      Did you actually have a typo on typo on your typo message you sent out? I think you meant typo but typed type.

      @Robin Edgar: Kickstarter's survey system is rather primitive. It only allows a project to send one single survey to all backers and this only one time. Thus they had to compromise with a survey form, that fits all backers.

      Hi, I just received an email asking for my personal information so you can ship me my reward. Considering my pledge (EARLY BIRD: MATERIAL DEFENDER) is purely digital content, I don't understand why this is being asked of me. Why do you want my home address?

    5. William O'Meallain

      @Geoffrey, actually SpaceOrb used a serial port, and there's an open-source project called "orbduino" that allows you to use it on a USB port. Do a Google on it. Oh, how invigorating it would be to use the SpaceOrb on new Descent...20 years on!!! :)

      Congrats! Will pick up some more bits later like the art book and soundtrack. Wasn't in the position to do it in time for the end.

      @Matt Legowski, @Eminus Sleepus

      Ah. Well I stand corrected then. Thanks! :)

    10. Steaphan Greene on

      Yay! You all had me worried there. Looking forward to 2016!

      ...and I really hope this one includes good Oculus Rift support. That would be amazing!

      Congratulations to the Descendent Studios team for the successful Kickstarter campaign!
      Remember, the pledging continuous on
      and there are still stretchgoals to be achieved:
      $625,000: Shaman (repair ship)
      $650,000: Torch (light combat ship) for every backer
      $675,000: Warlock (technical specialist ship)

    16. Diagnoosi on

      Nice! GJ everyone! :)

      Prepare for descent, well done guys you have some guts. Regards from 'blessu' in the UK.

    18. Reese Holland on

      CONGRATS! I was worried when I checked in a few days ago. I'm looking forward to getting in some old-fashioned 3D blasting!

      Just please PLEASE make controls and gameplay smoother than Strike Vector! :D

    19. Erik Grape ⊂ Orders aplenty on

      Congratulations! Wow, this was a close one.

      Logitech M570 + G13 at the ready! Gonna be like old times! :D Also, I don't think people were "trolling" at the end. Some people probably committed beyond where they were financially comfortable hoping to make this happen. :)

    21. Kyle Mulligan on

      Holy crap; This. Is. Awesome. So pumped to finally see Descent back in action!

      Oohhh.. yea..! Time to dust off my old Sidewinder Precision Pro. 2016

    23. Eminus Sleepus on

      @Ryan Allen that 16% is for the 625k goal

    24. Ro'an on

      ....I meant to also add that I would PWN all of you with that setup, except for the fact that I am quite possibly THE worst gamer....EVER, but I love Descent!!

      Matt Legowski on

      @Ryan Allen,

      No, that 16.57% is showing the progress to the next objective since hitting the last one - $4,143 of the $25,000 needed for the Shaman stretch goal.

    26. NecroNuke9

      Congratulations! Ecstatic that Descent made its goal. I hope that the Warlock, Shaman, and Torch will be in the game.

    27. Ro'an on

      Who needs "A" joystick, when you can have 2? ....and 2 mice, and programmable keys!

    28. Jito463 - WoOS, LofUT on

      You don't need a joystick port on your computer, just get a USB adapter for it.

    29. Daniel on

      @Creators Can you please provide an estimated timeline when alpha, beta, physical items, etc will be available?

      I think that number includes PayPal pledges outside KS @Ryan Allen.
      Could be wrong here but I think that's the case.

      What's your DU handle in Forums JVVH ? I'll see if I can get that 4 pack for you.
      It's not on the DS website store. Thanks for your efforts. ;-)

    32. Ryan Allen on

      The true number is revealed on the website.

      Total raised: $604,143 (16.57% of total goal)
      Total goal: $3,646,005

      3.6 MILLION is what they need to make DU.

      @William - I know where my SpaceOrb 360 is, but mine needs a joystick port, and it's been years since you could get a computer with one.

      Kevin W Werges on

      Huzzah! We made it! This was probably one of the closer ones I've seen on kickstarter.

    37. JVVH on

      I tried to add the "safety in numbers" pledge at 4:59 (I had to pull over from bad traffic), I hit the confirm button, and it seemed to do it, but it didn't go. I guess they are offering the same packages and stretch goals through the website pledges. If we want the Torch KS, keep spreading the word.

      @Volumetricsteve: the joystick of choice is the old MS Sidewinder 3D pro if you have one and a Grendel-designed USB converter, or the Logitech Extreme 3D Pro if not.

      Hey it's the descent team. They made their goal. :)

      That was fun. Now what to back?

      Congrats Wingman and everyone else at Descendent Studios. Go make a rocking game and remind us all of the power of Descent :)

      @Peter, I know. Any port to consoles will come from the loyalty of Descent fans and the success of the PC release sales. I just caught wind of this kickstarter project today, believe it or not, I dropped my little donation ASAP and the project made it. And I had my doubts at the start of my shift -- but it went from 539,000 to 600,000 in about nine hours! Believe!

    43. William O'Meallain

      You mean I get to dig my Space Orb 360 out of the dust bin??? :D

      @Stealmod Yeah I'd love to see Descent on XB1. The FAQ says they don't have any plans for a console version though :-/

      All this talk of joysticks and such... where are the console users here? XBox and PSN users, step forward and be counted, to give this team an idea how much money came from us. The Playstation version was fantastic, and this can easily translate to a 10+ button controller in the future. I know the PC version has to do well first for that to happen, and it more than likely will.
