A swimming we will do in Abzu.
Ah, arty martsy, because I best not type that with an f, indie video games are great as they do not follow the usual formula. Not afraid to try other things for the love of the game. A good indie developer do it for the love, the fun, the long hours, the heart attacks and the debilitating stress disorders. I would think all these attributes were present in the making of Abzu. But that is a good thing. Well, hopefully not the heart attacks as if Surgeon Simulator is anything to go by, heart transplants are not easy.
The lesser you know about Abzu, the better!
Yes, the lesser you know the better experience that you will have, so we will not delve to deeply into the game here, but just touch briefly on a few key aspects. And one of those aspects is the beauty of the game. See a couple of screen shots below and watch our video. BUT you must click on the screen shots to see them at the best! Please email me when you have so that I know you have. Don’t disappoint me like get pizza from a local pizza shop that turns out to be crap.
Is Abzu a short play time?
You know, this question does bother me, not just with Abzu but other games. It all depends on the experience you are after. To me it is worth the ask price. 3 hours is the playthrough time for the game, but if you have a heart and emotions you will be touched. More games these days have the ability with the visuals, sound and connectivity to really connect with the player. In my opinion, which you didn’t ask for but I am sharing, games like this should only come out once in a while, this way the impact of the game is felt more. Spec OPS The Line is a great example of how a game can get to you. Spec OPS starts out just like any other 3rd person shooter, but my word it pulls the rug under your feet half way through, and then just continues to rap you up in this rug and be weighted down in an ocean somewhere. Play the game for the experience, not for the price tag. The developers put in so much love and care in ABZU, and the developers must get the profits so that they can continue to make these wonderful games.
Future Released are making games SLOWLY due to money and time restraints, but we want to bring back the old RPG’s from the times yore, so that the wonderment and excitement can be felt again of that time. In fact, head over to HERE, which is basically what Future Released want to accomplish and in a way, how we want to accomplish this.
Buy Abzu, and donate to Future Released!
Yeah but nah, seriously if you want an experience where you can be uninterrupted for a few hours, in a dark room with a set of head phones, you will walk away from this game in a daze. It is pretty good. You can visit our friend HERE to purchase the game, or your usual game shop. Although, our link has the game going at a great price at the moment!
The feels you will feel will include
I was going to put something Shia related, but I didn’t think it would be appropriate.
