Age of Ascent

Release Date: Coming Soon


The very fate of the human species relies on you. The year is 2176, and humanity has been forced to abandon Earth and rise into space to start a new civilization. Thanks to faster-than-light travel, humanity has a glimmer of hope remaining. We need your help to build our new home and protect it from those who would snuff out the light.

Age of Ascent is a new space co-op and combat game being developed by the award-winning veteran indie studio Illyard Games Ltd. With a strong PVP community and an engaging PVE environment, AoA is a multiplayer space combat and strategy game set in an ever-evolving galaxy. The game features direct-piloting solo and co-op missions and real-time PvE and PvP battles set in stunning space scenes.

My Responbilitys

After graduating from the University of Plymouth, I was fortunate to start working at Illyriad Games as a contracted Unity developer. My main areas of focus in the company included social media management, graphics design (involving the development of custom shaders and particle effects), refining the user experience, UI design, and building/refining the weapon systems for players. In November 2021, I had the opportunity to return to the University of Plymouth to showcase our latest build of Age of Ascent to students. During the event, I also had the chance to share my experiences graduating and securing a graduate opportunity.
