While the gaming world was in a rush to make FPS games to compete with DOOM, Interplay and Parallax took a different approach and turned things upside down with Descent. Literally. Instead of a grounded marine with a gun you were in a spaceship with six degrees of freedom. The result was an addictive if disorienting game that still holds up today.

NOTE: The DXX-Rebirth project builds into separate executables for Descent and Descent II. To play both games you will need to download both apps.
