The Descenders looks like the speed fix we didn’t know we craved

Sometimes we want politics, complex RPG levelling, strings of combos for maximum punishment. Other times we just want speed. Lots and lots of speed. Descenders is here to give that to us in extreme doses.

Ride your bike through procedurally generated worlds, trying to find the best path. Developed by RageSquid, who brought us Action Henk, the game features a risk/ reward system revolving around not falling off your bike. Considering the speed that you will be racing past trees and rocks and who knows what, I think it is safe to say you will be bailing pretty often.

There are three teams that represent varying styles of play and community leaderboards will rack up scores from everyone in your team for monthly prizes for the best team. Get on your bike and aim for breakneck speeds in Kinetic, or do you prefer off-road nature rides with Arboreal? If neither of those appeal, there is also the trick-chaining die-hards in Enemy.

If you are interested in trying out the beta when it launches, go pick a team over on the Descenders Discord. Time to get fast.

If it has the letters RPG in it, I am there. Still battling with balancing trying to play every single game that grabs my interest, getting 100% in a JRPG, and devoting time to my second home in Azeroth.
