Descent: Underground on Kickstarter

(1/20) > >>

z64555:
BlackDove shared a link to the kickstarter on the #hard-light IRC, I thought a few people would be interested.

I'm stickying this topic temporarily to raise awareness. Ordinarily I wouldn't pull rank but this looks to be a fantastic project and is very much relevant to the origins of our own community too. Descent and FreeSpace have gone hand in hand, plus the developers involved in making this project really know their stuff. We owe this one our support. - Fineus

But uh... can they do this? I mean, Interplay isn't exactly known for allowing this sort of stuff

Scourge of Ages:
Didn't the last thing called "Descent" get pretty brutally stomped by the roving corpse of Interplay?

Just like... this... will... *researches so as to not stick foot in mouth*

This project looks like it's going to be a real, official Descent game...
EDIT: Or at least officially sanctioned Descent game.

Well I'll be. It's a legit thing
This makes me hilariously giddy

Deepstar:
It seems that Interplay allows such projects if they get some license fees. The same that Games Workshop does with its Warhammer franchise...

Actually i do not like this course... i hope there will be no developer that have the idea to make a new freespace title... but i fear something like this in a near future  :shaking:
