One of my all-time favourite games was the Descent series, which came out in the mid-nineties. It’s a first-person shooter of a sort, but the game involves flying through tunnels and you can spin and whirl and back up and slide sideways and go up and down…
I still have the discs, but what with going Mac and Win7 and all, they would no longer work, even in DOSbox. Imagine my joy when I stumbled across the Dxx Rebirth project! Seems the game engine had gone open-source and had been ported to the Mac! I downloaded it and installed it, and added the game data files from my old PC discs.
It worked! There I was, playing Descent on a computer that had ten times as much RAM as the original computer I played it on had hard drive space… I could feel all the motor skills coming back, and the memories of the tunnels.
Maybe my friends and I can get a netgame going. Descent 2 was multiplayer I believe.
