Duke Nukem Forever Interview
10:07 AM | Michael Eilers | Comment on this story
While the name Duke Nukem Forever is beginning to seem more and more like an ironic jest, the game itself is actually supposed to be nearing completion. As this title is due to be published for the Mac OS some of you might be interested in an interview posted by German site Player.at which features Scott Miller of 3DRealms. Scott is as evasive as ever, even refusing to confirm or deny that the nefarious Dr. Proton (an antagonist from Duke's past) will be appearing in DNF.
However, mixed in with his slippery non-answers are a few tidbits of interest. He claims that "most of the fundamental coding is done and all the gameplay is falling into place," good news indeed for a game over three years in development. He also confirms that this title will feature Duke's signature sense of humor, and claims once again that "There’s absolutely no FPS game that comes close to the experience DNF will deliver. Nothing out right now even comes close."
Here's an excerpt:
You surely have done a bit of market research. Is the Duke still known among the young generation of players, or, because of his long absence from the PC-arena, is he just an idol for old veterans from Build-engine times?Check out the rest of the four-page interview for more details. As always, this game will be released when it is finished, and Miller refuses to even speculate as to when that will be. The interview is also accompanied by 20 screen shots from circa 1999.
Scott Miller: We’ve done no research, although we watch polls that game sites like Voodoo Extreme hold. And in VE’s very recent poll about game characters, Duke Nukem ranked as the number one game character by a wide margin, followed by Max Payne in the number two slot.
But even if Duke was an unknown, much as he was when Duke 3D came out, I still believe DNF would sell very well because of its high quality, innovate gameplay.
