[Happy Birthday!] Descent


Hello old games lovers,

If you’re like the ones who suffer from motion sickness while playing games with VR I won’t definitely suggest you Descent that, even though it soesn’t support VR, can make your hear spin and give you nausea. Anyway we can forgive it, since today is its 25th anniversary, having been released in March 17th, 1995. As stated on the box with Descent you’re immersed in a 360° fully 3D environment where you can wander moving on all three axis with the result that after like 10 seconds you can’t tell anymore where is up and where is down and you really won’t know where to go. Aside from this, Descent was a great game with very good reviews and good sales, with more that a millions of copies sold.


Buongiorno retroamici,

Siete tra quelli che soffrono di motion sickness quando usano il VR? Bene, allora non vi cosniglio Descent che, anche se non supporta il VR può farvi girare la testa e causare nausea. Ma lo perdoniamo perchè proprio oggi compie 25 anni, essendo stato rilasciato il 17 Marzo, 1995. Come riportato sulla confezione con Descent si è immersi in un ambiente a 3D a 360° dove possiamo girarovagare spostandoci su tutti e tre gli assi con il risultato che dopo 10 secondi di gioco non saprete più dov’è il su e dov’è il giù e non saprete più dove andare. Ma a parte questo Descent fu un gran gioco con ottime recensioni e ottime vendite, superiori al milione di copie.
