Overload Release Date

Posted on May 9, 2018

Overload, the spiritual successor to Descent, made by my friends and former members of the original Parallax Software / Outrage Entertainment team is finally being released on May 31st! The game was successfully kickstarted back in March 2016 and the team has made some incredible progress all along the way. I can't wait to play this on PS4 and VR...that is if my stomach can handle the vertigo. You're going down!  Buy the game now on Steam here.

Descent Forever?

Posted on September 24, 2008

Interplay has a brand new website up with dedicated pages to some of their previous games, including Descent!  Not really sure where this image above comes from, but I assume it's new.  Too bad they didn't get those Pyro-GX's quite right, but it's still cool to see something fresh from the world of Descent.

Their website only has the image below, but it seems Interplay is about to rise from the ashes.  Here's hoping they get their act together soon enough to make a totally kick-ass, next-gen uh, current-gen version of Descent!

Descent, Fallout, Earthworm Jim, MDK, and uh - some elf chick

Descent 3 Tournament in Las Vegas

Posted on August 28, 1999

As part of the release for Descent 3 Interplay sponsored a $50,000 multiplayer tournament in Las Vegas.  Mark, Jerry, Chris P., Damien and I were in attendance to see the winner crowned while also jumping in to play a few matches ourselves.  Great time with the guys and what a fun way to promote the game!
