Scott Miller: 3D Realms' "Future is Fine"

'20 Years Of Evolution - Scott Miller And 3D Realms' on Gamasutra chats with the Apogee/3D Realms cofounder about the recently formed Radar Group, his history in the gaming industry, 3D Realms, and more. Scott overcomes his reluctance to discuss his pivotal role in the shareware revolution, as well as other old school topics like BBSes, the early days working with id, and more. Scott also confirms that the whole Duke Nukem Forever team has been laid off, but that he cannot discuss the status of the game because of pending legal actions. As for the future:
Our future is fine. We have, I think at last count, 11 or 12 projects in the works. One of them is coming out next week. Another one is coming out in about six weeks. Both of those are on the iPhone. We have some major games in production still. So we're fine. That's not an issue at all.

I miss the BBSing days sometimes. Used to co-run one with a good buddy out in Vancouver back in the day - Stonehenge BBS. A lot of those door games (LORD, TW, et al). were awesome. And the precursor to the net with mail systems like FIDOnet and such.

Yeah, I used to play those old BBS door games. Even if they were simple, they were the original MMOs, or MUDs at least. I remember FIDOnet too. In the US they also had this pre-internet modem gaming network for games like Doom and Duke Nukem, I can't remember the name of it.

I still miss that dialing/connect sound sometimes. Actually, I'd love to have that as ringtone for my cell, that'd be sweet!

There are sites for making your own ringtones apparently, I'm not sure how legit they are. Here's a modem connect sample you can edit and use:
