Build-Engine Ion Maiden from 3D Realms Early Access

Early Access to Ion Maiden is now underway on Steam, offering the chance to party like it's 1996 with a new Build-engine shooter published by 3D Realms. This is a preview campaign, and GOG.com says it's also available there, but restricted to owners of the Bombshell Digital Deluxe Edition. Here's a reveal trailer and here's word from this announcement:
3D Realms is proud to bring back the Build engine, which powered Duke Nukem 3D, Blood, and Shadow Warrior, in all of its hand-crafted pixelated glory.

We’ve spent a lot of time tinkering under the hood to take advantage of new technology and techniques. Bigger levels, hundreds of new colors, and morphing maps that transform mid-level are all just a few of the advancements made to the engine.

Today we're releasing the ION MAIDEN in Early Access!

Early Access owners will be granted immediate access to an exclusive multi-hour preview campaign, which you can play RIGHT NOW!

This is a big moment for us - The first official 3D Realms IP to launch as a Build Engine FPS since Shadow Warrior.

Looks pretty good to me.

I for one would love to see more new games made with old engines like this. Build, Doom, Quake, Unreal 1, etc. There's just something about how the old games and engines were done that is more fun to me for some reason.
