In 2013, former members of the society named after this game companythe origin of games Flow, Flower and Travel (then Sky: Children of the Light after the departure of several members), founded the studio giant squid and announced shortly after the underwater adventure game Abzuoriginally released in 2016 on computer, Gaming console 4and two years later Nintendo Switch. Giant Squid did not stop there, as in 2020 the American company released a second title PS4, PS5, PC, Mac and iOS : Off-road, an adventure game. Abzû has been edited 505 gamesbut this time the Giant Squid backed up Annapurna Interactive for editing. The game has been well received since its release and we have some good news: it’s coming to Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and Xbox Series this winter (fourth quarter of this year). The PS5 version was entitled to a physical edition shortly after release for download via iam8bit, Skybound games and Simply For gamesso we’re guessing it will be for the Switch version as well, at least.
As with Abzu, The Pathless was directed Matt Navewho aimed to create a game in search of his own path, and wrote the music Austin Wintory (also known for his work on the music for Flow, Journey, The Banner Saga series, Assassin’s Creed Syndicate, Pode, John Wick HEX, Erica, AGOS: A Game of Space and many other video games and films). In addition, the soundtrack has been awarded several times. For this game, Austin Wintory called “Alash” ensemble.traditional Tuvan music group.
The Pathless tells about the mystical adventure of an archer huntress, accompanied by an eagle, in a huge forest. The game emphasizes exploration and takes place in an open world, with no map to guide us, so we forge our own path through ancient lands filled with mystery. The huntress seeks to remove the curse that threatens both the mystical island where she is, and the entire world, and finally face the great antagonist of the game. The heroine is a master archer who can perform smooth acrobatic tricks and very powerful shots. She can also use her spiritual sight to reveal secrets from the past, which by the way affects the gameplay as it helps to find interesting places and creates a connection with an accompanying eagle who can carry her so that she can fly through air.
Pathless has a unique archery system that allows you to easily shoot while traversing landscapes at full speed. The title also consists of solving puzzles in various locations to explore, including ancient ruins that allow you to unravel the mysteries of forgotten traditions. In addition, the adventure game requires her to also face opponents: giant evil spirits that roam the forest. The goal? Pursue the enemies, but be careful not to fall prey to them. However, don’t worry if the huntress is defeated, even if the glowing stones collected during the adventure are lost, it is possible to recover as much as possible before disappearing, and the game does not punish us with permanent damage or death.
