Axiom Verge aiming for new platforms beyond tomorrow's PC release

Axiom Verge is set to arrive on PC tomorrow and on Vita in the near future. But that's not the final step for creator Tom Happ and business partner Dan Adelman. They're aiming to spread Athetos' reach further, as indicated in today's Reddit AMA.


After spending a month on PlayStation 4, Axiom Verge is ready to expand its horizons by hitting PC tomorrow. But if creator Tom Happ and business partner Dan Adelman have anything to say about it, that won't be the game's final destination.

The duo jumped on Reddit today for an AMA. Among the subjects addressed are the game's retro design, its many secrets, and the upcoming Vita version. Adelman also made sure to note that there are plans to bring Axiom Verge to more platforms, with the Nintendo 3DS on their wish list.

"Because Axiom Verge was part of Sony's pub fund, there's an exclusivity window," Adelman explained. "Once that's up, we want to bring it to all of the consoles. As an ex-Nintendo employee and Metroid fan, I'm personally dying to play this on my New 3DS."

Axiom Verge is a big favorite on Shacknews, with our review pegging it as one of the best games of the year, so far. PC users will get to experience the game for themselves tomorrow when it hits Steam. The game's Vita version is also still in the works, with Adelman noting that Happ is waiting on tools from Sony before proceeding further.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
