In praise of Axiom Verge and game glitches

Raspberry Pi
 2021-07-22

Cover picture for the articleIn keeping with my place in the industry as someone who loves retro and doesn’t keep up well with the times, I’ve just finished Axiom Verge – a Metroidvania that people were absolutely rhapsodic about in 2015, and for jolly good reason. There’s a lot of reasons to praise the game, from it being such a detailed love letter to the likes of Metroid and Bionic Commando and various other NES titles to its genuinely interesting paradoxical plot and world build, but the best thing to me was how happy it was to let you, the player, feel like you were tearing the entire game apart.
