3D Realms (Apogee) is back with the 3D Realms Anthology

Since the problems the company had following the chaotic development of Duke Nukem Forever (then transferred by its publisher Take Two to Gearbox Software) and its acquisition by Interceptor Entertainment in March 2014, there was no real news about 3D Realms. But the company recently adopted a new design for its logo and its website, and has announced the release of a new downloadable pack containing 32 old games of its golden age: Wolfenstein 3D, Duke Nukem 1, 2, 3D and Manhattan Project, Shadow Warrior, Commander Keen, Terminal Velocity, Raptor: Call of the Shadows, Rise of the Triad, Crystal Caves, Secret Agent, Black Stone, and many others! (but not Max Payne, Prey, or even Doom) All these games are compatible with the most recent Windows systems.

In this pack, you can also find a remastered sountrack for 9 of these games, including Duke Nukem 2 or Shadow Warrior. You can buy it on the 3D Realms website for $39,99 (= 32 euros).

Note that the post announcing the release of this pack has also a very interesting article about the history of 3D Realms: how it was founded by Scott Miller and George Broussard in 1987, how it revolutionized the industry with its shareware model, and how it created plenty of legendary games before collapsing in 2000’s.
