And that’s not a reference to a typical Triad diet!
Just in time for Halloween, Frank Martinaux of NO RISC – NO FUN, released an update to his port of Rise of the Triad. Version 1.5 of the port sees the game now fully working (and very fast) on the Raspberry Pi.
Originally released by Apogee Software (3D Realms) in 1995, the game was available for MS DOS based PCs, and started out intended as a sequel to Wolfenstein 3D from id Software. The original plan was to use the Wolfenstein 3D code, but with new level designs, characters and graphics – but that plan changed, and the project evolved into something more, with the final game using a much improved version of the Wolfenstein 3D engine, including enhancements that first appeared in the Rise of the Triad game, and which we now take for granted in first person shooters.
