Description: One day there was an accident in the ocean deep and a long established balance between the light and the darkness was destroyed. The time has stopped and you are alone to reconstruct the memories of the past and to define what happens in the future. Find long-lost letters from different ages and face people’s struggles with time, destiny, coincidence and human nature, hear their voices, establish hidden connections and head to test yourself in a final battle.

Review: Abyssus (Abyssus: Mysteries of the Deep to give it its full name) is a full motion adventure game that sees you exploring a drilling accident underwater. I was never quite sure what I was but I can only guess it was alien in origin. Once all the sections are accessible you do have a pretty large virtual environment to explore, but I did feel that it didn’t explain well enough what you had to do to unlock those sections. Putting that issue aside and I eventually realised what I had to do to unlock the different sections and I started to find the game oddly relaxing and peaceful. While sometimes far too dark and then far too light the game is tranquil from start to finish and when I started to really get into it I was lost inside of the virtual ‘accident’ for several hours. I feel this is indeed worth the money and worth a download, but you need to give this game time to get you hooked. But if you are looking for something a little more action-packed you might want to give this one a miss.
