It’s been awhile but today we see the release of what looks to be another good hidden object title on Linux, “Abyss: The Wraiths of Eden” now available on Steam!
I really enjoyed playing “The Clockwork Man” a few years back and was hoping we’d see more hidden object titles on Linux. So waking up this morning to the release of “Abyss: The Wraiths of Eden” was a real treat for me. Hidden object titles normally have good visual art accompanied by simple but enjoying game play. I find them pleasing to the eye and very relaxing to play, especially when you just need to switch off. So with that said here are the details of today’s release:
Discover and investigate a forgotten underwater city built in an intriguing Art-Deco style. This former utopia hides many spine-chilling secrets and supernatural forces, the remains of which still lurk in every corner. Face the ancient evil that is hiding in the deepest chambers of the city of Eden. During your exploration of this Eden beneath this sea, you will solve cleverly designed minigames and find hidden objects or play a special minigame as an alternative. Hold your breath and dive into the game to experience the wonders of the underworld for yourself.
The utopian city of Eden, located at the bottom of the sea, was once a haven of peace, harmony and beauty. Constructed in secret by a group of enlightened people who treasured noble ideals, knowledge and new discoveries, it blossomed into a harmonious, peaceful society. However, their insatiable curiosity led to Eden’s downfall. A mysterious finding dug up from an ancient seabed unleashed supernatural forces that pitted the citizens against each other, turning them into the merciless executors of a sinister will. Fear and cruelty replaced peace and enlightenment. The city started dying, until only a small group of resistance fighters was left hiding in the ruins.
A world-famous explorer, Robert Marceau, who is also the protagonists lover, accidentally discovers the city. Contact with him is lost soon after that, and the woman, not caring about the danger, goes to the rescue. Striding along dark and ruined corridors of the underwater city, she discovers its mysteries and meets the last inhabitants. Documents from the past gradually reveal the horrifying truth about the conflict that destroyed this submarine paradise.
