Duke Nukem Forever has been in development for so long that the game has several versions on different engines.One of the highlights happened at E3 2001, where fresh footage was presented to the public for the first time in three years.Reviews of the trailer were encouraging, but officially this version of Duke Nukem Forever never saw the light of day.Maybe soon there will be a chance to touch the lost \"Duke\".On 4chan somebody representing the group x0r_jmp appeared and said that he has a playable build of Duke Nukem Forever 2001.As evidence anonymous posted gameplay video and screenshots (including some shots specifically at the request of the thread's readers).Building gameplay from x0r_jmp.Two more gameplay videos - apparently, from the same leak from 4chan.First video.Second video.About the build at his disposal x0r_jmp tell the following: In one form or another, there are almost all of the chapters of the story campaign.There is one huge chunk that is playable, and there is another huge chunk where the levels are laid out schematically and have no enemies.The build has all the content from the show for E3 2001.However, this is not the build itself from E3, but one of its preliminary iterations.All weapons work, except for the chainsaw and freezer.There are strippers in the build that you can interact with.In addition, they also have an interactive one-armed bandits, a mini game in the Dance Dance Revolution style and some other features in a similar spirit.x0r_jmp have two builds, but the content is only available in one.x0r_jmp plan to provide build fixes, but untouched files will also be available.Bild (along with editor, engine source code and instructions for compiling) plan to put in June.x0r_jmp sure that the modders will be able to finish this version and turn it into a real, finished game.Leaks with new frames from the 2001 build already happened.Anonyms in the thread write that then also promised to put the game online, but it never happened.As x0r_jmp assures, then the leak was arranged by completely different people.Screenshots from x0r_jmp and proof that this is not a fake - a shot in the background of the track from 4chan and a list of files.In the summer of 2017, 3D Realms boss Frederick Schreiber (Frederick Schreiber) said that he found the 2001 Duke Nukem Forever build - according to his estimates, the build was completed by 80-90% (although some colleagues believe that he exaggerates).According to Schreiber, there was a much darker and more serious tone to the game at the time than in the final version of 2011.There were borrowings from RPGs: hub locations, different quests, inventory with skips and keys.\"Something like Deus Ex Duke,\" Schreiber wrote.This version of Duke Nukem Forever continued to be modified throughout 2002, but in early 2003 the team switched to a new renderer with real-time Doom 3-style lighting and shadows.This meant they had to recreate all the materials from scratch, add diffusion, normal, and reflection maps to the assets, and re-create the lighting, Schreiber says.In 2006, the situation repeated itself, only now the developers were going to introduce more complex materials, increase the number of polygons in the characters, and so on.This version lived up to the release, along the way losing all the RPG elements from 2001: the final version of Duke Nukem Forever became a fairly standard linear shooter with the health regeneration and the limit of two guns at once, as dictated by the console fashion of the Xbox 360 era.Duke Nukem Forever trailer from E3 2001.The characters' faces seemed fantastically cool back then - they even had moving pupils and rippling hair!
