Overload - a re-imagining of Descent


Recommended Posts

Hi guys, I'm sure someof you remember the old 6-degrees-of-freedom shooter Descent. Some of the former devs are already working on a spiritual successor called Descent: Underground, while some others have started a Kickstarter campaign for their re-imagined version called "Overload".

You can find the Kickstarter here:

I hope the link works:

Now since videos and pictures only tell half of the story, the devs just released a playable teaser of the game.

The teaser is Windows only, but it's said to be working quite well under Wine, you you Linux guys might want to have a look.

The campaign desperately needs your support. In four days it will be over, and currently only half the sum has been collected. So if you loved the original Descent and are interested in its successor, please help and back it!

If I could get a digital copy of the game for (max) £10, that would be cool - but £25 is too much for a reskin of a game that I enjoyed when I was a teenager but doesn't quite hold the same appeal now as it did then...

 

 

teh_saccade, it's not 25 GBP but 25 USD, which translates into 17,62 GBP. Still not peanuts, but somewhat more afordable. Also, I played the teaser with mouse+keyboard and felt right back home. Also, you can see the 17 GBP as kind of an investment, because if the game gets kickstarted (against all odds, I might add), you'll get the classic mode:

Anyway, the game's been founded, although it was a close call in the end!
