Ascendant is the unforgiving beat 'em up that challenges you with a new world each time you play. It utilizes a number of modern roguelike elements such as permadeath and procedurally generated environments. You are a demigod who invades a plane controlled by your rivals. They will stop at nothing to eliminate you. Only the most impressive warriors will triumph over their armies of zealots and beasts. By exploring the world, discovering new weapons, spells, and Blessings, and learning how to survive in this brutal realm, you may have a small chance at winning.
Hapa Games has released their first game, Ascendant, on Windows. Mac and Linux editions are slated to be released later this week.
The game was also recently Greenlit and is scheduled to release via Steam on May 13th.
To coincide with the launch, Hapa Games has also released a brand new trailer which you can check out below.

@Totalbiscuit You helped us more than anyone else, more than we could from our garage. There are devs that still believe in honest coverage.
