I figured a fair few of us have picked up Ashen after hearing it’s praises sung on Waypoint Radio and elsewhere, so lets have a thread where we can talk about how lovely it all is! Especially that beautiful facial hair physics. Lordy, if my 'tache were half as bouncy as my man Jokell…
I’ve been super enjoying my time with it so far, moreso after getting a controller working. Between the scenery and the music it’s been a lovely walkabout. I was worried the combat might be a bit Necropolis-y, so I’m super glad it feels as nice as it does. I had a proper geek out over how good the lantern both looks and works mechanically. I figured out you could put it down in the middle of combat and the cleverness of the mechanic had me destracted enough to get me killed. Here’s a tip: Early on, if something’s moving in a cave, don’t pick a fight with it, ESPECIALLY if it’s really obviously luring you deeper inside.
Even in the very early stages of the town I’m excited for how it’ll develop. I’m always a sucker for places getting rebuilt and populated and I’m getting some real good vibes off the place already.
So how’s everyone else finding it?
