The tower binds together the worlds as it winds on a seemingly infinite path. Something seeks passage as a hidden hunger rises.
Three, separated from their own worlds, venture forth.

Fray, Wardo, and Chantel find themselves in an unfamiliar place. The tower beckons, reaching up into the heavens.

Ascent is a game made for the 3rd McBacon Jam. The theme is Inspiration. The main inspiration for this game comes from a certain RPG series that started on the gameboy, but it also contains inspirations from many other games we have loved over the years.

Original art and assets by Joseph Seraph.
Script management and tweaking by Zeigfried McBacon.
Mapping by unity.
Databasing, system and events by unity and Zeigfried McBacon

The game's demo is up and ready to be played! Please be aware that we've used a some placeholder graphics, so if something looks like RTP or looks incomplete, there's a good chance we know about it and just didn't get a chance to get it redone in time.

Aside from that, the whole "Base World" quest can be played, aside from the Tower. We'll probably be making a lot of changes to the game, as we were rushed near the end, but I think I speak for all of us when I say I am very proud to have gotten this far and gotten out a demo! :DDDDDD

RTP is required for this version, because of said placeholders ^^;;

Subbed! Can't wait to see how this turns out!
Does the tower at the center of the world lead to paradise, perhaps?

Gam Mak never dies XD
The reason for that is because reincarnation takes a while to get working properly.

My, oh my.
I can't find a single thing about this, which is not awesome. This is more promising than Zephyr's skies.

Also... 3 ascending a tower, separated from a distant home sounds like a very JosephSeraph thing. I am guessing the Game Boy inspiration is a certain rather legendary game.

ahem I did get the base idea down but the beauty of it is that the writing is done in such a way (and the game is being planned in such a way) that all us three (hopefully) have equal writing space. :D
there being three characters might be a very JS thing, but do note that the game's being made by a trio too! :D

So hopefully the goal is that the game has this perfectly balanced blend of zig, uni and JS. and, well, balanced in terms of proportion, but by no means homogeneous. c^:

anyway glad you guys like it xD
