Developer 3D Realms showcased an E3-styled game conference on September 16 which featured many indie video game titles. The show will continue throughout the upcoming days containing more additional information on the games that were shown and featuring interviews.
Realms Deep generally presents trailers of retro-styled first-person shooter in the veins of id Software titles like Doom or Quake. For this year, they continue to do what they’re known for.
There was a gameplay showcasing of the critically acclaimed AMID EVIL’s new expansion called The Black Labyrinth. No release date was confirmed during the video.
WRATH: Aeon of Ruin has broken silence and updated its new release date to be Spring 2023 in its new trailer. The game was originally supposed to be release in 2021 from their roadmap.
An old Quake-styled game titled Chasm: The Rift has been remastered for Steam and GOG. Chasm: The Rift was originally released back on September 30, 1997, but the remastered edition is set to launch on October 10, 2022.
That was not the only previously released retro-styled shooter that got announced for a modern remastering. Rise of the Triad: Ludicrous Edition was announced which is a remastered version for the 1994’s Rise of The Triad.
The Ludicrous Edition will provide fans with new levels, a map editor, and will also come to consoles.
Despite being a conference targeted to fans of retro-styled shooters, there were a handful amount of non first-person shooter games that were featured.
The Unliving is an isometric action game that takes the player to controlling a necromancer. The player is able to take down enemies while controlling an army and cast spells.
Hover Muscle is an arcade racing game that lets the player drive through various and eye-catching race tracks. The game lives up to the name where the player is driving a hover-based car.
Realms Deep was originally presented in public in 2020, and has been happening every year since then.
During the first event, they managed to interview industry veterans like Tim Willits (Doom & Quake) and Cliff Bleszinki (Unreal Tournament & Gears of War).
