Abyss: The Wraiths of Eden Review

Eden is a beautiful metropolis that has fallen into ruin and anarchy. The remaining residents require assistance. Save them so that evil will not consume humans indefinitely.

Robert Marceau is an explorer and diver. During one of his expeditions, he vanished without a trace. His companion comes to his aid without showing any signs of life. The player assumes her position and descends into the unfathomable depths of the sea. Our main objective is to find our loved one, but in the meanwhile, this goal will be pushed to the sidelines. During an underwater search, a lady discovers a decaying underwater metropolis. Every unlocked door hides a danger.

The more we play, the more we discover about the city and its residents. Soon, rescuing humans from the homicidal Legates – demonic entities from another dimension who wish to enslave the Edenians – will be the top concern. Their fate is in the hands of the player. The narrative of the game begins fairly innocently and clichéd. When you arrive in Eden, it’s tough not to think of the game Abyss as a mash-up of themes from Lovecraft and Verne’s literature, presented in a beautiful environment reminiscent of Bioshock. Fortunately, the patterns are worthwhile to follow, and the tiny tale begins to emerge as the game proceeds. Abyss is a traditional adventure game in which we experience the world via the main character’s eyes. Touching the screen of a tablet or smartphone allows us to operate it. Essentially, each location is a distinct board on which we do not move but instead trigger pre-programmed interactions for the player, such as going to another place or a new level. We’ll come across a lot of intriguing and, most importantly, reasonable riddles and puzzles while playing. A unique button has been provided for folks who are having difficulty solving such a narrative or are unable to advance the storyline. When you touch it, it gives you a suggestion. I must concede that this is an interesting patent that makes the game more accessible to a wider audience.

Abyss looks fantastic in terms of graphics. The characters’ dread is palpable, and the settings are dramatic and well crafted. It’s a shame that the game is hampered by mediocre cutscenes that could have been much better. The sound design is of outstanding quality. The main character’s slightly emotionless voice, which may be grating at times, is one minor quibble.

I don’t have to persuade an adventure game fan twice. Abyss is a good title. It does not stand out for its uniqueness, and you may ignore the script gaps and simplifications. The game is all about having fun and being addicted to it.
