2K's Axel and Pixel revealed

ESRB outs man and dog puzzler.

2K Games is making an Xbox 360 game called Axel and Pixel, where an artist and dog must solve puzzles together.

"This is a 'point-and-click' adventure game in which players guide an artist and his dog through surreal and abstract environments," says the ESRB listing. "Players must solve environmental puzzles that include redirecting a ray of light, throwing rocks at birds, and spraying water at a creature.

"In one scene, a rat creature jumps into a toilet, causing brown liquid to splash out."

Contrary to popular belief, Mafia II maker 2K Czech is not the studio at the wheel; Silver Wish Games, the publisher told Joystiq, is in charge.
