I make worlds with words and lines.

Who am I?

I'm but a projection of the soul, a conjecture of the mind, a reflection of the heart.

Where did I come from?

What matters is where I go.

What is my purpose?

To make this world a better place than it was, before I was born, even if only, a little.

What happens when I die?

There's only one way to find out, but I'm in no hurry, we'll all get there eventually, so, I'll enjoy my time here meanwhile and hopefully help others do the same.

ABZÛ is an artistic exploration game set somewhere under the sea. Not going to spoil what your objective is.

What I liked.
  • Graphics. Beautiful, stylish, colourful and majestic are some of the words that come to mind.
  • Music. Subtle most of the time, but then, out of nowhere it syncs with the visual and you're suddenly having a live orchestra on your screen. A great orchestra, to be precise.
  • Story There's no dialogue or text. That doesn't mean there is no story, but, it varies depending on your personal experience in the game and your own interpretation.
  • Controls. Fluid, not that hard considering I have no experience with other flying / swimming games.
  • Gameplay. It offers some more things than just diving and swimming, but, don't expect it to be an action hack and slash.

What I disliked.
  • Content. It's a little short, but then, you aren't supposed to rush it, but take your time exploring, I guess that's why they didn't implement a map.
  • Gameplay. Most exploration games include some way to indicate the player where it has previously been, I don't know why there's nothing like that here, but, it made the exploration feel too vast or tedious, in some points.

To conclude, ABZÛ is a gorgeous exploration game with a cryptic story and some fine moments, but, has some design flaws, that, while understandable from an immersive experience (no UI), still, become a chore to players that like to complete these sorts of games without looking at a guide or swimming in circles for hours.
