I worked on many titles in my years at Apogee/3D Realms. As I age, I realize things are getting old. I looked over the release list for 1997, and noticed that several titles (a couple of them notable) will turn 20 years old this year. I don’t think I’ll do huge history pieces on all of them, but I’ll definitely say something for sure on at least the first and last ones on the list. :)
This is what turns 20 in 2017:
- May 13th – Shadow Warrior
- May 25th – Duke Nukem 3D Mac
- Nov 16th – Duke Nukem 64
- Dec 8th – Duke Nukem: Total Meltdown
- Dec 12th – Balls of Steel
It just feels like yesterday when I wrote the 20th anniversary article for the original Rise of the Triad. Duke Nukem 3D turned 20 last year. I turn 52 later this year. Where’s time going, dammit?
