A downloadable game for Windows

The Ascent is a prototype that is loosely inspired by the philosophical and religious concepts of afterlife and reincarnation. In an ideal version of this you would actually have threats to worry about other than dying naturally. There would be many many more lifeforms to become. The path to the end would be extremely nonlinear. 

Major goals of this project:

  • Experiment with different control schemes for each controllable entity. 
  • Tell the player as little as possible, allow them to find help if needed.
  • Allow mechanics to be interesting or experimental over being fun
