Danish investment firm, SDN Invest, has acquired Apogee Software, Ltd d/b/a 3D Realms (not to be confused with Apogee Software, LLC – publishers of Rise of the Triad) SDN Invest is part-owner and principal investor in Denmark-based game studio and Rise of the Triad developer, Interceptor Entertainment.

After intense negotiations between developer Flying Wild Hog and publisher Devolver Digitals shadowy Future Profits Division, the katana-filled and blood-soaked Shadow Warrior has been updated with an all-new and absolutely free Survival Mode. Budding katana masters will be able to slice, shoot, and crash through an incredible onslaught of raging enemies in three custom-built battle arenas in the games latest update.
Not content with just one super sweet update, Flying Wild Hog and Devolver Digital have partnered with Interceptor Entertainment and Apogee Software to bring some crossover magic to both Shadow Warrior and Rise of the Triad. Starting today, gamers will be able to use Rise of the Triads Excalibat as an alternative katana in Shadow Warrior and in turn step in to the shoes of Shadow Warriors Lo Wang in Rise of the Triads insane multiplayer modes.
Enjoy the free content, nerds, remarked Devolver Digital CFO Fork Parker. Dont forget my holiday cheer and festive giving of free stuff next year when I jack up prices on some face-melting indie games.
With the release of Rise of the Triad v1.3 – Interceptor Entertainment and Apogee Software have teamed up with Devolver Digital and Flying Wild Hog to add Shadow Warrior’s Lo Wang to Rise of the Triad to engage in ludicrous multiplayer with the H.U.N.T Team on San Nicolas Island!
Moreover, as a souvenir from his journey, Lo Wang will be bringing the legendary Excalibat from Rise of the Triad into Shadow Warrior starting today!
But wait, there’s more.
FIVE of the most popular custom maps from the Rise of the Triad community have been officially added to the game. The ROTT community is too based.
Developers Flying Wild Hog and Telltale Games, along with the closet zombies of Devolver Digital, are excited to announce an unprecedented cross promotion between Shadow Warrior and The Walking Dead. Starting today, Wang fans can wield the zombie slaying ice axe from The Walking Dead in Flying Wild Hog’s reimagined Shadow Warrior as an alternative to the iconic katana.
Independent developers RuneStorm (Viscera Cleanup Detail) and Flying Wild Hog (Shadow Warrior, Hard Reset) have been brought together via the Devolver Digital Cross Promotions Department to birth one of the more unique video game mash-ups ever – Viscera Cleanup Detail: Shadow Warrior. A free standalone mini-game, Viscera Cleanup Detail: Shadow Warrior takes place after Lo Wang’s first big katana battle against the yakuza in Shadow Warrior as a hapless janitor from Zilla Enterprises is tasked with cleaning up the bloody mess.
“When our team first saw Viscera Cleanup Detail on Steam Greenlight we absolutely loved with the idea of a person out there that had to clean up after big battles in FPS or horror games,” said Michal Szustak, Studio Head at Flying Wild Hog. “RuneStorm has done a tremendous job in taking a key scene from Shadow Warrior and recreating its aftermath to form a fun and hilariously frustrating mini-game using the Viscera Cleanup Detail mechanics.”
Budding viscera janitors will be able to use their custom mop, commercial grade plastic gloves, high tech viscera finder, and an industrial incinerator to clean up blood, guts, and the occasional dismembered arm. Plan your strategy wisely or risk tracking bloody footprints around your clean floors or knocking over a bucket of guts on what was previously a pristine flight of stairs! Perform your job skillfully and find yourself rewarded with two handsome achievements to hang in your locker.
“This clear exploitation of two talented independent developers is really a landmark moment in my career and I can’t wait to see the immense amount of personal wealth I stand to gain from this financially driven marketing stunt,” said Devolver Digital CFO Fork Parker. “Oh, Viscera Cleanup Detail: Shadow Warrior is free? In that case you can all eat my butt. Eat it right up.”
