Maybe some of you remember the time where the genre “3D shooter” was introduced on PCs under DOS. Starting with the then quite controversial “Wolfenstein 3D” (1992) and following titles as “Doom” (1993) or “Duke Nukem 3D” (1996). “Rise of the Triad” was published in 1994 by Apogee and was also a typical representative of this genre. Later there was also an OpenGL port created, called WinRottGL, which is still playable on todays systems.
Now it’s 2013 – and after nearly 20 years there is a new edition of “Rise of the Triad”, but see for yourself…
PS: If you have a problem with 3D shooters and exaggerated scenes of violance you should not watch the videos.
PS²: No – you also must not take such stuff serious – my friends know me as a peaceloving guy and I also served as as a conchie in Germany.
This was the original game in 1994:
And this is the official trailer of the remake in 2013:
