Game Trailer

Cyrah’s Ascent is a 3D ranged action combat game that focuses on giving the player plenty of mobility options and ranged attacks to deal with several different enemies. While containing third-person shooter mechanics, it delivers these through the context of a magical energy rather than traditional ranged weaponry. Players also have access to some other abilities such as a self-heal, a double jump, and a dash. The main character, Cyrah, must utilize these abilities to overcome the chaotic creatures known as the Laust who have destroyed her village. By destroying the source of their power she hopes to restore balance to her world.
