Descent: Underground is an upcoming 3D first-person shooter video game being developed by Descendent Studios. A prequel to the 1994 video game Descent, it was successfully funded via crowdfunding website Kickstarter on April 10, 2015, and released on Steam as an Early Access title on October 22, 2015. == Development == In November 2014, several former developers for the game Star Citizen, led by Eric "Wingman" Peterson announced that they were forming Descendent Studios to work on a multiplayer game similar to Descent in play style, and with the working title Ships That Fight Underground. The company was approached by an Interplay shareholder in December who set up a meeting with the CEO of Interplay and Descendent Studios. A deal was then struck to license the Descent name to Descendent Studios. In March 2015, Descendent Studios announced a Kickstarter campaign for Descent: Underground, a new prequel using Interplay's existing trademark rights to the Descent franchise which include the name "Descent" and a few sound effects and midi tracks (with Parallax Software owning all remaining properties, such as the original "Pyro GX" ship, some sound and music clips and copyrights to the descent universe which includes weapons, story and all level assets.).
