Four Days In - Keep Spreading the Word

Posted by Designopotamus , 14 March 2015 · 2,048 views

Four Days In - Keep Spreading the Word It has been a crazy four days!

Over 2700 people have backed our project already. We are humbled by the support, and thankful to all who have come on board. But we're not there yet! Keep spreading the word, so we can knock this out of the park and bring back Descent for a whole new generation of gamers (and a lot of long-time fans, too).

We have seen a bunch of Descent's most dedicated community members join up on our forums, and they're adding their voices to the excellent feedback that we're getting from you. Check out Connie's blog to see the latest MVP posts about the essence of Descent. We are ecstatic about the level of experience and passion that YOU are bringing to the community. Come to our forums and add your thoughts to the mix: feedback from the community is essential to making this project a reality.

We're already moving ahead based on feedback from the community. By popular demand, we added two new tiers to the Kickstarter campaign. The $25 Prepare for Descent package is a no-frills game package that's easy on the budget. The $85 I Did It My Way package gives players a chance to pick the ships that best suit their play preferences. If you've pledged, THANK YOU! If not, come join the party! With your support, we can make this game a reality. We're also asking for your feedback on one of the hottest topics at our forums: come vote in the poll on bringing back the predecessor to the Pryo.

Good news for getting the word out - Descendent Studios and Descent: Underground are all over the press. We've already had coverage in over 40 articles in 12 different countries! Check out our media page for links.

We've also started a new feature on our YouTube channel allowing you to meet the developers behind this project. Check out an interiew with yours truly on the first episode.



A big hearty THANK YOU to our friends over at ArtCraft Entertainment, led by Gordon Walton and J. Todd Coleman, who have recently launched their Kickstarter for Crowfall, a new type of Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game. They are shaking the MMO genre up with Crowfall, which focuses on voxel based destructible environments, creative building of empires with massive player factions, politics, and warfare. It’s not like any other MMO we’ve ever seen, and it is well worth your support. Check them out, and count us at Descendent Studios as backers.

And if you are around Austin this weekend, join Gordon and Eric as they take the stage to talk about crowd funding and gaming this Saturday - admission is free, so come on by and say hello.

Geek Stage details for Gordon and Eric.

And in the spirit of community support and Indie gaming, one of our very own Deathwish is looking to get a game he is inolved with greenlit on Steam - if you are into supporting Indie games and we sure are, head over there and give them a thumbs up vote.

Steam link for upvote.

Thank you again for your support for this dream project. Please continue to spread the word: the more people who join, the more targets you'll have to blow away later.

Hello Rob. Hope You stay longer than you did at CIG! ;)

If Rob's pessmism is right and the game does not get funded, Wingman,Michael and Rob can still do videos.

It's very entertaining to watch them and one of the things I miss the most at CIGs ATV.
