Time for an update:
------------------------------------------
1:
So far the main point of complaints was the character art. After looking into this feedback i came to the conclusion that the character art indeed wasn't up to par. I started talking with some drawing artists and i decided to work together with Nekopia. He is pretty great in my opinion, but i want to have your feedback too. How much of an improvement is this art? is it good enough for a videogame/visual novel? etc.

(for now it's only a sketch):

VAST improvement. As an artist, myself, I greatly approve.

Yeah, it definitely looks a lot better than the first stuff you showed. No offense, but the first stuff just... didn't look good to me. At all.

No problem, the first art style really wasn't up to par in the end. Here is the colored version by the way:

Wow the new chara art looks great. Although to me he looks a bit sunburnt, but that might be my computer. Just wondering is this a time travelling game? because you've got a good mix of modern and medieval looking sprites. The platform gameplay sounds fun as well.

The first part of the story takes place in a world comparable with ours. At some point, however, the game continues in another, parallell world. But is it really? (epic cliffhanger :p). Anyway, the relation between these two worlds is important.

Some news about the original soundtrack. The talented Takahashi Kym is making custom music for Ascension. I pray on my knees every night because he is helping me, he's really that good :p

From now on i'll be posting a song from the OST about once a week on YouTube. Here is the first one: Fading Away. (You can also see the new character art for Luke and Sokin)

If you subscribe to the channel, you can hear all the songs soon! (*wink, wink, hint, hint*)

Also, the beta demo is being finished up. I'm deciding who will be in the betateam, writing a small guide for them and encrypting the game now. Invites will be sent next weekend.

Looks really nice! Will probably play it just for the music and art, :P, but the story sounds interesting too.
