Big update - New content

For last few months, we were really busy by working on really big update for Alone In Space.
We took your comments to our hearts and made some level design changes to the environment, tweak graphics, add several new puzzles and of course fixed all the bugs we could find. We also add more ship logs and messages to enhance the storyline of our game. Thank you @falagor for correction!
As you may guess all those things took a lot of time, so we don't have Linux and MAC version ready yet. For that, we're really sorry, but we'll start working on them ASAP. Same with localization. We'd like to see our game in most major languages, so if you want to be involved in traslating our game, you are free to go. All English texts can be found in ALONE IN SPACE_Data/StreamingAssets/languages/AIS_ENG.xml.

If you want to get the best experience of Alone In Space, we encourage you to Start a New Game.

About This Game

ALONE IN SPACE is a first person adventure.

Story


The story centers upon Alex, an employee of an intergalactic corporation in the field of terraforming new worlds. He works 42 light years from Earth on a planet called Miranda. The planet is in the process of terraformation - deliberately modifying the atmosphere, temperature, and topography to be similar to the environment of Earth. 

Alex now finds himself alone on the partially terraformed planet Miranda. Alex must find a way to survive the planet’s geologically unstable environment and solve the mystery of the crew’s disappearance before Miranda becomes his own tomb. 

Why did the terraforming process fail? What happened to the crew and where are they? Why is Alex supposedly the lone survivor on the base?

Main features

• Experience an immersive sci-fi adventure with an imaginative and captivating storyline from beginning to end.

• Walk in the footsteps of the ill-fated crew members of the Miranda station. Read their notes and transmissions to find out clues to help recreate the full storyline.
• Explore a world cloaked in mystery and danger, solve clever puzzles to help discover the questions that Alex must face, and survive being ALONE IN SPACE.

I think ALONE IN SPACE is beautiful game with puzzles. Controls are very simple and puzzles aren't so complicated so every kind of people can play this game. If you want to practice your brain cells and explore space base, be sure to buy this game.
And don't worry, It's not so scary as you think.

Pros
For £6.99 it's a good game albeit a minimalistic one
Relaced Si-Fi environment
Some interesting Puzzels

Cons
Could do with an element of suspense or danger
The Puzzels are somewhat simplistic
Could have more structure to the plot

Pretty nice game placed in space (well, its written in the name of the game so it should be in space!)
Just wake up and start making those nice puzzles to make your way through. And because you are alone and everyone else seems to be gone, you can play some minigames on the ship, cool! And also you can play with balls all the time :D

But seriously... this game is pretty cool, I like the puzzles (good idea with anomalies).
It´s made just by few people and I recommend it to everyone who likes space and balls.

+ good graphics
+ nice and easy puzzles
+ minigames
+ space!

- maybe too much corridors
- you could add some sound when the doors open, it´s weirdly quiet without it ;)
- my tennis ball stuck behind the chair, couldn´t get it out.. but I made it!

Buy it, play it, enjoy it.. that´s all ;)

I got this game hoping for an interesting expore-a-spaceship kind of game. The screenshots looked really interesting and I was eager to play it.

What I got was pretty much what eveyone's said ... a maze of corridors. Repetative environments. Lots and lots of boxes. The puzzles are of the variety of 'find the object and put it in a thing' or those sliding tile puzzles that are kind of obnoxious. I finally got to a really complex sliding tile puzzle that I couldn't solve after quite a bit of trying, found myself stuck in the corridor, and got sick of it. I went to YouTube to see if it's worth finishing the game -- spoilers, it's really super duper NOT worth it.

I really wanted to like this game -- I really, really wanted to like this game. But I just can't ... it kind of sucks. It "feels like" the developers padded this game to make it extra long. And I'm pretty sure the ending will disappoint everyone who's got the fortitude to put up with the long walk. It probably would be a lot more fun at about half the size, if I had finished the game in 4 hours instead of gotten frustrated by an obnoxious puzzle (... or maybe if the puzzles were more varied instead of just increasingly complicated sliding tiles) ... I think I would have liked this game a lot more.

Killed by a can I threw - 10/10

But seriously now.

It started bit rough for me, because I was too lazy to read all the text, but then I got into it another time and this time, I wasnt messing around. And I started really liking it. As not a fan of this genre, I didnt expect to dive into those little puzzles that much, but I did.

Graphics is decent for an indie game and the designe is pretty cool. Controls feel smooth and simplistic, so you can focus on the game, not how to get around.

Well I was hoping for a neat puzzle/adventure style game. You really have to not have a short attention span for this - I don't mean that in a "only smart people with focus can beat this game" I mean it in a "this game is kinda boring" way. Lot of exploring but the environment is too barren for this to be interesting for long. The puzzles are sparse and not especially clever or challenging.

The game doesn't make the best use of the space, the story is without any depth or relevance and I think I beat the game but it certainly didn't do any job of telling me that I had aside from bringing me back to the main menu in a different way to death. I won't reccomend this.

[update at bottom] I've played about 3 hrs of this game. It's a lot of samey corridors and crates. So many corridors in this terraforming base, so many crates. There are a few offices and bedrooms (I guess) and some store rooms for variety but everything generally looks the same. The environment is very, very bare bones, not much detail. Exploration is not a driving force of this game. I did get stuck once among some crates, so be careful where you jump about. (edit: may be fixed in future patches.)

The corridors are often maze like and everything is so samey looking that it's easy to get disoriented and discover yourself running around in circles once you've opened up enough doors in some sections.

There's a bit of a story that's told in fairly decent English (I've seen worse) but it seems pretty generic.

There's some puzzle solving, most of which is fairly simple. There are at least 2 sliding piece puzzles. I hate those with a passion. I'm currently stuck on the 2nd one. I don't think I'm going to spend any more time on it. The game is just not compelling enough to warrant the effort. edit: (well, since I bought it...)

It's been stable for me, no crashes. Also, at the time of this review you can rebind some keys, but not movement keys. If you don't use a standard QWERTY keyboard know how to switch keyboards on your OS.

Edit: key binding for movement keys seems to have been fixed in an update.

I got past the one troublesome (for me) puzzle and finished the game, which took about 5 hrs total. This game is more "escape the situation" than walking simulator or exploration game. Not much story but enough to explain what is going on. Decent enough if you are into that type of game. For the price, compared to other $10-15 games, I thought content was lacking a bit.

Alone in space is a minimalistic, well optimized, first person puzzle game with functional, nice looking graphics, without music and voice acting. But this is part of the game design and it doesn’t distract the atmosphere at all.

The story is told by computer terminal log files only. There are 20 sections, each of them need to be completed at once. (Auto save at the beginning of each level.) If you die at the end of a level, you have to start all over again. But if you are carefully, it’s not a big deal. (mostly) All puzzles are logical and overall easy to solve.

It is up to you whether 6-7 hours of gameplay is worth the price, or not. For me it is a clear recommendation.

Update: The last level is pretty challenging (tough puzzles & huge maze) and the end is not satisfactory... but still didn't change my mind.

I was expecting a story-rich game with challenging puzzles.
I got neither.
Not worth the price I paid.

Updated Review
With Pictures!

The game
You play as some guy - Spoiler - A clone of some guy rather, who was a hero and his gf who just so happened to be a DNA wizard stole his dead body made a clone of him who wakes up in some sort of cryostasis pod to find himself in a very grey and white space station. Devoid of most character besides some flipped over chairs and tables,

Some red, blue and sometimes orange boxes,
Red box
Blue, Grey and white boxes!

waiting for something to decompress
Wait here while we clean the room ,
or clean you,
Shower Fun Tiem!

the occasional mini game of breakout,
Dat some Breakout?
or some odd Game-Maker partially flash like game of an asteroid shooting clone.
Astroids?
Which I'm not complaining about at all, those were acutally really nifty and fun little addons. But they truely do seem to take away from the games seriousness and look like something put there to only waste time.

Meanwhile trekking though fairly easy kind of overused puzzles,
Pipe puzzle!
I could have gone and tried it myself, come back, and updated the code. But no, Why would I do that?
S.T.A.L.K.E.R.?

Though sometimes there were unique, interesting puzzles.
Don't smoke
Like that and the electricty wave one which i forgot to take photos of because I was too facinated by the extremely thin elevator.
Suck it in it's gonna be a squeeze.

or going into some room that has about a 50/50 chance to have nothing of importance in it.
This one?
No? How about this one?
No luck yet, the next one is bound to have something important in it
Still no? Hmm, why not try this one

Side note--- Those boxes in that last photo have no reflection for some reason.
Vampire Boxes?

Surely this room is... oh...

As well as many empty Lockers
Ooh What is this?
Oh..
Maybe this one
Oh...

The bathrooms had no mirrors, and for some reason it looks as though the workers resorted to doing their business in the sinks.
Not a single mirror
Ewww

And for some reason, while everything else had a fairly decent amount of detail. The Cans of soda, were really awkwardly out of place.
Soda

The Review
The Tennis balls sounded exactly like basketballs when thrown, which. Although having them in the game was a nifty thing, I found the sound being the same to be kind of cheating. And when you load into a new area, for some reason everything in your hand magically vanishes.

Overall it's not terrible but I still would not reccomend it, it has the ability to be a pretty fun puzzle game/story game. Though the difficulty to the puzzles were, to say the least, extremely easy. There weren't many bugs, aside from the once where I'd get stuck, yes I could probably have avoided those areas, however I like to explore in these kinds of games, and having some place that is basically a trap is not good. Though being able to get into all those places is fun. The game was not at all clunky, though everything moved slowly, there was no run button, i.e. you walk to make sure the game takes longer to get from point A to point B.

The sound and the "backdrop" or walls of the place were all so bland, Footsteps on an ever Diamond plate-like floor, Baseball and tennis balls that sound like the basketball as you throw it against the square/rectangular tiled white or grey walls. The occasional loud beeping sound of a system panel thing sending a warning. (Though I have to add you can disable those on the panel which I liked that little addition)

As a first title from this dev, I have played many firsts that were much worse. This isn't terrible, it's a good first puzzle game. However it has much missing, and could use a little more personality. If I could give this game a Neutral score, I would but there is none.

Old review with 15 minutes gametime everyone is complaining about.
I bought this game with the hopes that it'd be a decent story game. The premise of the story, although pretty over-used, seems like it could be a good a good story. However after walking around for 10 minutes looking through empty offices, long time wasting corridors and only hearing the sound of the footsteps, an occasional shake, and the normal spaceship electricity gone haywire sounds I found myself jumping over a box and getting trapped in an area I could not get out of. From the gameplay up until this point, it seems like the majority of the story/gameplay is going to take just long enough so you can't refund, be grey, sometimes shades of white, and maybe a red or orange something every once and a while.

Which a good 10 minutes into a game, the creator of this should have played through that part enough times to ensure someone didn't get trapped somewhere.

This game was not my favorite

It has a lot of potential though, with more development time it could be a really great game.

Pros:
  • I enjoyed the choice of minimalist sound effects. Throughout the game the only sounds are of your footsteps, machines/computers running, and wind.
  • I am a math nerd, so having the first password be a reference to pi was cool.

Mehs:
  • The visuals were fairly good. I was running it on the highest graphic settings and it was good enough quality that I was able to loose myself in the game and was comparable to other indie games. The elements did get a little repetitive over time. Having worked in the sort of facilities as the games settings (larger confusing maze like industrial buildings) I can tell you that people would normally designate different areas with colors. The game uses a system of door numbers, but these didn’t seem to have any internal story meaning. Rather, the next door you needed to go through had a higher number than the last door you went through.
  • The storyline was interesting, but it could have been filled out a little more. The information was delivered via messages and log entries of the evacuated crew. The messages lacked much in the way of emotional content and that they were arranged in chronological order as you play through felt contrived. Having time stamps and presenting them out of order would have felt more realistic.
  • The puzzles were hit or miss on the level of difficulty and enjoyableness. The types of puzzles were connect the dots using circuit relays, slide puzzles to connect circuit relays, and matching puzzles to connect circuit relays.

Cons:
  • There is one section that almost made me quit the game. There is a section of the game where you have to traverse a room via jumping on top of containers to avoid a deadly radiation anomaly. It felt forced and disjointed with the rest of the game.
  • The ending is terrible. It feels imcomplete.

I've been playing this game for about an hour. it would be a good expansion to space engineers, getting your hands dirty. but whoever wrote the ingame texts, i.e. the story that you piece together from the computer displays, they need to learn english or get a decent translator. its like a 12 year old wrote it. #icanhazcheeseburger

would i recommend....i'll need to get further in before i can comment

This game is just aweful. You wander around opening doors. They added a few arcade games at some consoles, but it just seems sad. Also it's just silence; at least add some music to dress up how bad this is.
