Switch Port Report: Abzu

Four years ago, I was in dire straits as a Wii U owner. The console was flopping, Nintendo couldn't move units, and developers who all seemed to be on board at the beginning were nowhere to be seen. Many, many quality experiences passed me ...

Abzu developer cites 'challenges' on porting to Switch

Depending on who you talk to, the process of porting any game is wildly different. Some have a hell of a time and give up, others are able to do it with little to no effort. With the Switch we usually get tales of the latter case but in the...

May's PS Plus lineup is somewhat decent

Seeing as how Microsoft set the bar pretty low level for May's Games with Gold, I guess Sony didn't need to do much to top them. While you could argue that the games on offer for Xbox One and 360 are better than this list, at least there ar...

Underwater adventure Abzu out this week on Xbox One

This year, Giant Squid gave us a lovely and at times unabashedly whimsical underwater adventure game. I keep taking on any scrap of news I can as a blatant excuse to plaster its art here. But maybe you're well aware of Abzu already and you'...

Review: Abzu

I spoke at length about my underwater-gaming-anxiety when I previewed Abzû, so actually reviewing it was something I approached with apprehension. But this week, my day job was five straight days of grueling-ass landscaping that invol...

Here's a beautiful look at the beginning of Abzu

Abzu is a game that we've had our eyes on for a long time. It's the debut from Giant Squid, a studio with instant clout as it's made up of key members from the team that made Journey. Abzu and Journey share a lot of the same qual...

ABZU is scuba-Journey, coming out in August

Is there enough underwater exploration in your life? For most of us, the answer will be a dejected "no", and for us, Giant Squid's new game ABZÛ may go at least some way towards filling that void. A new trailer was debuted j...

Abzu is beautiful and terrifying

Water levels have long been met with a combination of derision and dread. Plummeting into the depths in platformers over the years has lead to some incredible memories, but control and pacing issues often elicit a groan from players who wan...

Journey art director's next game goes deep under the sea

Decades of classical conditioning have trained us to abhor water levels. The likes of Super Mario Bros., Sonic the Hedgehog 2, and Ocarina of Time hold strained memories of great games gone awry, if just ever-so-temporarily. We're Pavl...
