3D Realms rises from the grave with a 32-game anthology

3D Realms revived

Despite its legacy, developer 3D Realms has been known more for lawsuits than games over the last few years, and earlier this year, its remains were acquired by Rise of the Triad (the remake) developer Interceptor. This all happened while Gearbox was suing both companies for announcing a Duke Nukem game. 

Today, the veteran developer is back, reformed by Interceptor and some of the original team. First thing on the docket for the newly resurrected company is the release of a massive anthology of old 3D Realms games, from Duke Nukem 3D to Commander Keen. 

Here’s the mighty list of 32 games:

  • 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

For the next two days, the anthology will only set you back $19.99, but only for the next two days. After that, it will jump up to $39.99. The package comes with a custom launcher, controller support and a re-mastered soundtrack with 9 re-composed 3D Realms and Apogee tracks.

Crawling out of the Lazarus Pit, the new-old developer has grown a new limb: 3D Realms Accelerate. It’s an indie investment platform designed to “nurture new talent to add yet another dimension to an already-diverse and dynamic industry — all with the help of industry veterans such as Scott Miller”
