by on June 10, 2014

Sony unveiled underwater explorer ABZU at their conference, coming to PS4.

Launching in 2016, the studio’s highly anticipated first game title ABZÛ was unveiled at Sony’s E3 keynote address last night at the Los Angeles Memorial Sports Arena. This deal furthers 505 Games’ strategy of attracting innovative developers with strong artistic sensibility and allowing them to do what they do best.

Known for his stunning work as the Art Director at thatgamecompany, Nava was a core contributor to the beautiful and internationally acclaimed titles Flower and Journey. Flower was one of the first video games to be officially added to the permanent art collection of The Smithsonian American Art Museum, an event that helped cement the medium of games as an art form in the public consciousness. Winner of more than 33 Game of the Year and multiple Best Art Direction Awards, Journey is a testament to Nava’s ability to communicate deeply moving narrative through visual and interactive design. Nava has also been twice included on the prestigious Forbes “30 Under 30” list of top young game industry talent.
