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.
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.
