After a long period of languishment, Ascension III has been formally cancelled.
A full explanation, along with some background and reflection, is in the devlog here. In short, I’ve lost interest in Ascension III, the Ascension series, and long projects in general, and after setting it aside for a while I have no plans to return to the project for the foreseeable future. Even though it’s been de facto abandoned for over a year now, making this announcement has been surprisingly emotional.
Ascension III may be over and done with, but I learned a lot from the project and pieces of it will carry on in my other projects. To everyone who was following this project, thank you for coming along on this journey with me.
