Help make Duke Nukem

Developer ad means it might not take forever
Wed May 23 2007, 13:30
THE CHAPS AT 3D Realms have caused a minor internet storm by posting a job listing for a programmer to work on its legendary title Duke Nukem Forever.

The job ad was accompanied by what has been confirmed to be a new piece of in-game rendering, namely, of a pig cop baring all. This is the first media of DNF we've seen for a long time, and is surely the most interesting thing to hit job listings boards in a while. At least in the last 24 hours or so.

You can see the picture in question here. The rendering of the chap looks very Unreal Engine 3-esque, which will surely lead to more speculation about exactly what technology DNF is using now. George Broussard, the public face of 3DRealms, said: "Just to head off any questions, [this is a] Real-time in game asset." So that's that cleared up then.

Duke Nukem's lifespan is really beyond a joke, and there's little that can be said here that hasn't already been said. Truly, its life is the stuff of which fables are made, and we're not quite sure what we'd do if we didn't have the game to mock. Heaven forbid it actually gets released, the world might implode. µ
