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.
We'll see what 2K Games has to say.
