In the last 2 hours, Descent Underground has gone up about 15 thousand dollars, at this rate, we might make it.

Bring back Descent!

Yeah, the campaign just entered into the most tense and stressful moment, it really needs its final rush right now! :o
Just 48 hours to go, be sure to pledge now if you really want to make this happen!

Also note there's a referal contest going out now, so if you gather backers you may have a chance to win an AMD 295X card!
http://descendentstudios.com/community/ ... l-contest/

Tell your friends, tell your family, tell your fiancée and even tell your dog or cat!
We need this to become a reality! :D :!: :E

If the developers are fans of the Descent, in any case they will make a good game. And they can make a good game. The question is, what if they make a bad game just because it was not collected enough money, they are not descenters. In this case, they're not romance, and the ordinary managers.

If the Kickstarter does not raise enough money ($600,000) none of the money is collected. There would be no game.

Or you could show a little integrity and actually pay for the game.

Lothar, now I have no way to pay for purchases via the Internet. It happens sometimes. Although if I see a boxed version in the store, I am ready to immediately pay even 2,000 rubles for this game.

Immediately give me this game. This is the biggest delight that I've ever seen. I do not know the dynamics, but .. in my opinion, it can be called Descent 4

WTF. If they had that trailer at the start of the campaign I would not have questioned anything. The appeal to emotion is such a strong marketing gimmick.

I'm trying to make a sizable pledge right now but keep getting "network error." :/

Well, look at this way- They were able to put together all of those game assets and make them fly, in under a month. I think that shows what they're capable of.

OMG - Is Kickstarter having issues?

Could it be something on Vision's side?
As I see that the number of backers and the total pledged keeps increasing every few minutes.

It was my side. I use script blocking and something crucial to KS was blacklisted. I let it through and was able to submit my pledge.

It did $103,000 in its first 24 hours.

Only needs about $98,000 in the last 24 hours.

It's within reach. If you haven't yet backed, but are thinking about it, jump in. Buy a 4-pack for $100 with alpha/beta access, and when your friends come back to play Descent, you can sell them one of your spare copies at a markup :D

In order to get people to back Descent Underground, I have posted on every youtube channel I can think of to back Descent underground. All my posts were public. What else should I do?

Post on gaming sites that you like.
I posted on all the Flight Sim sights that I read regularly, as well as BluesNews (gaming news site).
Also, any pilots that you keep in touch with. Once I told DatGuy, he immediately backed the project.
Fighting villains is what I do!

I actually pledged more than I could afford because I didn't think they would reach the goal. While I do want a new Descent game, I actually don't even own a computer strong enough to play it, so this will be an interesting situation for me if they actually reach 600k, haha. :E

I don't understand why such tough conditions... It's not the conditions, but a cruel dictatorship! I'll complain to the Hague Tribunal on human rights.


And by the way, Lothar, games, movies and music that I really like, I only have a licensed version.


P.S. I posted a new trailer on the Russian forum of fans of the Descent and the largest Russian social network.
