The game :
ASA is a 1st-person slideshow Adventure with great graphisms, based on exploration and very challenging puzzles. This was a solo-developped project created in 6 months with Adventure Maker in tribute to Riven and other Myst clones. ASA has been rated 4 stars out of 5 on the serious magazine Adventure Gamers.
French review :
With a captivating backstory and engaging, challenging puzzles, ASA: A Space Adventure is a welcome addition to the pantheon of Myst-style puzzle-adventure games.
NASA may have been in a financial slump these last few years, but our fascination with the great unknown that is our universe has never diminished. Are we alone? Are there other life forms out there? Are they watching us? These questions are the focus of ASA: A Space Adventure, a slideshow puzzle-solving game independently developed largely by one man, Simon Mesnard. For those of you who miss the days of Myst and are looking for a challenging puzzle game with a great sci-fi premise, you will be more than satisfied with what ASA has to offer.
In ASA, a nameless astronaut is distracted from his work by a mysterious black cube floating in the middle of space. Entranced by it, he attempts to reach the object, but to do so he must cut off his own oxygen supply (a baffling move to say the least) and is left to drift in the vacuum of space. Instead of dying though, he is transported to an enormous seemingly-abandoned spacecraft. That's where the player takes over, but before you can even get a sense of your surroundings, another spacesuit-clad figure emerges to steal your recently acquired cube. Your task, naturally, is to explore this strange ship (or the Ark as it's called), find the thief, retrieve the cube, and try to discover who built the Ark and for what purpose...
- visit 9 different environments
(6 areas on the main spaceship, 2 planets, 1 satellite)
- benefits of ponctual 360° views for a better immersion.
- over 20 minutes of in-game CG movies, and 2 possible ends !
- rythmed with an original soundtrack by Karreo.
- walk in the steps of another astronaut, who will help you to find your way. Read his diary to find clues and make the storyline evolve.
This game will mostly please lovers of "old-school" adventure games :
L'Amerzone, Atlantis, Cydonia, the Myst series, Rama, Rhem, Schizm, etc...
