that he'll be able to turn the game he developed on his own into a franchise with prequels and sequels exploring its science fiction world.

"I am eager to get started on a sequel to Axiom Verge," Happ told IBTimes UK in an interview. "I don't want to spoil anything for those who haven't played it yet, but the storyline leaves a lot of options for sequels and prequels.

"In fact why am I having more fun with this game then most AAA games I bought this year???"

Probably because the AAA games that everyone love to harp on about have had all development efforts put into graphics while the actual gameplay is an afterthought.

Just look at all the games and how they're praised for "stunning" and "gorgeous" graphics. You never see them praised for stunning gameplay do you? Always how many polygons they're pushing, how realistic they look and a whole lot of garbage that's equally unimportant to the core aspect of video games that makes them a unique medium: gameplay.

I've had a lot more fun with games such as Nuclear Throne & Spelunky than any of these supposed AAA blockbusters that people rave about on N4G.

Is this game really worth $20. I saw a gameplay video of it and was REALLY tempted to get it, but if it's short or something then I don't think I can justify spending $20 on it when I can save that for Witcher 3.

When's the Vita version coming out? I bought the game already, but I'm waiting to play it on Vita. This game has handheld written all over it.

PeaSFor1186d ago

the game is cross-buy(hell yeah!) but the vita release is still tba, sorry.

No. We need more 2D Metroid, not ridiculous shooter Metroid.
