Duke Nukem 3D Betas

Post by papillo »

Here these are the betas for the classic Duke Nukem 3D, one is a public beta called LameDuke, and the other is a leaked beta from a magazine previewer:

LameDuke:

"LameDuke was released on the 1st anniversary of the shareware release of Duke Nukem 3D. It was released purly for the fans' amusement. LameDuke carries a Duke Nukem II theme throughout the game and has countless little features that you can see how they developed into the final product a year afterwards. Beware, the game is unstable and might not work on your system."

DK3D leaked beta:

"This beta was leaked from a magazine previewer named Jim. You can see a message from George in the included text file. After this version was leaked, it is safe to say 3D Realms hasn't been sending out beta versions of games to magazines. There are some minor differences in this version, such as the message that rises up on the building in the 2nd level is different."

Enjoy!

Excellent Beta, though very unfinished.
The weapons swing way to fast and you can walk off the boundaries of the first level. Though very technological for its day.

Perhaps we can setup a section on BA for pics of betas? I think that would be quite interesting... Would you be willing to share your pic collection with beta for this kind of project?
