Ascension is Now Available for PC on Steam!


As of this morning, Ascension is officially available for PC on Steam! We'd like to thank you all for your support both throughout this Kickstarter and during the Steam beta process. Thanks to you, Ascension is now playable on iOS, Android, and PC - to say nothing of its original tabletop glory! 

We have been sending out keys for the release version to all backers at the Apprentice tier or higher since prior to the launch this morning. This is an ongoing process, but if you do not receive your key soon, please send an email to and we'll work to ensure you receive it as soon as possible. 

We're aiming to have Realms Unraveled available to play online very soon, and we are thrilled that our fans will be able to enjoy the new expansion on whatever platform they choose! 

The Steam PC Beta is Here!


We have been working with a new internal version of the Ascension PC Beta, and it's ready to get into your hands! Starting with the next build, access to the PC Beta on Steam will be available to backers at the appropriate reward tiers.

You will be receiving an email with a beta code at the email address provided for your Kickstarter account. You will need to input that code in the "Activate a Product on Steam" option under the "Games" drop down menu. 

We're looking forward to getting your feedback on the new PC client! We're very happy with the progress, and think you will be too. If you encounter bugs or other issues while using it, please send your feedback to 

We appreciate your support and your patience as we work to bring Ascension Online to this new platform, and work to bring all of the expansion you know and love to the digital world! 

Darkness Unleashed is Here + Digital Reward Delivery


Greetings backers! We have some more exciting news for you! Darkness Unleashed is now available on both Android and iOS devices, so you can get your transforming on in the palm of your hand! 

Additionally, Playdek has begun to integrate the appropriate flags on your accounts to deliver your digital rewards. Android users who responded to our survey should now have access to all of the appropriate expansion set. Currently, this is only set up for Android, but work is in progress to bring this to iOS as well as soon as possible. 

If you believe you have not received the correct rewards, please contact with your Kickstarter account email and the email you are using for your Playdek account. If you have not yet created a Playdek account, please indicate the email address you plan to use for your Playdek account. Without this information, we cannot deliver your rewards. 

As always, thank you for your support, and thank you for your patience getting to this point. We're thrilled to be able to get the latest Ascension sets into all of your virtual hands!

Greetings Ascension Fans,

We are currently preparing to release Ascension’s fifth expansion, Darkness Unleashed, to the iOS and Android store. In addition to providing this new expansion, we will start fulfilling some of the promised Kickstarter rewards that backers have been waiting for!

With this release, Kickstarter backers will receive the Storm of Souls, Return of the Fallen, Immortal Heroes, and Darkness Unleashed expansions, as well as the four Promo Packs on Android devices. 

We are also working on the PC development, and once that is complete backers will be able to receive access for both PC and iOS as promised with your Kickstarter pledge. We are building the cross-platform technology that will allow you to carry over your expansions, promo packs, and online games between all the devices you play on so you will be able to play Ascension on the go, at home, or anywhere and on any device you’d like to play.

For our faithful players, we understand that you have been requesting the ability to allow your purchases to carry over between iOS and Android devices and are working on providing this to you. At the time of the Android release we were not able to offer product transfers between platforms, however we are working on the ability to carry your purchases across all of the devices you play on. 

We will have more news for you over the next few months and we are also planning a little surprise to go with this for being such an amazing community. Without you behind us from the beginning we would not be where we are today and for that we thank you. We are grateful to have everyone as a part of our ever-growing community. Thank you for reading, and expect to see Darkness Unleashed hit the iOS and Android stores soon!  

Cheers, Playdek
