Key art underwater scene of diver for Abzu Extended game

Abzu is Matt Nava’s follow up to his landmark artsy video games “Flower” and “Journey”.  Having mastered land, there was no other choice than for Nava to dive underwater.

After the success of the 2012 indie hit “Journey”, which swept that year’s Game Developers Choice Awards and whose score was nominated for a Grammy; Nava formed his own studio to create an ethereal undersea odyssey called “Abzu”.  In a sea of role-playing games and first-person shooters, moody experimental games like “Abzu” remain an anomaly and are especially difficult to design.  “Abu”, which has been released for PlayStation 4 and PC, casts players as a nameless diver exploring an immense three-dimensional seascape teeming with marine life and fantastical topography.

There’s no dialogue or weapons. As with “Flower” and “Journey,” the game’s story unfolds through exploration. “There’s a fine line between telling a story solely through the atmosphere and players just not having any idea where to go,” Nava said. “There are hundreds of directions you could travel in the ocean, so figuring out how to direct the player and design the environments so people had the right amount of direction – but not too much – was very important.” The 10-person team at Nava’s Giant Squid studio found that one of the biggest challenges in creating a game that’s entirely set within the ocean was directing light and forming terrain that undauntedly guides players.

Earth Day



 

American Artists Representatives would like to increase global awareness on this particular occasion, Earth Day. Nasa.gov’s analysis of “Climate Change:  Vital Signs of the Planet:  Evidence” proves that in 1950 the highest carbon dioxide level ever recorded was between 300 and 320 ppm. As of right now, there is a recorded 400 ppm in the atmosphere. These numbers are significantly high and we are ruining the natural state of our planet. Scientists agree that global warming and consequent climate change can be largely credited to human activity alone. The top endangered species include polar bears, frogs, penguins. With a constant rise in temperature their habitats are being altered and decreasing their chance of survival. As temperatures rise, ice melts and sea levels rise. This will not only affect the animals who cannot adapt to their habitat but it will affect many people (especially those who live on coastal borders.) We need to play our part in leading environmentally sound lives. Artists such as Mardo El-Noor, Jerry LoFaro, Frank Neidhardt and Alan Male have created images via photography, typography, cgi, and photo-imaging that we hope resonate with our viewers to live more eco-friendly. Thank you for looking!

Photographer Raffael Dickreuter is based in Los Angeles, CA. His professional background is diverse in film visual effects, design, advertising and photography. While attending the Golden Globe awards a couple of months back, Raffael Dickreuter was fortunate enough to get a word in with Robert Downey Jr. Robert Downey Jr. and Marvel’s Tony Stark are very similar characters; when Dickreuter felt that Robert Downey Jr. was essentially untouchable to mere mortals, he decided to create the “Iron Man Grounded” project. What if Iron Man had to struggle like the rest of us? Wait in line for tickets, take the bus, fly economy class? Right around the time that Avengers: Age of Ultron was being released he spent time developing the less-glamorous scenes.
