3D Realms Returns After Five-Year Absence

| 23 Oct 2014 13:34

3D Realms is back in business, releasing a collection of classic titles with the 3D Realms Anthology.

After a five-year hiatus, 3D Realms has returned to the world of the living with the announcement of its 3D Realms Anthology collection, featuring 32 games from its storied past.

The enviable collection is DRM-free and on sale for $19.99 for the next 48 hours. Along with a freshly remastered soundtrack, it features several games PC gamers may recall from their past, like the Commander Keen series, Duke Nukem, and Shadow Warrior. The full list includes the following:

  • Arctic Adventure
  • Bio Menace
  • Blake Stone: Aliens of Gold
  • Commander Keen: Goodbye Galaxy
  • Commander Keen: Invasion of the Vorticons
  • Math Rescue
  • Monster Bash
  • Mystic Towers
  • Paganitzu
  • Monuments of Mars
  • Cosmo's Cosmic Adventure
  • Crystal Caves
  • Death Rally
  • Alien Carnage
  • Hocus Pocus
  • Major Stryker
  • Blake Stone: Planet Strike
  • Realms of Chaos
  • Pharaoh's Tomb
  • Word Rescue
  • Secret Agent
  • Raptor: Call of the Shadows
  • Terminal Velocity
  • Wacky Wheels
  • Stargunner
  • Shadow Warrior
  • Wolfenstein 3D
  • Rise of the Triad: Dark War
  • Duke Nukem
  • Duke Nukem 2
  • Duke Nukem 3D
  • Duke Nukem: Manhattan Project
  • Once a respected and recognizable name in the '90s, 3D Realms slowly faded into obscurity over the next decade or so before Interceptor Entertainment's acquisition, of course, until now.

    With original members Scott Miller and Bryan Turner on board, the company has appointed CEO Mike Nielsen and vice president Frederik Schreiber, CEO of Interceptor Entertainment, to steer the ship in what will hopefully be a new and prosperous direction.

    As of right now, the company has not announced any plans for additional projects or brand new games, but making their catalogue of classic games available to players without the need for PC optimization or complicated emulation is a pleasant surprise and a great way to make a comeback.
