Released on June 10, 2011 on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360, Duke Nukem Forever was a little disappointment at the time. Admittedly, we found ingredients that made the success of the license, but technically and side gameplay, everything already seemed exceeded. If the game seemed to rot at the bottom of the 2K Games catalog, the game is talking about him since a user on YouTube swung a video of more than 37 minutes which is none other than the prototype version of the game dated 2001. So this means that at the time, it was neither 2K Games nor Gearbox Software that were on the development of the game, but the 3D Realms studio, the original creators of the series. But production has experienced many setbacks, forcing the team to reboot the development several times. More than 20 years later, this prototype version which will not make anyone fantasize, since at the time, the 3D graphics were still very geometric and vague in its textures.
This leak at least had the merit of freeing certain words, notably that of Scott Miller, founder of 3D Realms, who took advantage of the situation to explain that there was squarely internal sabotage, which prevented their game of to go out. The opportunity for George Broussard, his partner at the time to swing his truth on Twitter by explaining that Scott Miller is a narcissistic incapable and that he is the cause of the trial between 3D Realms and Gearbox who made them lose the Duke license Nukem. Undattendent accounts that prove that bitterness is still in order and that the mess remains very present, even more than 20 years after the facts.
