Acheter Savant - Ascent

Minor update(v1.39.99.2)

11 mai

Ok, second part of our weekend bug eradication is live!

This version makes further fixes to shaders.

You can now set shaders to: advanced, basic or off. Basic shaders will do a simpler shading on things like enemies and Savant's powerups.

Advanced shaders will require more resources out of your graphics card but will perform some advanced color swapping on Savant's cape when it is powered up(if your graphics card does not support this, it won't change color at all).

I didn't get the chance to check out the possibility of adding Trading Cards, but will look into next weekend, as well as keep an eye out in the community for additional bug fixes/suggestions.

All the best

Minor update(v1.39.99.1)

10 mai

I'm back from sick leave, and I've been looking at the bug reports coming in, which I will try to sort out during weekends when we're off from development on Owlboy.

This fixes a couple of things:

+ Added keyboard layout support for AZERTY(commonly used in France/Belgium) and QZERTY(commonly used in Italy). You can find these settings in the options menu(press the cog in the lower left corner of the title screen.)

+ Hopefully I was able to make enough changes to the shader so that it compiles on more systems now. I will continue to work on the shader till it works properly.

Please don't hasitate to report bugs in the community, I'm reading through them once I'm free, and will hopefully be able to sort most of them out within a few weeks, working the weekends.

Mercredi je vous parlais de D-Pad Studio et d’Owlboy, dont la sortie est repoussée depuis des années. L’été dernier, au lieu de prendre des vacances, le studio norvégien s’est lancé dans la production d’un side-project : Savant – Ascent. Pour se changer les idées…

Les artistes de D-Pad Studio ayant déjà réalisé les visuels des albums de dubstep d’Aleksander Vinter (sous le pseudo de Savant), l’idée de créer un jeu pour promouvoir son dernier album est venue naturellement.

Un bon petit jeu qui vaut bien son prix. Amateurs de scoring, foncez, ce jeu est fait pour vous. Malgré sa très très faible durée de vie, le jeu se révèle très sympathique, de part son gameplay simple mais ultra efficace, mais aussi grâce à sa bande son. Les fans de Savant seront ravis d'écouter ses musiques pendant leur partie. Même si le jeu est simple à prendre en main, il est en revanche difficile de dépasser les 5 minutes dans le mode Endless. Les plus vaillants s'acharneront, pour obenir le dernier disque et les quelques succès à la clé, tandis que les autres passeront vite leur chemin. En attendant, cela reste un très bon jeu avec un excellent rapport qualité/prix. Je recommande.

After looking at some reviews, I expected Savant - Ascent to be a very short, competent shmup with a good soundtrack. After going on a five hour binge of playing the game, I can contest that it's not just a competent game, but rather great at what it does. The controls feel extremely responsive (I've used mouse & keyboard), the animations are well-excecuted, and there is no dull moment.

You start the game with only a rudimentary set of skills – and it's hard in the beginning (or at least was for me), however, you unlock extra abilities by progressing through the levels and game modes. You can probably beat the Story Mode in half an hour or so, but that's where the fun begins. Time Attack Mode is over quickly and good for a short game, while Endless Mode is where the real challenge lies – i.e. in defeating neverending ways of enemies, each wave stronger than the last.
The skills you unlock are tied in with six different music tracks you can change at will, all of which are great (and I'm not a huge fan of electronic music, in general).

It took me five hours to unlock all the different skills and get every achievement in the game – extremely good value, considering the price point of the game, I'd say. One thing to consider is, however, that this will be most enjoyable if you are into score attack games – beating the game once does not take very long, as I said. If you want to challenge yourself (and beat your friends' score, maybe?), though, this might be the ideal game for you.

Arcade super-fast platforming action style. Very cheap, and equally short. The music is nice also.
