Ace Team has announced its upcoming action-platformer, Abyss Odyssey, which will borrow elements from rogue-likes and fighting games. The developer is best known for its work on the Zeno Clash series.
Like many rogue-like games, the environment, enemies, loot, and secret areas will change on every playthrough. Abyss Odyssey’s roster and controls will be more like a fighting game, than a traditional action-platformer. Even the enemies have more depth to them, according to Ace Team, and players can gain the ability to transform into them and use their unique moveset.
