8 Bit Guy Visits Old 3D Realms Offices

About five and a half years ago, I (Yatta) visited the old 3D Realms buildings in Garland, Texas with my friend and former 3D Realms employee Charlie Wiederhold.

One of my favorite Youtube channels, The 8-Bit Guy just visited the same places alongside good ole Joe Siegler of 3D Realms.  This was such a bitter-sweat video for me to watch.  Every Duke fan should see it:

Duke Begins Footage

Former Gearbox employee Gregor Punchatz uploaded a demo reel video and in it you can find Duke Begins footage at 5:56 below; this is a CGI “proof of concept” from the mid-to-late 2000s.  Duke Begins was a cancelled video game proposed by developer Gearbox Software. Few details have been shared since its reveal in 2009, though its title carries the implication of a Duke Nukem origin story, illustrating how Duke became the person he is in chronologically later games.

Duke Nukem 3D Remake in Serious Sam 3 Engine

Community modder Syndroid is bringing Duke Nukem 3D back by using the Serious Sam 3 engine (SS Fusion 2017). Instead of creating new 3D models for his mod, Syndroid uses a mix of custom-made assets including models made by Tea Monster, as well as assets from the Hollywood Holocaust Rethinked mod, the  Duke Nukem 3D High Resolution Pack (HRP), and Duke Nukem Forever.  The combination of the recreated levels and remixed background music is quite lovely, and fans will surely enjoy it just as much as the Best Online Casino.

Thus far, Syndroid has recreated the four levels from the L.A. Meltdown Episode of Duke Nukem 3D, and he’s not done yet–his goal is to finish the remaining levels of the episode and perhaps include additional bonuses beyond that.

While Syndroid states that his main idea is to remake the classic Duke Nukem 3D experience inside of Serious Sam 3, some modern elements have been added to the mix. For instance, the levels have been expanded and occasional enemy waves and arena fights bring new elements to the familiar old settings fans grew up with.

Finally, what sets this mod apart is that this Duke Nukem 3D remake supports virtual reality (VR) and co-op gameplay thanks to integration into the Serious Sam framework:
