About This Game

*UPDATE* - VR mode now supports DK2 on Windows! 'Aaaaaculus!' is the native Oculus Rift mode by your buddies over at Owlchemy Labs! :)

AaaaaAAaaaAAAaaAAAAaAAAAA!!! for the Awesome is a semi-sequel to Dejobaan's award-winning 2009 title, AaaaaAAaaaAAAaaAAAAaAAAAA!!! -- A Reckless Disregard for Gravity. The new game brings you 82 remastered levels from the original and 43 brand new ones that are twice as fast!

Awards for the original game:

  • Finalist, IGF 2010 Excellence in Design
  • Selected by Penny Arcade for PAX East 2010 Boston Indie Showcase
  • ModDB 2009 Editor's Choice Indie Game of the Year
  • Finalist, Indie Game Challenge 2010

Gameplay:

Aaaaa! took place in an alternate 2011, where BASE jumpers leapt from the skies and executed stunts around the floating buildings of Upper Boston. This semi-sequel picks up six years later -- the sport's been outlawed, and you're jumping as a form of protest. High in Earth's stratosphere, you'll thread a path through the rotating blades of enormous wind turbines. Elsewhere in the solar system, you'll dodge asteroids above seas of lava, spray graffiti onto lunar government offices, and flip off Ganymede colonists -- all in the name of peaceful protest.

At its heart, Awesome is all about speed. With your new wingsuit, you'll dive (and die) twice as fast, descending through hovering cities over Earth and beyond. The fastest jumps now offer checkpoints, so if you mash your brains against extraterrestrial rock, you can rewind time and execute the perfect dodge instead. All this is wrapped up in shiny new graphics -- rebuilt from the ground up, the semi-sequel brings you a new lighting system and fancy shader effects (which, let's face it, the AAA studios had a few years back, but bloom, shadows, and depth of field are all new for Aaaaa!).

Key Features:

  • 82 remastered levels from the award-winning original
  • 43 new levels around Earth, Luna, and Ganymede with a new, faster wingsuit
  • Hug terrain, kiss concrete, and thread the needle for points
  • Get bear hugs, slice netting, and hit invulnerability plates for wanton destruction
  • Give your fans the thumbs-up for points or annoy protesters with rude gestures

Here is all the FAQ you need to know if you want to buy this game.


Q: Is that game good?
A: well that depends, can you handle a game that literally takes your logic and then ♥♥♥♥♥ all over it just to then light on fire and use as warmth during the middle of the day when its 90 degrees out and the planet is quickly hurtling towards the sun to be disintegrated after which the sun blows up and out comes this game wearing your logic as a baby bib and your mental sanity as a diaper.

if so then you will love this game.

I've been having a really tough time of things lately, but this game brought a little joy into my life. It's FUN. There's some adult humour, but this is the kind of game I'll happily let my kids play. Sure beats Gears of Halo: Advanced Snorefare.

Ever look over the edge of a tall building and hear that voice in the back of your head tell you "... jump..."?

This game seems like it's entire concept was constructed from that very principle, often called "Lapelle Du Vide" or "Call of the void" though with a comical twist to the whole idea. The goal is simple, jump from a VERY high altitude (some go as far as space), come close enough to buildings and objects that you "kiss" or "hug" them without suffering the ill effects of free-fall collision, and try to land safely. BTW, instead of earning coins or something, the main currency you use to unlock new levels is "teeth"... I don't know why but it makes me just uneasy enough that I laugh every time I finish a level and it sais "You've earned X number of teeth!"

For those with vertigo or who have a fear of hights/falling, I don't reccomend this game as you'll probably find yourself reaching for a bucket every level. To everyone else, I absolutely reccomend this game.

Holy crap. This game is super awesome. It's frustrating as hell--but it's one of those games where you don't mind dying 62 times on the same level, because it's just so damn fun. It's exhilarating and invigorating in a way that I forgot video/computer games could be.

I don't know if anyone else had/will have the same experience I had, but on the off chance that it will help: Take the time to tweak the controls and settings. I wasn't crazy about the game until I played the tutorials several times with different settings to find what I liked. Once you hit the sweet spot, this game is like candy. Sweet, terminal velocity candy.

Highly recommended. 9/10.

Not bad for an indie game. Its basically jumping off buildings and getting more points for the risker stuff you do. Didn't mind it but not really my cup of tea.

Yes. This is simultaneously a videogame, a video game, a vidja, and true art. It is beyond the Citizen Kane of videogames. It is the antibiotics of videojames.

tldr; falling down is fun.

I first played this game on a phone and so it was easier to grasp the controls and point etc.
This game is quite a lot of fun and it gives you that rush you get when you almost hit something over and over again.
I would definitely recommend this game and it also comes with ORIFT support, which means you get to throw up aswell.
11/10 would break all bones again.

This game is a lot like a Saturday morning cartoon in the sense that it's just senseless fun.

It works really with VR (Oculus Rift DK1 and DK2) and is quite fun in a consumable kind of way, constantly offering incentive to play by having stages unlocked based on performance.

It's fun.

Recently snagged this in a Bundle and AaaaaAAaaaAAAaaAAAAaAAAAA!!! For The Awesome is stellar. Wow this game got a makeover and a kick in the pants on the speed and intensity factor since the original demo. I don't have an Oculus to fully enjoy this game but on the highest settings on the old monitor it still looks amazing. The random news bits that play during stage select, the silly videos that you can unlock and the soundtrack just keep the feel of this game going even when your not falling at the ground at terminal velocity.

Do yourself a favour and JOIN THE AWESOME.

An interesting game in which your ability to fall from great heights is put the the ultimate test. Fun for a few hours, I'm not sure if I'd be able to beat all the levels even if I wanted too.
Great game if you get it cheap.

This game is fun with alot of levels and even has oculus rift support but it does get boring over time. If I had an oculus rift I would find this amazing (most likely) but I dont.

This Game is absolutly amazing, it totally understands what it is trying to do and does it perfectly. The only question is do you understand what it is trying to do?

If you are wondering to yourself 'wait in these clips it seems like you could just go on the outside of these courses' the anwser is yes, yes you can. And have absolutly nothing in your way so you can master the movement without getting frustrated. Getting frustrated? THE GAME HAS A SOLUTION TO IT!!!!! It will go through breathing exersices with you to calm you down. This game does not take itself seriously it knows from moment 1 that it is made for fun and the challenge is there if you want it, but only if you want it.

This game has a huge varitety making me reccomend it to casual gamers and Hardcore gamers because you can progress from level to level fairly easily for casual but if you want to 5-Star every level it will give you a good challenge.
Getting the movement down to a useable level is really easilly but mastering it is really hard.

I absolutly love this game from start to just leaving it in your library for every-once-in-awhile play.
