Whee. Responding to my own news post, silly much?

Found some unconfirmed post from a 3D Realms programmer that the project isn’t dead. I’d take it with a grain of salt though:

The question is, should they just let it die?

Let’s hope they release something at least… an SDK or similar =P
It should be fun to play with that.

But anyways, it’s a sad loss, but time moves on.

This is sad, but I think Forever should be released, and stop there. RIP 3D Realms :(

It’s funny, but deep down inside I kinda already felt like this game would never see the light of day. No matter how long it took.

Isn’t this the reining joke of the video game world anyway? Something will change and it will come to life again I’m sure…Go Marlins!!!!

Come on, updating Duke Nukem as a modern day hero wasn’t exactly as extreme a make over as turning Adam West’s Batman into today’s Dark Knight. However that was a fairly gradual process and this is a radical sudden update. I was never convinced that the Duke could make the leap between eighties action hero, albeit a parody of one, to the flawed anti-hero popular today intact.

“It’s done when it’s done” — haha, they’re done first. Good ridance I say.
