And by extension, ID software/3D realms, anyone who wants it should make dumps of their legacy software they have here:

https://legacy.3drealms.com/downloads.html

Just in case M$ decide that they don't want to be bothered with that anymore.

they have nothing to do with apogee/Interceptor3drealms

I stand partially corrected. Bethesda own Id sofware which has several Apogee titles in it, however Apogee itself seems to be 3D realms, which has purchased various ID software IPs over the years.

Either way, with the potential legal limbo possibly about to appear, it's worth taking 10 minutes to dump the files for safety.

You know Apogee only *published* Keen/Wolf3d in 1991/1992, right? They were subsequently published by FormGen, GT, activision, etc. Apogee/ID were rivals since 1993. On the other hand, this.

As for your panic plan... that's already been done 11 years ago. id is also covered (their FTP closed years ago).
