"First person puzzle-heavy adventure set to a rich sci-fi style. A suspenseful setting that is detailed and vibrant in a grotesque, organic sort of way."

Working as a night-watchman at a partially abandoned, secret research facility, you are knocked unconscious by a nearby explosion. Waking in the complex’s basement you look up and see a gaping hole in the ceiling. Escaping the damaged building is only the start of your troubles and as you begin to explore the base you encounter strange, unearthly organisms. Is this all because of some sort of biological experiment gone wrong? You’ll need to fight for survival as you unravel the mysteries and solve the problems that lie ahead.

So, it's pretty obvious how much of an influence Sierra and Lucas Art adventure games inspired this (infact, make sure to keep looking at the tentacles...). It clearly tries to be as notoriously difficult as those games, but in some ways that doesn't work in its favor. Often times though, it does. The puzzles can be pretty esoteric, but none worse than some of those games. The controls are clunky. Not "clunky at times" just flat out clunky. But, they get the job done.

I really do like this game. The asthetic is perfect, and while I don't like the controls, I like the general idea and most of its execution. I want more first person "infinite pockets, use every item on everything" adventure games, and I think this a great place to start from.

Story is good and simple like those games as well, fits the atmosphere entirely.

Honestly, if you think you might like it, you probably will.

I'm loving it. I wasn't sure what to think since it has so many negative reviews but I feel like most of their gripes didn't apply to me at all. I LOVE that it's not holding my hand and that you need to explore the environments to figure out the puzzles. And with the inventory system... it's not really bothering me since I'm using a controller. It feels like he was trying to make the interaction a bit more contextual which was maybe a turn off to a lot. Anyways, I definitely recommend this. It was a great little steal on the Summer Sale.

It really pains me to write a negative review for this game; it's got tons of style and great ideas, and it's clearly a labor of love for its creators; but as an experiment in how to do a first person graphic adventure, it unfortunately misses more than it hits.
Halfway through I had to start using walkthroughs. A little bit further, I got absolutely stuck even though I knew exactly what I needed to do, and ended up giving up on the game. The game's weird interface causes lots of problems and makes it almost impossible to figure things out at times - even when the underlying puzzle is solid (for example, there is a lovely puzzle involving building a ladder out of tube parts that is renderd too obscure by its execution). There is very little clarity, very little consistency in how interaction works, and it's not helped by very fiddly or clunky sections.
Oh, and there are time-sensitive puzzles and parts where you are attacked by unbeatable monsters.

All of this is a huge shame, because as said before, there is a lot of love and imagination in the game, and when it works, it can be pretty great. It's worth trying and supporting, just be aware of what you're getting into first.

Early Access Review
Albedo – Eyes from Outer Space is essentially a first-person adventure game and I love it. It’s tricky too with the puzzles certainly giving your brain a workout, but lateral thinking will get you through and you’ll end up kicking yourself at the solution.

The 50s sci-fi graphics are spot on and the game oozes atmosphere. I encountered one or two minor ♥♥♥♥les but the game is in Early Access (out very soon I reckon) and the one-man team (yes, this game has been made by one guy!) is super fast with his updates.

I cannot recommend Albedo – Eyes from Outer Space highly enough, it rocks!
