Hello Descenters !
The long, long...loooooonnnnnnnggggg wait is about over. :)
As we promised last year, you will soon be getting your hands on the reimagined Descent!
Very soon, our friends at Little Orbit will announce a couple of releases - a PC Beta and a full Retail Release that includes console versions.
Anyone who got a copy of Descent: Underground during our Kickstarter or Early Access will have access to the PC Beta and receive the Retail Release. Because you believed in this project from the beginning, you will also be eligible for any PC pre-order rewards advertised by Little Orbit.
If you have not yet redeemed your Kickstarter rewards, it is very important that you do so in the next few weeks.
Here is the link to collect your rewards:
Your backer number is located in your Kickstarter account here
If you click the blue + (plus-sign) button to the right of Descent: Underground, your backer number will appear at the bottom of the pop-up window. We ask for your backer number to help make sure no one else can claim your rewards.
We are also getting ready to finalize our list of names for the game credits, so we need you to update your profile on our site by the end of the month.
At the bottom of your profile screen is a “Name for Credits” field to help us know how you want to be identified in the credits:
We began this project in open development with you, the gamers. We intend to complete it in open development, too.
Later this month, we will invite Alpha backers, then Beta backers, to a special Kickstarter testing window to help us further refine the game and make it shine. This will then lead into the PC Beta, which will be open to anyone who got the desktop version before the Retail Release.
These testing windows have important jobs to do. In each one, we will ask you to try out and give feedback on different aspects of the game, including the single-player campaign. Your feedback will inform our work to polish and refine the Descent experience ahead of our Retail Release.
We are conducting the Kickstarter testing sessions at DescendentStudios.com.
As we resume open development, you will also see more communications from us.
Make sure to follow us on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram to stay up to date on the latest Descent news!
Thank you for your support- we look forward to launching this new era of Descent together!
Thanks for your support, and PATIENCE!
Eric "Wingman" Peterson and the gang!
