DNF Demo Reel

Category: DNF

UPDATE: at the bottom of this news post you'll find some information about the video and DNF in general.

demoreel.jpg It appears a demo reel from Duke Nukem Forever has leaked recently from Bryan Brewer's site ( It contains gameplay footage from numerous levels as well as some animations of the enemies. There are also new one liners from Jon St. John, the Duke himself.

Jesus Christ it's awesome guys... If this game is not going to be released ever I'm going to be so depressed. Grab it from one of these places: (Thanks for the mirror Ramen4ever) (The Dukenator) (zchri9) (Pazurek) (Michael)


Thanks go to zchri9 for bringing it to our attention.


Cubeblue (pretty much confirmed as a reliable source) from shacknews comments has posted some information regarding the above footage. Here goes:

I can confirm that there was far more completed than what this video implies.

The guy obviously stripped away details in some of the video to highlight the motion and animations.

I've played a good bit of the game, my bro worked there. That scene with the big alien in the football field? That's the first level, it's Duke playing an arcade version of Duke 3D inside his huge Duke mansion. This was last summer and I saw four different levels and environments that were fully playable (some just needed some polish).

They basically started making the game again from scratch (as they've done a few times) about a year and a half ago.

They had a hard cut-off date for development (11/2009) and a ship date (4/2010). They were stupid close to actually finishing this thing.

Was it going to be worth 12 years wait? Of course not. But it looked like a solid offering from a studio that had spent 2.5 years working on a title.

And more about the stadium bit:
It's quite ingenious actually. So you start the game playing with this moderate level of tech and play for a few minutes and it's cool, then you zoom out of the arcade screen entirely and you're Duke and everything looks a little shinier and nicer, now you're in the actual game world and it's even more impressive. It's a really cool effect.

/sob,sob\ No ones giving me credit for releasing it early

yossa | 09 May : 23:24 DNF Demo Reel
I just woke up, didn't know it was you who found it. You're credited now. For some reason it shows only on mainpage for me and not in the comments.

I WANT this game...

zchri9 | 09 May : 23:30 DNF Demo Reel
I WANT this game as well.

I leaked it, didnt you go through the thread?

yossa | 09 May : 23:32 DNF Demo Reel
Nope, the link got to me before I had time to read the forums.

zchri9 | 09 May : 23:51 DNF Demo Reel
The Rapidshare link is uploaded by me aswell.

Yossa: The reason it's not showing up in comments is because the website caches data to speed up load times.

Clearing the cache manually in the admin area immediately fixes the problem.

Oooooo My God!!! I want this game NOW. This is the worst tease ever. If we never get to play this game it will be a shame that such greatness was wasted. Looks like it would have Rocked Our Faces OFF!!

zchri9 | 10 May : 01:49 DNF Demo Reel
You have me to blame for the tease and video

RedSplat | 10 May : 02:42 DNF Demo Reel
Looks like it could have been the best action game ever.

Apparently not worth another 5 million.

3D Realms got screwed over by asinine cowards.

Guys, if you wonder if cubeblue is for real, don't. I KNOW for a 100% fact that his brother did indeed work on DNF.

So here is my reaction to that fact: HOLY FUCKING SHIT.

makes it a little more credible in my book, looks like he just had to comment knowing there was BS being spewed.

Mark | 23 Oct : 14:31 DNF Demo Reel
