Abzu

Abzû

The first project by Giant Squids, an independent studio founded by Matt Nova – the artistic director of the extremely successful game called Journey, created for PlayStation consoles. Abzu is an interactive exploration production in which you reveal secrets of a lively underworld. The player assumes the role of a cat-like diver who delves into the ocean and meets schools of fish, groups of aquatic mammals, as well as some other truly majestic creatures and remnants of an ancient civilization. Abzu offers a fluid control system which enables you to perform underwater pirouettes, flips, and gives you a chance to ride sea creatures, such as a shark. Sometimes, getting to a place requires a skillful use of available abilities or solving a logic puzzle. Yet, Abzu puts a strong emphasis on its artistic value. Therefore, the game enchants players with a riot of colors, an abundance of diverse underwater life, and amazing special effects.
