We’ve been a bit quiet the past few days, and here’s why: Laziness. Also Deus Ex 3, but that’s beside the point.
Anyways, I thought I’d give you all a bit of background on Acension’s story and character(s). We’ve been keeping pretty quiet so far, but I figure it’s only fair that you know SOMETHING about this game.
Ascension is a survival-horror game, as most of you already know. It’s set in a newly-constructed skyscraper called MN Tower…What? The building has a large number of floors, but most of them will be un-accessible in game for obvious reasons. You play as a solitary custodian, the name of whom no one cares enough to remember. One day during work you are called to fix a maintenance issue one one of the Office floors. While there, the lights go out and people begin to die. I won’t spoil what exactly happens; that’s something you’ll have to find out for yourself. All you need to know is that you, along with a handful of others, survive the initial mayhem. You wake up in the basement. Your primary objective is to escape the Tower… or is it.
I’m being vague, and you should also keep in mind that none of this is 100% concrete yet, so it’s subject to change. We’ll keep you all updated as we go, but don’t expect a full explanation of the plot this time around. We want to give you guys some incentive to play the game, right? ;D
That’s all for now! Check back later for some more drip-fed information.
