ACE Team – developers of the excellent Zeno Clash series – has announced its latest project.
Abyss Odyssey is a 2d side-scroller with roguelike elements. While details remain thin on the ground for the moment, the developer is promising regular updates in the near future via the official website and facebook page.
What we do know is the game will feature an art-nouveau style and feature three heroes journeying to the bottom of a giant dungeon. Enemies can be possessed and controlled by the player, while random generation should mean that, in theory, no level will ever look the same on a second playthrough. In addition, the developer is promising deep combat mechanics such as dodge-cancels and “other technically demanding techniques”.
There’s no news yet on when we can expect the game, but we’ll be keeping an eye on it during the course of development.
In the meantime, you can watch the announcement trailer above.
