Descent: Underground - Winter update

blog-0820253001481329938.png

Hello Descenters!

 


We just released a major update to Descent: Underground, with lots of goodies for you to enjoy. Things like Radar, auto-leveling, new cockpit and hud, and so much more - you can read all about it here.

 


Also, all of our ships now sport Ugly Sweaters for the holiday season, go to the forums and vote for the ugliest sweater, in addition, we have angry snowmen megas, ornamental prox mines, snow filled energy zones - well it is a veritable plethora of holiday spirit - but don't forget to shoot first and ask questions later.

 


Also, we need your help, some of the feedback we have been getting was about shield orb farming, and how after a kill the victor would run around filling up their shield indicator and forcing the new players to have a major task of killing them (because they would have all the goodies) so, as a test we removed the shield orb power ups in ONE map, Valor, and we want you to test it out and tell us what you think.

 


Currently our office is focused on Single-Player and the story, there will be a lot more of that coming up in the near future as we set the tone for the Universe - should be fun, more bots to fight, some evil corporations, and what? There are actually groups who think that people should be IN the cockpit, you don't say....!!!!!

 


A reminder that we will be closed the week after Christmas - but will still be in the game playing - so come join us and let's have some fun, shooting those hideous sweater clad ships.

 


We will also be launching on GOG this month and will be at 50% off on Steam and our website - a good time to pick up a copy and get your friends into the game - (yes yes, that is my marketing moment).

 


If you missed this week's Wingman's Hangar here it is in all of it's ....uh.....well....glory.

 


 


Also, every Friday after the show we play with everyone else and get your feedback - check out this week's Dev play here:

 


 


Thanks everyone for joining us on this adventure, help us spread the word, and 2017 will be a great year for our Universe.

All the best,

 


Wingman

October update - BAMM the torpedoes full speed ahead!

blog-0777881001477342721.jpg

Hello Descenters,

 


I wanted to let you guys know where we are on development. Currently we just released a build with a new map made by Jobode - called BAMM.

 


Lots of comments have called it the best map yet, have you been in the mines to try it out? If not, get in there and get to fighting!

 


 
And if you missed last week's Wingman's Hangar (Fridays at 11am)- here it is in all of its glory:

 


 


We are hard at work on the single-player campaign right now, Rob has gotten the training mission into a good place, and that is going to be entering the Proving Grounds for all of you Undergrounders to play with and help us get it just right.

 


Also, we are working on the bots, story, setting, and how we deliver the mission briefings to you guys and still maintain our Triple-III status!!! Yep, Triple-III - or High-End Independent, and proud of it. Independents rule!

 


Pixley has the radar working, and we are adjusting the HUD to fit the new pieces. Information is better displayed and the usability experience is much smoother.

 


So, enjoy BAMM, and the Halloween goodies that are in there now, next up will be the radar and new and improved HUD....

 


Onwards and upwards Descenters! Be sure to like our Facebook and Twitter to hear the best stuff first!

 


All the best,

 


Wingman

 


P.S. - Did you see who was playing Survival mode recently?

 


 


Yep our pal Jovenshire and the rest of the Smosh crew...Woo-hoo!
