Hello and welcome to the DXX-Rebirth project!

This project is dedicated to two of the most impressive First-Person Shooters of the nineties:

Descent & Descent 2

DXX-Rebirth is a Source Port of the Descent and Descent 2 Engines for Windows, Mac OS, Linux (most *NIX systems), offering OpenGL graphics and effects, advanced Multiplayer, many improvements and new features.

Descent and Descent 2 are pretty old games so you usually run into problems running it on more recent Hardware and Operating Systems. DXX-Rebirth will also take care about this for you.

It’s Open Source, it’s Multiplatform!

Still DXX-Rebirth is no clone. Our Philosophy is to bring these games to the new millenium, keep ’em alive – reborn. It’s our desire to maintain the original Feeling and Gameplay we all love so much.

In short: If you love these games and if you want to play them, you came to the right place.

  • Descent games leave GOG.com (12/29/2015)

    Some days ago, the Descent games got removed from GOG.com. Fortunately – due to their DRM-free policy – you can still keep your game and continue playing it. But it will be impossible to buy a new copy until the legal/license issues that lead to the removal are resolved. And of course I hope that this will happen soon.

    Of course for the time being I removed the link to Descent 1 & 2 on the Game Content page.

    Right now it’s not clear if the games will also be removed from Steam or not as the details of the issue are unclear. But as stated above, let’s hope that the problem will be resolved rather sooner than later.
