Black Cube news

Hi everyone!

Catyph: Light Edition is finished and currently in private Beta Test. If everything goes well, this modified version will be available somewhere in July.
You can still see the list of changes here:

Catyph LE will be free if you already purchased the original game and should be downloaded as an automatic update as soon as it is released.

You may also be aware that we recently released a nice short game called Kitrinos: this free adventure is a prequel to the Black Cube series, and will be published on Steam around July 16th. Yes as I said it will be free! You can already check the page here:

Last but not least, I have finally paid the submission fee for Myha: Return to the Lost Island (successful Kickstarter last year, thanks to everyone). The game makes good progress and we hope that you didn't miss the private playable demo if you had chosen this reward.

Next I plan to finish my work on Boïnihi: The K'i Codex, the next game in the series.

You can learn more about all these games on the official site of the series: www.theblackcube.fr

All existing Black Cube games will thus be available together on Steam within a few months. They are all DRM-free, and you can currently benefit of -25% on ASA and Catyph during Steam Summer sales:

Thanks for your support during all these years!

“With a captivating backstory and engaging, challenging puzzles, ASA: A Space Adventure is a welcome addition to the pantheon of Myst-style puzzle-adventure games.”
4/5 – Adventure Gamers

“Remarquable!”
15/20 – http://www.jeuxvideo.com/articles/0001/00018239-asa-a-space-adventure-test.htm

“ASA: A Space Adventure took me a a good long while, and allowing for the inevitable puzzle frustrations which were largely all of my doing, I enjoyed almost every bit of it. The considerable ‘ups’ certainly make up for the fairly few ‘downs’. If you enjoy these sorts of games, you will likely be well pleased.”

About This Game

Summary

ASA: A Space Adventure was originally created with love by a single person, and now comes back in a HD remake thanks to the help of developer Andrea Rinaldi. ASA is a first-person slideshow adventure game (point & click) reminiscent of famous games such as the Myst and Rhem series. Visit a vast spaceship called The Ark, divided into several areas, and discover the truth behind the Cubes and their creators...
You'll probably need a pen and a paper to write down your notes in order to solve the challenging puzzles! This game can be very difficult for people who are not familiar with the genre.

In 2057, an astronaut finds a strange Black Cube in Space, and is teleported onto a mysterious spaceship called the Ark. You soon discover that he's not the first astronaut from planet Terra to arrive here: Philip Forte lived through the very same experience in 2011 and, fortunately, left a diary explaining his story. With this help, you visit the Ark, with one single goal in mind: getting back home!

ASA: Remastered Edition is an improved version of the game originally released in January 2013 by Simon Mesnard. It is part of the Black Cube series, a collection of Sci-Fi projects based on a book.


Original version features:

  • 9 different environments (6 areas on the main spaceship, 2 planets, 1 satellite)
  • 10 hours of gameplay
  • a story illustrated with several CG movies for a better immersion
  • rythmed with an original soundtrack by Stélian Derenne (Karreo).
  • walk in the steps of a disapeared astronaut. Read his diary to find clues and recreate the full storyline.
  • discover the first released game of the Black Cube series

New in this HD Remake:

ASA: Remastered Edition is the exact same than the original ASA game, except that we've been working on several new features specifically for the Steam release. Despite a lot of efforts in the past, the original version released in 2013 presented different issues that could not be solved, so we decided to restart from scratch with a new game engine! Here's the list of new features:

  • Play in HD 1920x800 (1024x432 for the original game) - we have re-rendered all the backgrounds from the original 3D scenes (not a photoshop upscale!)
  • Developed with Visonaire Studio, allowing more flexibility and stability
  • We've added visual aids to identify the hotspots
  • More translations, no need to patch anymore! (English, French, Italian, Spanish and German)
  • Available for Windows, Mac and Linux

System Requirements

    Minimum:
    • OS: Windows Xp, Vista, 7, 8
    • Processor: Duo Core @ 1.8Ghz+ (approx)
