A Twitter account for Apogee’s 1994 first-person shooter, Rise of the Triad, has been discovered. The bio for the account reads, “The world’s most ludicrous shooter has returned!” The obvious implication is that a new Rise of the Triad, or possibly a remake, is in the works.
The account follows two other Twitter users, namely Apogee Software and Interceptor Entertainment. Interceptor, as it turns out, employs one Joe Siegler, who just so happens to be a level designer from the original Rise of the Triad. As a Duke4.net forum-goer pointed out in June, Siegler’s bio states that he’s working on an “undisclosed project,” and that spilling the beans would “require the death of the whole world 30 years later by one of his descendants.” For those without incredible memories, that’s a direct reference to the bad ending of Rise of the Triad.
Rise of the Triad has popped up a few times in the last couple of years, being released on iPhone in 2010, followed by developer Apogee opening a new online store in 2011 to peddle its classics, including ROTT.
