Ascent allows you to construct your own space stations, and the team behind it has big plans!

For the past three months my team and I have developed a small fun video game in the blender game engine for an assignment.
The assignment brief theme was 'Imagining the Future', we had the idea that in the future all humans will eventually need to move from Earth and out to space.
So what we created was a small space station building game. You need to support enough people and food to evacuate Earth. The scenario in which Earth must be abandoned is randomly selected.
It's up to you how you want to balance your space station. Do you want incredible amounts of wealth? Save as many people as you possibly can? Or save a few people to last a very long time in the great unknown.
My team and I are extremely proud of what we have created in such a small development window. We hope you enjoy!
Here is our download link, windows only sorry. There are a lot of issues/bugs but hopefully you can overlook them ;) If you get stuck the 'home' key will quit the game.
My team and I discussed future endeavors now that this assignment is over. We are going to change it into a sandbox game where the player owns a company and must compete to monopolize space. We are going to have an entire universe where you connect planets digitally etc for profit and include a lot of micromanagement and random events.
