2 of 2 people found the following review helpful:Poorly done parody of Rybread Celsius, February 15, 2016
by MathBrushHonestly, I expected more of Nate Cull, author of games such as the incredible Glowgrass and the polished Frobozz Magic Support and Nevermore.
This game is a poor imitation of Rybread Celsius. Rybread was known as one of the worst IF authors of the late 90s. He had frequent typos, and often withheld critical information from players, and had bizarre, humorous writing.
This parody is essentially limited to the bad spelling and the Adventure references. I felt that the author's could have done much better here.

Asendent (the title is presumably deliberately misspelled) attempts to evoke the spirit of Rybread Celsius, though it's hard to tell whether the game is supposed to be an homage or a parody. Full of misspellings and grammar errors (again, presumably deliberate), nothing makes much sense, and the only saving grace is that it doesn't last very long. Even if you like this sort of thing, you'll probably prefer the originals, which, if nothing else, have a sort of warped sincerity; Asendent is just a misconceived attempt at humor.
