games from Apogee

Pick of the (short so far) list beying Duke Nukem 3D. Which i’ll put on my “possible coverage” list. Despite being technically inferior I always thought it was a superior experience to Quake. More fun, more of a sense of character and “real-world” locations.

The rest of the list is only of moderate interest tho. Blake Stone is basically a sci-fi Wolf3d; playing the free shareware version would be enough unless you’re really hardcore. And I don’t recall the Doom-era Rise of the Triad being all that inspiring.

What might be tempting is a compilation of their 2D stuff – Raptor, Cosmo’s Cosmic Adventure, Commander Keen. Well ok we can get that last one off Steam, but I know some folks prefer the GoG approach.
