Turning 20 in 2017

Time to read: <1 minute

I worked on many titles in my years at Apogee/3D Realms.  As I age, I realize things are getting old.  I looked over the release list for 1997, and noticed that several titles (a couple of them notable) will turn 20 years old this year.   I don’t think I’ll do huge history pieces on all of them, but I’ll definitely say something for sure on at least the first and last ones on the list.  :)

This is what turns 20 in 2017:

  • May 13th – Shadow Warrior
  • May 25th – Duke Nukem 3D Mac
  • Nov 16th – Duke Nukem 64
  • Dec 8th – Duke Nukem: Total Meltdown
  • Dec 12th – Balls of Steel

It just feels like yesterday when I wrote the 20th anniversary article for the original Rise of the Triad.  Duke Nukem 3D turned 20 last year.   I turn 52 later this year.  Where’s time going, dammit?
