Realms Deep 2021 is going on right now, and 3D Realms has announced a new game called Cultic. Developed by Jason Smith, the game is inspired by the classic FPS Blood. Please take a look at the Cultic reveal trailer.

The game's developer Jason Smith has been tweeting about the project for some time, but today's announcement was the first time 3D Realms has put their stamp of approval on the project.

Boomer shooters are all the rage these days, and Blood-inspired Cultic looks pretty neat.

But wait, there's more! Cultic has a free demo available right now on Steam.

3D Realms was recently acquired by video game conglomerate Embracer Group, and it appears that today will be a celebration of their money hats. Tim Willits from Saber Interactive stopped by the stream to talk about the deal with fans, and he stressed that 3D Realms' current culture will remain. The personality and culture of the games will not change.

The Realms Deep 2021 livestream is still going on right now, so be sure to tune in to see more great trailers and developer interviews. New Blood Interactive's Dave Oshry stopped by the stream to announce that Dusk is not coming to Nintendo Switch just yet and that he is giving away a NVIDIA RTX 3080 GPU. What a swell guy!

      I so do not get retro games like this.

        This one goes a little too far, I think. Hopefully we can scale up the graphics just past the point where it stops hurting my eyes

        I do love replaying older games after a fresh coat of paint. The updated graphics mods for Blood and OG Shadow Warrior are still a blast.

        Yeah I never found the visuals or aesthetics of that era so sacrosanct that I want them recreated for eternity

      Tried the demo. Before you start it, you should disable the weird color filter that is enabled in the options. Shrug, it's okay, I guess. I'd be thrilled to play this in the 90's.

        You can disable that filter, thankfully.

        I usually hate stuff like this but I like it. But I don't pay much attention to color.
