Mobile Platformer Axle Nominated for a Geekie, Out Today

/ Aug 16th, 2014 No Comments

Axle

Fallstreak Studio‘s mobile platforer Axle is available today in the Google Play store.

Axle started out its life as a small project that won first place in the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers’ Gamesig Intercollegiate Showcase. The early success of the game led Fallstreak to take its game to Kickstarter in late 2012. Even in early stages, the game was fun to play and showed a great deal of promise.

The Kickstarter for Axle ended in November of 2012 and raised over $20,000 of its initial $15,000 goal. And with the game available to players now, Fallstreak has more cause for celebration. Axle has been nominated for a 2014 Geekie Award alongside such notable games as The Banner Saga, Outlast, Don’t Starve and Octodad. The awards ceremony takes place on Aug. 17.

Set in a mechanical world full of gears and machines, Axle tasks players with moving clockwise and counterclockwise rather than the traditional up, down, left and right of most platformers. Moving through a toy shop, an estate, a factory and more, Axle will work his way through many contraptions and use his unique power to repair them. Utilizing a hand-painted art style and an electro-swing soundtrack, the world of Axle comes to life in players’ hands with easy-to-use touch controls.

Axle is available for $1.99 on Android devices.

Quick Take

When we had a chance to talk with Axle’s game designer Liz Fiacco during the game’s Kickstarter period, it was clear that a lot of passion was going into development. Fallstreak was growing as a studio and the early recognition for Axle was promising. To see the game nominated along popular console and PC releases is definitely impressive and a testament to how intuitive and fun Axle can be.
