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...

Last night the release of Kitrinos has been accepted on IndieDb, so we're very happy to announce that you can now download and play our new game for free! This project created in 15 days during Adventure Jam 2018 with Yazorius is not just a small incomplete game or a demo: it's a real project which will keep you busy for 1 or 2 hours minimum!
I did all the graphics (environment backgrounds, screenplay and movies) during the two weeks of the Game Jam. It then took Yazorius a month to implement the rest of the game, programming an engine which is -from his own words- highly inspired by Zork (he’s a big fan), and including some puzzles to challenge the adventurers’ neurons. Entirely available in both French and English, this game is above all the fruit of an all new collaboration for us.
Kitrinos, in brief, is:
“1961. The hero is Professor Dimarx, an archaeologist who thinks he made the discovery of the century on his planet, Terra, on the forbidden continent of Meridia. For posterity, he is followed by his long-time partner and friend, Gramuel Solus, who is in charge of filming this great event. On arriving at the ruins, they discover a chasm with stairs carved into the rock. Here and there, strange black crystals seem to indicate ancient volcanic activity. Dimarx is exalted by his discovery, and descends into the depths of the earth without precautions. He is as if called by an unknown force, and will discover the first Black Cube in the modern history of Terra. His mind is then like ‘absorbed’ inside…”
Kitrinos: Inside the Cube takes place in a retro geometrical world that can remind of old scifi movies and polygonal games. The gameplay is frame by frame in prerendered 3D backgrounds with 360° panoramic views in HD and short animation cutscenes. The game was developed with the Clickteam Fusion engine. As usual it is recommended to play with a pen and paper to take notes and solve the puzzles.
