Dave Oshry Talks Rise of the Triad

Here’s a conversation I had with my pal Dave Oshry, marketing director for the upcoming Rise of the Triad remake. Originally released in 1995, Rise of the Triad was a cult classic first-person shooter that was the victim of bad timing. It had its share of ardent fans, but being sandwiched by Doom II and Quake was…unfortunate. The great news is that Interceptor Entertainment is taking the fast and funky gameplay of Rise of the Triad and updating it with Unreal Engine 3 graphics. Learn more about the game as Oshry talks about:

  • Why gamers — new and old — should care about a Rise of the Triad remake
  • How Facebook and Skype played integral roles in making this game happen
  • A videogame journalist that called out Dave on this remake back in January
  • Reactions to the game’s unveiling at QuakeCon 2012
  • Why it’s being made with Unreal Engine 3

Obviously I’m biased because I like Dave, but I think we had a fun chat that’s worth listening to. He’s a charming and dynamic speaker…and I’ve never told him this, but he’s like the Zack Ryder of videogame marketers. Rise of the Triad was loads of fun back in the day and I can’t wait to play a modern version of this classic shooter. Check out the interview and let me know what you think (please!).
