Starting today on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360, the warlock’s nightmare takes shape in the form of Abyss Odyssey. The 2-D adventure game from indie developer ACE Team (Rock of Ages, Zeno Clash) and published by ATLUS features rogue-like elements steeped in fighting game mechanics. Beginning today, players can purchase the game on Steam, PSN and Xbox Live. The game retails for $14.99.
To celebrate the launch of Abyss Odyssey are two new promotions for the console launch:
– 30% discount for PlayStation 3 users (any PSN member in North America, discount only for PS+ subscribers in EU) for one week after launch.
– 33% discount for Xbox 360 users for one week after launch.
Abyss Odyssey has an aesthetic that blends Art Nouveau and Chilean folklore in a procedurally generated environment. As players descend the Abyss, different regions will be home to different monsters, all of which have their own movesets. Capturing the soul of defeated enemies lets players take their form and battle as them. Death is no obstacle as well, as experience carries over between playthroughs. Levelling up allows more powerful monsters to be captured, more loot to be acquired, and more treasure to find.
