Ascenders is a sci-fantasy, open-world action RPG featuring a decentralized, player-driven economy. Players can explore new dungeons and discover resources in the distant overworld — Ascension.
- Open Exploration: Ascenders has a rich open-world environment players can freely explore to discover new lands, hidden dungeons, and rare resources.
- Dungeon Clearing: The dungeons that infest the land are filled with enemies, and need clearing out before it is safe enough for the community to begin construction. Combat will put players to the test in return for rich rewards — perhaps even land.
- City-Building: Buildings can be built on owned lands. Silos and refineries improve productivity, Armorsmiths and stables enable players to craft new items, hospitals and shops provide services, Guildhalls create community. There are a very wide variety of structures to choose from, but limited space to build. Players must observe the market, and choose what to build wisely.
- Decentralized Economy: Players have full control over oversupply and demand. Players find and trade resources from around the overworld, used by players to craft new items. All items are player minted and player distributed, with player-designed specializations.
