Description

Catyph: The Kunci Experiment is a 1st person Sci-Fi adventure game. Discover the world and mechanisms of Tytaah, a moon of planet Catyph divided into 6 varied regions. Try to discover what the Kunci is, and who created it. "In 2062, Men from Terra have access to a new technology - the Blue Matter - developed from a mysterious Black Cube they found 5 years before (note: this refers directly to the events of ASA, in 2057, but the 2 games can be played separately). With this new power, Terrans decide to explore for the first time their solar system, in search for signs of intelligent life. They send YOU at the discovery of planet Catyph and its moons. After a series of strange events, you finally land on Tytaah." Exploration and discovery are the keywords of this adventure, and are necessary to understand and solve the challenging puzzles. The gameplay reminds what you can find in most 1st person adventure games such as Myst or Rhem. Catyph and ASA are both part of the Black Cube series (http://www.theblackcube.fr).
History

Catyph: The Kunci Experiment was self-funded and developed by a single person (except for music and a few other things) with the Visionaire Studio engine, After Effects and 3dsmax. "I took the decision to start this project in 2014 when I discovered that several people were asking for a sequel to ASA. Even though Catyph is not a direct sequel, it will try to correct the mistakes of my first game, and will show (I hope) an evolution in my work". In March 2015, the release of ASA: A Space Adventure - Remastered Edition (first game developed with Visionaire Studio by Simon Says: Play!) confirmed that Catyph has intrigued many players in the world. For more details about the development of Catyph, please read the Making Of (through one of the links below).

No need to apologize, I much prefer it this way with the Official release thread Sheriff. I just wanted to make sure everyone knew.

It should also be noted that a DVD version of Catyph can be purchased from the Developer HERE How many newly released games have that now-a-days? Also there is supposed to be a Humble Store release soon.

I enjoyed the first one so much. I actually think it might be the best puzzle-adventure of all time (by which I mean RHEM-like: minimal plot, minimal graphics, everything focusing on the multi-layered extremely difficult puzzles). I have been eagerly anticipating this release and plan on buying it. The first one had a rocky start, and was arguably moderately broken before the remastered release. So the (previously first time developer) has obviously learned a lot, and there is every reason to be optimistic with this latest release.

A few moths ago he was in some Myst-Jam and released a short game in the same style and universe as both ASA and its new sequel Catyph. If anyone is unsure about his style, and want to give it a go for free, or are sure and want more of it, give MYHA a try (http://www.theblackcube.fr/myha.html).

Its should be noted that Catyph is not a direct sequel to ASA: A Space Adventure and doesn’t require you to play ASA first

I loved ASA so I've immediately purchased Catyph!!
After few minutes gaming, I can assure you that it sounds quite interesting!

GreyFuss is right in saying that Catyph is not a sequel, and the author himself has confirmed it. You can just find some mentions to the events occurred in ASA but they do not play a decisive role.

Thank you Ana for the announcement! If anyone here has any question about the game, you can ask me here and I'll do my best to help! (oh I'm the developer, in case you didn't know)

Thanks for the kind words wisnoskij! I hope you'll enjoy Catyph too. It is a bit different of ASA, more "exotic" maybe (I can't find the word, but you'll see). I didn't want to do the exact same game after all! ahah. But it's still a vast world with logical challenging puzzles. I think it's still close to Myst and Rhem in the good way (for people who like the genre).

And Hi Cookie, Vairon and Greyfuss smile

Thanks for the links!

Good luck with the game Simon! I especially liked your "Making of" page. It should interest everyone even remotely interested in game making.
