Half-Baked Thought

 |  notes

Remember Hocus Pocus, Rise of the Triad, Monster Bash, Crystal Caves, Mystic Towers, … ? All these early nineties DOS games have something in common: the publisher, Apogee, and its legendary intro. Well, it seems that “Apogee is back”: https://www.apogeeent.com/devblog/apogeeisback
They released a showcase video — https://www.pcinvasion.com/apogee-scott-miller-indie-game-publishing/ — to whet us retro gamer’s appetite, possibly revealing more remakes are coming! Crystal Caves recently got the treat but I do feel very conflicted about the direction they took.
Should I be excited? Not sure.

On that same note: Hexen II’s spiritual successor, Graven, is available on early access: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ju3VLm1xs20
