The Ascension Of Vigil is a 3D Beat 'em Up fre ware stand alone game using the original Quake engine, it was originally based on Golden Axe at one point but then I decided to do my own modifications to the game play to make a bit more appealing to gamers of newer gaming generations. This game mixes a variety of game play elements such as platforming, minor role playing statistics, magic spells, equipment upgrades, relics, air combos and so on; it is currently updated often with new content. This is a work in progress and I hope to see it finished through till it's done, it also proves that 3D games are able to have as fast furious game play as 2D games if done so correctly. It can be summed up as a 3D Beat em up RPG platforming adventure fighting exploration game, yeah.
Since 2002 we have explored, played and enjoyed mods of all shapes and sizes just like The Ascension of Vigil. We love games like Quake that have opened themselves up to modding. Because of communities like Steam Workshop, Nexus, Curse, RTSL, GameBanana and Mod DB, more games support modding today than ever before.
Whether it is for fun, for laughs or for the challenge, modding is what sets PC gaming apart from our closed off friends in the console and mobile gaming worlds. And based on the recent outpouring of support for mods after the concept of paid modding was explored, we are not alone in our love for mods and open platforms that embrace them.
As mods play a bigger role in the future of gaming, we believe it is important to recognize the effort the teams behind the work put in, giving us countless hours of enjoyment while asking nothing in return. We have the power to change our games and that needs to be celebrated to ensure it remains a big part of PC gaming's future.
Nothing is more motivating than knowing something you've built kicks-ass. So this week if there is a mod you love on Mod DB (or anywhere else), make the effort to shout out to them, mention and link their mod in a tweet, blog, forum or facebook post with the hashtag #modlove2015 (or click the icons above for a pre-built post).
To thank those who participate in spreading the love and awareness, we have partnered up with many awesome mod-friendly games (Killing Floor 2, Mount & Blade Warband, Space Engineers, Insurgency, Chivalry: Medieval Warfare, Black Mesa, Contagion, Amnesia - get involved) & have hundreds of keys to giveaway. To win one of the games, after you have linked to a mod on Mod DB (or anywhere else) in a tweet, blog, forum or facebook post, let us know by leaving a comment with a link to your post. At the end of the week we shall be picking members at random who followed these rules, and will send them a key from one of these games.
