3d Realms, which announced the still unreleased Duke Nukem Forever in 1997, is closing its doors effective tomorrow.
The game became a bad joke little more than a third into its development cycle. While other games have gained reputations almost as legendary for vaporware, they were released. Neither Daikatana, now vanished in obscurity, nor Team Fortress II, which proved to be a fine game and still has quite a following, could touch Duke Nukem.
Hail to the king, baby!
