About Judy

As WP's managing editor, I edit review and preview articles, attempt to keep up with the frantic pace of Rainier's news posts, and keep our reviewers on deadline, which is akin to herding cats. When I have a moment to myself and don't have my nose in a book, I like to play action/RPG, adventure and platforming games.

'Phantom Abyss' Coming to Steam Early Access Next Week - Trailer

by Judy on June 12, 2021 @ 11:52 p.m. PDT

Phantom Abyss is a massive asynchronous multiplayer game that casts players into trap-laden, procedurally generated temples and tasks them with retrieving the sacred relics hidden within their walls.

Intrepid adventurers will dodge scores of hidden traps, leap treacherous chasms, and flee relentless guardians through branching paths until one of the relics is claimed or the devices of death overwhelm them.

Be warned, you only get one attempt at each temple and failure or settling for a lesser relic means you will never see that temple again...

The most cunning explorers will use the phantom runs of failed attempts from other players to their advantage and avoid the missteps and mistakes that led to their doom. Once the legendary relic at the bottom of each temple is found, the temple goes away forever and becomes the priceless trophy of the skilled adventurer.

Phantom Abyss is coming to Steam Early Access on June 22, 2021.

Key Features:

  • Asynchronous Multiplayer - Explore the perilous halls and colossal rooms of each temple alongside the phantoms of fallen players that came before you and use their successes and failures to your advantage to progress deeper than they ever could have hoped. Watch and learn from the mistakes of up to fifty phantoms including your Steam friends that have attempted the same temple and steal their whips as they fall.
  • Unlock More Treacherous Floors - Recover keys from chests to unlock deeper, deadlier sections of the temple that house more coveted relics. The more difficult a relic is to obtain, the greater the reward - the final Legendary Relic of a temple allows you to claim the whole temple so that it's gone forever.
  • Blessings from the Gods - As adventurers venture further into a temple, offerings of collected treasures can be made at altars to gain a new blessing for the rest of the run. Collect as much treasure as you can to please the gods and gain a double jump, glide jump, extended slide, damage protection, and more.
  • Unlockable Whips - Unlock new whips with success and choose from your collection before venturing into your next run. Each whips carries a minor blessing but also a curse that may complicate your attempt at riches and glory.
  • Social Connections - Players can share Temple Codes for their failed runs allowing friends to attempt the same temple or share their Adventure Code which yields a playlist of temples that player has attempted in the past.

Phantom Abyss is coming to Steam Early Access on June 22, 2021.
