Steam search for space simulations. Went thru quite the list to select this one.

Glad I did.

:mrgreen: Consider forumbot's thread at http://forum.thespacegame.com/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=3310.

:arrow: Recruit new players by advertising Ascent's forum link in successful online platforms.

--- :idea: Word-of-mouth works best .. use Ascent's online forum to begin the conversation.

:arrow: Focus on maintaining human contact once the game's been purchased by a new player.

Was a while back but I'm pretty sure it was a news story on the Sydney morning Herald that peaked my interest and I tried it out, liked it, and stayed.

not totally shure, but i think it just happened to be among my steam suggestions right at the top.
I caught on because of the music beeing similar to Empyrion but then decided to give it a try, as there is no pvp.

Those who haven't voted yet, please do. This info is vital to help market the game further.

I was searching Steam for space games that did not require the reflexes of a bloody Ninja, I am after all 69 years old. :oops:
I also wanted something that would allow me to own and build a colony all my own.
EVE did not work for me, I am not interested in making enemies, I am a builder, not a destroyer. Mild PVE is ok for me, as it is me against machine, not real people. I very soon drift away from a game that is too difficult for me to progress, as I said, I am no lightning fingered Ninja. :roll:

Ascent has a great deal of what I was looking for, and is the only game I have been playing since last August.

JAM ..... please don't quit.

PS. sorry I posted late, but the game takes most of my attention.
PPS. Hope you all had a merry Christmas, and have a great New Year.

Sorry, above was quote from previous post by Dirk, and I am a complete failure at using the 'quote' option here LOL

I feel exactly the same way, Dirk! There are a couple of ways you may be able to help.
...Join the GoFundMe Campaign, posted in this forum, if you can help with some $$$ for advertising and to support Jam's efforts.
...Join in with the ingame chat, to welcome and help out new players. With more activity there we help to create a warmer, more
inviting atmosphere to help build the community.

Unfortunately money is tight and work is scarce for a Techie my age, plus the Rand==>Dollar rate is not nice. So the way I try to help is by building a number of colonies (I have 8 at the moment) hoping that the Stellar Credits I need to buy will help Jam.

I will eventually join in with the chat, when I feel that I know enough to help the new players. At the moment I lurk the Chat and learn from your posts and those of the other experienced players.
Thanks for replying to my post, and be assured that I will eventually become more visible as my confidence in the game improves. :D

Hi again Dirk :)

Totally understand the shortage of $$$ and you are absolutely correct in that buying more Stellar Credits is also helping.

I also understand the hesitancy to join in chat if you feel you are too new to be able to help, but even just saying 'hi' and
joining in giving Ram a hard time about his bad jokes, etc. adds to the warmth and sense of community here.

I don't mean to pressure you though...and we're glad to have you here! Did you know there are a whole bunch of us in your age
group? :D
