Duke Nukem 3D For OS X Released
7:40 AM | Conrad Quilty-Harper | Comment on this story

In an update to his .plan, do-it-all Mac/Linux programmer, Ryan Gordon, has released Duke Nukem 3D for MacOS X. After several months of juggling with half a dozen other projects including a OS X release of Postal 2, continual updates for Unreal Tournament 2003/2004 and America's Army, Ryan has finally released a public build for the OS X version of classic shoot 'em up, Duke Nukem.

From his .plan;

This package includes an installer that will install the game from either the PC "Atomic Edition" disc, or the MacSoft disc from the Mac Classic version of the game. If you don't have a retail disc, the installer can give you the free shareware episode.

3DRealms still sells the game off their website at (in fact, they recently did an updated print run, believe it or not). If you don't have it, this is the path of least resistance to a legitimate copy of the game. eBay is another option. Make sure you get the "Atomic Edition" if you buy a PC disc.

TCP/IP networking and an OSX version of the level editor are included, but are intentionally hidden. Use at your own risk. :)

Do not contact 3DRealms or MacSoft for tech support; they will not help you with this version of the game...but might.

To download the patch, which includes a free shareware episode of Duke Nukem 3D, please visit Note that you do not have to have the full retail CD to enjoy the shareware episode. Simply download the patch and install the shareware version of the game.
