Can you make it through Ascendant, or will you die repeatedly?
Today Hapa Games released the final teaser trailer for their first project, Ascendant, which, for those unaware, is a “relentless side scrolling beat ’em up” that will be released on PC.
The teaser series, known as Divinity or Death, hints that you should go into the game fully prepared to die. The series hints that you will die quite frequently against the bosses in the game thanks to a variety of means.
The game challenges you with a brand new world every time you play and utilizes other modern roguelike elements including permadeath. For those wondering the story, you are a demigod who has invaded a plane controlled by your rivals. These rivals will stop at nothing to defeat you, but can you survive the onslaught of zealots and beasts?
What do you think of everything we’ve learned of the game so far? Do the roguelike elements make you more or less interested in this title?
