Not an odyssey of the mind, not a Homeric odyssey, and certainly not a Magnavox Odyssey, Joystiq Streams is exploring the bizarre sidescrolling and fisticuffs of ACE Team's Abyss Odyssey. The same crew behind Zeno Clash, Abyss Odyssey marks a shift away from that game's surrealist first-person brawling. Rather than deformed characters getting punched in a muted, poisonous landscape, Abyss Odyssey has you picking one of three characters to dive into randomly generated abysses. Waiting within? New things to punch in unusual ways, but from the side this time!
Joystiq Streams will explore Abyss Odyssey's unplumbed depths at 4PM EST on Joystiq.com/Twitch. Ludwig Kietzmann will be behind the controller while Susan Arendt backs him up and hangs with the chat.
Joystiq Streams broadcasts live every Tuesday and Thursday at 4PM EST Joystiq.com/Twitch, but unscheduled streams go live all the time, so be sure to follow us on Twitch to know when we're on.
