The focus of Ashen Rift is the relationship between the game’s main character — known as The Hero — and his dog as they travel through a trecherous, dying world.

For a decade, Earth has been at the mercy of a portal that’s raged with impunity and transformed the planet into an ashen wasteland. Monstrous entities known as Feeders have passed through this portal — a living, breathing rip in space and time known as the Rift — and roam the planet, devouring its inhabitants.

Playing as The Hero, you and your Pit Bull Terrier Bounder must reach the Rift — the epicenter of Earth’s unmaking — and try to save what’s left of your home.

Ashen Rift will be released on PS4, PC, Mac and Linux. A Kickstarter campaign with a base goal of $85,000 CAD will run until January 3, 2015. The game is also on Greenlight.

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal.
