Rise of The Triad for OS X
10:09 AM | Mike Apps | Comment on this story

A helpful forum poster recently reported that 3D Realms' classic shooter Rise of The Triad has been ported to OS X. This release comes only 11 days after the source code for the game was released. ROTT is a classic shooter in which players must to go to a remote island to stop an evil madman from killing millions of people. The game features dozens of single player missions, loads of different weapons, and modem and network multi-player for up to 11 players.

Here's the storyline of the game:

You are part of an elite group of operatives called HUNT (High-risk United Nations Taskforce), and you must stop a maniac cult leader from killing millions of people. While scouting a remote island, you are suddenly surrounded by enemy troops with guns blaring. In the distance you see your boat--your only chance to escape--explode into matchsticks. In front of you is a huge fortress monastery, and your only chance to stop the madness. You are e quipped with awesome, high-tech weaponry like heat-seeking missiles, split missiles, and the Flamewall cannon, which leaves a trail of charred skeletons in its wake. You'll also find magical instruments and weapons so incredible they defy description.
Although no requirements are listed for the OSX version, given that the game is 8 years old, it should run on any Mac that can run OSX. The links to the necessary download files can be found in the forum topic linked below. For more information on Rise of The Triad, follow the provided links.
