Delve Deep with Indie Developer ACE Team in Abyss Odyssey
Abyss Odyssey is a downward journey into the depths of the unknown. Developed by ACE Team (Zeno Clash series, Rock of Ages), Abyss Odyssey is dripping with Art Nouveau style. In the game, three warriors are available to challenge the titular abyss: the bold Katrien, the tortured specter Ghost Monk, and the ethereal Pincoya. But no matter how powerful these warriors get, their descent is a circular trip – the action adventure of Abyss Odyssey is infinitely replayable.
The side-scrolling levels never play out the same way twice – be it the monsters they are filled with, the locations of life-saving merchants, or the pathways between levels. There are only two constants in Abyss Odyssey: a great evil awaits at the bottom of the pit, and succeed or die, the warriors will have to battle the abyss for eternity. But the enemies in the abyss are no mere fodder – each one has a complex set of moves. They also have a weakness: almost every enemy can be possessed and controlled by the player…
Players who brave the dangers in Abyss Odyssey will encounter:
•The Infinite Abyss – Procedurally generated levels will allow the three warriors to battle for eternity.
•Technically Deep – Since combat is the core of the game, ACE Team specifically focused on implementing fighting game mechanics into the action. Dodge-cancels and other technically demanding techniques will unlock the warriors’ true powers in combat.
•Know Thy Enemy – Possess almost any enemy in the game to use its skills and combat abilities…each foe is as technically complex as the main warriors.
•ACE Developed – From the independent team behind some of the most boldly creative, aesthetically interesting titles: the Zeno Clash series and Rock of Ages.
Developed by ACE Team and published by ATLUS, Abyss Odyssey will be available in summer 2014 as a downloadable arcade title for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC. More details on Abyss Odyssey are to come!
