There's a countdown on saveduke.com - is that newly there? If I'm not mistaken, it counts down to christmas 2011
I bet its going to be 4 hours!SomeBritishDude said:If this is a stunt it's not a very entertaining one. 3D realms have been doing this for so long that Duke Nukem isn't a greatly antisipaited game or a massive joke...It's just annoying and a little bit depressing.
If the game is released, who bets it will be less than 8 hours long?
Only if the game is ever friggin finished. If they pull this as a publicity stunt and it takes another 3-4 years for the game to be released, then they still suck.D_987 said:If it really is a publicity stunt, its probably the best in gaming history...
Also, I keep seeing articles saying the news of 3D Realms shutting down broke on the 7th, but Joystiq reported the rumor [http://www.joystiq.com/2009/05/06/rumor-duke-nukem-dev-3d-realms-shut-down/] on the 6th and Joe Siegler, the 3D Realms webmaster confirmed it [http://forums.3drealms.com/vb/showpost.php?p=867590&postcount=129] the same day. Granted the story wasn't 100% verified at that point, but there was enough there that a zealous fan could have jumped on the domain at that point, fearing that it would be gone if he waited for further confirmation.In the coming days, I plan to turn this site into a hub for all news, content, and fund raising activties for the Duke Nukem franchise. The ultimate goal behind the SaveDukeNukem Project is to acquire the Intellectual Property for the game and, hopefully, release it to the general public in the not so distant future. My initial thought was to take it Open Source - but I realize this may not help the employees of 3D Realms who worked so hard to bring the game this far. I will soon be taking feedback on what to do with the time and money donated to the project.
