Developer- and Publisher-specific Articles: Apogee Software
Apogee Software has reached deep into their archives and released the source code for the nearly 20-year-old first-person shooter Blake Stone: Planet Strike. Now that it’s part of the Apogee Throwback Pack, the studio hopes the rekindled interest in the series will lead to some new mods and total conversions. The source code can be downloaded in full here, but be warned: it’s just over 300kb.
The upcoming Unreal Engine 3-powered remake of Rise of the Triad from Interceptor Entertainment has been officially dated for July 31. Publisher Apogee Software also announced a new pre-order bonus for the $14.99 release, with early buyers receiving a four-game compilation dubbed the Apogee Throwback Pack for free. The set, normally $9.99, includes Rise of the Triad: Dark War, Extreme Rise of the Triad, Blake Stone: Aliens of Gold, and Blake Stone: Planet Strike. The deal is available on Apogee’s official site, GOG.com, Green Man Gaming, and Steam.
And out of left field comes an announcement from QuakeCon 2012 that Apogee will be resurrecting their 1995 first-person shooter Rise of the Triad. The Unreal Engine 3-powered update will be co-developed with Interceptor Entertainment and sport over 20 single-player levels, a multiplayer component, five playable characters, and a level builder with Steamworks support.
