Community Activites

The Transcendence Community is very active and vibrant, providing members with numerous activities and events to enrich the Transcendence experience.

Community Events

IRC Day (Transcendence Q/A)

At least twice a year the Transcendence community gathers together on irc (Transcendence Chat) to discuss the past, present, and future of the game with George. While discussions occur every day on irc, IRC Days are unique as they have the following:

  • Question and Answer time with George
  • Discussions and Incites into the future of the game with George
  • Idea Table with Developers and Modders
  • General Discussion time

On a normal IRC day, the event will last several hours of event filled time and discussions, so plan ahead!

Permadeath Challenge

Many of the active members on the community play a shared version of Transcendence which is rotated between players as they attempt to advance through the game without dying (once). If you are interested contact RPC on irc or the forums.
