Getting all Apogee/3DR games on CD
I would like to get a CD with EVERY GAME Apogee and 3DRealms has ever put out. Is there such a thing? If there isn't now, can there be?

Why not just all the games that were released under the Apogee name? I'd buy that for a maximum of $100 in a heartbeat. Gamer's nostalgia, I guess.

Okay, so no CD. How about making more games (read : Extreme ROTT) downloadable thru Digital River ? Unless you guys release a game with a 400 page manual I'll be okay.

That's not going to happen for two reasons.

1) Cost. We have about 40 games total in the company history, and to put them ALL on a single CD, we'd have to price at a point where it'd be worth our while to do it. Point being is that most of our games still sell at the prices they're set for, and if we bundle them all together on one CD, people will buy that. If these things didn't sell at all, it might be worth it to generate extra income.

2) The real reason this will never happen. Pirate's Haven. Besides, several of our games require the CD to be in the drive to be run, and there's not enough room on a single CD to put all of these games (with their cd check code) on a single CD.

Re: Getting all Apogee/3DR games on CD
That would be a cool idea. Instead of ALL the games, why don't they put all the classic ones (like Paganitzu, Keen, etc) on one CD. With all the new games like Tomb Raider, Quake 2, they won't be very popular. And pirate haven? Well, that could happen anyway! Games don't have to be on a CD for them to be copied. If you ask me they're a lot more vulnerable to pirates on disk. EVERY computer has a 3.5 disk drive (except the Imac, if you call that a computer) so they could be copied much more easily on disk. Maybe if you encoded all the game executables into one menu program so it would be impossible to get the exe or com files out? Major hacking would have to be required if the pirates _STILL_ want to copy them. -Hoborg

...Or maybe even enclose a password-protected install executable on a floppy that would be required to extract the game executables on the CD as hoborg suggested. That way it would be easy to have a different password for each user/purchaser..

Re: Getting all Apogee/3DR games on CD
TerminX - as far as Apogee goes, nothing new on this. But I did get the id Anthology the other day. The "Book of id" has four CDs of everything they did. But thiat is off-topic here so I will leave it at that.
