A THUG'S ASCENSION
A dark, grounded crime drama, coming early 2023 for Windows and macOS
Money creates divide. Power creates divide. Ideologies create divide. A Thug's Ascension is the story of divide, and the chaos and death around it. It's the story of two people on opposite sides of this divide, of their rage that they hook on to like a hard drug, of their fractured concepts of justice and injustice, and of the fears and trauma that they carry deep inside their hearts. These are the two sides of a war for the nation's greatest city. There will be no winners, but for those who survive, they're Maratha's final hope of saving itself from fading off the map forever.
WELCOME TO THE STORY
Step into the dying city of Maratha as mercenary underboss Chief, and join his gang of outlaws in the war for the great bridge against the power brokers trying to reshape the neighbourhood in their own image. This is a dark, grounded, character-driven crime drama chronicling the events of industrialist Dr. Sarkar's reconstruction attempts of the nation's greatest city; exploring the dreams, chaos and mental turmoil created around two broken men with clashing ideologies, brought up on the opposite sides of the Bondor-Warli Sea Link. It's the story of what it means for them to find the human inside them once again, rediscover who they once were.
A Thug's Ascension is a narrative-driven low-poly action-adventure game set in Maratha City, circa 2022. In this epic, four-hour-long campaign combining dark, sick-washed, breathtaking cinematography with intense first-person shooter gameplay, you explore the appalling setting and the slow-paced, sophisticated plot delivered through a 50,000-word-long screenplay penned by writer-director Adi Chandra.
CLOSED BETA OUT NOW
The game is currently in active development, and the A Thug's Ascension beta was released to a closed team of external playtesters on 5th March, 2021.
