Rise of the Triad profitable in just one week

Sunday, 11th August 2013 23:58 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Rise of the Triad sales pushed the remake into profitability in its first week on sale.

The news comes via Interceptor Entertainment’s marketing director, former games writer Dave Oshry.

“Interceptor set out to create a specific game for a specific audience on day one,” Oshry told Gamefront.

“We knew that if we kept costs down and delivered what we promised through the right distribution channels for that audience, we’d be successful.

Steam, GOG and Green Man Gaming have been amazing partners for Interceptor and Apogee, and we can’t thank them enough for helping us to get ROTT out there so much so that we turned a profit in week one.”

Rise of the Triad is a modern remake of the 1994 classic of the same game, which first released via shareware. Created at Apogee Software by a group of former 3D Realms staffers, it’s considered a poster boy for 1990′s shooters. The remake dropped at the end of July.

    WTF are you talking about?

    Granted, MP is a bit lame and tries to hard to emulate Quake 3 but singleplayer is both fun and faithful to the original ROTT (Superb early FPS).

    This is what I love about the digital age. No stupid publishers dictating what they think is ‘right’ but an open platform for small indies to sell something that the players clearly like and pay for.

    Excellent news indeed.

    Glad they made it to profit!

    ROTT (original AND remake) is just an amazing game. Any young kid hating on it is just showing his/her age and missing the point.

    No hand-holding for you, son. Return to CoD and stop messing with grown up’s games.

    Welp, I see #1 making a public proclamation that he’s angry at anything different and/or outside of his comfort zone. I don’t think he did anything there other than devalue his own intelligence by proving himself to be of limited taste. There’ll always be people like that, though. Hakuna matata.

    Yeah, Rise of the Triad was pretty much an old shooter, but it was also pretty much a fantastic game because of it.

    My sentiments exactly. I’d love to see shooters which require some semblance of skill and tactics again. Rather than everything being about finding that “perfect sniping spot” which everyone moves very slowly towards. :I

    More ROTT. Definitely more of that sort of thing.
