When I saw this news, I experienced a huge feeling of nostalgia; I just knew I had to write it up. It's crazy how many times I saw the logo you now see on the side. Apogee has announced the launch of its new online store over at http://store.digitalriver.com/store/apogee.
Gamers can now buy some of Apogee's favorite legacy titles, including Duke Nukem 3D, Duke Nukem: Manhattan Project, and the Apogee Legacy Pack. The $20 Legacy Pack is a collection of classic Apogee games including, Duke Nukem 3D: Atomic Edition, Duke Nukem: Manhattan Project, Rise of the Triad: Dark War, Blake Stone: Aliens of Gold, and Blake Stone: Planet Strike.
This weekend, you can get $5.00 off the price by typing in the Coupon Code "Father" – the Father's Day special expires on Monday, June 20, 2011. Additionally, as a bonus for ordering the Legacy Pack, you will receive at no additional cost Extreme Rise of the Triad and the soundtrack to Duke Nukem: Critical Mass with 10 "ego-pumping" songs (Apogee's words, not mine).
Apogee was a pioneer in digital distribution 25 years ago, before the rise of the console. Commander Keen, one of the company's classics, is one of the reasons why I am a die-hard PC gamer, and always will be, rather than a console gamer.
"Apogee fostered young development teams creating a global audience through its digital distribution platform," Terry Nagy, Apogee's Chief Creative Officer, said in a statement. "Apogee will continue its tradition by providing a platform for new developers to access a global market...our online store being the first step in this direction."
