God they sure are pushing that subscription pretty hard.
The Great War ended 30 years ago.
Our elders tell stories of a glorious civilization; of people with myths of humanity everlasting, who hurled themselves into the void of space with no fear.

Dan Wentz will be creating the music for Descent Underground!

Kickstarter update #38,
My name is Dan Wentz, and I am going to be creating some cool music and audio for Descent Underground.

Some of you old school folks might remember me as I worked on the original Descent series back in the 90s. I did level design, modeling, sound design and MIDI music for Descent 2.

I’ve been into games and music for as long as I can remember. I’m a fan of all kinds of game types, but have always gone back to first person shooters as my favorite. I mostly enjoy gaming experiences that allow balance, freedom and control.

The Parallax offices were split between Champaign, IL and Ann Arbor, MI, and as we continued to develop some add-ons collectively (Infinite Abyss,Vertigo, ports to other platforms) this difference in locations eventually led to the studios breaking off into two companies, Outrage and Volition. The last Descent game I had worked on around that time was Descent Maximum, essentially Descent 2 for the Playstation 2.

On Descent Underground I will be working on sound design and music, basically anything audio related I will be taking part in its conception, design, delivery and execution. The first leg of work will be concentrating on a short term milestone delivering 5+ minutes of music and a sizable amount of sound assets for the vertical slice.

I am extremely excited for the opportunity to work on such a great title again and with a new talented team of developers! This game is one of my all-time favorites and I cannot wait to see it continue to grow. Here is a small piece of music that is a work in progress that I am working on for Descent Underground, let me know what you think, I hope you like it.

 Thank you all for making this journey possible and thanks to the team for bringing me on board. 

See you in the mines.

I dared not hope that they would succeed in getting Dan Wentz working on this.  This is a dream.  The WIP track is freaking perfect.
In my world of sleepers, everything will be erased.
I'll be your religion, your only endless ideal.
Slowly we crawl in the dark.
Swallowed by the seductive night.

Re: Descent: Underground on Kickstarter
Id rather see a Descent 4 than Underground. But I do admire the series, so I am glad they are making a new game. This will increase fanbase if done right and hopefully will lead to a Descent 4 in the future.

I just found out about this today when i found it on steam for 30$ as a early access game.

Wish granted (Yes, it's fully funded.  Steam pre-alpha playable teaser is here)

Re: Descent: Underground on Kickstarter
Its not Descent 4 tho. You don't think they will eventually make a official one?

I did enjoy Overloads demo and will buy it when released.

Might also want to check out Sol Contingency (They were developing a Descent title before they got C&D'ed by Interplay; so they just stripped out all the Descent universe stuff)

It's Descent 4 in all respects but ownership of the IP, and it's not like Descent had a rich canon of storytelling that's been lost.
The good Christian should beware of mathematicians, and all those who make empty prophecies. The danger already exists that the mathematicians have made a covenant with the devil to darken the spirit and to confine man in the bonds of Hell.

Re: Descent: Underground on Kickstarter
Well, Descent: Underground does promise a singleplayer campaign at some point. Despite the odd naming (it seems that numbering sequels has gone out of fashion recently), I think it'll be basically Descent 4. D3's storyline wrapped up pretty nicely (same goes for the Mercenary expansion), though, so they'll be starting a new story anyway.

 
Re: Descent: Underground on Kickstarter
Except Underground is NOT a sequel. It's a prequel.
