This is the trailer of this new edition.


Thank you very much to everyone who supported me. I really hope you will like the game as much as other people liked the original edition 2 years ago. It has been a tough work to recreate ASA from scratch with another engine. Honestly we could have just re-released the game "as is" on Steam. I mean, it's the original edition from 2012 that was greenlit in 2014, and we had absolutely no obligation to develop this Remastered Edition! ASA on Steam could have been the exact same game than on Desura actually. We just thought it was much better to improve it for you, and a way to show that I am doing my best to create interesting games. It is important for me that you like ASA, even if I know it's not perfect. The graphics could probably be much better, and in realtime 3d, but we're really a small team (actually we were just 2 people on this game!). Andrea Rinaldi did an impressive job to recreate ASA in Visionaire Studio, and I know he didn't sleep a lot lately (neither did I!). I would like to take this opportunity to remind that I am now working on Catyph: The Kunci Experiment (www.catyph.fr), which is another point & click game in the Black Cube series. The development of Catyph has been much slower than expected, particularly because of ASA: Remastered, but I think that it's worth it. If you have the possibility to play ASA and if you like it, please keep in mind that Catyph will come soon. I wish you a good space adventure :) -Simon
