Reflexive Entertainment (creators of one of my personal favorties, Wik: Fable of Souls) can be seen discussing the joys of independent game development in the video clip from X-Play below. And if you look closely you'll also get a look at Axiom Overdrive in action (albeit for a very short snip). Take a look and let the speculation regarding this game's true nature recommence.

Axiom: Overdrive maintains a high level of mystery as of yet. Luckily, Reflexive Entertainment has been kind enough to give us some new screens of the game. Then I realized that I had asked Russell Carroll (Director of Marketing, Reflexive Entertainment, Inc.) some brief questions about the game back in October that I never had the chance to post. Between the screens and the mini-interview we might just be able to piece together what this game is all about.
So, enjoy the screens now and (intentionally cryptic and vague) answers to my questions after the break. Then, let me know what you think about this game's potential in the comments.
The Independent Games Festival Competition has announced their finalists for 2008. Among the the joyous few is Reflexive Entertainment and their latest XBLA title Axiom Overdrive. Their game has been nominated in the Technical Excellence category amongst four others, two of them with the word "goo" in the title. Tough competition I'm sure.
You may (or may not) remember that IGF is how I originally discovered Axiom Overdrive, so it's only fitting that the game should continue it's ride toward IGF success. Best of luck to Refexive and the Axiom team!
Of course, the rest of the nominees can be found here. Let me just call attention to the list now and ask that all those making portfolio decisions for Xbox Live Arcade (you know who you are) take time to really look at these finalists. I don't want another Everyday Shooter slipping through the cracks. That is all.

A short time ago we broke the story that Reflexive Entertainment (Wik: Fable of Souls)was hard at work on their latest XBLA game. That game, Axiom: Overdrive, now has a fully functioning site (as promised before) and gives us a better look at the game. Go check it out and sign up for the sweepstakes too. Dunno what you might win, but free stuff is always a good thing. Or if you'd prefer to work for what you get, apply for a job (hope you have mining experience).
And in case you didn't believe us when we announced the game, the official announcement of the game's existence is after the break.

Yet another discovery I made while browsing the IGF entries was the identity of Reflexive Entertainment's next XBLA game. Reflexive was responsible for the game Ricochet Lost Worlds on the original Xbox version of XBLA and also for Wik: Fable of Souls (a personal favorite). As a result of their high standing in my esteem, I was intrigued when I saw their name amongst the IGF entries. And thus, I set out to do some internet Matlocking, and I struck gold.
Long story short: Axiom: Overdrive will be Reflexive Entertainment's next XBLA title, and it's coming in "Winter 2007". Want to know how I cracked the code? Want to know more about Axiom: Overdrive? Hit the Jump.
