3D Realms Is Back From The Dead

Developer 3D Realms is back from the dead. After a closure five years ago, which happened during the ugly Duke Nukem Forever stasis, the name that spawned a ton of classic PC titles is now under new leadership.

The company appoints Mike Nielsen as CEO, whose previous experience includes running Coolshop.com for 11 years, as Scandinavia’s biggest game distributor. Additionally, Frederik Schreiber from Rise of the Triad’s Interceptor Entertainment will become vice president, after their involvement in purchasing the company earlier this year.

Original 3D Realms members Scott Miller and Bryan Turner will be part of the newly launched name as well.

For its first product launch, 3D Realms brings back a whopping 32 of its classic titles, many of them hit games in their time. All games will be sold DRM-free, as well as featuring partial control support and the ability to run on modern PCs.

These 32 titles are bundled in a 3D Realms Anthology pack, which also features a new soundtrack for each game. We’ll list the names below:

  • 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

If you hurry, you can get this bundle at a reduced price of $19.99 for another day, before the price goes back to the normal tag of $39.99.

Strangely enough, this move occurs without any word of Interceptor’s issues with Gearbox, which purchased the rights to make Duke Nukem Forever. Issues between the two companies earlier this year prompted Interceptor to announce its own property, a game called Bombshell, instead of a new Duke Nukem project.
