What's the point of producing such a thing, especially on purpose? The intro seems to suggest it's hallucinatory, and Rybread games certainly are that, though they don't tend to trumpet the fact themselves. But it's not the terrible spelling that makes them hallucinatory. It's the imagery. Asendent can't compare to a real Rybread game when it comes to startling images, and its imitation seems pale indeed. The purpose of its imitation is a mystery. A tribute to Rybread Celsius. People are so odd.

Honestly, I expected more of Nate Cull, author of games such as the incredible Glowgrass and the polished Frobozz Magic Support and Nevermore.

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.
