3D Realms is back. The old Dallas-area company may now be owned by Danish developer Interceptor Entertainment, but its old-school catalog is still "locally grown," as it were. If you want to dive into a bunch of their old computer games -- either for nostalgia or as a newcomer -- you can do that with the 3D Realms Anthology, which just hit Steam today for PC and Mac (it's been available in a non-Steam format directly from 3D Realms for awhile now).

For $39.99 (or the current sale price of $29.99) you get 32 games, all of which have been tinkered with in order to get them working on modern hardware.

The company has had a crazy history that's impossible to recap quickly (there's a book waiting to be written there, I'm sure), but it started out in Garland in the late 80′s under the name Apogee Software and was a pretty huge name in the early days of PC gaming. You're probably most likely to know them as the people behind the Duke Nukem series, the earliest exploits of which are included in this package.
