Deep Freeze is a big mod with its own storyline for Duke Nukem: Manhattan Project (DNMP). At the moment Deep Freeze is still in development. The Early Access version contains 4 levels of the main storyline of the mod (out of 10 planned), and also 17 separate maps from the alpha version. The DNMP level editor (PrismEd) and alpha maps are included with the mod.

Gearbox Software sues 3D Realms over the embattled Duke Nukem franchise

In 2010, 3D Realms sold the Duke Nukem IP to Gearbox, with assurances there were no copyright infringements in the series. Last September, though, Robert (“Bobby”) Prince, a composer and sound designer whose music has appeared in several classic games, including Wolfenstein 3D and Doom, sued Gearbox, alleging he owned the copyright on certain music that was included in 2016’s Duke Nukem 3D: 20th Anniversary World Tour, a remaster of the game’s most seminal title.

“Prince … asserts that the use of Prince’s music in earlier Duke Nukem video games published by 3D Realms was subject to a license agreement between Prince and 3D Realms,” the suit alleges. “Thus, contrary to the representations and warranties made by 3D Realms in the [asset purchase agreement], Prince alleges that Gearbox does not own the rights to certain music transferred to Gearbox.”

In addition to Apogee, the suit names co-founders Scott Miller and George Broussard as defendants. Neither Miller nor Broussard replied to Digital Trends’ request for comment about the complaint.

8 Bit Guy Visits Old 3D Realms Offices

About five and a half years ago, I (Yatta) visited the old 3D Realms buildings in Garland, Texas with my friend and former 3D Realms employee Charlie Wiederhold.

One of my favorite Youtube channels, The 8-Bit Guy just visited the same places alongside good ole Joe Siegler of 3D Realms.  This was such a bitter-sweat video for me to watch.  Every Duke fan should see it:
