If there's one thing that everyone knows about Duke Nukem Forever
it's that the game's been in development forever
. Well, a good thirteen, fourteen years, at least.
Gearbox announced that they'd taken up the the development reigns back in September
, but they want to make sure that everyone who has worked on the game during its lengthy history is credited for their work. Seriously.
Duke Nukem Forever is legendary in its development cycle. Over the years, the game has been in the hands of several publishers and many developers have come through the doors at 3D Realms that may have contributed in some way to the game.
As the studio responsible for Duke Nukem Forever, it is our desire to recognise and acknowledge the people who have in some way been a part of the legacy and evolution of the game.
If you have at some point been involved with Duke Nukem Forever and would like to be considered for having an acknowledgement in the game, please let us know who you are and how you are associated with the game.
Thank you for your contributions to Duke Nukem Forever and for taking the time to let us know who you are and how you contributed.
