License Test Demo Release!

License Test Demo Release!

After a very long, arduous road, we're proud to announce our first public release of the ASH project: The License Test!

Announcing our first public demo!

We know it's been a while and this may not seem like much, but the project went on a long hiatus  and we've only recently brought things back up to speed.  Compared to our videos from nearly a decade ago, ASH runs on a new Vulkan powered custom engine.

Download it here and enjoy! Can you get the legendary SSS License Rating?

Minimum Requirements:

  • Windows 7 64-bit or newer or Wine for support on Linux
  • Vulkan-Capable Graphics Card
  • x86-64 Processor
  • At least 1 GB of Free Hard Disk Space
  • 2 GB of RAM
  • Microsoft Visual Studio 2013 x86 Runtime. Most computers will have this already from other software.

The game executable is in bin/release/ASH.exe.

While the game is not very demanding overall, due to the engine still being in development there are a few bottlenecks. Notably, if an enemy ragdoll physics can cause extreme slowdown when knocked into tight spaces. The smoke rendering is a source of GPU slowdown and gets much worse at higher resolutions. The more powerful your computer, the less likely these are to cause issues.

These issues will be resolved in later releases as things are optimized.

Special thanks to anyone and everyone that has stuck with the project throughout these years.  We hope you enjoy this small slice of the game we're making.
