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

Break a few laws in a virtual world and have lots of fun doing it! It's like GTA except not really and there is a lot more falling and (probably) breaking your neck/legs/arms/everything. There are a lot of levels to play and there are random entertaining videos that you can unlock in between all the falling. It's a dollar on the humble bundle at the moment, so what have you got to lose? (Besides a dollar).

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.

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.

headache simulator, with a minor plot point about falling.

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.

With the recently released patch, they've cleared up the few lingering issues holding this game back for the rift.

It's fun without the Rift, but it's definitely better with it now

The menus are HORRIBLE! Every single one of them, horrible.
I don't know what's worse, the mechanics or the menus. Once you work out how to navigate the menus, you must search through tons of locked levels that aren't sorted at all in order to find the starter tutorial levels, mixed in with random facts that are just in the way of gameplay and clutter everything.
The way the game was executed is too complicated for it's own good, despite the idea behind it (falling) should be simple.

Fun, irreverant, and a little crazy. It's a game about falling and flipping off the people who hate you while doing it. The soundtrack is awesome, and the mechanics are fun. The videos are... well let's say they're weird as hell, considering there's a recipe for cookies made from ashes of dead jumpers such as yourself.

Seriously, though, I can't recommend this game by Dejobaan games enough!

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.

This is a building-kissing-whilst-free-falling simulator.
You'll have to figure out if it appeals to you yourself.
