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 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?

If you found this review helpful, please consider giving it a thumbs up. You can also find more reviews over at http://www.completingthebackloggroup.com/

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

Well. I have to admit that I have no idea about what I should talk about first. When I bought, for 2$, I never expected it to give me so many hours of fun. I thought it would be a 15 minutes game and that I'd never launch it again after finishing it. Looking at my time in game might inform you of how wrong I was.

Short version : If you're looking for a 2D shmup with an awesome OST, go for it.

Longer version : I was already a fan of Savant and his other works (as Vinter in Hollywood/Vegas, and his other band names) before knowing the game. When I discovered the game, I didn't think I'd appreciate it so much. First of all, the songs of the OST, which are Savant's work from different albums (Alchemist, Overkill, ISM, Vario, Orakel and Cult), fit perfectly in the nervous gameplay. The difficulty which increases along the levels is here, but it isn't too big, and it permits to have fun even after the twentieth try (gotta admit I ragequited a few times, but that's another story). And when you're finished with the five levels and if you love tryharding and competition, you'll love the Endless and Time Trial mode, which require some patience and skills (and ragequits) to master. Also, the characters from Savant's lore like Vario, the Samurai (spoiler : they are the bosses (spoiler: they're ♥♥♥♥ing hard at first)) and the Alchemist (the protagonist, who can be seen on Alchemist's album cover) aren't too much (I don't know how to say it, so I'll just assume you got the idea). The only thing that's bad for the game in my opinion are the bugs, but they're funnier than boring and the developer listens to the player and push updates from time to time.

tl;dr savant memes tryhard godlike ost GOTY (got it ?) game 10/10

it's a fun game even if it's short it's an intense experience ...

the visuals are great , nicely drawn sprites , the controls are good and the music fit the mood. very arcades like , simple but very much alive. the levels are designed pretty much like some of the older watch and games sort of gameplay in the sense that yes , the character can only move from two different spot as he jump on to another. there are specials attacks that can be unlocked by gathering music discs and the game become slitghtly easier once you got your hands on all of them , It's always fun to comeback and fire up a few rounds , try to better your endless mode scores or just replay the regulars story mode levels.

thru I wished they din't made the samurai such a cheap fight , he move so fast that the only way to avoid his attack is just memorizing what he is gonna do and try again and again untill you know everything that he his gonna do before he does it , he is kind of a stain in what would be a finely tuned game which is hard , unforgiving but fair challenge.

well I did said that the controls are good , with the keyboard and mouse of course but then they completly messed up the gamepad controls. I don't know why or 'what the hell they where thinking?' ... when played with a gamepad the controls are the like of an old arcade twin shooters which is fine but where it's hurt is that the same joystick which allow you to shoot your gun around also move the camera to it's maximum distance ... the camera become completly chaotics when you start shooting around with a gamepad , it's just become a unplayable mess.

overall I leave a 7/10 for this game , it's would be a 9/10 but a cheap ♥♥♥ endgame boss and messed up controllers support can't stay unpunished.

A short yet simple mechanically impressive game that features some of Savant's amazing tracks. Cheap too.
