3D Realms Office History Part II
 

As you probably know, the offices of 3D Realms these days reside in Aalborg, Denmark. This is a relatively new development, as Interceptor bought the company known for such titles as Duke Nukem, Max Payne, Wolfenstein 3D, and many many others. We've decided to take a look back at the history of the offices that made up 3D Realms. We enlisted long timer Joe Siegler to write about this relatively unknown part of the company. This second part (of four) focuses on the longest serving offices, which operated from 1991 to 2002 out of the Broadway Blvd location.

Thanks! I was a bit worried it was too picture heavy.

A couple of those pics have never been seen before by the public anywhere.

Didn't Tom Hall keep a code list for Commander Keen in his office?

I remember George being over by a cop photo was used for a camera caption contest years ago. I seem to recall more pictures of it existing as well.

This picture from the article: https://static.3drealms.com/media/up...ire-burn-2.jpg

I dont know what was actually going on there, but I won the Camera Captioning Contest for this picture. I believe my entry was somewhere along the lines of "OH MY GOD! Screams of horror can be heard as [Name of Guy Here] demonstrates how the strippers should dance in Duke Nukem Forever."

I lived with my parents so I was most likely in high school when I won that, and didnt get to play DNF until I was married and had my own kid. Crazy.

Should be in http://legacy.3drealms.com/camera/ somewhere.
I submitted a few years ago, but never won.

Going thru the past entries, there was a few images that had yet to used for the contest, due to isssues or something.

All the old website stuff is still there. It's just replaced with legacy.3drealms.com as opposed to www.3drealms.com. So..

Yes. I scanned it some years ago, and the picture that is on Wikipedia for Standard Galactic Alphabet was put there by me from a scan of said paper.

If you look at the larger versions of all the pictures in order, there's captions that tell a story.
