Update - GOTY Mode - v1.51.4

We spent the weekend trying to address a few of the bugs that has been reported in the Savant Steam Community, aswell as adding a little something extra!

GOTY mode has now been fixed up, and you can activate it by completing all of the achievements in the game. This will add a button on the Main Menu which let's you turn on GOTY mode.

When GOTY mode is turned on, enemies in the game will be replaced by goats-themed robots(and yes, we know it's a terrible pun).

We've added two new leaderboards for this occation, Vario GOTY(Time Attack) and Endless GOTY.

Other issues addressed in this patch is:
+ Fixed a crash when selecting CDs in the pause menu.
+ Fixed a crash that would occur when using chain attacks on enemy.
+ Fixed a couple of grammar errors.

We will continue to fix issues as they are reported, so please feel free to turn to the discussion community to report any faults.

Enjoy!

What we're up to!

This week we put Savant - Ascent up for a 50% sale here on Steam, and our artist Simon(who also draws Savant's album covers) made a new poster to commemorate this!

Full-res version here: Savant Poster on Imgur

Alot of people have been asking whether there will be more content updates for Savant - Ascent, and while it's tempting to continue adding new ideas to the game, we are currently working full-time on our other project, Owlboy.

We've only just got started making games, and we've got a ton of projects coming, so feel free to keep up with us through our official website DPadStudio!

We hope you enjoy playing our games as much as we enjoy working on them!

Savant - Ascent ist ein weiterer Beweis dafür, dass ein Spiel kein komplexes Gameplay, open world, wahnsinns Grafik oder tausende Fähigkeiten und Charaktere braucht um gut zu sein.
Die Steuerung ist knackig, der Grafikstil im Retrolook konsequent umgesetzt und das Spieltempo hoch. Es gibt kein Tutorial, es werden einem nicht ständig Dinge erklärt, auf die man auch selbst kommen kann und wenn man stirbt ist das Spiel vorbei. Dann muss man ab dem letzten Checkpoint neu beginnen. Für wen das alles positive Eigenschaften sind, für den stellt auch der stellenweise etwas herausfordernde Schwierigkeitsgrad kein Problem dar.
Das actionreiche Gamplay wird von Savants treibender elektronischer Musik untermalt. Beides ist stellenweise so perfekt aufeinander abgestimmt, dass ich mich an die Rayman-Musiklevel erinnert fühlte. Alles greift so gut ineinander und vereint sich zu einem Spiel, dass man ein extremes Flow-Gefühl elebt.
Hat man den vielleicht etwas kurzen Story Mode beendet, gibt es noch reichlich zu entdecken und die eine oder andere Überraschung.
Savant - Ascent ist einfach ein geniales Spiel und zu dem Preis so gut wie geschenkt.
Eine Absolute Empfehlung!

Savant - Ascent is a sort of twin stick shooter bullet hell type game. You are essentially rooted to two spots on each level, you can roll between them to avoid enemies, jump up and down, and that's it - although this sounds like it is restricting, you soon realize that it's all you need, and you probably don't need an extra thing to think about, so having just two positions is quite a good idea.

The art style is very nice. A lot of games are taking on this graphic style, and rightfully still as it does look good. The sprites of the main character and all the enemies look awesome too. Now, the music, if you are into electro/dubstep music, you may just have stumbled upon a gold mine. The sound track to Savant is amazing, there are about six different tracks to unlock and each of them is probably one of the best soundtracks you'll ever hear. I am surprised they haven't released the sound track as its own download to be honest!

Each of the levels is presented very well; the aim is to just kill everything on screen for a number of minutes, nothing too complex. The game does get increasingly difficult though, it will probably take you a few tries on each level before you get to grips with what you have to do. The last two stages probably had me raging more than any other game I've played. That brings me onto game length, the game is very short, I managed to finish the story in just about an hour, while this is short, there are two other game modes that will keep the replayability going. I can see some people have over 100 hours in this game purely from these modes bringing them back for more.

I would say Savant - Ascent has a place in most people's library, it's short and sweet and for £1, 59, you can't really go wrong can you?

This is a 2d Platform dash and shoot game.

This game is really genius !!
The music ... I love it, As long as you like the kind of music.
Controls are quite simple .... just shoot, jump and dash.
But secretly, this game is truly difficult in spite of the simplicity of the way the game is made.
Animations look amazing and think it's really a hidden gem.

You need to collect the 6 disc to get all of the powers.
The powers are needed to get to the final ending and clearing the game for 100%.
Getting all music discs is a really a great challenge.

If you think this game retail price is only for € 2,- that is crazy !!
It's haves a really high replay value for his money.
I really enjoyed this game for what it is.

This is a must have game !!
I give it a 10/10 because of the Difficulty, Replay Value, Beautiful Animation, Cheap Price and cool music.

I need no big comment on this. A game about a musical artist that ends up fighting a robotic samurai? 'Nuff said there.
