Duke Nukem Then and Now
Duke Nukem is 30 years old
How Duke Nukem looked like and how it is now:
Duke Nukem is a video game series named for its protagonist, Duke Nukem. Created by the company Apogee Software Ltd. (now 3D Realms) as a series of video games for IBM-compatible personal computers, the series expanded to games released for various consoles by third-party developers. The first two games in the main series were 2D platforms, while the later games have been a mix of first-person and third-person shooters.
During 2010 the rights of the series were acquired by Gearbox Software, who completed the development of Duke Nukem Forever and released it on 10 June 2011 in Europe and Australia and on 14 June 2011 in North America.
