Ascension to the Throne is a turn-based strategy game with RPG elements. It was developed by the Russian video game company 1C Company and was released on January 26 2007 for Microsoft Windows.

Gameplay[edit]

Gameplay is divided into two aspects, either a free roaming environment where the player wanders around and interacts with various NPCs and hostile encounters, which are usually denoted by a circle around the enemy party radius, or a hex-based traditional turn-based strategy during battles. In battles, the player controls his entire party.

Plot[edit]

The player assumes the role of the last offspring of the ancient family Illiar, which has ruled the kingdom of Eden for ages. After the enemies of the dynasty attacked their castle, they slaughtered the prince's entire family and destroyed his settlement. Before they could kill him, a powerful spell threw the prince to a land far beyond his country, where he was left on his own without any relatives, friends, army or money. The prince has taken a vow of vengeance, to gain enough power and followers to return to his usurped lands and reclaim them - by force. [1]

Sequel[edit]

A sequel was released on August 29 2008, dubbed Ascension to the Throne: Valkyrie.[2]
