Apogee is slashing the price on its 2013 throwback shooter, Rise of the Triad. The game is currently discounted on Steam to $ 2.99, an 80 percent savings.
Rise of the Triad is a callback to the days of rocket jumping, blindingly fast circle strafing, and days when it was still weird to have baseball bats with eyeballs in them as a weapon of destruction. There’s a healthy community creating multiplayer levels, including some with the original tileset.
The temporary price cut, which expires at 10 a.m. Pacific / 1 p.m. Eastern tomorrow, celebrates the release of the game’s soundtrack. You can purchase that for $ 6.99 on its own Steam page. There you can also listen to samples of the game's tunes.
