Filipino indie developer Keybol Games and publisher Another Indie released a teaser trailer for Jack Axe.
Co-developed by Keybol Games and Mike Studios, Jack Axe is a 2D side-scrolling action-adventure platformer coming to Switch in 2019. According to the developers, the game takes place “in a vibrant open world inspired by Filipino and Norse mythology.” You can also go on an open world adventure exploring and solving puzzles in a 2D landscape. In addition, Jack Axe can be played solo or in multiplayer coop mode while controlling Jack and her sisters.
Another Indie co-founder Iain Garner also expresses confidence on the game being on par quality-wise with Celeste and Super Meat Boy.
“(Everyone at Another Indie) played it, we started using the axe mechanic, whizzing around, bouncing off walls; the end result was like, ‘this game is up there,’ which you know is an absolute testament to Bari’s ingenuity,” Garner said. “We’re big fans of Super Meat Boy and Celeste, and we think Jack Axe has the same level of quality.”
