About The Ascent

About this game

Developed by Neon Giant and published by Curve Games.

Take control of a worker that The Ascent Group, a corporate-run mega-metropolis, has enslaved, along with everyone else in your district. After a catastrophic event that sees the corporation shut down, your survival is threatened, and you must arm yourself and see if you can survive on your own.

You Belong to the Corporation; Can You Survive Without It?

The Ascent Group, a corporation that has enslaved everyone in your district, including you, has fallen after numerous catastrophic events that have brought it to turmoil. Now, alone and without the corporation, you'll have to prepare for the worst and arm yourself against the incoming threats. 

Take Up Arms With a Friend

Play The Ascent either alone or with a friend, as you'll be able to travel through the world of Veles and shoot down your enemies. Just because the corporation has fallen, doesn't mean you have to be alone in your journey!

Customise Your Character

Engage with RPG elements, as you can select what type of cyberwave will suit your playstyle best. Level up, get new skill points, use numerous augmentations, and slay your enemies creatively! Use the most potent weapons you can find scattered throughout the environment to bring down your foes, as you'll use explosive weapons to your advantage.

Cool gameplay, abilities, weapons, and environment but game bugs and crashes makes it really hard to play.

Awesome cyberpunk shooter. Lots of shooting, lots of looting, and lots of meat chunks.

The Ascent is a very cool dystopic, futuristic rpg, with a great soundtrack. The atmosphere and the music gives you a distinct Blade Runner feel. The story is interesting, and it runs great on linux.
