Developer Fluffy Kitten has only 63 hours to reach $35,000 Australian dollars — or it’s Game Over for space MMO, Ascent: The Space Game.
Ascent was developed by James Hicks and Chris Mitchell, who invested more than $70,000 out of pocket to create the PVE MMO of their dreams. Ascent sports a mind-boggling 270 billion star systems—and it allows players to build and customize their own ships, colonize faraway worlds, compete with other players for currency and resources, mine asteroids, trade, and much more. Successful funding through Kickstarter will allow the devs to hire an artist full time to completely revamp the graphics, improve the user interface AND add cool new features such as smuggling, bounty hunting, assassination missions, and active NPCs that respond to text commands.
Unlike most Kickstarter projects, Ascent offers a trial version. It’s limited to 30 days but fully unlocked otherwise. You can even spot some of the new ship designs!

So please share this post and go to Kickstarter and help make Ascent: The Space Game a reality!
