Duke Nukem Forever hits development milestone

Wednesday, 15th April 2009 15:29 GMT By Stephany Nunneley


3D Realms George Broussard said on Twitter today that a developmental milestone has been reached on the long-awaited Duke Nukem Forever.

According to the tweet, the firm has cleared off a large percentage of the game’s original goals – and Broussard likes the show “24″:

“71 more tasks to do and we started with probably 800-900.”


“Heading home. Got some music for the game and commented. Have a couple more things to close out tomorrow for milestone. 24 is on!!!”

While the information is still a bit esoteric, we can only hope it means we’re about to see something other than Christmas wallpaper from the game.

    Only once.

    They started on Quake 2 engine, then swapped to UT engine and kept the license for the updates for a while before just gradually writing all their own code from the UT base :P

    I’d love to see a documentary on the development of this, preferably in the style of the aforementioned 24.

    “in the years of the late century, a development team..”

    Are they really working on this game or is it all just a big hoax?
