Storage Room Environment Video
So here it is hot of the press, the first level for Descension is complete. As you can see we have made dramatic improvements to the storage room you first encountered in the alpha version of the game, if your not familiar with that version why not give it a download here and experience the changes for yourself. We hope you enjoy the video and you can expect to see a lot more updates like this in the build up to the beta version release.
We give Traeven life
So it’s been a long hard slog to this point but we have finally given Traeven the character model we believe he deserves. He was concepted by Don Pyatt and modelled by Ofek Maymoni. Now that he has been modelled he has been sent over to Mathias our Animator to be rigged. We look forward to showing off what he can do in the not to distant future.
Were very pleased to announce than Chris Escalante will be voicing our lead villain Mahule for Descension.

NEW Descension Teaser
Descent becomes Descension
Hi, so to keep everyone in the loop we have recently changed the name of the game from Descent: The Uprising to Descension. The reasoning behind this was purely a business decision as we feel Descension is a cleaner name. If anyone has been playing the original demo we apologies for the any confusion caused.
