Rise of the Triad editor takes players back to 1994

New, 1 comment

Interceptor has released a walkthrough video of its editor for Rise of the Triad, which allows modders to create their own versions of the 1994 original.

Due to be released after the game goes on sale at the end of this month, the 'Ludicrous Development Kit' (named after then original game's highest gore setting) features assets from the 1994 release with a drag-and-drop editor.

"We've made a set of assets that correspond one-to-one with those in the original Rise of the Triad," said level designer Leon Zawada. "It's really straightforward and it looks great too. We have everything in there including some stuff that was never used in the original."

Rise of the Triad from Interceptor is a remake of the 1990s over-the-top shooter from Apogee, due to launch on July 31. The game features absurd weapons that celebrate and lampoon the most gratuitous aspects of 1990s shooters.

"It's so much fun to play around with," said CEO Frederik Schreiber, referring to the editor. "You can create single-player campaigns, multiplayer levels. All the textures are basically as they were in the old DOS days. I can't wait to see what people come up with when they play around with this. For old-school ROTTers, this is an extremely easy way to recreate the levels."
