Rise of the Triad Goodies Pack Released

Ten years ago this week, we were right in the middle of shipping the registered version of Rise of the Triad. In fact, this Thursday marks the actual 10 year anniversary of the completion of the first registered version of the game (v1.2). To commemorate this anniversary, we're releasing the "Rise of the Triad Goodies Pack".

This download contains all the files that are in the \goodies directory on the registered Rise of the Triad CD-ROM. It contains maps, utilities, levels, all kinds of coolness for Rise of the Triad fans. Some of the files contained in here are not usable with the shareware version of the game, and require the registered version.

The registered version of the game is currently available in our online store, and if you put together the download from our online store coupled with this goodies file, you have about 95% of the content of the entire Rise of the Triad CD, and 100% of the ROTT Content on said CD. The remainder of the content was other Apogee/3DR Shareware games and information.

With the release of the ROTT Goodies Pack, this now means we have released everything we have ROTT materials wise online, except for the registered game itself. Some of the things in the goodies pack require the registered version of Rise of the Triad, which we still sell in our online store as a downloadable file (it is not currently available on CD).

We hope you enjoy this release of ROTT Goodies! If you're interested in Rise of the Triad, you can get more information on the game here.

Finally, there's something else we should mention. Awhile back we released the source code to Rise of the Triad, and someone has put together a Windows version of the game called "WinROTT". It's a work in progress port of the game to Windows, and you can check it out with the link above. Please note that Apogee/3D Realms has nothing to do with this file, and can't help with it, but thought some folks might want to check it out.
