Wow!! Now that 3D Realms are finishing up on their awesome retro Build Engine game Iron Maiden they’ve now announced something even crazier!! They’re now making a new game called WRATH: Aeon of Ruin in their old 90s rival’s engine, the Quake 1 engine!!! If we jumped in a time machine, went back to 1996ish and told the 3D Realms Duke Nukem 3D devs that they’d be making a game in their rival’s (ID Software) Quake 1 engine 22 years later they’d look at us like we’re mad haha!
WRATH: Aeon of Ruin looks very cool and filled with lots of oldschool goodness. Like with Iron Maiden it looks like they’ve updated the engine to better user modern hardware allowing them to push the 90s engine to far greater limits than the old days. Saw some dudes on youtube commenting about how they’re going to run the game on their original Voodoo cards. Ha! They’d probably explode haha!
Next thing you know 3D Realms will make a new game in the Doom engine haha!!
