Buy: AaaaaAAaaaAAAaaAAAAaAAAAA!!! for the Awesome

Not the most imaginative blog title, I'll give you that, but I just couldn't think of a tagline that wouldn't be dwarfed by the immensity of Dejobaan Games' latest game title.

You see AaaaaAAaaaAAAaaAAAAaAAAAA!!!, despite being the scurge of journalists and amateur video game bloggers the world over, is actually something we need to be writing about right now. I covered the original game back in 2009 and found it be a perfect mix of high velocity freefalling and instant comedy death. This week Dejobaan have released an updated version of the first release with all new content and what appears to be some tweaking of the visuals.

If you've never experienced the delights of AaaaaAAaaaAAAaaAAAAaAAAAA!!!, the premise is straightforward but typically abstract. You jump, you fall, you flip the bird at the jeerers or give the cheerers a friendly thumbs up. After that, it's all about points panels, looking to tag them at insane speeds whilst trying to avoid every single piece of matter looking to pop your body out of existence.

As a concept it's solid, as an experience its a serious rush, leading you to believe in your own superhero powers of perception and avatar manipulation if you actually manage to reach the ground unscathed. It's also on Steam right now under the sale, which is exactly why I've decided to post about it. Just make sure you get in there before it ends on the 28th November.


AaaaaAAaaaAAAaaAAAAaAAAAA!!! for the Awesome is available to purchase on Steam, £6.99 standard price, £4.68 until the sale ends.
