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.

  • Sublevel Zero released! (10/13/2015)

    5 days ago, on October 8th, Sigtrap Games released Sublevel Zero, a First Person Roguelike/lite Shooter with Six Degrees of Freedom! And I have to tell you that I fell in love with this little gem immediately. It was inspired by Descent in many, many ways and it shows.

    So if you’re a Descent fan, you owe it to yourself, to check it out. It’s just $14.99 and you can grab it from Steam or GOG.com (DRM-free).

    And if you’re still undecided, you can watch the VOD of the release stream I did for GOG.com together with the lead developer Luke Thompson right here.
