Stone Blade launches 10-day Kickstarter campaign to bring Ascension Online to Android
by Leighton Owen 18/2/2013
Product: Ascension Online
Developer: Stone Blade Entertainment
Genre: Card/ board game
Back in 2010, Gary Games (now known as Stone Blade Entertainment) launched its first physical boardgame, Ascension, onto an unsuspecting world. The following year, Playdek converted this fast-paced deck-building game into an iOS app.
Since the launch of Ascension: Chronicle of the Godslayer, the duo has released three expansions for iOS - Return of the Fallen, Storm of Souls, and Immortal Heroes.
But since the iOS version launched, Stone Blade has been inundated with requests from gamers to port Ascension to Android. And guess what? It's taken notice.
But there's a catch. There's always a catch. Stone Blade is asking for $125,000 on crowd-funding site Kickstarter, and it needs it within ten days.
This isn't just a simple port. There will be all-new features such as online tournaments, a new campaign mode and - most importantly - making it free to download for all.
There are plenty of rewards for backing the project. For $10 you can get a Kickstarter-exclusive promo card, and all the expansions up to Immortal Heroes.
If you have some more cash to burn, for $50 you get all the other rewards plus an advance copy of the new expansion Rise of Vigil (estimated for release April 2013).
