Summary

ASA: A Space Adventure was originally created with love by a single person, and now comes back in a HD remake thanks to the help of developer Andrea Rinaldi. ASA is a first-person slideshow adventure game (point & click) reminiscent of famous games such as the Myst and Rhem series. Visit a vast spaceship called The Ark, divided into several areas, and discover the truth behind the Cubes and their creators...
You'll probably need a pen and a paper to write down your notes in order to solve the challenging puzzles! This game can be very difficult for people who are not familiar with the genre.

In 2057, an astronaut finds a strange Black Cube in Space, and is teleported onto a mysterious spaceship called the Ark. You soon discover that he's not the first astronaut from planet Terra to arrive here: Philip Forte lived through the very same experience in 2011 and, fortunately, left a diary explaining his story. With this help, you visit the Ark, with one single goal in mind: getting back home!

ASA: Remastered Edition is an improved version of the game originally released in January 2013 by Simon Mesnard. It is part of the Black Cube series, a collection of Sci-Fi projects based on a book.


Original version features:

  • 9 different environments (6 areas on the main spaceship, 2 planets, 1 satellite)
  • 10 hours of gameplay
  • a story illustrated with several CG movies for a better immersion
  • rythmed with an original soundtrack by Stélian Derenne (Karreo).
  • walk in the steps of a disapeared astronaut. Read his diary to find clues and recreate the full storyline.
  • discover the first released game of the Black Cube series

New in this HD Remake:

ASA: Remastered Edition is the exact same than the original ASA game, except that we've been working on several new features specifically for the Steam release. Despite a lot of efforts in the past, the original version released in 2013 presented different issues that could not be solved, so we decided to restart from scratch with a new game engine! Here's the list of new features:

  • Play in HD 1920x800 (1024x432 for the original game) - we have re-rendered all the backgrounds from the original 3D scenes (not a photoshop upscale!)
  • Developed with Visonaire Studio, allowing more flexibility and stability
  • We've added visual aids to identify the hotspots
  • More translations, no need to patch anymore! (English, French, Italian, Spanish and German)
  • Available for Windows, Mac and Linux

ASA: A Space Adventure - Remastered Edition reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Italian
* Yellow Thumb * Asa is a first-person adventure to static screens. Myst-like space-themed Game. The Beginning is fascinating: we are in a space station (almost) uninhabited, the first Enigma requires us to insert a combination using an alien numerical system; Here we highlight the first feature of the game: you have to play it with a notebook in your hand and mark the things you discover, since the game does not provide any support in this respect. The thing is simple at the beginning but becomes more complicated when you have to have all the alien alphabet in the eye or a sequence of 42 numbers (!) to be inserted in the right order. From this you can understand for yourself if you are ready for this approach "Old-Shool" or if you do not have the time or the desire to beat at these levels. Technically we are on discrete levels, although the static screens are outdated, but generally everything seems quite crude, and could not be otherwise seen as a game made by one person. The plot is interesting, with some reference to 2001 ": Space Odyssey". The main problem for me are some of the really extreme puzzles, since we will not only have to have the right information in our notebook, but we should also remind us of all the clues we find in our exploration, which are Fundamental to understand the logic of some puzzles that otherwise will seem completely meaningless, making it almost impossible for example to play only on weekends. In Short, the game is not flunked altogether, who wants to devote and commit to the bottom of this is the right game, for everyone else the game will be far too difficult.

Space solitude and mysticism, with these three words I can express the videogame experience of this title. If the technical gaps are clear, especially in the displacements, too cumbersome and confusing at times, this game offers a very special experience, with a storyline that convinces immediately and intrigues, to the point of letting us go ahead to discover all the Secrets that the game offers us. Noteworthy is the artistic side of the game in fact, which recreates the right atmosphere and sometimes amazes for the purely aesthetic taste, if well as already said the technical shortcomings are evident here too. To be praised also the various puzzles, these will virtually never be out of place, are consistent with the plot and leave free space to interpretation, almost never in fact we will have to search for particular objects to use or keys to open a door, instead is more Probably we will have to search for a code to decipher to discover the combination to continue, so it becomes very important to take notes in our adventure, we will find in fact annotations records and anything else that can help us But we will not carry anything with us, so it is necessary to write down everything that seems interesting, you will not need to find all the clues to continue then, sometimes we can find the solution without aid, this from large Satisfactions sometimes. I would recommend this game but only to those who have a good dose of patience and those who love the graphic adventures at the "Myst", we are faced with an excellent game but with a strong old school imprint, that does not satisfy all the palates with its calm tones and at times frustrating. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=63E0tr851W4
