Abzu, the upcoming deep sea diving game from new studio Giant Squid, is a serene and beautiful take on oceanic exploration. In the preview video above, you can get a feel for what your explorer can do in the water — things like cannonballs, hitching rides on giant sea creatures and making friends with adorable robot companions. It's all super chill, until you're viciously reminded that there's a pecking order in the ocean, and that sharks are higher up on that list than, say, adorable robot companions.
