The name 3D Realms was initially created as a branding label in July 1994 for use by Apogee which would be dedicated to just 3D games (as Apogee was then known for several styles of games). However, shortly after this, 3D games started to dominate the industry, and Apogee decided to direct their focus on this style of game, and as such, the Apogee name was eventually abandoned as a public marketing name in late 1996. While the company is now known as '3D Realms', the legal name of the company is still Apogee Software, Ltd.

Apogee Software were responsible for developing and publishing titles such as Commander Keen, Rise of the Triad, Duke Nukem, Wolfenstein 3d and last was Stargunner in 1996.
