About The Pathless

About this game

Go on a journey with Giant Squid’s The Pathless.

A Mythical Journey

The Pathless, brought to light by the creators of ABZÛ, engages players in a mythical adventure of an archer and an eagle traversing a vast forest. The premise revolves around an archery master known as the Hunter, who embarks on a quest to a mystical island to eradicate the world from a darkness curse. The game heavily emphasises the bond between the Hunter and the eagle, enabling soaring flights and dramatic archery.

A Lush Open World

The game unfolds in an expansive open world, teeming with hidden secrets and stunning landscapes, from misty forests and lush meadows to snowy tundras. Alongside exploring, players unravel the ominous history of the island, solve ancient puzzles, and uncover long-forgotten secrets, providing a rich, immersive gaming experience.

Battle The Corrupted Spirits

The forest is home to enormous corrupted spirits. Players must utilise their skills to hunt these creatures, while also ensuring they do not become the hunted. Epic battles against these cursed beasts are the key to restoring light to the land, with the bond with your eagle and the fate of the world delicately hanging in the balance.

It's pretty fun! The gameplay loop can get stale after a couple hours, but I loved the visuals! Get it on sale if the gameplay looks fun to you!

Atmospheric and fun action-adventure game, more of a puzzle gameplay wise. High production values and nice story.

This game exceeded my expectations. I loved ABZU so when I saw the devs had a new game I was excited. The game is so fast paced and exploration is just tons of fun. The story is a little cliche, but the relationship between the Hunter and the eagle is pretty cool. I definitely recommend this game, especially on sale its a no brainer.

The gameplay is very smooth and its a fun time moving across the world. The artstyle is unique and refreshing and the soundtrack with the aesthetics makes this a pleaser. Cutscenes aren't skippable though and while there are some fun unique puzzles, there are a lot of recycled puzzles across the game. Recycled puzzles are necessarily bad but completionists will get bored eveuntually.
