AaaaaAAaaaAAAaaAAAAaAAAAA!!! for the Awesome leaps onto Steam

By Alice O'Connor, Nov 23, 2011 3:15pm PST

Dejobaan's free-falling "semi-sequel" AaaaaAAaaaAAAaaAAAAaAAAAA!!! for the Awesome has launched today on a Steam with a tidy discount. Awesome travels from the original's spires of Upper Boston to the Moon and beyond, with "shiny new graphics," faster speeds, new levels, and other lovely newness.

Awesome takes place six years after AaaaaAAaaaAAAaaAAAAaAAAAA!!! - A Reckless Disregard for Gravity, in an alternate 2017, when base jumping has been outlawed. The obvious form of protest, then, is to jump far above the Earth, through the stratosphere, over the moon, and across Ganymede, spraying graffiti and deploying obscene gestures as you rack up points.

As well as 42 new levels, Awesome has "remastered" the original's 82 levels in its shiny new graphics. Awesome ramps up the speed too, and its fastest levels have checkpoints so a little massive cranial trauma needn't ruin your whole jump.

Dejobaan isn't flying solo on Awesome, having recruited Owlchemy Labs as a wingman to help bring AaaaaAAaaaAAAaaAAAAaAAAAA!!! into the Unity engine. This move will also enable an iOS edition of Awesome, Touch Arcade reports, which will use tilt controls.

AaaaaAAaaaAAAaaAAAAaAAAAA!!! for the Awesome is available now on Steam for only $4.99, down from the regular price-to-be of $9.99.
