Hello Descenters!!!!

Thank you all so much, the journey and wait is about over.

We have been a bit quiet, but it is time for that to end, and for the countdown to begin. Thanks to Little Orbit joining us in this endeavor we have been able to make the game bigger and better than we'd ever hoped.  

A full story based single player campaign with progression, tech trees, unlocks, and all your favorite 6 Dof, bot smashing, core crushing, tri-chording fun.  Not to mention mulitplayer, co-op, survival, upgrades, ship customization, and tons of replayability.

Soon you will be able to play Descent on XBox1, Playstation 4, PC, Mac, and Linux, look for an announcement on that date from our partners at Little Orbit in the near future.

It has been a labor of love for the development team, and for that we are grateful to you guys for trusting us to bring Descent back, we hope you like it. 

Final elements we are working on:

Single player being balanced, Localization is going in for EFIGS, All voice acting recorded and in the game with some actors you just might recognize. 

We are in the home stretch - on this amazing journey - can't wait to get it into your hands.  

See you in the mines, and....

      Re: choosing a platform - we are looking into that, in the original Kickstarter it was for PC, Mac and Linux, and with Little Orbit we added Consoles, so in truth, not sure right now, but we are looking at how we might be able to do it.

      Seriously looking forward to the single-player campaign in this. To echo previous comments: will we be able to choose our platform when this is launched? I'd love to see this on my PS4...

      AWESOME!! Can't wait!
      Will we be able to download Descent on the console of our choice if we backed the game? (PS4 for me)

      Yay! Been so interested in the single player campaign since this was kickstarted. Can't wait to play it... I dislike multiplayer games usually, so this is exciting news. Keep on going!

      I'm glad that the shift went from trying to milk additional funds from the community through various "add ons" and "exclusive access clubs" like CIG to actually making the game people pledged for. Looking forward to its release!

      Wait, you mean you guys are still working on this? Early 2015 this game was started, I figured you took the money and ran by now.

      Well done team...., it seems like a life time since you let CIG/SC.., and probably longer for you guys.., but a HUUUUUGE "THANK YOU" for sticking it out when the going got tough.
      I will do my best to promote it for you.
