Become a microorganism and fight for survival. If that piques your interest, read on...
Go with the flOw
Dive into the tranquil world of the deep blue sea as a hungry young microorganism doing whatever it takes to survive - which is easier said than done in these waters.
Prowl the endless layers of murky ocean in your search for unsuspecting morsels to devour. The further you delve, the more elaborate and hostile your surroundings and their inhabitants become.
As you grow fatter and more formidable, you'll be able to survive encounters with some of the more fearsome life forms that call this dank place home.
Descend deeper into the alien world and keep your senses finely tuned. This is survival of the fittest and only time will tell where you'll end up in this food chain.
flOw takes place in a mesmerising setting of eerily calm clouds of shifting colours, broken up by the blurred silhouettes of the giants patrolling the lower reaches.
The PlayStation®4 system delivers an uncompromising level of detail in the way the world reacts to your movement - look closely and you'll see the air bubbles and particles shooting off in all directions as you swim around.
And it isn't just the visual reactions of your surroundings that will surprise you. All the various creatures you will eat make a different chime as you gulp them down, resulting in a continuously changing symphony as you consume your way through each level.
The soundtrack itself also keeps evolving and twisting in different directions, much like the creature you control. When the pickings are easy, the music will reflect the calm and effortless mood, with the tempo and tension then ramping up when you encounter a pack of merciless hunters.
There's always a bigger fish...
Each game begins with your birth. Awake from your cocoon as a hungry and fragile creature. Soon after you start exploring you'll come across a handful of critters that are now your dinner. When you eat, you'll grow in size, and with a well-balanced diet you'll reach your full potential in no time.
In your search for food you'll have to ascend and descend between a series of planes picking off easy prey and avoiding the bigger monsters - you'll need to grow in size before you can challenge for supremacy in these waters.
flOw is all about discovery, so to say too much about what's waiting for you in the murky deep would spoil the surprise. That said, be sure to try different combinations of food, experiment to discover the strengths and weaknesses of all the creatures and above all remember: there's always a bigger fish out there.
