Description

Summary

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: A Space Adventure was originally created with love by a single person, and now comes back in a Remastered Edition thanks to the help of developer Andrea Rinaldi. ASA is a first-person slideshow adventure game (point 'n 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 paper to write down your notes in order to solve the challenging puzzles!

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. Several other projects related to the Black Cube series, such as Catyph: The Kunci Experiment, should release in the coming years and you can find them all on their dedicated website: http://www.theblackcube.fr

"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!" (AdventureGamers.com, 4/5)

  1. Good . . But . . .
    by JT&LB, USA - Aug 8th 2017

    I had problems with this game right from the beginning. When I first ran it, it was in a 3" wide box & was too small to play. So I had to change settings on my computer to Open in Low Resolution. That fixed it. Game play started out fine, was interesting, but the navigation left much to be desired. I played with the hot spot option on, but sometimes the hotspots weren't shown. The story was interesting and moved along, but as time went by, the puzzles got more confusing. They just weren't logical or intuitive. The worst was the colors/numbers, in the crossword grid, where you had to draw, on paper, the crossword grid & put all the numbers found into it. How would anyone know that? Thank goodness I found a walkthrough! If you find everything, there are 2 different endings, if not you have a few options that give you the same ending. Like I said, it was fun to play up to a point, then solving puzzles became ridiculous!
