Descent: Underground "Kickstarter" campaign launched.
After recently leaving Cloud Imperium Games, the company behind the most crowd-funded video game in history i.e the ‘Star Citizen’, Eric “Wingman” Peterson is back, with Descendent Studios, trying to bring back the “six-degrees-of-freedom” combat in the form of Descent: Underground.The original Descent game was launched 20 years ago and was available on PC when released. It had captured many hearts of the gamers at that time by offering action like never seen before.The game had gained an almost cult status due to its death-defying stunts that players could pull off while trying to survive in network battles.
Now Descent: Underground is being optimistic to bring back the game series with a 21st century upgrade utilizing the full power of today’s powerful graphics cards and CPUs.Billed as a PC game Descent: Underground, if funded will feature “multiple types of customizable ships, upgradeable weapons and sensors with richly-detailed tech trees, destructible voxel maps with new power-ups and mod tools to make your own maps and more!”
Despite having 29 days to go the campaign has already received a lot of support from over 2000 sponsors, who have pledged money towards the campaign raising close to $160,000 of the $600,000 funding goal.The title has also seen help from the “Kickstarter” itself with the game being made a Staff Pick.
