What happens when you get Cliff Bleszinski, John Romero, Tom Hall, Dave Taylor and more in a room? You get a great chance to look back at some of the best side-scrollers ever released on PC.
In what might be one of the best side promotions for a crowdfunding campaign, 3D Realms has put together a video looking at the history of sidescrollers. It’s a fantastic, quick look back at the history of some of the best side-scrollers on PC: Commander Keen, Abuse, Halloween Harry, Jazz Jackrabbit, and more.
It’s kind of crazy how many little snippets are part of this video, including this letter that Scott Mulliere sent to John Romero:
The video is all part of a promotion for Rad Rodgers, a 90’s style platformer from Interceptor Entertainment. The Danish developer was responsible for porting the original Duke Nukem games to Steam, as well as the Rise of the Triad remake that came out in 2013.
