The Ascent Theme
The Ascent is a solo and co-op Action-shooter RPG set in a cyberpunk world. The mega corporation that owns you and everyone, The Ascent Group, has just collapsed.
The Ascent is presented from a top-down view overlooking the character(s). It is a twin-stick shooter. It includes the ability to aim both high and low on enemy targets, allowing the player to differentiate between shooting enemies closer or further away. This mechanic is key to the game's cover system, allowing the player to aim at enemies over the top of the props in the environment. The player can fully customise their character's appearance, and can augment their character with cyberware upgrades to get new skills and abilities. Players also have an upgradeable cyberdeck device, which they can use to gain access or "hack" into previously locked areas and loot certain chests.
