Do any of you remember playing Descent back in the 90s? It was one of my first games when I was little and has been one of my favorites ever since. There's never been anything quite like it in terms of player movement, it pioneered 6 Degrees of Freedom for gaming which allowed the player to pilot their ship in any direction (including vertically) at will. This led to a unique style of game which has been imitated but never matched, until now http://preparefordescent.com/ For the last three years a small team of dedicated fans has been working to create a spiritual successor, that aims to recapture the magic of Descent in the Unreal 3 engine. This new project, titled Sol Contingency, is about to release its initial closed Beta today, soon to be followed by an open beta and full release later this month. The current iteration is a fully functional multiplayer game that will be released for free in order to promote an upcoming Kickstarter campaign with the aim to create a larger singleplayer game and expanded multiplayer in Unreal 4. Just thought I'd share something that makes me feel as excited for gaming as I did when I was 7!
