Abzu ?>


The Giant Squid Studios’ 2016 video game Abzu could be said to be the spiritual successor to the game company’s phenomenally successful 2012 adventure video game Journey that was made all the more special by an immersive and exquisitely crafted score by Austin Wintory, whose work alongside the game itself went on to win all kinds of acclaim, fame and fortune and for very good reasons.

The movie or the music do not need much introduction, both famous and lauded for their combined and individual merits and there is still a mesmerizing haunting quality to this Roman Polanski directed 1974 film noir.
