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.
Ascendant usually costs £6.99 on Steam, where it commands rave reviews, but you can now buy it for an incredibly cheap $0.25 minimum or $1 for a Steam code rather than DRM-free download. Naturally, though, you should pay what you think the game is worth and what you can afford. Usually I'm Johnny-on-the-spot with IndieGameStand deals, but Gooner beat me to this one!
