About this game
Content Rating: Teen
Ash of Gods is a mix between a roguelike role-playing visual novel and an online turn-based strategy game. This is a story intending to show all the complexity and ambiguity of moral choice. Good people often become rascals while inhumans behave more human-like than humans. This is the story of “angels” who after being given free will turned the life of humans into hell in the absence of a god. This is a novel that shows you that no conflict has a right or a wrong side because even your enemies have mothers and children.

If you have and are left wanting more, however, then consider giving Ash of Gods: Redemption a try. It lives in the shadow of The Banner Saga because it simply isn’t up to its standard, but it does have merits of its own. If you have an Xbox One X and sit a fair distance away from your TV to play though, definitely give it a wide berth until you know its text has been enlarged via a patch. Assuming one is ever delivered, that is.
From the number of different elements in battle, the amount of choices in paths and story, the maintenance of your party and making sure you keep a supply of Strixes for survival, Ash of Gods: Redemption is designed for those with a tactical mind. The story is well written and makes you try hard to keep your characters alive to survive the Reaping. But it is quite unforgiving and can be too difficult, which could be quite frustrating for some.
I wanted to love Ash of Gods: Redemption on Xbox One from the minute I laid hands on it, and I have to admit to being hooked by the beautiful and intriguing story. The game does however live in The Banner Saga’s shadow a fair bit, and even though it’s seen as a big influence I don’t think it’s done the game any favours as you can’t help but compare the two.
