So, I never even heard of this game until I read the thread about Smart maybe making Freespace 3 over at GG a while back.

I want to try it, but none of the 15+ sites on the offical page that are supposed to host the demo file have it. . . guess it has been too long?

Anyone know where I can download the demo?

thx.

P.S.  Is Descent: Freespace the same Descent that came out when Doom was popular?  I remember playing a game where u are a ship flying around in caves and shooting things?

Not the same game. Freespace is a space sim ala Wing Commander but much better....the regular Descent was a 3D maze like action title.

You can get the files in the download sections here:
http://freespace.volitionwatch.com/

Be warned, lots of annoying pop-ups on this site.


Freespace was made by the same people as the original Descent games (Volition).  It had nothing to do with Descent, but that was part of the original title to try to make it more appealing to an existing market.  (The original Descent was the game you're thinking of - 3d shooter in a mine).

Doesn't the EULA say that you can burn copies for your friends?  I could burn you a copy and send it in the mail maybe?

Its not like those. It is not freeform. You play a member of a space navy and fly missions.
