    “Prepare for Descent”
    That’s the primal slogan.

    Any way that could be implemented again in Overload, without breaking any annoying copyright-blabla?

    For instance, at every level start there could be a short sequence where all ship-systems boot up like in Sublevel Zero.
    Add to this a computer voice (preferable soothing female) like:

    “All systems activated. Prepare for Descent.”

    Descent.
    All about Descent.

    (‘Overload’ would better in this case then ‘Insertion’)

    “All systems activated. Prepare for Insertion.”
    “All systems activated. Prepare for Overload.”
    “All systems activated. Prepare for Descent.”

    I really want ‘Descent’
    That’s the poínt. [of this thread}

    But anyhow. Thanks for contributing, CDN_Merlin.
    I realy appreciate.

    English is not my main language, so there is poisbillty of error in my ‘Ausdrucksweise’ (mode of expression[?]).
    sorry to all.

    No, they don’t have the legal right to use the Descent Intellectual Property – only Descendent Studios does now. That’s why this game is called “Overload”. That’s why it’s not Descent. That’s why it’s merely a spiritual successor to the original Descent.

    Prepare for Overload…

    Trademark crap aside, I think a beginning-level “systems check” would be great. Think about the text startup on the D3 loading screen, or the startup sequence in Mechwarrior 2.

    Certainly for singleplayer, maybe for the initial start on MP levels would be cool too.

    Yeah, that would definitely increase the immersion!

    Well, who knows, maybe there’ll be some insertion technology in-universe called an “Overload”. 😛

    Didn’t Sublevel Zero use the phrase “Prepare to Descend” at the end of the intro text.

    I don’t remember. Why?

    Admittedly, I’m a bit of a sucker for stuff like this in games. In Mechwarrior Online (I seem to mention that game a lot on these forums), before a match starts, you see your pilot hitting a bunch of buttons and levers to power on his mech and all of its systems accompanied by a guitar riff. It’s a minor thing, but it just really gets you pumped up for the match ahead.

    Absolutely, Quadruplesword–things like that kind of prime your imagination for the game ahead.

    “Prepare for Descent” was basically a loading screen. I think, in Overload – they could make it so that you see the ‘insertion’ process, rather than just imagine it. So if there is a dramatic descent involved – wouldn’t it be cool just to see it?

    Every good form of entertainment works together with with the imagination. If there’s something cool to show then by all means show it, but don’t be naive enough to think that 2016/2017 graphics can take the place of imagination. So no it wouldn’t be cool to just see it, even if it would be justifiably cool to see it. 🙂

    Why not, “Prepare for Overload”?

    Or it could be “Countdown to overload”
