One of my favorite games of all time, Duke Nukem 3D had me waiting “forever”, for DNF (Duke Nukem Forever). Then in May 2009 the wait finally ended, when the DNF team got axed. And the game was then kicked into the back burner of Apogee. I think the fans of Duke deserve better, we waited 13 years for the game and in the end it was all in vein.
I think it is time to make DNF Open Source and let the community and fans develop it, and I am pretty sure it won’t take that long for the game to be completed. The Open Source guys have done it in the past by developing the High Resolution Pack for Duke Nukem 3D, and I am sure they can do it again.
I’ll end this entry with my favorite dialog from DN3D: “it’s time to kick ass and chew bubble gum, and I’m all outta gum.”
