Link.

Screenshots look kinda generic - can this game keep up the legacy of a janky, over the top crazy shooter or will this be the next Duke Nukem Forever?

Personally I am shocked by the lack of dual wielding in the screenshots. Looks like its PC/Steam for now and will support mods using Steamworks (I assume Workshop).

Looks good but will be dissapointed if ludicrous gibs are not included.

Here's to hoping that it's called Rise of the Triads Rising.

This HAS to be good. I refuse to accept a world where it's not. I'm not asking for an amazing shooter here, just a batshit insane one with half decent gameplay.

And those gibs had better be LUDICROUS. You hear me, Apogee/Interceptor? I don't get passionate about remakes very often, but don't fuck up my ROTT.

Edit: Oh man, they have an option to play with the original sounds and soundtrack. So far, so good. Don't let me down, now.

I expect an achievement for getting the Bonus Bonus (getting all the different bonuses in the same level) - which was so difficult to get in the original game that the developers never tested it, and it wasn't confirmed to work until a player did it years after release.

Edit: Wonder how they're doing the music... The it was really energetic and melodic, a stark contrast to modern shooters, and one of the things that made the game so distinctive.

Apogee still exists? What the hell?

Yes, finally they remake the one game that everyone wants! As long as the God hand and Dog mode are still in it, I am happy.

It will never be as OTT and racist as the original so why bother?

Keep expectations in check, the last thing Interceptor tried to do was remake Duke3D which fell through, and the last two things the lead guy tried was a Sin remake (cancelled) and a Daikatana remake that he just stopped doing.

Also, the screenshots look just like the Wolfenstein that came out a few years ago.

Yeah =/ apparently the Apogee name was revived back in 2008.

I'm going to wait for HD versions of Secret Agent and Crystal Caves :o

#13 Posted by ShaggE (6422 posts) -

Okay, it's been half an hour since I heard the news... why is it not out yet!? *twitch*

@BlackLagoon: it said that players would have the option to use the original music and sound effects from the original game

Don't you jinx it! Don't you dare!

Edit: Trailer's up!

... It's just a bad trailer, right? Just a bad trailer... good games come from shitty trailers all the time. All the time. Every day. ... Right?

Fitting given how ROTT was supposed to be Wolfenstein sequel

Based off the few screenshots, definitely needs a dash of crazy added. Recently found this & good bit of history on the game with footage from Achievement Hunter:

Bulletstorm had bad trailers and was a good shooter. Probably depends on the price for this

Looks like the site is down. Trailer makes the game look kinda bad, but I like the updated music.

@mosdl: It's about time. Been bloody ages since that Jedi Knight 2 E3 reveal. Jedi Academy doesn't count, but even that was 2003.
