A downloadable game for Windows

Wake up in a cave buried deep beneath a floating island. Guided by a mysterious floating light, navigate through the underground and emerge onto the islands surface to learn more about where you are and why you’re there.

Traverse a floating island in this first-person narrative exploration game. The game takes about an hour to play, and is designed to be completed in a single sitting.


Ascent was made by students at Regent University as the culminating project of the three student project leads, but expanded into a class development project of 11 students. It was made entirely over the course of one semester, a 15-week period, and led to the creation of Sessho, Regent University’s game development group currently comprised of animation and cinema television students.
