oOo: Ascension is now available on Linux!

It took a lot longer than I'd hoped, but oOo: Ascension is now available for Linux +SteamOS!

Many, many thanks to the incredible Linux community for helping with the initial and inevitable teething problems, and a special thanks to Liam from for his detailed and invaluable assistance in getting everything up and running.

Enjoy the rage, Linux users!

oOo: Ascension v1.2 is now live!

It's been a long month since launch, and I've had some invaluable feedback from a number of players, and as such this patch sees some big changes to level designs and menu UI, as well as a large number of controllers now being supported.

Patch Notes v1.2:

- Changes to level design of over 40 levels, removing some of the 'frustration' points without affecting the overall challenging nature of the game

- Added InControl plugin support, allowing for a huge array of additional input controllers old and new, including PS4 and PS3 controller support

- Added the Sensitivity slider to pause menu. A number of players found the controls to be overly-sensitive, so we've added the option to set it between a value of 1 (very low sensitivity) and 10 (very highly sensitive). Obviously, we recommend 10 :)

- Changes to the music settings so that tracks change a more frequently and repeat less often

- Updated artwork and animation

- Performance optimisations

Happy flying!


(Note: Linux support was intended to be added in this patch, however there are still some minor issues so it will instead be added in v1.3.)

“One of the best and most unique puzzlers of our time, without a doubt a must play”
9.7/10 – GamerGuysAndGals

“A great puzzle game that focuses less on huge, high-budget components to distract the gamer, and more on clever gameplay design that is as entertaining as it is challenging”
8/10 – Digital Chumps

“Possibly the most interestingly simple yet still complex game I’ve seen in some time”
8/10 – XBLA Fans

About This Game

TIGA Finalist and BAFTA nominated Indie arcade/puzzler oOo: Ascension is now available on Steam!

Navigate your ship through short but ferociously difficult levels in the shortest time possible without touching any walls, spinning blades, lasers or countless other hazards that will try to destroy you in the process. oOo: Ascension revisits the ramping difficulty of old-school arcade games, whereby each challenge CAN be completed in a matter of seconds - however doing so ranges in difficulty from hard to straight-up rage-inducing.

The unique neon visuals and electronic soundtrack help to make oOo: Ascension an immersive experience that will have you saying "just one more shot..." for hours on end. Play in single player mode across 90 levels or race against a friend in local splitscreen mode - your progress carries across the two modes! You can also compare your times for each sector on the online leaderboards to see just how good (or bad) you really are.


- A lightning-paced test of reflexes and skill across 90 levels split into 9 Sectors, each with it's own unique challenges and visual style
- Local Co-op mode - race with (or against) a friend!
- Online leaderboards to see how you rank globally for each Sector
- Stunning neon visuals and immersive electronic soundtrack
- Ghosts allow you to see your fastest time for each level, or latest attempt if you haven't completed it yet
