Duke Nukem Forever Level Shots, Concepts Emerge

A number of images from now-closed developer 3D Realms' shooter Duke Nukem Forever have been posted by former employees of the company today. Chief among them are screenshots of DNF levels--apparently of the EDF base and an infested Hoover Dam--featured on the blog of former 3DR art director Tramell Isaac, seen above.

Concept art from artist Layne Johnson has also been added to his personal blog, showing more of the Aliens-inspired theme, in addition to enemy and weapon concepts.

Warning: gallery contains some Not Work Safe material.

        He said "someone". It's still possible the game could be picked up and finished.

            You're assuming two things:
            1) The game actually exists as more than some pre-rendered levels and character models
            2) It's actually playable

            Strange as it might sound, I'm doubting either one.

      Dunno, seems pretty generic to me. I think people wanted this to succeed or at least come out so badly they have given it a "heavenly" status.

      I'm with you, seeing these shots makes 3DR's closing that much more painful. :(
