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...

RealMYHA is part of The Black Cube series (ASA: A Space Adventure, Catyph, Anterran...) and, like all other episodes, it can be played separately. In this sci-fi series, the Cubes are a mysterious and advanced technology created by the Anterran people, an alien civilization who disappeared long ago. The cubes interact with mankind at different moments of its history, offering new powers and technologies. But their true purpose still remains unknown...
MYHA, in its first Original Edition, was a free First Person Adventure game in 2d (prerendered 3d) composed of 360° cylindrical panoramic views, created in 10 days by Simon Mesnard during the Myst Game Jam of January 2016, on itch.io (also available on IndieDB here).
Denis and Simon have worked together to recreate the island of the original game with Unreal Engine 4. New puzzles and ideas make the game longer and more impressive. You'll have to explore the island, look for clues and take notes to solve the secrets of this world.
Please learn more about or project on Kickstarter! Take a few minutes to read our presentation even if you can't give money to help us fund the game. Thanks!
