Descent is a tense and atmospheric narrative-driven Sci-Fi horror adventure where you are sent to investigate the disappearance of a crew on a deep space research vessel.
Created for the Curdle Jam, Descent sees you exploring an abandoned research vessel called the VALIS XI. There’s no sign of the crew, bar one dead body near the entrance, but they have left behind some notes that may help shed some light on what happened there. It appears they’ve been experimenting on huge spider-like alien monsters, hopefully none of them have escaped!
Taking around 15 minutes to play through, Descent really impresses with its tense atmosphere, excellent audio design and clever Sci-Fi narrative. The low rez isometric visuals work well and do a great job of letting you see just enough of the spider monster’s form to really freak you out! Highly recommended.
