The fact that they haven't released a single screenshot in the last five years or so leads me to believe that they are just out-and-out lying at this point.

Where are these people getting the funds to continue to develop this game? Did the last Duke Nukem make THAT much money?

Duke Nukem gets paid in babes. Duke has enough babes to be in development for another 20 years.

Broussard and Miller have ammassed a decent amount of money in the 80s and 90s. These two guys played a big role in the vidoegame industry in the last two decades. Apogee, back in the day, was a big publisher. Don't forget that they're also funding Remedy entertainment (Max Payne 1,2, Alan Wake) and probably they own a part of them, too.

Since Duke Nukem Forever is 3DRealms brainchild and they're devoting their own resources to develop it, there isn't any reason to poke fun at them. It's their money, after all. People should wait for the final product before judgeing.

Developer diary:

o Pentium 3 coding - Doh!
o Hardware accelerated rendering - Doh!
o DirectX6 - Doh!
o Windows 98 released - Doh!
o DirectX7 - Doh!
o TnL - Doh!
o DirectX8 - Doh!
o Vertex Shaders - Doh!
o 1024 res standard - Doh!
o DVD drives available - Doh!

o DirectX9 - Doh!
o 1280 res, Widescreens common - Doh!
o Pixel shaders - Doh!
o Windows Vista - Doh!
o Multi CPU - Doh!

They must spend all their time just updating their tech let alone making a game.

That seems pretty accurate to me.

I think the last time the game was actually "real" was in 2001, the year XP was released.

I wonder if itl actually show up next year in some form because of Vista...

naaa...

The List

I love this part.

Quote:
Things that have taken less time than Duke Nukem Forever's Development:
* The Wright brothers designed and flew the first airplane.
* The theory of General Relativity.
* The United States' entire program to put a man on the moon, from Kennedy's challenge to the landing.
