Just let there be a power-up that turns me into a dog again. Also they better bring back the robots.

I only played the "shareware" version of the game. It was light on story, so I never knew what the full game was about....nor I would assume... did the back-story line up with the early 90s art or game play in all likelihood.

What game I really want re-made...for no real good reason is PowerSlave. I just liked the Egyptian aesthetic I guess, because I don't recall it did much special.

"Press Release Includes The Word "Ludicrous" Twice"... and it's more than justified. Also, this reignites my hope for Hocus Pocus II.

Sweet god yes

This looks awesome. Duke Nukem Forever did the mistake of turning into a modern FPS with lots of hiding behind stuff and only coming out from cover to fire a few shots. This looks like it's sticking to the incredibly fast paced crazy gameplay, with lots of explosions and jumping around like a maniac and that's awesome.

Agreed 100%. Doom 3 and Duke 4 forgot their roots, their very cornerstone run and gun heritage. Triad had better not follow the same path.

I'm super excited about this!

Never played it. Looks like some Serious Sam-esque dumb fun.

Rise of the Triads was one of those unknown yet bleeding edge FPS games in that era. It was the first game I came across that featured dual wielding as well as environmental damage. I'm not surprised companies are digging into the toy box for those obscure games but I didn't think they'd pull out this one.

This is awesome! I still have my original ROTT cd somewhere lol.

ROTT was and still is a great game.

Doug Wendt will be pleased.

Sounds like a new Soldier of Fortune. Epic.

A buddy of mine went to QuakeCon and played it. He's an oldschool gamer too. He said the MP was authentic to the RoTT experience and the screenshots seem to indicate this too.

Now, all I wanta is some Wang.

Not sure what's more surprising, Apogee still existing or the fact that some people still care about RotT.. or even the fact that they're bringing it back!
