    Yes, you blind fatty.

    The visuals are good, the puzzle are intuitive and well-designed (not all of them), there is items highlighting (if you press Space) and the game got charm. It's made by Germans but it's not the standard Daedalic shit. It's quite good.

    On the opposite side, the story is not great, the loading times are long (wtf!?) and there are critical bugs (if you cancel animations). I lost like 1-2 hours of progress. Really frustrating.

    Note: There is one thing which is really annoys me: puzzle items must be triggered. That's why I wasted a lot of time, because it doesn't matter how many times you search a pile of junk, the items will appear there only after some conversation. Shitty scripting.

    I will give the game another chance but if it bugs again then I will drop it.

    The creators of ASA : A space Adventure released Kitrinos, a small game which looks fun :

    By the way it seems it was made for the AdventureJam2018 and I've not played it yet, but from the games I've played from the jam I can recommend :
    - SnowSpirit, very atmospheric game by the guy making Cascade quest who also made Void quest and the Snails Trek series.

    - Space Quest 1 which really plays like a tiny Sierra game like the presentation suggests.
