Axiom Verge developer Thomas Happ revealed that the PC version of the game on Steam and Epic Games Store has received a hardcore mode called Randomizer. So far only in beta, but still.
Randomizer Mode is developed by members of the speedrunner community. They created everything they needed themselves and contacted Thomas to add it to the game on official rights. This mode randomly scatters the upgrades required to advance through the locations. Thomas offered the enthusiasts a reward, but they refused.
How hardcore the Randomizer is can be understood by the name of the modes:
- Beginner – for those who completed the game several times, but only slightly changes the arrangement of objects
- Advanced – for speedrunners
- Masochist – for those who have fully studied the game
At the same time, Axiom Verge was released six years ago.
