Summary

ABZÛ 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.

Abzû is the type of wondrous palate cleanser that reminds us of the beauty of video games. When the art director of Flower and Journey, Matt Nava, left thatgamecompany to form a new studio, we could have gotten a knockoff, Mighty No. 9 version of Journey that left us shaking our heads. Instead, Abzû is exactly what fans of Nava’s work were hoping for. A beautiful, emotional journey through some of the best looking environments on the PlayStation 4, Abzû was well worth the wait.

But when you let go of any expectations of emergent behavior, open-world exploration, meaningful narrative, or gameplay, Abzu is still a thrilling once-and-done guided tour full of light, color, and sound. It might not appreciate the vastness of the sea, but it appreciates the magic and the majesty.

Abzu is a testament to where we are with video game development and shows how diverse the medium can and should be, even if it's not quite as emotionally resonant as it perhaps could have been.
