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:

Ardat Lilitu’s Duke Nukem Fan Comics

The comics are appropriately titled “Duke Nukem: Vengeance of a King.”  Ardat provides a synopsis of his comics as follows: Duke Nukem Forever was all just a nightmare. After the events of the first alien invasion, the EDF takes all the merits of Duke’s victories. This means that Duke, an outcast, has lost everything. General Graves has disappeared. After years the aliens are back for revenge but also for something else. Duke is alone and he has only Captain Dylan on his side. Even though the EDF still needs him, Duke doesn’t trust them anymore but the situation forces him to compromise–but he’ll do it his way.

The art style in Ardat’s comics is amazing, and we highly recommend checking them out while you find the best bonuses!  Click below to read the comics.

NBlood is a user-friendly and highly accurate port featuring multiplayer, software & OpenGL (Polymost) renderers, support for Redbook CD audio & accurate FM OPL3 (SB/AdLib) emulation, and DEF/HRP support.

NukeYKT has previously released NRedneck (Rednukem) – an open-source Redneck Rampage port based on EDuke32. Both NBlood and NRedneck come with the quality of life improvements you’d expect from EDuke32 including a modern control scheme and support for arbitrary resolutions and native widescreen.

Play Duke Nukem 3D From Your Internet Browser!

With the advent of HTML5, a lot of the classics have been popping up in browsers.  For instance, ClassicReload lets you play just about any DOS game inside of a browser-based emulator.  The problem, however, is that not all of the games on that website (including Duke) run too great or run with the correct keyboard and mouse setup.  That leaves you with just a few other choices: Play on original 1990s hardware, play offline on a modern PC with DOSBox emulation, hit up UK Casino Online, or play Duke3D on this website:

Duke Nukem 3D is one of my favorite game of all time, and now I modified it so that it can run in a browser. Click & Play! That simple! Google Chrome advised. QWERTY keyboard mapping.

[Play Browser Duke3D] [Discussion Thread]

For those still wondering, DOSBox is an emulator program which emulates an IBM PC compatible computer running a DOS operating system. Many IBM PC compatible graphics and sound cards are also emulated.  This means that original DOS programs (including PC games) are provided with an environment in which they can run correctly, even though the modern computers have dropped support for that old environment.  Getting something like DOSBox working inside a modern browser is a whole another level of cool, albeit Gawen might be running some sort of emulation program only similar to it.

Of course, none of this was possible before the advent of HTML 5, which has revolutionized what can be done in your Internet browser.  HTML 5 is the markup language used for structuring and presenting content on the World Wide Web. It is the fifth and current major version of the HTML standard, allowing for things like DOS emulation straight from your browser. Now that’s impressive!
