Reviews

“Catyph is the sequel to ASA: A Space Adventure, and is once again mostly the work of one man, Simon Mesnard, who is the game’s primary designer, artist, writer, animator and programmer. I’ve played ASA, and as solid as that debut adventure was, I found many improvements this time around. The environments are larger and animation now brings them to life. Navigation is smoother and the voice-overs are more engaging, particularly those of Germinal and Lantier. [...] It took me almost 35 hours to finish this game, and by the time the credits launched, I really did feel as though I had been on a space odyssey.”
4/5 – Adventure Gamers

“If you’ve never played any entries in this series and are wondering if it’s for you, look no further than its inspiration. Do you like first person explorative games such as Myst? If so, it’s for you. If not, I can’t recommend it, as this isn’t some sort of fusion game with another genre. What’s in store for those of you that enjoy the genre though, you’ve got a lot to look forward to in your exploration.”

About This Game

About

"In 2062, Men from Terra have access to a new technology from a mysterious Black Cube they found 5 years before. With this new power, they decide to explore their solar system, in search for signs of intelligent life. They send you at the discovery of planet Catyph and its moon Tytaah." CATYPH: The Kunci Experiment is Another Space Adventure reminiscent of Myst and Rhem, and you can absolutely play it without knowing anything about the first Black Cube game, ASA. With the help of the data that you collect on Tytaah, you must attempt to access the 7 regions of this moon. Your main mission: understand what the Kunci is. The whole game relies on observation, discovery and exploration.

CATYPH is an independant and self-funded game, mainly created by one person. It has been envisaged as an experience, an interactive story based on exploration and logical puzzles. This prerendered 3D game is made of static pictures with video transitions.
