Descent Underground is Steaming ahead!

Descent Underground is Steaming ahead!

Hello Descenters!

 

It has been a very big day here for us at Descendent Studios and everyone that has backed this game to get to this point, it is time to open up the bus and get more people on board.

 

All of us were having so much fun playing that it made sense for us to take it to Steam. You guys worked hard to get the Greenlight and as such we felt it important to honor those efforts. When the community speaks, we listen.

 

Click here if you want to get it on Steam, or you can always get it on our site here.
So today at 10am Austin time, we hosted a live version of WingMan's Hangar and pushed that button. If you missed it, you can watch it here.

 

 

One of the fun parts about introducing all these new people to our game is teaching them the wonders of a true 6Dof experience, and our very own Dunkelza and Viewmaster put together a fun training video to help out.

 

 

Also, we wanted to show you guys a little game play and sort of hinted at the story that is coming up in our Single Player campaign - have a look at that video as well.

It has been a very busy week, and we have a lot more to show as we march forward in bringing Descent back to all of us who loved it, and those of us who are going to love it.
Welcome to the mines and thanks for your support.
Eric "Wingman" Peterson

For some reason with the new updates, none of the movement controls except for the pitch controls are working. I am using a keyboard and Logitech Extreme 3D Pro joystick.

That happened to me too.  You have to go into the controls and delete all of the old bindings, and map new ones for the stick.  You only have to do it once though, which is great.

Yes that happened to me as well, we renamed all the control setting and as such lost the old bindings on some controllers. It only takes a second to remap them, it should not happen again.

Tried it, still doesn't work. Only the pitch control, fire missile, and toggle hud buttons are working properly.

Gabinator, could you try deleting your Input.ini and trying again?  You can find it at C:\Users\[username]\AppData\Local\Descent\Saved\Config\WindowsNoEditor\.
