Absume is a short and unsettling underwater action game where you control a dolphin and attempt to catch fish in an ocean filled with massive Eldritch abominations.
Playing a little like a fusion of Ecco the Dolphin and Eldritch horror, in Absume your aim is simply to swim around and eat as much fish as possible. The smaller fish are fairly easy to catch, and the more of them you eat, the more your body will grow and change. However, you’re far from the biggest fish in the sea – there are also gigantic tentacled Eldritch monstrosities that will instantly kill you if you get too close to them.
It’s a fairly simple game, but very well executed, with a mixture of fun fish hunting gameplay and real feeling of unease as you get closer to the giant sea monsters. It’s also interesting to see how your body morphs over time, turning you into something very different than the cute little dolphin you started out as!
