DUKE NUKEM FOREVER IS
GETTING BIGGER





Yes, that´s right. We are bigger than Jesus, Alah and Budda put togheter and to show you how true is that we´re putting here some subliminal message to get your votes:


So, yeah being this project released in April takes away some exposure at the time of the MOTY contest. We´ve got covered by most online gaming magazines, even actual paper magazines, radio shows and all kind of youtube channels, we even heard that in some country they built a bronze statue featuring me and Mikko raising Duke in our hands. But that´s long gone at this stage of the year. Yet, we wanted to let you know that work is still being done on it, not at the same pace it has been done prior its original release, and not even in a regular basis, but yes. We´re mostly evaluating how the subtle inclusion of some newer technologies would affect the classic oldschool feel of the mod. We´re not going to turn this into a modern looking thing but there are a few subtle touches that could bring even more life to it, and that´s where our (or at least mine) minds are right now.


In addition to that, the plans of including every single possible reference to the old media still stands. Work is being made to replicate all screenshots and video bits (the few ones that are left) so if there was a weapon or an enemy you didn´t see in our mod, just be patient, we´re going to eventually make something of it -even if it´s a blurry thing that lasted a split second, we saw it-. This will, of course, imply extra levels and therefore a longer and even more spectacular playtime.


What you sure as hell should do is voting for this mod if you really want that to happen, I mean you´re probably better off voting for some other crap out there, but chances are that if we win something with it, we´ll feel ultra motivated and get some help we´re needing (don´t offer your help, the kind of help we need is very specific and can come only from two or three people in this world).


Apart from that, a promise has to be made, and it´s that if the update goes by on rails, most of the sound (which was the less acclaimed department of this mod) is gonna be completely reworked.

ALWAYS BET ON DUKE!

Awesome! Just awesome.
Robo-cop styled mech? I'm deffinitely approving that!
Is that a Grey Alien at the panels on the chainsaw image? The bulbous head looks very similar.
Thumbs up from me guys! Keep it up! :D

Yeah, however the screenshot is from an older version of the official DNF game (apart from the unfinished chainsaw).

Aw what a pity. I love seeing classical Aliens in games and mods.
Still, can only guess the kinds of things they'll be including in their current works :)

VOTED VOTED VOTED!!!!!!!11!1! :P

Also, this project really deserves to be fully standalone, with the support of 3D Realms, Gearbox, or whoever holds the rights to The King.

Will we see more new monsters like for example Mutated Humans (civilians, indians (you can notice one in 2001 trailer) etc)?

lol you´re obsessed with mutated humans right? We may add them, maybe.

No, I just take them as example, because I forgot names of some other enemies. But I remembered few, like this non-mutated guys with glasses and red bands ( one of them is driving a car with duke in, and duke uses sniper rifle to kill one in 2001 trailer) and military ants (red and gray).

That´s Vasquez. A character parodying the woman with the Smart Gun in the Alien movie. The fact she is shown as a ally first (when driving the car) and as an enemy later (when being shot in the head) shows that it wasn´t clear what her role in the game was. I don´t want to spoil whatever we´re going to come up next. But then again, we want to met all spectations in regards to the old trailer references.

And yeah, its nice to see that you plan to do more updates and your mod is indeed awesome, but, dont you think about yourself way too much? Seriously, I have never seen that kind of high egocentrism, not all youtube channels featured your mod btw. And why do you call other mods "crap"? Well some mods are indeed crap, at least in my opinion, but mate, because you did something fantastic, doesnt mean you're on top of the world and everyone is so pathetic and needs to lick your boots. Maybe its just a joke though and I do not understand something, but seriously, you're not making yourself look better by acting like "Me and my mod are better than absolutely everyone and everything else".

It´s just part of the character. Duke is egocentric, we´re that way too just for the kicks.

Thanks for the support! We will win because our greatness is so great that the whole universe is too small for us. We make the gold look like **** and put on shame people like Chuck Norris, Leonel Messi and Saddam Hussein. In Ebay the mirrors we once passed by are now being sold for several thousand dollars. But the best of all is that we always keep our feet on the ground and are very humble guys :)

And thus, three years and NO UPDATE AT ALL.

Looks like this Is In development hell, unironically like the original DNF.

It's not in development hell since it was never in development in the first place. This news update (which I opposed) served no other purpose but to attract votes for the Mod of the Year contest. To be sure, we did have stuff PLANNED for a small update (mostly technical fixes) and good IDEAS, sketches and even some finished art for a POTENTIAL bigger update but we were never actively working on new maps or anything like that. The only thing here that's in development hell is Gambini's HL2 mod:)
