“By the standards of many independent game titles, and most modern games for that matter, Albedo’s visuals are striking and extremely impressive.”
IndieGameMag

“Albedo: Eyes from Outer Space looks like something you'd get if you spliced together The Residents, BioShock and Myst, and it definitely stands out from the crowd.”
Destructoid

“Merge Games has just announced Albedo: Eyes from Outer Space, a first-person puzzle/first person shooter title set in a goofy sci-fi world.”
Polygon

Ist das alles passiert, nur weil ein biologisches Experiment fehlschlug? Kämpfe um dein Leben, um dich aus deinem Gefängnis zu befreien und die vor dir liegenden Geheimnisse zu lüften!

If you are looking for a serious, deeply moving story in an adventure game - turn back.
If you are looking for an easy, relaxing game - turn back now.
If you are looking for a pure, old-school point and click - what are you doing? Run and never turn back!

This game, THIS **** GAME somehow manages to be frustrating, funny, extraordinarily stupid and challenging at the same time. Why is that? Let me explain.

The very first thing that one notices about this game is the style - very reminiscent of some of the silliest old comedy horror films (the game title is a great clue already). Everything, including enemy models, items you pick up and places you visit contributes to the atmosphere. Add in amazingly (heh) delivered lines from the main character and you might feel like a star! ...in a film directed by Ed Wood. Much of the games humour relies on the atmosphere; the potentially dangerous situation (alien invasion) is turned into something ridiculous because of the genre Albedo emulates. On a sidenote, people interested in funny references/Easter Eggs will love this game.

Now, one should take note of this fact - Albedo can be REALLY hard. While not impossible, some puzzles might leave you plain confused or even clueless about what are you even supposed to do in the room you're in. This isn't necessarily a bad thing but sometimes one might feel really frustrated, walking around and searching for that one item you might've missed, or a possible action you overlooked. However, sometimes the difficulty spikes are caused by neither hard puzzles nor confusion but...

...action sequences. Especially those which are at the same time technically "timed puzzles". There is one sequence, you'll know which one, which made me want to bang my head on the keyboard. Even if you like timed challenges, you might find yourself frustrated at the rather unforgiving circumstances in this one. Fortunately, this puzzle, like many other, can be skipped (but true gamers shouldn't do that, should they?).

Unfortunately, this is not always the case and sometimes, just sometimes, one might be extraordinarily unlucky and find themselves a bug. Not a walking one (well, it is possible to be bitten by a spider/eat a spider) but ugly nontheless (sorry, all the insects of this world...) - for example, some essential items might suddenly become impossible to pick up. Fortunately enough, the game saves automatically at least once per room/puzzle, so you have a quick solution to that. In my case this bug appeared twice but not in the same room and with the same item.

To sum up, Albedo: Eyes from Outer Space is a solid title, a great parody just like its "cousins" from the big screen. A perfect title to pick up after completing Alien Isolation or something like that :)

A rather bad adventure game with a terrible UI which is slow and cumbersome to use. The mouse wheel is used to scroll horizontally through all the items in your inventory, which you have to do slowly otherwise you can't choose the exact object you want if done too fast.

The mouse wheel is also used to scroll through actions when you mouse over or use an object, such as pick up, drop, observe, use with, throw and put in inventory. It makes it hard to do anything quickly which becomes a problem when faced with an aggressive monster you can't kill and can only distract for a short time making it frustrating to play as the monster kept killing me as I can't do anything quick enough.


When I went into the room with flames and back again all of a sudden my fps dropped dramatically so I was moving in slow motion. I had to quit and restart the game for the fps to be ok again.


The gameplay is rather dull where all you do is just go around finding objects to use on other objects to progress to find more objects and repeat, isn't really my thing. Besides objects on objects there are puzzles which can be quite challenging often taking me a while to figure out.


A game that would of been at least a bit of fun with a better UI, but with the UI the game has it makes it unenjoyable and a chore to play. 4/10 as the UI makes the game bad.
Don't reccomend, the game is too frustrating to play, not worth playing.

I like this puzzle game, the story is nothing great but still okay, the graphics is for an non A+++ game good as a low budget indie game. The sound is okay, the walktrough is sometimes hard to get without really hints. There are some nice Secrets like a Ghost Busters Trap or amusing Achievements. Sure the game is short, the price is to high. So if you like puzzle games and dont aspect to much (hard puzzles) and to much playtime and get it with 50-66 or higher discount you could like this game. I enjoyed it and give the game 84 %. Thank you for reading and hopefully having fun with playing this game or go out of the way completly.

Funny, difficult, indie, first-person adventure and puzzler.

I liked the graphics, sound and scripting; just like the title and mentioned in the description, they are very reminiscent of early B-movie sci-fi. I mention this specifically as many of the negative reviews highlight this are seemingly missing the point. In the options, I chose the UK accent for my avatar and it was spot on. Each of the different areas had good graphic variation on the theme. I had no issue with the controls and found the gameplay fun.

The puzzles, pick ups and inventory choices are varied and nicely challenging. This is not an 'easy' game, you have been warned. You can expect to spend some time figuring out what to do next. There is a hint system, and depending on the difficulty level you can expect your avatar to give out timely advice. I did not find it frustrating, but then I like this genre.

There are a couple of infrequent bugs I experienced. Some graphical interactive items can cause visual glitches and bounce your avatar, nothing serious or game breaking. Another bug involving puzzles and inventory requires restarting the game client, but I did not lose any progress as the game autosaves at each puzzle. Minor inconvenience. But from what I have seen on the forum the developer is actively involved in improvements.

Recommended for chimps not chumps.

Albedo: Eyes from outer space is just about what you can expect from a game made by one man, and nothing really more.

With my experience with adventure games ranging back to the time of FMV games, I can safely say what I want to say about this game, and you can interpret it however you wish.

Albedo is one of those games made by people who want to break formulas and make their own sub-genres, and damn the consequences.

While it most definitely succeed in many regards as far as the puzzles go, there are many issues that make this game tough to recommend even though I did play it to the end and really enjoy the experience overall.

First are the graphics, they are not really as bad as some make them out to be, it's simply that there are many special effects used to hide just how simple they are, and the problem is that those effects never really mesh together well and only serve to make the game slow as hell if you enable them and constrict your vision on some important puzzle elements that interact with light later on, and make some puzzles that require speed a chore to work through.

The mechanics are most definitely the worst part of the experience, largely owing to how complicated they are made out to be, ironically in an attempt to make the game easier through radial menus and the like. Many other games are breaking out and trying new things, but at least they made that the mechanics gained simplicity through contextual input instead of just making use of whatever worked for other titles. It's really tough to get a hang on them until later on when you are forced to so you can survive.

Which brings me to my final two points, the actual gameplay and the story. Gameplay wise, I really liked the idea of merging FPS with adventure, and yet I wish both were at least segregated. To pull out weapons and use them quickly I have to go through the menu to get to the best weapon possible for the situation and it just adds frustration instead of actual tension.

The story is about as 70's and idiotic as you can imagine. Taken right out of pulp fiction sci-fi mags, it really did adhere to the formula and managed to get me to laugh my ♥♥♥ off at some points during the game. I just wish the voice acting was better, but I can't really fault it seeing as how it was mainly made by one guy.

That's really all I have to say on the subject, and if you do find the game cheap and don't really mind all the gimmicks I mentioned, then prepare for a nice adventure game that'll really make you wish it was made by a full studio or that something of the sort might happen with the developer in the future.
