Very nice.  Very hard.  Enjoyable.  I feel like the controls could be improved somehow.  The whole thing felt kind of slippery.  Other than that though, an ultimately fine game.  Well done.


Man, this game is really difficult. I've been working on it for nearly an hour and I still can't beat it. I keep accidentally falling back to previous checkpoints, which puts me back substantially. I love the design and theme, but this is definitely not a game to play at night. It reminds of me of the suicide at my school last year - when I fall down, I get forced to jump into spikes. This is the most atmospheric game I have ever played. Period. Good job.


I... finally... finished it. With one life left. The game was too agonizing to try to beat it with two lives left. Alas, I will never know the alternative ending.


Thank you for making this game! I (Alex) enjoyed the game, although found it rather frustratingly challenging! My friends certainly were challenged with this game as well. We made a Let's Play on our channel and it just came out today! [Note: Alberto was EXTREMELY frustrated when playing the game, hahah.]

Hi! Thanks for playing our game! I'm glad that one of you enjoyed it!
I'm sorry your friend had so much trouble with our game, I guess, unlike you, he just wasn't skilled enough (judging from the video)!

Maybe he'll enjoy our new game, Coffin Counselling, more? It's certainly not as hard as ascend is!

Alberto actually has never been introduced to an indie game until this one, so that also plays a pretty big factor as to why he struggled so much and got so frustrated, hahah. The rest of us enjoyed it!

I saw you recently put up Coffin Counselling! I figured we would have Eumir (we have multiple gamers on our channel) play this one instead, as he is a bit more familiar with this style of games. I, myself, am excited to play it for sure! Keep up the awesome work! :)
