So a friend showed me this the other day on Kickstarter. A development team with a lot of space sim experience wants to remake Descent, apparently as a massively PvP space capitalism game, possibly ala EVE or Star Conflict. EDIT: actually not like EVE. Much more team deathmatch FPS like the originals.
Descent was my absolute most favorite game for the majority of the 90's. I'd love to see it resurrected, although I'm not sure I'll be into the type of game they want to turn it into. I get that it bringing it into a genre with current appeal is a smarter move than a simple remake, though.
I would probably buy it at least to try it out. I love the original that much. Any other former fans watching this one?
