Get the full trilogy with a 66% discount or each game for 40% off!


Did you guys take your Dramamine this morning? Looks like you might need it soon: the beloved Descent trilogy is back and it's going to spin you right round right round.

Indeed, after disappearing into the darkness for a while, the series that pioneered six degrees of freedom shooting now finally re-emerges on GOG.com. If for whatever unfortunate reason you are not already acquainted with their ground-breaking 3D brilliance, now is your chance to redeem yourself before anyone finds out: get the entire trilogy in a Pack with a 66% discount or just buy Descent, Descent II and Descent 3 individually for -40% each.

This offer lasts until November 26, 11PM UTC.

dmcybe: Overload is a complete different game it has nothing to do with decsent games it's own game
To quote from the website: "The creators of Descent are proud to present the ultimate 6-degrees-of-freedom shooter, OVERLOAD. Revival Productions is continuing where Parallax left off and creating an all-new game that combines the best of classic 6-DOF gameplay with modern graphics and technology. Destroy robots, rescue hostages, blow up the reactor, and escape before the whole thing explodes."

Sounds like a spiritual successor to me.

dmcybe: on the steam page it saids it not part of the descent games i own the early access
And Dragon Age isn't a part of the Baldur's Gate series, but was called a spiritual successor when it was released. A spiritual successor doesn't need to be part of the same game series/franchise; it's a successor in spirit of said game series/franchise.

Yes, it's not part of the Descent universe, but it's a very similar game that is really very excellent :)

EDIT: No, I haven't. Have you heard of parody? How about irony? Perhaps thread necromancy? No? Well, then. ;)
