THE FIRST 5 MINUTES OF THE GAME
When you begin the game you are free falling through a storm. Lightning sporadically illuminates the sky, showing brief, vivid flashes of memories. Your memories. You struggle to take a breath as you plummet, out of control, into the eye of the storm, towards your certain death. Squinting, eyelashes battling the rain, you catch a glimpse of a large object that you are hurtling towards. You brace yourself for impact, for death, confused and terrified and –
You are on the deck of a ship, rain pummelling the wooden boards around you. You look up to see four shadowy figures on the bridge, gazing into the distance, with an old man at the helm.
Psychological Adventure with Exploration & Puzzle elements: Interact with cryptic logic puzzles, make psychological decisions and explore memories to unlock the secrets of your identity.
Harness the abilities of Elysia: Discover new powers that will assist exploration and puzzle solving by phasing, building, destroying or corrupting.
Unique visual style: There is a beautifully simplistic emphasis on striking shapes, strong colors, and beautiful effects and lighting to elicit a variety of emotions within The Elysia.

Soul Axiom is an intriguing production, you are going through an unknown world, solving puzzles, and over time you learn more and more. Riddles include, among others. Splitting objects and "merging" them back into one. It is good from the beginning. A few hours passed and I felt tired. I should have come back sometime, but I do not know when that will happen.
If you enjoy surreal cyberpunk worlds that favor art over everything else, you will enjoy Soul Axiom. If not you might want to go somewhere else. Soul Axiom is a first person puzzle game where you have to wander and explore in order to figure out where to go and what to do next. The puzzles will leave you scratching your head and feel like a genius if you solve them, emphasis on if. These puzzles are by no means easy and will more than likely make you want to find an online walkthrough, but dumb luck can also help. The story of Soul Axiom is definitely there, but it is either hidden extremely well or it is just impossible to understand, but the focus is on the art direction of the game. It is not graphically intense and might not look as technologically impressive as other games, but it more than makes up for it with beautiful art direction. Do not go into Soul Axiom expecting the next big blockbuster game, but do expect a fun and challenging puzzle game with an art style that will never get old.
