Weekly Update

Hello Descenters!

 

We are bringing back the week in review blog, but calling it Weekly Update - because that is way more compelling, right, RIGHT?

 

Lots of fun stuff happening here at Descendent Studios - we just released a new version to the Proving Grounds, there are things in there to test that will scramble your mind!

 

 
Here are just a few of them:
  • Linux joystick support
  • Multiple joystick support
  • New game mode - Conquest
  • New "The Shaft" map by Jittress - everyone loves Jittress' new Shaft.
  • All 3 color enhancing features for KBs, mice, headsets, you name it...
    • Razer Chroma support
    • AlienWare AlienFX support
    • Logitch G
  • Rear View
  • IFF
  • "Bullet Hell" weapons balance
Just so much stuff in the Proving grounds for Underground members to test and give their feedback.

 

The Underground is a group of folks that want to help development out by testing all the newest stuff and helping us balance it before it gets out to the live product.

 

Also, single-player balance testing will ONLY be in the Proving Grounds until we leave Early Access... So, if you are a single-player person, you will want to be in The Underground in order to get in on the earliest stuff!

 

So, lots of stuff happening here in the Studio - which is spread out from Texas to Germany to Finland - some passionate folks working hard to make the game we all love the best it can be - I am proud to be working with them and you helping to bring Descent back from its 17 year hiatus.

 

This new generation of gamers has no idea what they have missed for all those year - but they will, they will.

 

Please be sure to like our Facebook page (and invite your friends!) and our Twitter. This is the best way to get news about Descent: Underground FIRST!

 

Enough talk, here is this week's Studio Snapshot:

 


See you in the mines!

How do we get access to 2523?  I am a KS backer and get the game through steam.  I would like to know as the steam version still doesn't recognize joysticks under GNU/Linux. Thank you.

The version in Proving Grounds is still not quite ready for Production. Pixley is adding some major improvements for control customization, which are almost done. Once those are in and tested, we expect to move those features to Production pretty quickly.
