Descenders is a game developed by RageSquid and published by No More Robots. It was released on Steam Early Access on February 9, 2018, on Xbox Game Preview on May 15, 2018, and on the Discord Store on November 15, 2018. The game graduated from Early Access/Game Preview on May 7, 2019.

In January 2020, simultaneous physical and digital releases for the PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch were announced, in a partnership with Sold Out. Originally, all versions (Switch/PS4, physical/digital) were planned to release simultaneously, but the simultaneous PS4 and Switch release was scrapped. The release date for the PS4 version (simultaneous physical and digital) occurred on August 25, 2020; the release date for the Switch (simultaneous physical and digital) occurred on November 6, 2020.

Around March/April 2020, the Discord version of the game was retired. People owning the game on that platform are encouraged to contact the developers with proof of purchase for a Steam copy.
