3d Realms developed the DOS science fiction shooter game Duke Nukem 3D in 1996.
Duke Nukem 3D is currently protected, runs on DOS and can be played in a 1st person, 3D perspective both in single player mode and multiplayer by up to 8 players.
"It's the ultimate game for unleashing all your pent-up aggression. It is the most astonishing game we've laid our eyes on for ages! In fact, it makes pretty much every PC game we've ever seen - "Doom" included - like slightly dull. Honestly!" - PC Gamer review
"Duke Nukem is not really revolutionary, but it is very good game. The well known (by now) first-person format lends itself well to Duke, and the game sucks you right in. Even more fun are networked games where you get to blow away your friends. The thing that bothers me most about this game is the inevitable 'Duke Nukem Movie'. All this publicity is bound to become more personally irritating to me than anything since 'The Dukes of Hazzard'." - Game Revolution review
The source code of Duke Nukem 3D v1.5, which uses the Build engine, was released as free software under the GPL on April 1, 2003. The game content remains under a proprietary license.
Duke Nukem 3D is often cited as one of the first videogames to merge irreverent humor and explicit sexual themes with gameplay, particularly within the first-person shooter genre. Several tongue-in-cheek jabs towards American consumerism, Hollywood culture, and sex in the media are prevalent.
