Message from Matt about Descent Legal Action

Hi everyone,

Today, some news sites reported our January lawsuit against Descendent Studios and CEO Eric Peterson, and I would like to send a message to the backers of Descent: Underground and fans of the franchise.

To start, I cannot know how frustrating this situation has been for you. I want to personally apologize for the lack of communication. Little Orbit remains under non-disclosure, and we are engaged in an active lawsuit, so we are severely limited in what we can share at this time.

With that in mind, I do want to say the following:

  • Descendent Studios has shut down their website/forums and ceased working on the game. This was made public by their CEO Eric Peterson some time ago.
  • Since then, we have made every attempt to resolve this matter without legal action, but all of those efforts have failed.
  • We did not receive any of the Kickstarter money, so we cannot refund any of those funds.
  • Since we do not yet have a release date for the game, we have processed refunds for all of the pre-orders we took.

Finally, we are all in this together. We love this game, and Little Orbit has spent a significant amount of time, money, and effort to help Descendent Studios deliver the game.

It is still our intention to get the game out as soon as possible.

Thanks,
Matt
