3D Realms anthology arrives on Steam, stuffed with 32 games

Blocky blurry spaceships in Terminal Velocity

In its day, 3D Realms / Apogee made some of the defining games of the DOS era. I remember the names even when I don’t remember the games: Blake Stone, Rise of the Triad, Death Rally, Terminal Velocity… the list goes on. And, of course, there was Duke Nukem.

Now, they’re all back on Steam as part of the 3D Realms Anthology, a 32-game bundle featuring some of the biggest names in shareware gaming.

The bundle is PC and Mac-compatible, and is selling for $30, though that’s a sale-price. It will be $40 once the sale is over.

The full list of games is pretty huge, and should stir a lot of fond and familiar memories.

  • Alien Carnage / Halloween Harry

  • Arctic Adventure

  • Balls of Steel

  • Bio Menace

  • Blake Stone: Aliens of Gold

  • Blake Stone: Planet Strike

  • Cosmo’s Cosmic Adventure

  • Crystal Caves

  • Dark Ages

  • Death Rally

  • Duke Nukem

  • Duke Nukem 2

  • Duke Nukem 3D

  • Duke Nukem: Manhattan Project

  • Hocus Pocus

  • Major Stryker

  • Math Rescue

  • Monster Bash

  • Monuments of Mars

  • Mystic Towers

  • Paganitzu

  • Pharaoh’s Tomb

  • Raptor: Call of the Shadows

  • Realms of Chaos

  • Rise of the Triad: Dark War

  • Secret Agent

  • Shadow Warrior (Classic)

  • Stargunner

  • Terminal Velocity

  • Wacky Wheels

  • Word Rescue

  • Xenophage

It’s a tempting offer. But I’m also a little scared to try these old games, if only because I dread finding out that my memory has once again played tricks on me and they’re not as great as I remember.
