Descent: Underground opens up to pre-alpha testing

Or what was once known as the alpha.

Last week, Descent: Underground made its debut at the Rooster Teeth Expo in Austin, Texas. Pretty neat for fans of the game who could make it, yes? It’d be hard to top this week that unless the game offered its first build to backers this week or something. Not coincidentally, this is exactly what happened: The pre-alpha build is now playable by a group of players known as the “advisory board,” with more backers to be brought in as time rolls on.

Descent: Underground is based on the ’90s shooter franchise of the same name, rebuilt into a MOBA framework. The game ran a successful Kickstarter campaign back in April of this year, so it’s offered a pretty impressive turnaround from funding to playability. You can check out some footage of the game at last week’s expo just below.

It sounds interesting, but I suspect of any developer that worked and follow/defend the same principles of marketing than Chris Roberts.
