Another great week for Descent: Underground!

Posted by Descendent Studios (Creator)

Hey Descendents!  

It has been a FANTASTIC week for all of us!  

This week alone over 1200 more backers have joined our ranks. We've had some excellent press coverage, but more importantly, you've championed the cause -- and it shows, and WE LOVE IT!  

Please keep up the good work it is making a difference.

In addition to creating fantastic ship concepts and prototype levels, our art team has cooked up some cool new concept HUD UI. The picture up top is preliminary but gives you a feel for the direction the HUD is leaning. 

Come to the forums to check out the different color schemes and add your thoughts.

And in case you missed it this morning here is a nice fly through video of one of  the maps we are building.

And we would be nowhere without the support of all of you, we are humbled by everyone continuing to spread the word and helping us bring Descent back to where we can all enjoy it.

And more than that, you guys continue to inspire us, and make us laugh, here is an extended fan video made from some of our backers - I hope you enjoy.

Also, for a good platform experience,  check out the new game from Red Fly Studio, Mushroom Men: Truffle Trouble.

Thanks for a great week, keep spreading the word, and we can all make this happen.

All the best,

Eric "Wingman" Peterson

      @georgir - hey man they were Starlancers before that - lol....our game is somewhere between arcade and real but with style - a game that at it's soul has one word in mind on every decision - FUN - we will make it fun.

      Well, I gotta admit, I was surprised by these screens.

      Considering you're coming fresh off the Star Citizen bandwagon, I really did not expect the Elite: Dangerous screenshot at the top. Or the docking bay glowing door frames shown in the vid.

      Nah, don't worry, just messing with you. ;) You can copy whatever you want as long as it's great. I'm looking forward to it.
