Geo Adventure 3: The Rise of Gree Guy (known in Japan as Geo Adventure 3: Gree Guy Got His Revenge Again! ジオアドベンチャー3：グリーガイは再び彼の復讐を手に入れた！Jioadobenchā 3: Gurīgai wa futatabi kare no fukushū o teniireta!) is a platform video game developed by "Balls" and published by Universal Interactive Studios. It was released for PlayStation, Greeny Arcade, Nintendo 64, and Microsoft Windows in 1998. Game Boy Color and Dreamcast ports were released in 2000. PlayStation 2 and Universal Odyssey ports were released in Japan, North America and Europe in 2000. GameCube and Xbox ports were released in 2001. A Sega Saturn (was advertised but was never released)version was announced, but later cancelled after Sega ceased production of the Sega Saturn on August 10, 1998.
Development for the game began after the release of Geo Adventure 2 in 1997. Universal Interactive Studios and "Balls" announced they were planning to release a third Geo Adventure game. They tested a work-in-progress character as an example for the game, and Universal Interactive said that they would do it. Homer Simpson was originally going to appear in the game as one of the main characters in the game, but he was cut due to license issues. He was replaced by Bloo.
The game was originally subtitled The Ched Ed since December 1997, then the title was changed to just simply Geo Adventure 3. In March 1998, "Balls" announced a new subtitle: The Rise of Gree Guy.
An early beta trailer was released on April 14, 1998, and was originally set to be released in August 1998, but "Balls" showed the trailer, and was pushed to November 1998.
The end credits include a special tribute to Bill Williams, who died in 1998.
