E3 – Abzû, from Journey's art director, coming to Playstation 4

The first game from Giant Squid studios, helmed by Journey’s art director Matt Nava, is called Abzû, and was introduced today during the Sony E3 2014 conference. There’s not a lot of information about the game yet, but the trailer presented a gorgeous, tranquil experience where a character walked in the bottom of the ocean.

A short summary was also released by Sony:

ABZÛ will take players on an epic adventure into the depths of the ocean, where they will encounter majestic creatures and discover long lost secrets. The game draws inspiration from a deep, innate story that we all carry in our collective subconscious, a universal origin myth that resonates across cultures. As such, the name ABZÛ references a concept from the oldest Mesopotamian mythology: it is the combination of two ancient words Ab, meaning ocean, and Zû, meaning to know. Essentially, ABZÛ is the ocean of wisdom.
