Clever Rachel Otterson & Game Of Thrones Ascent

Posted by Jim - May 27th, 2013

Well (I found my password)

This is the first time I reviewed a “Social” Game. (Like the bunny rabbit needs help planting his carrot patch or something like that, games on facebook etc.)

Hey hey hey! Game Of Thrones Ascent is not a 3D world you can run around in, explore, go eyebulb to eyebulb with a fairly realistic cartoon character and try to slice his (or her) head off with a sword that looks way too big for any mortal to wield-

But it is engaging. The graphics are knock down gorgeous (You don’t see naked people running around stabbing each other with swords or ‘swords’. You solve puzzles and face battles through pop up/drop down windows, make choices, face consequences, worry about your wounded loyal knights and agents and watch a fascinating story unfold on your computer screen, right there in front of your burning bloodshot eyes.

I think the number of registered users just went above 1,000,000 last night.

You can play it on facebook or Kongregate or go right to the developers website. (http://www.disruptorbeam.com) .

I did have a problem getting the ‘Friends’ needed for many of the quests while playing on the Disruptor Beam site but ‘clever’ Rachel Otterson went in and read forums and found a User-submitted ‘tutorial’ and then figured out how to actually make friends while playing on the developers’ site.

(( I needed google chrome to find a user ID as part of this, I followed her instructions and my poor friendless Hedge Knight turned ‘Noble’ was no longer friendless.))  🙂

I should have her write a ‘how to’ article about this process and then figure out where to put it.

Maybe I should put a page up here or somewhere with clever solutions to all the confusion I felt while playing this beautiful game.

Let’s see if I have enough left over energy to do that in the next couple days.

& hey— It works on a Mac.
