"We decided here in the last year to resurrect and relaunch Apogee, to kind of reclaim our title as the original indie publisher," Miller says. "We're working with indie developers again and cherry picking what we think are the diamonds in the rough. And there are a lot of diamonds out there."

...

The first of those projects to be announced is Residual from Orangepixel, set for release this fall.

Residual is going the give pixel art haters a heart attack,

I like what they are doing, but Apogee seems to want to be the next Humble Games. I can admire that, but so many publishers out there today digging out indie diamonds.

Tough market.

OMG best news of the month!!!
Now please, please bring back Bullfrog, Westwood Studios and Blizzard North!

Don't care about the pixels, if the game is good it will sell.
This has already been proven many, many times.

Bullfrog's
Best games - Syndicate/Wars and Dungeon keeper (But we have DK3 so we cool) Would love a new Syndicate hopefully The Ascent will scratch that itch.
Westwood
Gave me C&C, and we more than killed that formula by overdoing it. So Pass.
Blizzard North
Owners and some staff formed Runic Games that gave me Torchlight 1/2. The others where ate up by Blizz/Activision who gave us Diablo 3, It was not 2 but wasn't to bad either.
Runic ended in 2017? and some dev's formed Monster Squad Games. Still waiting to see what they will roll out.

Best old school pixel game and a must is Bro force. I would love a revisit to Commander Keen's world.

Crystal caves was my jam. I could never get very far though.
There's a HD remake on Steam if you're interested in giving it another shot:

It's not very good though.

It's pretty meh


But then again, having played the original syndicate recently without my nostalgia glasses on, that was pretty meh as well.

Bullfrog's best game was Theme Hospital and we already got a spiritual successor to that.

Played it, for some unknown reason it did not really grab me?

You take that back!

In point of FACT that would be Dungeon Keeper.

Agreed and I loved both recent, Dungeon Keeper 3 & War for the Overworld

Still need to Play Evil Genius 2, maybe this weekend.
