ShackStream: Savant - Ascent REMIX lifts us through magical bullet hell on Indie-licious

Magic, music, and a wealth of foes await us as we climb the towers of the Alchemist on today's Indie-licious ShackStream!


D-Pad Studio (makers of Owlboy) have come back with a remix of one of its earlier games, sprucing it up and adding new content to make it into a shiny new game, Savant - Ascent REMIX. The remixed version just came out last week and we’re going to be playing today on the Indie-licious ShackStream.

Savant - Ascent REMIX comes to us from D-Pad Studio, which was the developer and publisher of the game. The game officially came out on PC on September 29, 2023, and is currently only available on PC at this time. In this world of magic, we join the mysterious Alchemist, who has discovered a strange orb. However, when the orb unleashes malicious energies, it blows the Alchemist right out of his own tower. He’s going to have to ride the tower’s elevators back to the top and beyond, using his magic to defeat the robotic foes that have taken over in a bullet-hell shooter with a riveting soundtrack by musical artist Savant.

Join us as we play Savant Ascent - REMIX on today’s episode of Indie-licious, going live on the Shacknews Twitch channel at 2:15 p.m. PT / 5:15 p.m. ET. You can also watch just below.
