Have a question?
I think they were upping their pledge. Kick Starter detracts the funds while processing an update and then re-adds the new amount.
Ladies and Gentlemen, we have a $5000 troll among us! Heart exploding.... Strokes imminent.
what the hell? who droped out and by how mutch?
Someone pulled out a large sum of cash and now it's back up again?
Someone's f*cking around.
It hasn't dropped
Thanks for the info guys. (re: alpha/beta start)
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!
Someone just dropped their pledge tremendously?
9,000 left and 3 hours if this dont make it i will be beside myself with greef and rage.
Congrats guys, looking forward to seeing this really come to life!
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.
This makes me happy. Almost happy enough to blow up a mine or two even :)
Just added $10 for the Digital Soundtrack, lets get this thing off the ground :)
wow this is close xD
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!
@Brent They said January 2016
@Brent I believe alpha is mid/late fall of this year and beta would be spring of next year.
Anyone know when beta is supposed to start?
@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!
@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
I know ...I know but at the same time theres a little fanboy in me that wants this to succeed
I'm just waiting to see it get to 598k, and someone plunck down the remaining 2 grand at once. That would be awesome.
@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.
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
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. :)
@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.
Upped my pledge $10 for the digital soundtrack.
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.
after droping a 1k for planetary annihilation....yeah...
@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.
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
I would but i still want to support the game
Hey Klaudijus, how bout you just drop your pledge to 0. Then you can't complain the whole time about being "burned"
Almost there!!! 99% of the way to the finish :)
Add a few bucks on people! We're so close! And boo to the fools that have dropped their pledges, boo I say!
This Descent II track was always my favorite, hoping to hear more like it in this: https://www.youtube.com/watch…
So, if everyone chipped in 1 dollar, we would fund!
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!
Just upped my Pledge for a Descendent Studios T-shirt.
Everyone should be pumping this soundtrack out of their speakers right now :)
Get pumped! Now's the time to back and up your pledge if you're on the fence. The franchise will live on!
