Apogee Software and Interceptor Entertainment are bringing back a long-dormant shooter with Rise of the Triad. The original was released way back in 1995, and involved fast shooting, bizarre weapons and, at least for the time, surprising amounts of gore.

This updated version is being built using Unreal Engine 3 and will feature a 20 stage single-player campaign as well as a multiplayer mode. Like in the original, you'll still be able to fire Drunk Missiles and rejoice as enemies explode into bits, as this version will include a full dismemberment system. As one of five playable characters, you'll be able to check out Rise of the Triad later this year on Steam.

It seems like Apogee and Interceptor are taking advantage of Valve's platform by including the ability to build and share levels through Steamworks. If you don't care about building and sharing levels, you'll still get plenty of other ways to extend the play experience beyond the base content, as plenty of secret areas, collectibles and modes (such as God mode, Elasto Mode, Shrooms Mode and Dog mode) will be included.

Wow... Old school.

Now let's get Duke Nukem....oh wait. Oh! Shadow Warrior should be next! Or at least, make a version available on Steam or something.

Looks like some actual mp maps too not the crap that passes for maps now days. Guess you have to leave it to an old school dev to bring some of that old school fps magic back. I'll definitely try this nostalgia be damned.

I have an un-opened copy of Shadow Warrior I picked up at Micro Center a few years back. They stockpile old game software like crazy.

I have the actual copy on cd still.....somewhere. I could just never get it to work in modern Windows environment. Even with all the 'tricks' out there. Bleh.

I remember Shadow Warrior playing perfectly with a recent version of DOSBox. As per usual, some settings like number of CPU cycles needed adjustments.

I once again revisited Shadow Warrior last night using DOSBox in Windows 7. This game seems to never get old. biggrin.gif

Once you get to know the ins and outs of DOSBox (mounting an ISO for CD music, configuring sound and video, etc.), it really becomes a godsend for nostalgic gamers unwilling to use a dinosaur of a PC.

I'd rather have it run horribly, horrifically, stupendously, rip-roaringly, appendix rupturingly fantastic. But, horribly fantastic will do.
