    Was the point of the eerie level “Original Zero” that the virus actually came from hell?

    There is this kind of spooky pentagram and that’s how the level ends? It seemed like a big allusion to the idea that the “alien” virus actually came from a dimension of evil.

    Yeah, please explanations on this! I thought it would just be a secret weapons lab where you’ll find the omega cannon.

    To tell you the truth, I don’t really remember. But I doubt that we meant to imply that the virus came from hell; the Descent story is definitely science fiction and the hell element wouldn’t fit.

    If I remember correctly, the virus was created by some insect-like aliens that were destroyed in level 4 of the Descent 3 Mercenary expansion pack (3rd favorite D3 level).

    Origin Zero kinda seemed like a fun tangential story section that was not fully developed.

    Just out of curiosity, what are you top favorite D3 levels, is Merc L4 is your 3rd?

    I remember hearing that Origin Zero was a collection of ideas that never fell through. I could see the red thing in the red room (the thing that looks like it could be an eye) being a wind tunnel.

    Are you sure Pyro?
    I remember there being text logs on that map that implied the planetoid was mined out by humans who found the insects and studied them, and never mentioned the virus at all.
