FACT GUIDE – ELYSIA, THE SOUL AND THE DIGITAL AFTERLIFE
ELYSIA – Take your first steps to paradise by uploading your soul to Elysia, named by critics as “the single most important development in the history of the human race” (Era Magazine, 2027). As the latest state of the art Digital Soul Provider, Elysia is a sprawling server where your memories and dreams become reality. Our patented SoulSync system allows you to choose the memories you want to enjoy for eternity; whether you are a living user or you simply wish to leave a lasting testament of your life that the whole family can relive at their leisure. In Elysia, death has no dominion. In Elysia, life has no boundaries. Cast off your mortal shackles and discover the secret to immortality in your digital afterlife.
WHAT IS A SOUL? – A soul is the name of an invisible part of you – something that everyone has – that defines you, is unique, and is a product of your experiences and memories. In some religions the soul lives on after you die, in heaven or hell, depending on whether you’ve been good or bad in your life.
IS ELYSIA HEAVEN? – No! Elysia isn’t a form of heaven. We use the word “Soul” to refer to digital copies of human beings, which are created during the person’s lifetime and formed from their memories, personal preferences and distinct personality traits. These Souls are stored in the Elysia Server and are activated when the person dies. People are comforted by the fact that a part of them will live on and support their loved ones after they are gone, regardless of whether they believe in a conventional religion or not.
ARE THESE SOULS REAL? – They are as real as you perceive them to be. As exact copies of their human counterparts, it is difficult to tell the difference between them – but technically, they are made up of strings of data created by our talented programmers and nothing more. Their worth, or how they compare to “true” human beings, is the subject of much debate.

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.
• Compelling storyline: A tense, but thought-provoking narrative with multiple outcomes, and leaves you yearning to explore all avenues of the lore.
• Dynamic adaptive environments: Use your abilities to manipulate your surrounding environments. Collect your powers and re-visit memories to unlock previously hidden areas.

• Atmospheric soundtrack: Provides the perfect musical backdrop which subtly enhances the game through well-crafted association with the memories you explore.
“Soul Axiom is an unsettling and compelling techno/cyber-thriller, with a killer visual style that matches its high-concept premise.”
“It really is beautiful, nailing a Tron-like neon cyberspace feel … It’s atmospherically creepy without relying on dripping meathooks or lunging monsters.”

“It’s an enjoyably slick addition to the so-called “walking simulator” genre, and I’m fascinated to see what it adds next, and where its increasingly strange story eventually ends up.”
