Ascension is a text RPG adventure. It is semi-open-world and heavily story-based. The game features combat, dialogue, and a degree of exploration. Various skills can be levelled, items can be found, bought, and sold, and your character can be customized. Various characters can be interacted with and taken as companion. The choices you make directly and drastically affect the outcome of the game.
You play as an amnesiac who wakes up in the fantasy world of Rynn. You have no idea what this place is or why you're there. You have occasional flashbacks, but you remember another place entirely- a place called Earth. Skarval, the kingdom where you woke up, is being torn apart by war. Even more ominous, you seem to be the central figure in their Prophecy- the Starfall. And the Prophecy warns of dark days ahead...
This was originally made as a school project in late 2012. It was released publicly for PC in early 2013. This port is based on the latest PC version 1.4 which was released in May 2014. Improvements since the initial version include significant changes to the game text, new music, parser improvements and other engine fixes.
Though listed as compatible with all devices running at least Android 4.0.3 ICS, this app was designed for 7-inch tablets running running Android 4.4 KitKat. Originally, I did not recommend playing on a phone, but phones have increased in size and this game works well on large phones and phablets. As of version 1.42, the loading issues have been resolved.
