I am looking to collect Apogee/3D Realms Mail Order Games. I have found 2 so far (Blake Stone Aliens Of Gold and Rise Of The Triad) within about the span of 2 years. Every time I search on eBay nothing comes up apart from retail versions. Why are these Games almost impossible to find? Thanks. Ted
Have you looked at https://3drealms.com/catalog/ ?
What do you mean by "mail order games", specifically? I'm a little unclear what PRECISELY you are after here.
Interested in the 3D Realms one.
You mean these things? If so, it might be that we haven't produced any in over 20 years, and most people probably didn't hang on to them.
That's really cool.
Right now I'm trying to find a boxed version of Death Rally. it was by far my favorite game out of 3DRealms. I still have the jewel case version I ordered back in the late 90's.
Reading up on Death Rally's history, the original game was released as freeware, before being republished on steam. The remake expands the original game.
And came across http://legacy.3drealms.com/rally/
I don't think we ever released the original Death Rally as freeware.
The DOS version of Death Rally wasn't released as freeware, but the Windows version was.
3DR didn't have anything to do with the Windows version though - Remedy handled that on their own.
Those classic Apogee boxes were amazing.
Has anyone here got some of these mail order boxed games for sale? I can't find them anywhere on eBay, it's probably that the collector's don't want to sell there games. Thanks.
