...what are you talking about? They've been releasing updated versions of the game pretty much every week. Actually they just added co-op mode versus AI bots in the last update.

I think that the D:U forum in the DBB is dead, but the project is alive and kicking!

They are pretty far from dead, it's an official Descent game after all, and it's improving and growing more each time.
It's going pretty good!

My my, take a look at the colour of your glasses. :lol:

They had a couple hiccups with some major bugs in the last few weeks but they're back on track now and releasing updates again.

They have to do something very impressive that I even became interested in this game again.

Yeah...

I get newsletters from the DU developers every few weeks.
I cried shenanigans over 2 years ago calling DU a moneygrab etc.
Seems like it's still the same sort of deal. Lots of updates patches and re-re-re-re-re-re-re-re-(etc...) releases of a beta version.
There was talk back then of a release date. Recently... NADA!
I'm a horse that's smart enough to realize that THAT carrot dangling in front of me on a stick will always be out of my reach!

I gave up on it. Sadly it's not what I had hoped it would be. I keep the game updated and try it once after each update but it really sucks compared to overload and even D1/2/3 of old.

How is it a "moneygrab" if they're continuously putting out new content and updates? Putting one's opinions of the game itself aside, this is easily one of the most open crowdfunded gaming projects I've come across. They've been very upfront about their plans going forward and issues that have popped up along the way. (It's pretty much the anti-Star Citizen in that regard.) Honestly I've spent little to no time with the game itself, but nothing I've seen makes me regret backing them from a developer standpoint.

A kickstarter is never a guarantee you will get anything, let alone what you want. I don't regret contributing to the D:U funding, even though it is clearly off in the middle of nowhere near the core of what made Descent really tick. I don't even really have any plans to play it (because I quit descent years ago), but I am glad to see they are still working on it and from the sounds of it enjoying their work.

Eeh, there's a vast grey area between "Descent-level fun" and "not fun at all". I'm sure I'll be jumping in occasionally especially once they have some singleplayer content.

I'll probably make time to play the SP campaign if it ever materializes, but I abandoned the D:U website and any updates over a year ago. They seems to be doing everything I don't like about gaming. Can't wait for Overload. I haven't downloaded any betas because I want the finished product. I don't even watch footage of the game and am very selective of the threads I read because I don't want spoilers!

I supported their efforts and gave them a sizable donation during the KS. Overall though, just like Krom, I just don't really play Descent or games much at all these days, with the exception of the odd bit of modding. I praise them for their efforts and they are a nice bunch of guys. But Underground just doesn't sit right with me. Overload really does nail the Descent vibe and DU seems to completely miss it.
