Asterism is an adventure game about stars, exploration, and love taking place in between our world and a mysterious parallel dimension, home of superior alien beings. A team of scientists is running an experiment to determine if star patterns can be used as a key to communicate with parallel dimensions. The experiment goes wrong and black holes start growing in our world. The first to experience the real danger of this are Jin and his best friend Coy which gets kidnapped by the alien beings and taken into their dimension for apparently no reasons. The team of scientists later find out that Jin is the only one able to travel in and out the parallel dimension due to a special connection he has with Coy. It's now up to Jin to save his friend and our world. Will the love between Jin and Coy prevail upon everything?
Asterism can be considered a sort of Metroidvania with levels. The player will play as Jin and explore his world, traveling between cities and new places in order to find and clear all the black holes. That's where the level based structure comes into action, every time Jin will find and teleport into a black hole the player will face a series of levels to clear with a clever 2D / 3D game mechanic based on perspective.
Release date is TBA. We've been working on this project for 6 months now and there's still a long road ahead to completion. Please feel free to follow this devlog or Neutronized to get the latest new about Asterism. Thanks!
