Descent is a 3D first-person shooter video game developed by Parallax Software and released by Interplay in Europe in 1995. The game features six degrees of freedom gameplay and was followed by several expansion packs, as well as a 1996 port to the PlayStation. Ports were also announced for the Sega Saturn and Panasonic M2, but these were later cancelled. The game is set out in the Solar System where the player is cast as the Material Defender, a mercenary hired by the PTMC.

Descent spawned two direct sequels: Descent II in 1996 and Descent 3 in 1999. In June 2016, a spiritual successor titled Overlord was funded on Kickstarter, raising $306,537 USD through crowdfunding to bring “Descent” back to the PC and has been greenlit on Steam. On April 10, 2015, a prequel titled Descent: Underground was successfully funded on Kickstarter, raising over $600,000 USD through crowdfunding to bring Descent back to the PC with release expected in 2016.

On March 12, 2016 Matt Toschlog and Mike Kulas (designers of the original Descent games) successfully funded Overload on Kickstarter, describing it as a ‘spiritual successor’ to the Descent series. The game has entered development and is slated for a 2017 release.

As of December 2015, Descent had been withdrawn from sale via GOG.com and Steam due to a dispute between Parallax Software and publisher Interplay.

    Fun game. Recently tried it on the PSP with the PS1 version, no clue how anyone could play it on the PS1 without any kind of analog input!
    Speaking of motion sickness, I wonder if they got a VR version.

    If they don't make a modern sequel to these games, I'll do it myself.

    There is a small community of players that still play this game competitively. We have a coder that got the game to work on the newest operating systems etc and made some fixes to the game that were long over-due. The ladder can be found here: http://descentchampions.org/ and they meet up on Discord here: https://discord.gg/Df3j8kP

    I was obsessed with this game as a child. I played it so often and I played with keyboard only, so I was terrible at it. But it was super fun.

    Why would an inner ear equilibrium problem have any affect on watching a flat screen with your head not moving in a fixed motionless seat? If it was a VR game with a headset and you were physically moving around then that inner ear problem would come into play but not watching a screen.

    When I was a kid I assumed this game was a space sim, so I tried to play it with a joystick. Not recommended!

    I really want a propped console port of Descent 1, 2 and 3, throw in Freespace 1 and 2 too.
    Edit: as of an hour after posting this, I just found out on the PlayStation store that this December, Descent will be ported on the PS4!

    Some 90's gamers started on Doom. Some started on Descent. I'm an original Descenter and proud. This game will always have a place in my heart

    mouse movement is pretty horrible in this game. if you can find yourself a joystick then get one of those. makes this game so much easier to play through

    Aw the good old times, when an AI core become infected and started building hostile robots and cyborg-zombies with the crew of a ship or space station. Storylines of games are not that good anymore nowadays.

    I believe the game series "Free Cell" (or Space) was a sequel series to these games.

    Hulk's are easier than you're making them out to be. You need to hit them really hard early on before they can establish suppressive rocket fire. One well placed concussion missile can throw off it's balance and make it a sitting duck for pounding on. Just like in doom, getting hit messes with you physics, but unlike Doom, enemies can't instantly turn any direction. The result is that single missile can set up a string of very damaging salvos that go essentially unanswered.

    This was the first FPS my parents let us have because, well, “no blood.” It was fun but hearing the sound in this video is surreal because the sound NEVER worked on the computer we had.

    I remember these were among my favourite games at the time. I used to love being able to kill bots with the splash damage of shooting the lava near them.

    Ah, nostalgia! First got into gaming in 1995 with C&C. I played Descent 1's 7 level freeware over and over with my sister back then. We loved it. Those green bots with the claws were terrifying. 😂
