ABZÛ Playstation 4 TBA 2016
Giant Squid is a the new studio formed by previous art director for thatgamecompany's Journey (one of my all time favorite games). The trailer features an underwater explorer on the ocean floor alongside sharks and whales. Little can be derived from the trailer regarding mechanics or story, but it seems to share similar aesthetics to Journey. Austin Wintory, who provided the soundtrack for Journey, is also working on music for ABZÛ. A match made in heaven.
