“We are excited about Axel&Pixel for its simple yet deep gameplay. The art is breathtaking and the surreal sense of humor catches you by surprise,” said Christoph Hartmann, president of 2K. "All of these elements combined offer a fresh experience that truly embodies the concept of‘games as art’.”
Axel&Pixel was developed by Silver Wish Games and utilizes a simple point-and-click interface. Players lead Axel the artist and his dog Pixel through 24 levels of stylized photo collage environments where they encounter nature-inspired characters like the Ice Giant, his mischievous rat apprentice and other motley inhabitants of the Dream World. Along their journey, the duo will scale majestic mountains, build rafts to cross treacherous rivers, and fly away in a hot air balloon through the Dream World.
In addition to assisting Axel and Pixel on their adventures, players can race vehicles in Arcade Mode and post high scores to the online leaderboard. Brave explorers will also discover bonus items, including dog bones, sketches and paint tubes hidden throughout the Dream World that give Axel the tools and inspiration to complete his finest work of art.
