As for forum upgrades, I wish we could get some kind of upvote or 'like' or something. Or maybe something that shows how many times it's been viewed

Woah - as one of those so called "Hacks" let's be real here. Before we came along Descent was wallowing in the sock drawer of Interplay, we loved the original, wanted to bring it back, or at least the type of game, so started to make "Ships That Fight Underground" or STFU for short, and were contacted by Interplay to license the name and make it an actual Descent game - we were OVERJOYED and jumped at the chance.
So, we all took a massive risk to bring back an IP that most gamers under 30 have no idea existed.
Calling us HACKS for taking a risk to bring back something we loved is insulting to say the least.
We are also fans of Overload - and backers - there is not a zero sum game here, we can all win by having more and more 6Dof games to play - there is not one winner to rule them all...many people play Battlefield and Call of Duty.
And for the record, we asked Matt and Mike to join us in making this game, but they decided to do their own 6Dof game Overload, and we totally respect that.
Our game is based upon Descent 1 and the flight mechanics and speeds, but we are adding a TON MORE GAME play for a modern audience, instead of one ship we have 9, all with roles to play, and special abilities, unlocks and such - it is a huge undertaking by a small team of developers (around 10), and we are doing it out of passion for the genre.
Please stop this us vs them nonsense, it is unnecessary and we as Devs don't participate in it, we want more good games.

Star Shit! Now we have Star Marine, more time wasted on side shit that could have been better used for the main game.

Yeah, never do it. Company misses a paycheck don't bother showing up unless it's to take stuff for collateral until you're paid and start looking for something else immediately.

regardless of what the FAKE main stream communist propaganda outlets spew or more often IGNORE.

In my myriad discussions with people about Westworld, I find that the people who find it boring or confusing generally didn't understand the underlying complexity of the questions the show was posing and took the entire thing at face value.
