Hello my name is MJ Trottier, the founder of Know Vision Studios and creator of the Ascend 2 Crux story.

Back in November of 2005 I was an avid mmo player and like many I owe my mmo experience and love to SWG but also my disappointment. At the time it was because of that disappointment Know Vision Studios was born and along with it Ascend 2 Crux began it's development.

I wanted to create a world that is player driven where you can not kill or die, where their is no loot and everything is player made a world that has a strong story and you can learn something.

A tall order I know.

That is where our name came from Know is from Knowledge to learn, Vision is from seeing the possibilities and Studio is for the group we are to make it reality.

It has taken a long time for all the parts to come together and thanks to Hero Engine we have started the assembly so stay tuned.

Hello my name is Byron Kruppa, I am the lead Level Designer for Know Vision Studios and the game Ascend 2 Crux.

Ever since I was little about 3-4 years old I have been a gamer, starting out with duck hunt and Mario on the original Nintendo. I started my real online gaming career with the game SWG it was a huge impact on me in the ways of online gaming is concerned.

Ever since I started gaming I have always wanted to create games that people would enjoy and because of MJ Trottier, Know Vision Studios, and of course the great Hero Engine I am getting that great opportunity to do what I before this year had only dreamed of so thats my little introduction.

Thank you to everyone that is making my dream come true.

Hello my name is Aaron Jones, I'm the lead Engineer for Know Vision Studios and the game Ascend 2 Crux.

I've been a gamer since I learned how to read so it's been quite a while. Started on the classic N64 and progressed from there. Though I do admit playing a few older generation consoles as well.

I've always been interested in creating games, which is why I initially choose Computer Science as my major with a focus in Software Engineering. I want to create out game in a way that will keep players interested way beyond it's release date. Not only that but a world in which a real online community is founded by not us but the players themselves. That is what we strive for down the line.

My goal for the time being is to get a solid group of programmers together to tackle some of the most challenging programming that we will be facing. So PM if your interested in joining the crew. All are welcomed! (Especially Linux and Unix Specialist! I can't be the only one XD)

Hey everyone, I'm Phil Trottier, KVS Project Manager for our current title A2C.

My history in gaming began young on the Genesis and progressed to PC gaming by twelve. I've played many MMOs varying from text based, sandbox, cookie cutter chinese and japanese game titles, as well as some of the big box names.

From this and most importantly, I've witnessed the successes and mistakes of many other developers. Giving me desire to make a game that people from all ages can enjoy just as I have. Only better.

Hello. My name is Ryan Bethurum and I am a Level Designer for Know Vision Studios and the game Ascend 2 Crux.

As far as I can remember back I have been playing video games, starting with the NES and progressed through many consoles as I am currently a PS3 owner as well as a PC gamer. It has always been a huge dream of mine to some day work on a game, and I am very thankful to have the opportunity to help create and develop Ascend 2 Crux for you, the player.
