Eric 'Wingman' Peterson, Rob Irving, Jason Spangler & Michael Morlan, ex-RSI employees all, plus a number of other long-time gaming gurus have got together to bring good 'ole Descent bang up to date.
I remember playing the original games back in the day and the complete disorientation that came with the complete freedom given to the players. There was no up and down... it was truly gut wrenching at times.
Whilst I can't imagine it'll be anywhere as big in scope as Star Citizen, and it doesn't pretend to be, this game could be awesome.
I dropped $30 on it. IMHO it's worth taking a punt if you remember the originals.
Plus the team behind it are great fun
