Have a question?
Hi - While that is great news, the backers here need some sort of a real update. Remember, when we backed your project, expected delivery was March 2016. It's now the end of 2017, and I don't think that some sort of a real update is being at all unreasonable.
Thanks for keeping at it, it is really appreciated. Can't wait!
I just saw that now, that's pretty amazing for you guys and for sure for us!!!
@nitro - did you see the announcement today? We signed a deal with Little Orbit so we can deliver a full Single player campaign, and publish boxes, as well as be on both consoles.
Can we get an update?
Please and thank you.
Game is out on Early Access on Steam - you can play Single player vs bots, you can play co-op vs bots, you can play survival as SP or Co-op vs bots, you can play 10 maps with 9 different game types versus other players. See you in the mines.
So, the update telling us where you are, says that you're so far away you need to bring in "a lot more developers", and you'll tell us more "in the months to come".
Honestly, after six months of nothing, and over a year after your estimated date, to be told only that you need a lot more developers for months to come, is enough to make me think that all your words about delivering were just hot air.
I want a refund: I don't believe you're ever going to make this game.
New update - Telling folks where we are, and a lot more cool stuff on the way, including Single Player....should be fun....
When will Descent be working again on my MacBook Pro with Sierra 10.12.5? I posted a bug, but no response. I get "This version is incompatable with the current environment." error. I have tried rebooting and uninstalling and reinstalling Descent all without success.
Well I can say at least the developers followed through on this.
Another fun game needing help to get backed. Fort Triumph - Tactical RPG
Hardcore tactical turn-based gameplay.
Fully Interactive environments at your disposal.
Heroes evolving by learning new abilities from their class skilltree.
Non-linear, contextually generated missions and quests.
Strategic gameplay and world map exploration.
We are not going to guess, we are working on Single player, should not be too long.
Do you have a target for final release date? I tried a early version, but I think it was too early. I'm looking forward to when single player is fully complete. Any guess on timeline would be appreciated =)
@Joel - yes, if you hit us up on our website and you have not activated it yet on Steam or on our site then we will get you hooked up on GOG. Eventually we will be able to hook all versions up but we are waiting on GOG to implement that feature for us.
@Poz - thanks a ton - should be even better now.
Since it's out on GOG now, will backers get access to that version as well, whether through GOG Connect or a separate key?
Hey, was just playing with the rift. Huge improvement from a few months ago. Amazing work! EXTREMELY HAPPY I BACK YOU GUYS!
@Everyone - if you have not linked your Kickstarter account to our website, please do so now, all you have to do is find your backer number and then click the link on our website at Descentunderground.com and get the game....you can even link your steam account by selecting your account name on the forums and the drop down tab to game and do it there.....come in the mines, play some survival, or co-op vs bots, or perhaps multiplayer is your thing, the game is solid, fun, and growing....
@Chris McMahon - cockpit has been in and working for a month or so - as to weather you spew - well....can't say, we are more of a roller coaster than a cutesy Job simulator - so...that is all tolerance...and VR legs - but we have thousands playing with VR without spewing so.....
Have they fixed the missing cockpit frame for VR or is this game stil a vomit comet?
Final 3 hours! Confirmed for Windows, Linux, Playstation 4, and Xbox One.
Three stretch goals already met.
Remaining stretch goals include: additional rooms and groves, full orchestral soundtrack, full map editor, original source code is open sourced, full mod support, full art book, additional death scenes, and V.R. support.
@Justin & @Kristy - it is in Steam Early Access you can play it now while we are still developing it. Find out more at our webpage: www.descentunderground.com
Has the game been released?
I thought this was coming with a Steam release, I haven't received a Steam key though... :?
Obviously we are all Descent fans here. Like Trent DeRoc said, Overload needs all the help it can get in order to get funded. There's enough room in our Descent loving lives for two spiritual successors of this beloved series. Please go pledge and try the teaser demo at https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/revivalprod/overload-the-ultimate-six-degree-of-freedom-shoote to get a sense of how amazingly "Descent" Overload really is!
If you guys are big fans of Descent, you are going to love Overload! Overload is a campaign-based spiritual successor to Descent made by the developers responsible for the ORIGINAL Descent. Check it out here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/revivalprod/overload-the-ultimate-six-degree-of-freedom-shoote
New build is out - lots of new features, Descent Underground is taking Descent into the 2000s for an all new generation of gamers to enjoy.
This comment has been removed by Kickstarter.
@Poz - you can play on the Rift right now - get in the mines.
@Soopy - we did that as a limited charity deal. Game is fine, new build today.
If anyone have gotten your HOTAS Warthog joystick and thruster to work? Mail me : email@example.com
Works fine in DK2, now I need good input
Yikes, Descent Underground is currently in a $1.89 bundle on indiegala. That doesn't bode well for the project...
Would be awesome to play this on the rift! How is that coming along?
I love the new build! Everything is looking great and feels smooth. Keep up the good work.
Nice..... still in early access and already discounted to $9.89. Oh well gotta learn these lessons the hard way I guess.
Hi, guys, I've been trying to get in touch with you via kickstarter for over a month. Sent a new message just now, so it ought to be near the top... ;)
From the forum:
Found it.. Thanks..
I'm at the 30$ beta level. How do I get my Steam key?
Also I should get 2 Steam keys as I backed at that level. So 1 key I can give to my son.
I noticed this is on Steam now? How do I get my Steam Key please?
To work this well and be so fun in this stage of development is impressive to say the least. When can I start using my Oculus DK2? And will I be able to use my TM Hotas Warthog?
Hi Matt, only players with alpha and/or pre-alpha access are able to play just now. However, given the speed of the devs, beta will be up soon ;)
I can't seem to get set up with my beta access who can I contact about this?
It will run pretty well on a medium spec machine, with say an Nvidia 560 card, and an I5 processor, but it is best to run it on Ultra with an I7, some good amount of Ram and a 780+ graphics card - but it should be fun regardless - and you can customize your settings.
Could you recommend system specs needed to run this game? I will probably need to upgrade my PC!
Ideally specs to run it "well" =)
Big week in review.
@Richard We were testing out some discount features - go here to see what the discussion was about and how it ended up.
Great discussion and the resolution with the community involved worked for everyone.
@Descendent Studios - That's not right, I paid $85 for my "I Did It My Way package" during the KS and now it's available post KS with 15% off and all the same benefits! Why did I back this project? I would like to be reimbursed 15% please. :-(
No worries - just put in No address - the survey is pretty generic.
I see there is a reward survey to complete some details to get our rewards. I backed the MATERIAL DEFENDER $35 tier, which was all digital goods, but your survey is asking for my home address, which I would rather not hand out.
Is there a chance you can change the survey requirements? Thanks.
