Ascent is a PVE Space MMO with 270,000,000,000 star systems.

In a future where civilisation has almost completely collapsed, players must work together to prevent total disaster, and rebuild a new civilisation of their own choosing.

So far, completed features include:

  • Combat (fighter style dogfighting, and big ship broadside duels)
  • Trading
  • Mission system (combat, transport, passengers, courier, supply, demand)
  • Asteroid mining
  • Farming and mining on planet surfaces
  • Personal starbase construction
  • Research
  • Manufacturing (you can build and customise your ships, including custom color schemes)
  • Interaction with other players (you can see their ships in space, trade with them on the global market, and galaxy-wide chat is enabled)
  • Gas giant harvesting. (because sometimes you need things like hydrogen and oxygen!)
  • Exploration and Colonization in a galaxy of 270 billion star systems

We release a new major version roughly once every month.

In the beginning the game is crazily simple / easy to get into, especially if you choose the industrialist rather than combat-oriented starting position. However, the level of difficulty and complexity steadily ramp up and up, along with the rewards. See our design & vision statements on the website for further details.

Currently the game is playable on Windows and Mac using the Unity3d web client, directly through our website ( and a PC client is available through Desura[], and hopefully soon Steam as well.

Checkout for another distribution source if you are willing to release it without DRM.

The sheer scale of this game is amazing, and it has one of the friendliest communities I've played with to date.
