Clickable screenshot here -

Used to be one of my favorite games; everything seems to work; midi music plays, mouse controls work but resolution seems to be limited to 800x600. Still, very cool - it even adds an entry to Debian's menu :)

Enjoy -

edit: phenest pointed out that both are in Stretch (and Sid) repos. No need to download unknown debs :)

I have Descent and Descent II original DOS games. Never tried the Linux port.

Let's see... d1x-rebirth and d2x-rebirth in the Stretch repos. Cool!

Just tried the ones in Sid's repos, they refused to run. Hopefully you'll have better luck.

Just in case, here are links to the author's .deb files, just install in this order with gdebi -

I love descent. It is one of my favourite classics. I was amazed that I could play descent 1 and 2 again with this source port reliving memories.

I couldn't find my old CDs though so I bought the game from Good Old Games.

For me the game runs in full screen, the option is hidden in "Screen Resolution"

It's nice to see people who still play Descent. :)

Installed d1x-rebirth and d2x-rebirth from the Stretch repo. Very cool games and look so good too. You'd never believe these were DOS games.

But the intro music isn't as I remember.
