      Thanks for the info guys. (re: alpha/beta start)

    6. Sean Jordan on April 10, 2015

      Whomever pledged a bunch of money and backed out to drop the total - just juvenile. Grow up.

      I'm watching eagerly to see this cross the finish line. It's going to be one of those last-minute winners!

    7. Jeremy Huntsman on April 10, 2015

      Someone just dropped their pledge tremendously?

    8. graylobo on April 10, 2015

      It is painful to see how close this is to both the deadline and the goal. Spread this thing around.

      Just upped my pledge for the a Descent Underground T Shirt. I really hope this is successful.

    12. Roger Garner on April 10, 2015

      This makes me happy. Almost happy enough to blow up a mine or two even :)

    13. Steve S. on April 10, 2015

      Just added $10 for the Digital Soundtrack, lets get this thing off the ground :)

      Just upped my pledge to $100: I Did It My Way plus the soundtrack/artbook combo. The reactor's blown, the exit door's in sight, let's punch the burners and get through!

    16. Wytchwood on April 10, 2015

      @Brent They said January 2016

    17. G'lek on April 10, 2015

      @Brent I believe alpha is mid/late fall of this year and beta would be spring of next year.

      @lotharbot: sweet! It's been so long honestly I forgot you could do multiplayer.

      I wish I could stay for the end of the campaign, but I have to get to work. Congrats to everybody in advance for a successful run. Great job!

    21. G'lek on April 10, 2015

      @Klaudijus Zekonis I know just what you mean. Descent was a key part of my introduction to gaming. Along with Myst and System Shock 2, it's the reason I'm a gamer today.

      That's why were here Klaudijus :D

      Klaudjius, I even talked myself up to upping my pledge by 25 bucks, so I hope I'm right, too. :D

    24. Alex Volkov on April 10, 2015

      I know ...I know but at the same time theres a little fanboy in me that wants this to succeed

      Sean Cregan on April 10, 2015

      I'm just waiting to see it get to 598k, and someone plunck down the remaining 2 grand at once. That would be awesome.

    26. G'lek on April 10, 2015

      @Klaudijus Zekonis Glad to hear it, though don't let anyone here pressure you into doing something you don't want to do. It's your money, after all.

    27. Joel Segerbäck on April 10, 2015

      It's certainly healthy to be skeptical. I have some worries about the goal of this project (though they've mostly cleared it up, the campaign page still lists a lot of aspects I can't say I'm behind), but I'm still really interested in seeing something happen with the Descent IP, and I feel the Material Defender pledge level is about the level I'm comfortable with here.

      @Sean Cregan you can still play D1/D2 multiplayer. Setup instructions: http://descentchampions.org/new_player.php

    29. Alex Volkov on April 10, 2015

      well f*ck it,uped my plege,lets just hope i won't turn out like before

      Less than 4800 to go!
      This is happening people! Can't wait! Got wingman copy for my dad, he loved this game too. Now we can play it on multiplayer. :)

    31. G'lek on April 10, 2015

      @Klaudijus Zekonis Yeah, I can understand that. I do agree with Adam, though. The guys who are forming this team are definitely not newcomers to the video game world. If anyone can pull this off, I would think it would be them.

    32. Daniel Isbell on April 10, 2015

      Upped my pledge $10 for the digital soundtrack.

    33. Monte Emerson on April 10, 2015

      is there anyone who's going to hit the reactor with a 5k mega-missile? :D

      I've never been burned on a KS pledge, knock wood. Have had some unexpected delays, but never a flame-out. If the team behind a project looks solid and has experience -- and this one definitely does -- that's 90 percent of the battle.

    35. Alex Volkov on April 10, 2015

      after droping a 1k for planetary annihilation....yeah...

    36. G'lek on April 10, 2015

      @Matt Stortz There's nothing wrong with that concern. I was part of the Towns disaster and I felt rather burned by the whole thing.

    37. LoE on April 10, 2015

      Finally took the plunge. Some of my very first multiplayer memories were from playing Descent in highschool over dial-up with friends (that and Diablo).

      decided to jump in :D its the closest kick starter Ive seen for a while

    39. Alex Volkov on April 10, 2015

      I would but i still want to support the game

    40. Matt Stortz on April 10, 2015

      Hey Klaudijus, how bout you just drop your pledge to 0. Then you can't complain the whole time about being "burned"

    41. Eric Pohner on April 10, 2015

      Almost there!!! 99% of the way to the finish :)

    42. Matt Stortz on April 10, 2015

      Add a few bucks on people! We're so close! And boo to the fools that have dropped their pledges, boo I say!

    43. Joel Segerbäck on April 10, 2015

      This Descent II track was always my favorite, hoping to hear more like it in this: https://www.youtube.com/watch…

    44. pclabtech on April 10, 2015

      So, if everyone chipped in 1 dollar, we would fund!

    45. Lanoitakude on April 10, 2015

      My first exposure to Descent was in middle school. The computer lab teacher would set up a LAN party every day at lunch for some of us kids. He'd destroy us with his mad skills. The world needs this game again!

      Everyone should be pumping this soundtrack out of their speakers right now :)

      https://www.youtube.com/watch…

      Get pumped! Now's the time to back and up your pledge if you're on the fence. The franchise will live on!

      Can this be played on a local LAN, or this an online game only?
