Introducing the world of ASA

ASA takes place in 2057, in a futurist, realistic but alternative version of our world. In 2011, when Forté writes in his diary, he calls the Earth "Terra" and he says he works for a company called CSE, which doesn't exist in reality, but can be compared to our ESA (Europen Space Agency). Despite these few differences (we can also notice Saturn, called Catyph), Terra is our good old Earth.

These changes are intentional : I want the player to understand quickly that the sci-fi story counted in ASA moves sometimes towards fantasy, without the cliches of course, but magics or dreams can become a part of the game. The best example is the "Yellow Material", a strange cloud of bright particles that appear from time to time...
