Yes, an honest-to-goodness effort to reboot the PC gaming classic Descent has just hit Kickstarter. Descent was one of the original "3D" games, and its six-degrees-of-freedom maneuverability was demanding but awesome back in the day. It even gave birth to new types of controllers, like the Space Orb, specifically designed for six-axis control.
I was never awesome at Descent, but I still remember some making some gratifying kills, even if I was hanging upside down and banging my ship on the wall of the cavern at the time.
Seems like Descent deserves to make a comeback in the era of VR headsets. Here's hoping it works out.
