Qasir Al-Wasat: A Night in-Between is a stealth action-adventure that takes place on an ominous night inside a wondrous palace, in-between worlds, on 12th century Syria. It features an invisible character, that needs to assassinate 3 targets and recover their weapons, while trying to avoid detection whenever possible. The character is fragile, and a single strike of a sword is enough to take it down. Our protagonist is invisible to the human eye and, although it may seem a too powerful ability, it still can be heard and covered in particles which can be seen by guards (such as the blood of it’s victims). The character besides pursuing this mission want to investigate and discover the mysteries and secrets the palace holds.

The main aesthetic of the game is that of the tension between action and investigation all the while avoiding direct confrontation with enemies. The palace is riddled with secrets, a rich story, nasty traps and an ancient treasure.

There are also some secondary aspects of the game, such as the nature of our protagonist, its penchant for criticizing and admiring humanity through a distant and cold gaze and the concept of aloneness that accompany this character. In Qasir, we test an approach for representing his perception of our world through the graphics and sounds. Everything that he considers weaker than him are represented in a less realistic way.

When I start the game I only get a black screen after the intro. I can hear some background noise (birds) but the screen remains black. Any ideas?

Can you access the menu? If so, maybe adjusting the lightning settings might solve the problem.
Or maybe it could be a video card problem, what is your video card?

I can't figure out how to acquire the Jewel of Heaven (or whatever it's called :D). I got the milk and water vials, but I can't get the rest. It's probably got something to do with the "three blood drops" room by the "warped" laboratory, but I can't figure out how to get in. Help?

Very cool stealth adventure game. The mechanics are straight forward and the story and setting are enticing. You play as an invisible, fragile, summoned demon that is contracted to kill 3 men. As you hunt your prey you must avoid guards and traps. You can kill the guards but doing so can cause you to get blood on you that other guards can see. There are also puzzles to solve, secrets to find and mysteries to unveil. All in all it's an excellent game even with the very few rough edges the current…
