Abzû, the best game about exploring the depths of the ocean (sorry Ecco the Dolphin), will get a physical release on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One this January. It's a beautiful and relaxing adventure, focused on a deep sea diver as he tries to learn more about the world and its complex ecology. The short, atmospheric title is already available through Steam and the PSN store; the big news, therefore, is its debut on Xbox hardware. The game was developed by Giant Squid, a new studio founded by Flower and Journey art director Matt Nava. Consequently, the art direction is stunning -- if you like taking beautiful screenshots, this is the game for you.

The retail release will be priced at $19.99 and come with some exclusive goodies: a dynamic theme for PS4 and some colorful backgrounds for the Xbox One. In my opinion, it fails to hit the emotional highs of Journey -- but if you like the work of ThatGameCompany, it's still worth checking out. The music and environments alone are worth the price of admission.
