About ABZU

About this game

From the art director of Journey® and Flower®, ABZÛ is a beautiful underwater adventure that evokes the dream of diving.

Immerse yourself in a vibrant ocean world full of mystery and bursting with color and life. Perform fluid acrobatics as the Diver using graceful swimming controls. Discover hundreds of unique species based on real creatures and form a powerful connection with the abundant sea life. Interact with schools of thousands of fish that procedurally respond to you, each other, and predators. Linger in epic seascapes and explore aquatic ecosystems modeled with unprecedented detail. Descend into the heart of the ocean where ancient secrets lie forgotten. But beware, dangers lurk in the depths. "ABZÛ" is from the oldest mythologies; AB, meaning water, and ZÛ, meaning to know. ABZÛ is the ocean of wisdom.

"Gorgeous and invigorating, Abzû flounders a bit with a hamfisted story, but there’s still nothing quite like it on the PC."

Phantom
The game is amazing. It's like "Journey" but under water. Teh graphics are nice, I really like the style and design of the animals, the surroundings, the little character you are playing. The controlls are nice and work fairly well. Moving in water is almost always difficult and very often it feels more like a chore but Abzu managed to work that out pretty well. Abzu tells its story in a very cautious manner, it's not "in your face" but for you to discover if you want to. I like how the shark accompanies you throughout the game and how your "relationship" changes towards the end. Exploring is greatly encouraged and also very rewarding. I spent so many extra minutes just swimming around and looking into each and every corner without ever being disappointed. One playthrough takes about 2 hours so you have to judge te price for yourself.
