Legendary Apogee Returns to Action
The publisher that pioneered episodic gaming and online distribution is back
Apogee is bringing the King of Action himself, Duke Nukem(TM) , to the handheld console market with three new missions, together called the Duke Nukem Trilogy(TM) . Apogee Software is producing the Trilogy under an exclusive license agreement with 3D Realms and MachineWorks Northwest LLC. The Trilogy is comprised of three episodes: Critical MassTM, Chain ReactionTM, and Proving GroundsTM.
"This marks a new beginning for a famous publisher with a history of market-making innovation," said Terry Nagy, co-founder and Chief Operating Officer of Apogee. "I can't think of a better character than Duke or a better franchise than the Trilogy to usher in a new era for Apogee."
"It's funny how what's old is new again in this industry," remarked Apogee co-founder, Scott Miller. "Many of the things Apogee pioneered are back in style, so it only makes sense to bring back Apogee and its properties with a visionary team that will once again create innovation for gamers around the world."
Apogee pioneered the shareware game revolution in 1987 by inventing the concept of game demos, distributed online, which advertised the remaining episodes in a series. Before this time, game demos and episodic releases were unheard of. These concepts created by Apogee have become mainstream today. Apogee's amazing history includes the original releases of Commander Keen(TM) (1990), Duke Nukem(TM) (1991), Wolfenstein 3-D(TM) (1992), Raptor(TM) (1993), and Rise of the Triad(TM) (1994), just to name a few.
