Since i first posted here, i feel the game has greatly improved. Thanks for all the feedback you guys gave. Keep it comming! Now that the demo is being betatested, i felt it was time to update the first post, so it is up to pair with the rest of the game. It is at the top of the page for review.
Gravity Games is proud to announce that we will release the public demo on january 2nd 2011.There is a public betademo around since last week, but the real public demo will have no errors or anything. The demo contains the first 2 chapters of the game and has about 2 to 3 hours of gameplay. Please do mind that some systems in the demo are still in beta and therefore might not work 100% right.
Also, we are still uploading the OST on YouTube, this is the last entry:

We also know that there are some problems with the grammar in the game, but Zankoku No Yami has agreed to help us on this, so the full version should be free of grammar errors. Aside of this, please enjoy the demo
Please give your feedback, opinion etc ^^

You probaply forgot about this project and thought it was dead? Well, it isn't!
We are still working on this and we are advancing nicely. Chapter 3 has been done and we are working on chapter 4. We also made some nice improvements on the first two chapters.
We have to thank anyone who played the demo, because their feedback really helped a lot. Demo 1.4 is up, it has some improvements to it, but the same area's will look and feel different in the full game. I also ditched the fullscreen stuff because it sucks. For some people the video will hamper, but you can bypass the video by choosing not to play it at the start. of course i'll be sure to have a better solution for the full game.
Here you can download Demo V1.4:

Another point we have been concentrating on is to make the game more unique. Like using original sound effects only or changing adding to the rtp style.
Speaking about originality: Ascension still has an all original OST. (non-original songs you may hear are placeholders). D33JNES used to write the music for Ascension, but he found a job in the professional gaming industry as a composer! KayinOne is our new composer and this is her first song for our game:
Also, the trailer has been improved
We also still are working on more custom art. Fact is that all character art will have improved coloring and we are now creating more emotions for all characters + fullscreen images (backgrounds, multiple characters etc.)
I also made a (sloppy) video about some of the minigames. Don't mind the video itself, i wont use it for any real marketing lol. Anyway, have a look
And let's not forget about some screenshots (mostly chapter 3):
We have decided to take down the demo from the website and all forums. We feel that the current demo is not a good representation of the current status of Ascension anymore. We have learned a lot from the feedback and implemented these changes for the full release. Also, the full game will be released in about 6 months, so it’s better to wait for the full version to play anyway.
