    Just saw a tweet from Wario64, they’re all back and on sale (1 and 2 are separate now, not bundled). Did something get worked out with Interplay?

    Yes, Parallax Software (that’s Matt and me) worked out an agreement with Interplay by which Descent can be sold. We were going to post about it, but didn’t realize it would happen this quickly. 🙂

    We’ll have more to say after Thanksgiving weekend.

    Thanks for pointing this out!

    Sweet. If I hadn’t had the games already before this whole mess happened I’d totally go in for them now.

    What would be nice is if descent 2’s gog version would let you switch between the two cd soundtracks. The long tracks are nice but it never feels llike six is enough.
    I guess that would be up to interplay though.

    Yeah and it’d great to reach a deal that enables Vertigo to be sold, too.

    Ooh, they included that? I should see if my old purchase got updated…

    edit: Whoops, didn’t read enough

    I’m not sure, I think it was put out at the same time that Parallax split in two. I recall hearing it was Outrage who ultimately put it out, but Dan was the lead level designer and he ended up with Volition, so even that’s pretty confused.

    Descent 3 isn’t developed nor owned by Parallax Software, I assume interplay bought the rights to Descent 3 from THQ since it was developed by Outrage Entertainment or Games, I was wondering why that game gets pulled as well if the copyright says Outrage?

    Because Descent 3 was published by Interplay. Outrage was only acquired by THQ some time after that.

    hmm then that means the rights to descent 3 could lie with THQ Nordic then

    Keen to hear if Descent will return to Steam as I enjoy the convenience of having my games attached to the Steam library. If it returns to the steam store I will definitely purchase! Great news regardless!
