    The batshit crazy Apogee game gets a remake:



    I personally thought the original was hugely underrated. Still great fun to play.

    Loved the original, but it always crashed at the moment of killing the end boss.

    The magic mushrooms were funny.

    I am all over this. Looks like they totally 'got' the original game.

    I was worried at the start of that trailer, but was relieved to see the insanity has survived intact.

    Just hope it doesn't get buried (in a lunchbox) by other bigger FPS games.

    I hope you can still turn into a dog and kill enemies with superpowered barks

    @the_dudefather - 'Dogging' was confirmed in the story on the front page. Woof!

    @Ged42 - Something tells me it'll be a budget release, less than 20 at launch. That would suit this kind of knock-about game, and give it a chance against bigger name offerings.

    I loved the multiplayer in the original, especially when whoring the flying power up.

    Details from Gamespy interview http://uk.pc.gamespy.com/pc/rise-of-the-triad-2012/1225624p1.html

    -Game has been in development for just six months so far
    -Single player campaign is 20 levels with four bosses, all of which return from the original (it's a reboot!)
    -VERY score-attack oriented - killing lots of enemies with the one weapon earns multipliers, but you also get bonus points from secret areas. Speedrun or poke around?
    -Global leaderboards for scores and stats.
    -No co-op because it would have delayed the project, they definitely want to add additional multiplayer stuff in free updates so...
    -Multiplayer is very fast and Q3A-ish. Don't expect comp-level balance, they're going for "chaotic fun".
    -Quakecon floor demo is 3v3, final version will support 32 players.
    -Roughly 55% complete, release date later this year, with plans for -long-term support
    -$15 price tag

    This looks fucking great. Apogee intro gave me nostalgia chills.

    I hope Remote Ridicule makes a return, I know there's voice comms these days but pressing a button and calling someone a "wiener" using the Beavis & Butt-head voice pack was always entertaining in my office.

    Excalibat!



    Also decided to dust of the old ROTT, found a program called WinRott that makes it easier to run on the newer versions of windows without all that faffing around with DosBox.

    Is it an engine replacement o just a launcher? I got the game running fine, but I'd be more interested in an engine replacement that gets rid of that terrible existing mouselook nonsense.

    Looks like a replacement, hamachi lan game anyone?

    Here's some download for Rott - http://3drealms.com/downloads.html

    Actually, I'd love an update for Shadow Warrior while they're at it.

    That looks fun, but I get the feeling it will quickly loose its charm after a very short time, unless there is some kind of depth to it.

    One of the only games I can remember where enemies beg for their lives. Loved the God Mode too.
