Wombo Combos With My Wallet: Abyss Odyssey Released

Got them post-EVO blues? Don't worry, the perfect solution has arrived. Abyss Odyssey is the latest offering of ACE Team, the Zeno Clash fellas and fellettes, and it's a 2D combo of roguelike, platformer and fighting game. The most interesting of those is the last, with everything from move-cancelling to combo systems and character selection integrated into its campaign. Absorbing slain enemies' souls will allow…

Ruddy Women! Watch 7 Minutes Of Abyss Odyssey

"This is no place for a woman! Get outta here!" a soldier cries in the opening seconds of Abyss Odyssey. Really, a hellish abyss opened up in 19th century Chile is no place for anyone, and she certainly fares better than all those poor chaps. So begins Zeno Clash chaps ACE Team's procedurally-generated punchy platformer, as shown off in a new seven-minute gameplay video. Or…

Likeable Roguelike-like: Abyss Odyssey Begins On July 15

They've got similar roots in fighting game brilliance to this, which favours a 2D platforming perspective for something a bit more standard. The main draw is being able to switch form into…

Feature: Super Smash Bros + Street Fighter = Roguelike?

Zeno Clash Dev On Abyss Odyssey’s Procedural Insanity

You certainly can't knock Zeno Clash and Rock of Ages developer ACE Team for a lack of ambition. Their previous titles' massive scope and rampant, otherworldly weirdness demonstrated that in spades. So how do you follow that? Why, by jutting off in an entirely different direction, of course. Abyss Odyssey is a procedurally generated, Street Fighter and Super Smash Bros-inspired roguelike-like (but not quite) um...…

After The Zeno Clash: Abyss Odyssey

With Zeno Clash developers ACE Team at the helm, Abyss Odyssey will no doubt take place in quite an odd world, but it definitely won't take place in Oddworld, even if the title does look a bit like Abe's Oddysee. The newly announced game is a side-scroller like Oddworld's first, but ACE Team are sticking to their principles by concentrating on creatures engaging in fisticuffs.…
