Default Savant: Ascent (by D-Pad Studio) [Universal]

From the TouchArcade front-page article:

Quote:
Imagine, if you will, a game that features (a) an elevator death ride, (b) dubstep, and (c) evil flying metal monsters. Wait, stop imagining! That game exists. Or, at least, it will later this month. D-Pad Studio's July 30th-bound Savant is an intense shooter that, apparently, puts you in the boots of a dude on an eternal elevator ride filled with all sorts of flying evil metal things. The goal it seems is pretty simple: shoot everything.

We've got a trailer for it just below, and as you'll undoubtedly note, it prominently features the best thing since Monster energy drinks: dubstep. Also, Savant looks like it takes quite a few artistic cues from Castlevania, huh?

Savant is hitting more than iOS, btw: it'll see a release across Android and PC, too. I imagine this video is from the PC version since there isn't a virtual button to be seen anywhere on the screen.

We'll keep our eyes out for this one as it gets closer to release.

Looks wicked, but is that the only place where he fights at? Kinda like Leaping Legend that he has 2 platforms he can move to and from, and the action happens while the elevators go up?

I'm guessing D-Pad Studios.

Yeah, been keeping an eye on it. Nothing yet, NZ or elsewhere.

Well, I managed to contact them on Twitter and they said there was no specific time it'd go up, but they're late because they announced they're going to be at PAX this year. I honestly don't know how that changes just flicking a switch on the App Store, but sure...

Savant Ascent Update:

Quote:
We're currently insane crunching on the game, and hope to make an announcement somewhere along the day ;-)
I'm crossing my fingers that this is in regard to the PC version, because if not and the iOS version hasn't been submitted yet, we're in for quite a wait.

EDIT: From their Facebook:

Quote:
Charging up for the last day of development on Savant, together with trying to keep calm after PAX 10 was announced. We still have a couple of fixes to do, but we're hoping to make an official announcement sometime today
Yeah, I think it's safe to say this isn't coming out today.
