“It’s indeed a deduction game, but it’s a very unique beast.” – AI Space Puzzle

I am sucker for deduction games. I love Turing Machine. I love The Search for Planet X. I love Cryptid, ArcheOlogic and I cannot tell you how many times I’ve played Infiltraitors. Oh, yeah, I am sucker for a good deduction game.

AI Space Puzzle is nothing like that! It’s indeed a deduction game, but it’s a very unique beast.

I remember coming to our board game club, and Simon calling me to join him at the table because he has this new deduction game and he knows I am gonna love it.

We played. It was not a deduction game I expected, but boy, I enjoyed it! The code to crack, the whole deduction I had to make was the message presented to us by one of the players. He sent us a message, the rest of us tried to decode it.

During the game AI is actually creating a language and we, the rest of the players, are trying to understand what the AI is talking about and what these symbols and tokens mean!

Freakin’ brilliant.

I contacted the publisher. Secured English rights. Became a proud publisher of the game.

AI Space Puzzle is a game in which one player takes the role of AI that has a serious malfunction. AI tries to communicate with the rest of the players – Astronauts and tell them that the ship needs repair – but due to the malfunction, the communication is limited.

That’s where the fun begins. Depending on the scenario (40 unique scenarios!) AI has only a few weird tokens to create message. The rest of the players have only a few rounds to figure out the message and fix the ship.

It is not a deduction game I expected, but boy, I love the game.

We are bookworms. Movie maniacs. Story addicts. We grew up reading Tolkien, Howard, Herbert, Dick, Lem… We were watching Willow, Blade Runner, Never Ending Story, Robin Hood…

And yet, we don’t write books… we don’t make movies. We don’t make those things, because we make games. We make games that tell stories.
