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.
It’s been nearly 16 years since we last prepared for Descent. Now Descendent Studios plans to revive the franchise with a new entry in the series: Descent: Underworld!
We all love and cherish this great series as it entertained us for all these years and still does to this day. And we all do our part – we are an active community of developers, modders, level creators and players. And now we can actively help Descent: Underworld to be born – by becoming a backer! Yes, it is founded via Kickstarter! So if you want to help, head over to their project page and show your support!

I know, I know. I would also rather write “DXX-Rebirth updated”, but it’s coming along, trust me.
However today I had to update the website. The theme I was using before didn’t get an update for 4 years (ironic, isn’t it?) and it was breaking with each new version of WordPress. So I switched over to another theme, which I hope you’ll all like. If not, please feel free to post a thread in the forums. I can always update the colors (tho I like reading black text on white background), font size and such. Just let me know.
Oh and one more thing: DXX-Rebirth has a Twitter Account. I haven’t posted much on it, yet, since I wasn’t really promoting it, but since it’s not visible on the frontpage, I guess it will serve good to keep you updated about the newest developments.
I wish you all a wonderful day.
I’ll make it short: If you like Descent, you probably like Freespace. And GOG.com currently has Freespace 1 plus it’s exapansion and Freespace 2 in sale. Dirt cheap with extras AND DRM-free. Worth it. So get it.
