It’s been a few months since we last got to talk about Interceptor Games’ upcoming reboot of Apogee Software’s 1994 FPS classic, Rise of the Triad. Today we are happy to report that it has been confirmed in the latest Rise of the Triad Production Diary that the game’s original composer, Lee Jackson, is returning in an advisory role to assist Interceptor’s own Andrew Hulshult in producing the tunes for the game.
Fans of early ’90s PC shooters will best remember Jackson as the man responsible for the music powering the carnage in such games as Duke Nukem 3D and its numerous expansions, Shadow Warrior, and, of course, Rise of the Triad. Most recently Jackson was credited with the ill-received but undeniably old-school, Duke Nukem: Forever.
Needless to say, Jackson’s assistance with crafting the tunes to this unapologeticly old school remake will ensure the flavor of the title’s soundtrack will remain true to the original ROTT recipe.
Rise of the Triad is due to be released sometime this Summer.
