A personal thank you!
I wanted to drop you all a line and give a little personal note of thanks to our team and to all the backers for allowing us the opportunity to reboot a storied franchise like Descent.
When we set out to do the RTX show we had no idea how people would react. This was a show that would primarily have people that had never heard of Descent and though we love the game and game play, would they? Very nerve wracking, to be honest.
Well, I am here to say....HOLY COW !!!! We had over a thousand playing the game during those 3 days, many on the Oculus Rift, and many playing just the game on a monitor and PC. But, they all had one thing in common.
THEY LOVED IT !!!
I mean we could not believe the reactions, folks were lining up for hours to play, and people were coming back time and time again, one guy came back around 10 times and finally challenged the office champion Tyler Pixley and BEAT HIM!
This was so gratifying to the team, and validated that all of us are on the right path - and for that, I thank you.
Without your continued support, and helping us spread the word, this game might have continued to become a distant memory in older gamers like me, but thanks to all of you, there is an entirely new generation of gamers that are now experiencing Descent, and they are saying... HELL YES !!!
So, while we are not there yet, we are very encouraged by the direction we are in, and where we are today, and the best part is that Advisory Board will be getting it VERY SOON, and then the Undergrounders soon after that.
We can't wait to get this baby into your hands - oh man - this is fun. In fact here is an interview I did with Bad News Baron where we talk about the game - enjoy.
We are also featured in today's MMORPG.
Thanks - and see you all UNDERGROUND.
