Welcome to the DXX-Rebirth project!

DXX-Rebirth is a source port of Descent and Descent 2, based on D1X and D2X respectively. Founded in 2005 to keep enjoying those games (on Linux) and published on this very site, the project gained more traction than I could ever have imagined and will eternally be grateful for.

About 10 years later, when I became increasingly involved in other projects, I just couldn't dedicate the time to this port that it and its community deserved anymore and in 2020, I decided to officially retire.

However for the purpose of preservation and for those who would still like to play, tinker or even continue where I left off, the last official version I released will remain available here for as long as I can maintain this space.

There also exists a C++ fork of this project on GitHub and with any luck, by the time you read this, there might be more wonderful ports which keep the spirit of these great games alive.

Thank you

Last but not least I would like to thank all of you players and developers who gave an incredible amount of support and love over the years, provided feedback, code - of course - play the game. Without you, this would never have been possible and I am incredibly happy that the torch is carried on. Thank you!
Maybe we'll meet again some day... in the mines.
