  • Review ABZÛ (PS4)

    Wintory is coming

    It's easy to take ABZÛ's swimming controls for granted. They are, after all, your only means of traversal in the game – it's natural to disregard something so close to home. But if Giant Squid's debut teaches us anything, it's that we should always take time to reflect on things which seem insignificant at first. The secret of...

  • Feature The 10 Best PS4 Soundtracks of 2016

    Hitting the right notes

    Another year gone. Times flies, doesn't it? 2016 may have been, erm, less than stellar in a lot of respects, but the games industry was by no means one of the problems. Quality reigned supreme across so many titles it's hard to keep track. Not to be left behind, though, was the music from these games, which delivered some top...

  • News The Already Gorgeous ABZU Now Has a PS4 Pro Patch

    Look and you'll sea

  • Video Dive Deep with 10 Minutes of ABZÛ PS4 Gameplay

    Under the sea

    We're never getting another Aquanaut's Holiday – more's the pity – but the beautiful ABZÛ should sate your deep sea diving appetite for the time being. The first game by Giant Squid – founded by Matt Nava of Journey and Flower fame – is a presentational tour-de-force, and it controls pretty darn nicely, too. There's some...

  • E3 2016 Indie Beauty ABZÛ Secures Release Date

    And it’s not far off

    While it didn't feature in Sony's killer E3 press conference, the gorgeous indie title, ABZU, from the art director of Journey, did release a trailer during the show. Aside from the unsurprisingly gorgeous visuals and music, the trailer brought with it something even greater: a launch date, and it's coming fairly soon - 2nd...

  • E3 2015 PS4's ABZÛ Is Journey Set Under the Sea

    Aquanaut's holiday

    Being a bit of a contrarian, this author has always enjoyed deep-sea diving games. Aquanaut's Holiday is a particular favourite here at Push Square, but this scribe is also partial to the odd session of Endless Ocean on a certain other system. If it wasn't for its annoying name, then, ABZÛ would be right at the top of your humble...
