When I was a wee lad of 4 years old, my uncle decided it was time for me to sink or swim. Literally; he threw me into the deep end of a pool. Given little choice in the matter, I promptly sank. Like a stone. Thankfully, my mom was there to jump in and pull me out (and to give my uncle a particularly loud, and profanity-laden dressing down) but that experience instilled in me a deep-seated fear of water that lasted from the wee lad years up until my teens, when I took it upon myself to conquer this fear and taught myself to swim.
Which is good, because if I hadn’t done that, today’s release, Abyss: The Wraiths of Eden would likely induce a panic attack were I to play it. But played it I have and assure you I can that the only kind of attack you’ll have is a fun attack. That’s a thing, right? Well it should be. Anyway, in this game, it’s up to you to explore the once idyllic, now sunken (which definitely reduces the idyll-osity of a place) city of Eden to search for your lost fiancée. As you explore this mysterious underwater realm, you will encounter clever minigames and challenging hidden object scenes before your final confrontation with the menace lurking in the watery depths. This game is definitely an abyss into which you’ll want to dive over and over again.
