Thank you for this. I wasn't expecting to connect with this story as intimately as I did. I found myself torn between agonizing over being committing to being the Doctor and settling for being the Guide even if I knew that would be lying to myself. This game has plucked at some of the darkest and most isolating thoughts I've struggled to get anyone else to understand.
Seeing the most frustrated aspects of myself so clearly outlined, I stopped to make peace with the idea that I'd probably never be satisfied in some ways, only to give in and receive a happy ending anyways. I came way feeling like I'm precisely where I need to be, and that there is a life ahead of me where I can truly be alive and happy going all the way as a transfemme.
Words are kinda failing me now, but I have come away from Ascension at peace in the face of things I've long fought to just put into words. And I just don't think I'm likely to have found validation so specific and personal anywhere else. I can't thank you enough for this experience.
this game made me kill god and achieve enlightenment
10/10 would recommend
This is a fantastic game. The Doctor in particular resonated with me and really captured a lot of my feelings about my transition and where I am with it right now. It is also so good to see transmasculine and feminine non-binary representation in a game. And I also liked the nods to We Know The Devil, one of my favorite VNs.
Had me hooked from the very start!
This felt very cathartic. Thank you so much for creating such a wonderful experience.
Just finished seeing all the endings, I'm so happy I got around to playing this.
This is one of the best visual novels I have ever read and easily one of my all time favourites, I'm so impressed with how the story can effortlessly combine very unsettling horror with a deep emotional core. I love all three characters so much. Their designs are wonderfully expressive, all three of them are compelling and I enjoyed seeing how their relationships developed with each decision. The music also really adds to the atmosphere, it reminds me a bit of Pathologic's soundtrack and sucked me in from the moment the game began.
I loved every moment of Ascension and I have no doubt I'll be playing it again in the future, you've created something truly amazing.
a beautiful tale of false lives and rebirth
Glad to see the nods to We know the devil, I thought I felt its influence
Oh goodness, thank you so much! I wasn't expecting Let's Players so soon!!
This game turned out really well!
