Hail to the King Baby: 3DRealms sends Duke Nukem Forever to retirement.

By now you’ve probably heard that 3D Realms has unfortunately decided to shut its doors. Duke was getting ready to Kick Ass & chew bubble gum, but it seems he’s all outta gum :(

If you grew up with Secret Agent, Commander Keen, Wolf3D, Doom, Duke and moved onto Duke 3D (and quite possible Dark Forces) you’ll know why Duke Nukem had a huge fanbase. It was an epic engine that blew away the Doom’ers that was powered by The Build engine (written by Ken Silverman – who’s also born on 1st November – w00!).

So heres some images and videos from what would have been – as you will be able to see, one kick-ass games to come out (12 years in the making). Beats waiting for DrDre’s Detox comeback album.
