  • Picking names for the game's enemies is a somewhat difficult task. A good name should be something that triggers instant recognition of the creature for any player. I'm curious if you guys can guess what creatures are in the list below, just by the names I have chosen. NOTE: This is not a complete list!

    In no particular order:

    • Armadillo
    • Scissor-Beak (red, blue, green)
    • Hanging Trapjaw
    • Sudran Squid
    • Spider Imp
    • Sea Sponge (gold and green)
    • Urchin
    • Mothmite (Baby and Adult)
    • Greenworm (Baby and Adult)
    • Jellyfish
    • Snail Shell
    • Cuttlefish (two kinds)
    • Ghoul
    • Doughnut (pink and purple) - reccognizable, but terrible name
    • Aztec U.F.O.

    Please feel free to guess and/or make comments and suggestions.

    • Several steps necessary to view the sprite sheets:

      Download fez_unpacker.zip from this thread:

      http://forum.xentax.com/viewtopic.php?f=21&t=9624&hilit=fez_unpacker.zip

      Use XNBDecomp.exe from that archive to batch-decompress the .xmb files from this directory:

      \SteamLibrary\steamapps\common\Axiom Verge\Content\Art\Sprites\Packed\

      Download Tile Molester:

      http://www.zophar.net/utilities/graphutil/tile-molester.html

      Load a decompressed XMB and use the following settings to view the sheet:

      View -> Codec -> 32bpp ABGR (8888)

      View -> Mode -> 2-Dimensional

      Navigate -> Go to... -> Offset 000000BB (colors should appear correct now)

      Use Increase Width button until picture is aligned correctly (large sheets are 128 tiles wide) and Increase Height button to get the whole sheet viewable.

      If all went well you see the sprites properly:

    • Me again;  I just ripped a bunch of resources from the game to be added to the Wiki:

      Axiom_Sprites.zip

      Edit: Added a few more

    • Ah, this is awesome! I like the spritesheets. When I spoke with Tom, he said that the file names were just whatever he came up with to help him remember, and that we should go ahead and name the creatures things that make sense. However, I do see the value in adding the filename to the creature pages, so that they are equated properly.

      [9-24-2015] Somehow they got out of order (I had them alphabetized). Again, this is still up for discussion, so if you don't like something, we can rename it.

      [9-25-2015] Edit 1: Re-alphabetized the whole thing and filled in more names. Also, I found 2 sprites that map to 2 different enemies each, which might explain why our numbers where off.

      [9-26-2015] Filled in remaining names. I need input for a several of these still. Let me know what you think. For like enemies, I still think we should put them on the same page. Example: Page Name=Ghoul with subheadings for "Brown" and "Gray".

    • Very good!  I just got back home, but I will try to give feedback and begin adding them to the database.  This is going to be really fun!

    • I think "Wheel Beast" bothers me the most out of these. It sounds awkward, but what do you call something that is half-dog and half-segway scooter? I would default to the filename, but FlynnStone also seems like a silly parody name. Perhaps there's something we can say about it being an Android/Cyborg?

        Loading editor
    • hmm, yeah it's a tough one...

      Scooter-Wolf?

      Cybordog?

      K9-Roller?

      Burnout?

      Unipup?

      It'll be a while till I get to one.  Gotta brainstorm more...

    • Cybordog is not bad. Or Cyberdog, as a play on Doom's Cyberdemon .

        Loading editor
    • Cyberdog.  Sounds better than the alternatives.  I like it.
