As Slow As Possible (György Dudas )

As Slow As Possible (ASLAP) was inspired by a composition ("ASLSP") of notorious American composer John Cage. The original tempo instruction for the performing musicians was: as slow as possible. This videogame is investigating what "as slow as possible" could mean in the context of a videogame. How slow can a game become? One aspect of ASLAP (the videogame) and of ASLSP (the composition) is the perception of time and of the human time scale that goes from birth to death.

ASLAP starts slow, you need to "phase yourself in." It starts slow and gets slower and slower. And slower. Ad infinitum. Each player should decide for her/himself, how slow "as slow as possible" is.

Astlan (Astrofra )

*** Astlan is a gravity game for PC, iOS & Android ***

The gameplay is all about controlling a ship versus the inertia and gravity. The challenge of flying your way through the levels was made exciting and fun thanks to an innovative approach of physics.

The fuel that powers the ship is limited, and the energy of the ship will go down on each collision. Dealing with the fuel consumption and the ship's life condition, the player must fly through 24 levels, avoid walls & traps, collect some special items and then land properly.

Artistically speaking, the visuals are not meant to be ultra-realistic. A simple cartoonish color scheme was developed.
The game itself happens in a 2D play-field, and the visuals are all handled in 3D, offering a depth experience that make it more compelling but does not overwhelm the gameplay.
