Killing Time, Uprising, and More!
Ziggurat Interactive has announced they have acquired the 3DO games catalog from Prism Entertainment, opening the door to bringing more than 30 classic video games to modern systems.
The announcement (made via a press release) states that many (if not most) of these games will be making their way to Steam and GOG.
"We’re very excited to announce our agreement with Prism Entertainment,” stated Ziggurat's Senior VP of Business Development Michael Devine. "One of our fundamental pillars as a publisher — and as fans of classic games ourselves — is to get titles that meant so much to so many, into the hands of gamers, both old and new. By bringing back games like Uprising and Requiem to digital stores, we’re helping make that happen."
Here area few titles picked up in the Ziggurat 3DO deal:
- Captain Quazar
- Killing Time
- Requiem: Avenging Angel
- Uprising: Join or Die
- Uprising: Lead and Destroy
- Wages of War: The Business of Battle
These are the only six games that have been confirmed thus far. Many of these titles had PC releases in the mid-to-late 90s, so conversion to modern systems shouldn't be as difficult as a straight port from the original 3DO coding.
When and Where Can You Get the Ziggurat 3DO Games?
There's not yet any info on Captain Quazar or Wages of War: The Business of Battle, but the rest of the games are available right now on Steam and GOG!
It should be noted that there is a price disparity for the same game in some cases depending on the digital storefront. Here's what you can get them:
Requiem: Avenging Angel
Uprising: Join or Die
Uprising: Lead and Destroy
More details will be released about the other games in the catalog (including the dozens that have not yet been announced) in the coming weeks. For now, you can learn more about what else Ziggurat has to offer at ziggurat.games.
