ASA: A Space Adventure is a first-person slideshow adventure game made in tribute to Riven and 2001: A Space Odyssey. You play in 2057 as an astronaut who finds a strange black cube, which will teleport him on an unknown spaceship called the Ark. You will soon discover that you're not the first astronaut from planet Terra to come here : Philip Forte lived the very same experience in 2011 and, fortunately, he left a diary explaining his story. With this help, you will visit the Ark and try to access the various environments and planets, with one single thing in mind : going back home ! ASA was created by a single person for the love of puzzle games of an era, and if you're fond of the Myst or Rhem series, it's more likely that you will enjoy this journey ! <<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!>> (AdventureGamers.com)
A gameplay video of ASA: A Space Adventure explained by PlayDB : "I love this game, it is however way too difficult for me, but i'm not really a Puzzle genius [...] Overall the game is EPIC though".

Okay, I think it can be quite difficult to understand what ASA is exaclty ; there aren't so many medias that speak of the game and the screenshots don't always tell much. So I have good news, PlayDB posted a video of the beginning of the game on their youtube channel - a video with a lot of speech. It's 20 minutes long so you can make yourself a good idea of this space Adventure !
PlayDB - ASA: A Space Adventure :
The video starts from the main menu of ASA and you can see all the beginning after they click on "new game", from the opening movie to the very first steps on the Ark : opening the first door, visiting other areas. Be careful though, it will show you the solution of some puzzles.
The comments of the video seem very funny (although I didn't understood everyting as I'm not english), and they make it very lively and interesting to watch.
Thanks to PlayDB for their work, that was much appreciated, and a very good surprise ;)
