Apogee Freeware

The 3D Realms Website has news that several old Apogee games are now being offered as freeware, stressing that this is being done with no promise of any sort of technical support, as these eight games are all from 1990 and earlier, and will probably require DOSBox and perhaps other finagling to get them running. The catalog of releases includes five games that are freeware for the first time, three games that are being re-released as freeware along with their GPL source code, and a bonus release of a Flash edition of Kingdom of Kroz II. Here's word on the freeware releases, including an in-joke for George "Broussad":
Hard to believe our first game is 22 years old now, but that's what was built out of Scott Miller's bedroom in Garland, Texas all those years ago. Here is a complete list of what is being released today:

    • Kroz - Our first ever game, a text adventure game by Scott Miller
    • Arctic Adventure - a CGA based scroller game by George Broussard
    • Dark Ages - an EGA based scroller game by Todd Replogle
    • Monuments of Mars - a CGA based scroller by Todd Replogle
    • Pharaoh's Tomb - a CGA based scroller game by George Broussad

We're also re-releasing some previously released freeware games.

    • Beyond the Titanic - Text based Infocom style adventure game by Scott Miller
    • Supernova - Text based Infocom style adventure game by Scott Miller
    • Word Whiz - A text based trivia game from Scott Miller

The reason we are re-releasing those is because they're being released with source code (under GPL). These were found when we were doing research into Kroz, which is also being released with source code, too!
