“A beautiful underwater adventure that evokes the dream of diving. Immerse yourself in a vibrant hidden world bursting with color and life as you descend into the heart of the ocean. But beware as you swim deeper as dangers lurk in the depths.”
“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”
A B Z Û is an epic descent into the depths of the sea, where players will
explore beautifully rendered ocean environments with fluid swimming
controls. The experience draws inspiration from the deep innate
narrative that we all carry within our subconscious: the story of ABZÛ
is a universal myth that resonates across cultures. The name references a
concept from the oldest mythologies; it is the combination of the two
ancient words AB, meaning ocean, and ZÛ, meaning to know. ABZÛ is the ocean of wisdom.
Drew something from Jack’s playthrough of Abzu! Man is this game
ABZUlutely beautiful! Like holy crap that whale part killed me from how
majestic they look. The colors in the areas is what I love and the
transition from one to the other is like….DAYUM! My favorite animal
from the game so far are the manatees. They so cute!
I love Journey and Abzu, and it’s my personal headcanon that the two ancient civilizations existed at the same time and had contact.
While the Journey people didn’t seem godless, the Abzu people seemed way more into gods and religion.
Also, it’s obvious that the Journey people had a civil war over recourses, but it isn’t as clear what happened to the Abzu people because we only see one person using a war machine. I like to think a leader of the Abzu people saw the Journey people fighting and decided to control the Abzu people’s recourses to try and prevent it happening to them, but turned into a dictator and things just went downhill from there.
I know the ancients in Journey have white faces, but I think it might be because they’re spirits because they seem to have black faces in the murals.
