2007 November 16 - Reflexive Entertainment and the Axiom Corporation have revealed specifications for its Orbital Thrust Frame. Players are already eagerly anticipating piloting the vehicle through the unique physical environment within our deep space mining colony AF128.
“The OTF is a powerful, resilient, and uniquely versatile vehicle,” said Dr. D.C. Looper, Lead Engineer in charge of developing the vehicles’ on board control systems. “We know our job is done when pilots can’t even tell that there is a system helping interpret their control inputs. Many test subjects have reported that the OTF responds as though it is an extension of their own thought process,” he later added.
The built in grapple is a powerful graviton beam, which is used to pick up and manipulate objects within AF128. Pilots develop an innate feel for the momentum and mass within every object they push, crash, smash, carry, and sling through the mine facility.
In preparation for the next wave of hiring on the mining colony AF128, and in response to the flood of applications already received, the Axiom Corporation is honing in on the first wave of exceptional applicants who will be chosen to pilot the limited number of OTFs available.
For further information about the Axiom Corporation’s OTF design, and up-coming opportunities for OTF pilots, please read the documentation available on www.axiomoverdrive.com.
