Destructoid

早期アクセス版2015年1月の時点でのレビューになります。
"おすすめしない"を選択しましたが、ある一点の理由に起因するもので根本にあるものには楽しさを感じられました。

Pros
+立体的、動的なパズル
+ロックピッキングのミニゲームが凝っている
+ユニークなビジュアル
+開発者が親切

Cons
-あまりにも不便なUIと操作
-アクションが要求される場面
-機能していないヒント

レトロSFをモチーフにしたFPS風のパズル・アドベンチャー。ポイント・アンド・クリックの脱出ゲームの様にアイテムを探し謎を解き密室から脱出することが主な内容。

物理演算を使った動的なパズルや立体的な視点を生かしたトリックなどユニークな謎解きが随所にある。各種パズルシーンも従来見かけるようなパズルを一段階複雑にしたような内容で面白さのある難しさが感じられた。南京錠やダイヤル錠の解錠を行う場面では、鍵の種類ごとに実物に近い本格的なピッキングを行うとても凝ったミニゲームが用意されている。レトロSF風のビジュアルもユニークで良い。

しかし、UIと操作方法があまりにも複雑かつ不便でゲームプレイの全てがそれに阻害されている。一部操作はキーに対応しているとはいえ、基本的には全ての行動をマウススクロールでメニューからひとつひとつ対応したアイコンを選択しなければならない。

謎解きに必要な「調べる」「拾う」「ボタンを押す」といった基本的な行動にもメニューからそれぞれのアイコンを選択して行う。所持アイテムを一度使用するにも、インベントリメニューからアイテムのアイコンを選んで選択、動作メニューからアイテムの使用方法アイコンを選択、という回りくどい操作が毎回要求される。複数のアイテムを組み合わせて使用する場面やアクションが要求される場面ではまともに操作すること自体が難しいだろう。

直感的な操作が不可能なため、謎解きにおいて「プレイヤーは何ができて何ができないのか」が非常に解りづらくなってしまっており、本来の謎解きではない理不尽な難しさが付加されてしまっているように思えた。各種アイコンが画面中央に大きく表示されて対象物が見えなくなってしまうのもよろしくない。

プレイしていて謎解きの楽しさは感じられたものの、操作に起因する難しさからフラストレーションを感じてしまうことが多かった。本作は現在早期アクセスタイトルであり、進行不可能になる不具合や難しいパズルに対してはフォーラム上で開発者が親切に対応している。将来的に自身が不満を感じている点が改善されたら"おすすめします"にしたいと思う。

A weird little puzzle based game that reminds me of X-Files and some of those older semi-creepy scifi shows. I'm not normally a fan of puzzle games but the scenes are full of ambience and weird little details that kept me interested in exploring.

From the video I thought it was a mix of fps with puzzle elements but it is most definitely a puzzle gamer primarily in the vein of Myst/Riven .

+ Excellent weird creepy scifi atmosphere and details
+ Puzzles are a good balance to keep you looking around without being unbearable click fests to find the right pixel
+ Lots of details in the scenes and different objects and environment to interact with

If you like puzzles and/or unique creepy scifi settings, definitely this is worth checking out. After I got tired of the puzzles (just not my genre nothing wrong with the game), I went and watched some Let's Play videos because I liked the setting.

In my short time playing this, thought i'd write a review of sorts. Albedo: Eyes from Outer Space is one of the coolest and challenging 1st person games around. Outstanding graphics, sounds, and atmosphere. A homage to the classic sci-fi movies of old is an understatement. More of a realtime FP game in the style of the great text adventure based games of the late 70's early 80's. The Lurking Horror kinda rings a bell. Game mechanics that seem to be complex but do not, if you think with common sense.

I killed a giant eyed squid monster using a rat, vending machine and some candy. The order in which you do it, is up to you to figure out. That thing constantly bashing at the door until it finally broke through, i had to end it's miserable life. Onto the next room. A fire raging in some dreary, plumbers nightmare hallway. A fire was raging in the hallway probably caused from the monster thrashing about as it smelled my presence. Who am i in this game? A creature, a mortal, a robot? I don't know yet.

A leaking hose i spotted nearby a sink on the floor. Turned on the water, picked up the hose and put the flames out. Success. I filled a bucket with water and the water actually filled the bucket. Found a putrid melon sized eyeball amongst the waste. Dumped the water out and set the bucket down near a wall, took a few steps back and threw the eye into it. 2 points. Thought to myself "hey, i'll try for a 3pointer. Went a bit further back and away the eye went. Probably the most fun that eye ever seen. It bounced off the wall just right and into the bucket. Achievement unlocked. That was just the first 10 minutes of the game. It'll be a long journey, i have no idea what to expect.

It's details like that that set this game FAR apart most other FPS on the market. Very highly recommended. 10/10 would squash another one-eyed monstosity with a vending machine again

Now that's an intriguing game, I have never seen anything like that before - and so far it seems pretty well done and has a lot of potential!

I'll start the review with a few bad points (because there aren't many at all):
*I found the interface VERY uncomfortable. Played the game for almost 5 hours and I feel I still didn't get used to it, as even 5 hours and a couple of levels into the game I found myself still confused and not getting to the action I meant to do rigt away. I guess they tried to do something more intuitive that would fit the game's style but I really found the whole interactions and inventory business confusing.
*Story is almost non-existant. Perhaps in the full game? I sure so hope so..
*Another thing which doesn't really concern the game itself, but nore about wrong advertisement - the game seems like an 'action-adventure' type, with combats and killings etc... But I've barely encountered action sequences in the game itself. It's mostly just puzzles. Again, maybe in the finished game?

Anyway, even with these minor problems, and some more which you could expect from an unfinished product, this game is truly a gem. It's basically just a bunch of puzzles, but unlike many modern adventure games (or video games in general), it doesn't take the players as stupid fellas.
This game is pretty tough and challanging, but not in a terrible way, not in the "oh ♥♥♥♥ I'd have never figured that out!" way, but in a satisfying way. You have to truly pay attention to your surrounding, be sharp and creative, and if you manage to solve a riddle on your own it's usually very satisfying!
The other technical aspects of the game are also great, the horror setting is very bizzare, creepy and fills you with uneasiness.

Personally I quit the game for now, as it got too complicated for me, even on the easy level.
I still think the game is great, though, and am looking forward for the full product - hopefully more polished, wiith some more story, more hints and perhaps a walkthrough for the tough sections!

I dont ever excpect to beat this game.

This is the hardest puzzler I have seen in years. (Last ones were the portal series)

11/10

1 Puzzle from this game a day takes FOREVER to notice that one object you DIDNT notice on the floor like a green hose.

and on LOWEST Graphics (since my computer cant handle that powerfull of graphics) the game looks brilliant. You did good (INSERT COMPANY NAME HERE) you did good.

テレレレーン
ALBEDO : EYES FROM OUTER SPACE

ストーリー
主人公は極秘研究施設JUPITERの夜間警備員。
ある日突然とてつもない衝撃で建物が崩壊し、主人公は倉庫に閉じ込められてしまう。
正体不明のモンスターが溢れかえり、廃墟と化した研究施設から脱出しようと試みるが…

といった感じのストーリー。たぶん。(いきなり始まる上にとくに説明もないので)


謎解き
ストアのPVやSSを見て、Bi〇sh〇ckにB級SF映画をブッコんだような物だと勝手に思い込んでいたが、これはFPSというより一人称視点の脱出ゲームだった。
落ちているアイテムを活用し、研究施設から脱出しよう。
(PVにあるような銃を使った戦闘ももちろんあることにはある)

自分は脱出ゲームが苦手で、よく行き詰まると画面全体をクリックしまくって無理やりオブジェクトを探すという最終手段に出る。
そしてクリックするのに疲れて投げ出すことが多いのだが、本作はマウスホイール(またはtab)でオブジェクトのヒント表示をしてくれる。便利。
また、謎解き自体の難易度は丁度よく、ちゃんと観察していないと軽く詰むこともあるが、ヒント連打しながら落ち着いて考えるとそのうち解ける。結構凝ったギミックも多く、ニヤリとすることもある。

当然、日本語対応はしていないが、使われている英語は簡単なので攻略に問題はない。


グラフィック
グラフィックは特別綺麗なわけではないが、レトロなB級SFっぽさが凄く良い。
UFOの登場シーンやイベントシーンではF12連打するしかなかった。
ただ所々見辛い場所があり、ちょっと酔いそうになることもあった。
現時点でオプションからFov調整は出来ない様子なので酔いやすい人は注意(そのうち実装されるらしい)


早期アクセス
本作は早期アクセスのため、ストーリーも未完成である。
2014年12/31現在、Part 1とPart 2のみ遊ぶことができ、今後のアップデートで増えていく様子。
(ちなみに自力で解こうとしたらPart 2までで9時間ほどかかった)

製作者からは本作への愛が感じられ、
コミュニティでユーザーのフィードバックを求めていたり、
「このギミック解けねぇバグじゃねーの」という書き込みにもきちんと対応していたり、
スクリーンショットをアップロードするとイイネしてくれたりコメントしてくれたりする。

まだストーリーが途中までしか出来ていないので手放しでオススメは出来ないが、
このB級感溢れる雰囲気が好きな方はぜひ

---------------
追記 2015年1/29
このバージョンではFov調整は実装されなかったもののオプション周りが追加され、以前よりは快適にプレイできるようになった。
(難易度調整も可能になった様子。所々アクションを要求される場面もあるので、詰みそうな場合にあり難いかもしれない。)
追加されたステージも面白く、一気にクリアしてしまった。
次回のアップデートも楽しみである。

プレイ感は、探索装置が最初のマップで手に入り、それが
その都度の目的を示めしてくれるので、謎解きは行き詰ることは
ないですが、少し頭をひねるくらいのバランスです。
(私はアドベンチャー+パズルが得意ではありません)

今マップ5つ目ですが、結構おもしろくアドベンチャーしています。
クリーチャーの理不尽な攻撃もないです。

グラフィックは粗くて秀麗ではないのですが、オブジェクト(建物・設備)や
光の明暗、炎、クリーチャー、目の前を泳ぐ魚まですべてが
違和感なく感じ、暗さの中から色彩を浮き立たせるような不思議な
Albedoの世界をよく表現していると思います。
しいていえば、遠近感が少し分かりにくい感じがしました。

さて、主題となるAlbedoですが、影響を与える根源を探すのか、影響を
受けるさまざまな物と対峙していくのかこれから楽しくプレイしていきたい
と思います。

以上より、ムービーで興味をもたれた方は、是非お薦めします。

It's just another boring night on the job for John T. Langley, nightwatch at the space station JUPITER, and the only solace from this monotonous position as a lowly guard amongst the important scientists working on god only knows what kind of experiment is yet another drinking binge. Who can blame him really? With the mundane day-in and day-out occupation of sitting and watching, wondering what exciting experiments your peers at the base could be conducting, left only to guess what the strange sounds behind doors late on the night shift really are.

The last scientist leaves for the night, wishing you a goodnight and marking the start of he most boring, lonely part of your job. You get up to stretch your legs shocked only to find the ground beneath you suddenly crack apart and swallow you into the depths of the unknown recesses of this diabolical research facility amongst its many secrets.

Developer Fabrizio Zagaglia sets out to create a new kind of first person experience, shedding the current trend of bland military shooters and free to play models in favor of a rich 60's sci-fi style and a unique approach to adventure game story telling. When asking Fabrizio what brought about his decision to go with this unique setting and its retro flavor he replied, "The main goal was to make something with this kind of mood, maybe a bit naive, simplistic and ingenuous... but full of mystery, astonishment... amazement that I can find only in old sci-fi operas, rather than make an explicit rip off of 60s sci-fi series. Nowadays it's all too serious, realistic, evil... cold..."

"I aimed to avoid the current mainstream typical features. Take for example the flatness of games like COD... or the F2P and socialgames drifts etc. Of course, still there are good things, and still exists interesting "new" or derivative genres ( sandbox, narrative and art games and so on)... but overall I feel a lack of "something" that I can find instead in 90s games... something similar to what I can find in 60s scifi series and can't find in the newest ones."


Albedo isn't just a first person action game as it may seem at first glance, it's clearly a thinking person's adventure that sets out to wrack your brain on tough and puzzling situations in order to make your daring escape from each obstacle-ridden area. The starting room alone had me guessing for awhile, combing through the locked and wasted sci-fi storage room for pieces of the trial-and-error puzzle I had to put together in order to trick and trap the oncoming and unseen terror from beyond the locked door before me. I was reminded of a much tenser, trippier and sci-fi oriented Myst, and that's a very good thing.

Albedo: The Eyes from Outer Space is a sci-fi geeks dream come true, a wonderful combination of adventure game situations and logic solving from the perspective of a first person shooter. All with just a touch of retro-inspired action and brawls with strange alien creatures that evoke the same kind of love I have for monster designs of classic series like Doom.

Each of the different rooms of the sprawling space complex acts as a tough situation of trial and error puzzle solving, forcing you to use the surroundings to your advantage scavenging pieces of useful material to combine with parts of the environment and further reveal the path ahead. These are extremely small details usually and will require every bit of your unbridled attention to even find. You'll be forced to keep your eyes peeled for the tiniest of details from grabbing a paperclip off of a seemingly unimportant stack of papers to recycle as a lock-pick to finding secret notes slipped under locked doors with mysterious passwords. It's beyond easy to gloss over the most obvious clues, but ultimately they feel very rewarding when discovered.

Although the logic and puzzle solving are tough as nails and may even leave you feeling as if at a dead end sometimes, there is always hope thanks to the strange and terrestrial Temporal Dilation Tool, which seems to show some sort of an alternate world where problems are fixed and solutions are highlighted.

The settings are detailed and vibrant in a grotesque organic sort of way, with each living membrane that plasters the wall gleaming with vivid texture and giving off strange phosphorescent lights of warm and strangely comforting natural hues. The lab itself and the tools around you, including the aforementioned Temporal Dilation Tool give a very retro/future feeling to your surroundings with the tinted green and static-y glow of the hologram and rustic qualities to metal surfaces.

One thing is certain when stepping through the deteriorating halls of JUPITER; a lot of care, love, and devotion to the genre went into creating this intense set-piece.

Even in its early access state of ongoing updates it's hard to find faults with Albedo: The Eyes from Outer Space, especially with the small amount of people involved with its development considered. With an exciting cliffhanger ending and more content on the horizon there's really no bad time to get involved with the game and watch the adventure of John T. Langley continue to spiral into something even more insane.

PLEASE KEEP IN MIND THAT THIS IS AN EARLY ACCESS REVIEW, AND DOES NOT DESCRIBE THE FINAL PRODUCT OF THE GAME!!!

This game is AWESOME!

But, Mr. Paper! Isn't this game still in early access??

To answer your question is a simple 'yes', but there are so many reasons to consider a purchase. For one big thing, the game had started development in 2002, and has been in development ever since. The developer deserves at least SOMETHING after a ~12 year development period!

Let me go ahead and begin with the pros:

  • Graphics are certainly unique. Tinted a slight tan, providing a very eerie mood.
  • Great environmental interaction! (seriously, I'm not joking)
  • The little things: small puzzles, such as picking locks, are ideas I've never seen before.
  • Demons that make your blood run cold, yet at the same time, give you a hearty chuckle. Not in the bad way! In the way that makes you think This really fits in with the game's theme, does it not!
  • INTENSE FIGHTING, MOTHERF_CKER!

Although, it is told that when there is a positive, there exists a negative.

  • Certain models could be upped in their graphics more.
  • Some areas can be dark at times.
  • Not so much a tutorial. It does say things like This button does that! and That button does this! But it doesn't help you out much in solving the first puzzle. It provides hints, but sometimes, you will get stuck. EXTREME PROTIP: PUNCH TAB TO LIGHT UP EVERYTHING YOU CAN INTERACT WITH FOR A SECOND!
  • Speaking of puzzles, they can be demanding sometimes. Please take the time to acknowledge what I said before: When I say Great environmental interaction! I am really, really not joking. But don't worry! Once you get the hang of what to do in the first few puzzles, you'll get the hang of it!

Alriiight, so let's get down to dumming this all down.

Supporting the developer can really come in handy right now, due to the extremely unpopular state this game doesn't seem to be moving out of as of current.

All and all, this is recommended by me... If you want to support the developer! If you buy it now, you may not receive all that you were hoping for just now, but if the game has been in development for roughly 12 years already, I don't think the developer will be backing down anytime soon.

Oh yeah! A note to the developer:

PLEASE, KEEP DOING WHAT YOU'RE DOING! BECAUSE WHAT YOU'RE DOING IS A REALLY DAMNED GOOD JOB!

As far as I can tell, if the game continues development at it's pace, it will become one of two things:

  • A highly popular game on Steam.
  • A VERY highly underrated game on Steam!

Right now, a solid 8/10. This game has an extremely high potential!

The feeling is real, Its easy to get use to the controls, the puzzles are intuitive, the save game is without checkpoints and its a good thing. The object options changes to attacking when facing a monster. The fighting is intense !

This game had me at the trailer. I love the feeling, the aesthetic, the atmosphere. All of it just culminates into this wonderfully weird game that I absolutely love. The puzzle design so far is quite good, and the controls are what I expected them to be; a little wonky, but in a good way. It helps the immersion, so I'm not gonna dock it for that. Really the only thing I'm seeing is the optimization is terrible, but that's to be expected in an early access title.

So far, this game gets a great big thumb's up from me. It's a fantastically strange puzzle/horror/comedy game that really scratches the itch for... strange puzzle/horror/comedy games...

Albedo is a great sci-fi thriller puzzle game. The atmosphere and art style are pleasantly grimey and dark. The levels are interesting and enjoyable to explore. The puzzles have many layers and require a fair amount of thought and exploration to solve. The User Interface is unique and pleasing to the eye in most cases, although it can be a bit clunky at times. The Early Acess levels focus more on puzzles than combat. However, the Work In Progress levels include gun=play which is overall smooth and enjoyable. It may be Early Access, but it is well produced and polished. The Early Access levels are worth the full price in my opinion. I can't wait to see what's next!

A challenging puzzle game that takes place in a typical 70s science fiction movie (almost).

There is really nothing much i can say about this game other than it's puzzles. the art and visuals are impressive and the puzzles are challening some are easy, others are obvious and there are of course the hard ones.

The replay value? well if you love challenging hard puzzle games this is the one to get.

I would not recommend it to an average gamer, But i do recommend this for the puzzle gamers.

I've been following a lot of new releases and this is one of few that caught my eye! The trailer looked pretty cool (I love space themed games) and the monsters looked interesting. I didn't know what to expect when I first played, but it turned out to be a pretty fun game :).

The game is a mix of puzzle solving and alien ♥♥♥ kicking =P! The puzzle solving is actually challenging and fun. If you're looking for a game to flex your brain a bit and get a few scares, then this is the game for you!

First Impressions:

Let me preface this by saying that I haven't spent a lot of time with the game, which is retrospect is exactly what the game expects you to do. What little I did play, I didn't really enjoy and often found myself frustrated. Without any sort of tutorial to guide me, I found myself stuck in the very first room for about twenty minutes just messing around with the various objects. Based on the trailers, I expected a FPS sci-fi game with an emphasis on the "S"...instead I discovered this game to be extremely puzzle heavy.

It's not that I don't enjoy puzzles, but the help system (TAB key) is absolutely useless. "I need to repair the door"...way to state the obvious! I longed for an escalating help system as featured in BTTF:TG that gave me the answers after so many hint requests. What's the point of having a difficulty setting if your puzzles are going to be that demanding regardless? That's not to say it won't be fun for some who have the time to devote to solving these puzzles, but it is clearly not for me (at least, at present).

I'm giving it a positive recommend because the setting and ambiance is indeed fairly good, but I would like to see options / mechanics to help out new/casual players who don't want to spend hours trying to solve complex puzzles. "Deadfall Adventures" incorporated multiple difficulty levels for the puzzles alone, for example. I grabbed this for cheap during a Bundle Stars sale (10 games for $4) so I'm not too miffed that I didn't enjoy this title. Since the game is Early Access, I reserve the right to change my opinion as development continues.

A really addictive game that promises fun and a lot of hours of gameplay! I really recommend it to everyone who wants to have a good time and discover the awesome storyline of Albedo: Eyes from Outer Space. The graphics and the music are really amazing too :D

If you are a fan of old-school point-and-click, this is the game for you. Puzzles are incredibly well designed, they will turn on your brain (have one is a requirement, sorry zombies or CoD players). The atmosphere is great and addicting, and exploring is really fun. If you look carefully you can find a lot of cool references (e.g. The Day of Tentacle).

And the developer is super-open to users' feedbacks, so the final version cannot be a worsening of this. Consider buying, if you want to be part of this :)
