2011’s Duke Nukem Forever famously languished in development hell for 15 years before release. Its tumultuous cycle, which began in 1997, spawned several builds and demos by original developer 3D Realms. Today, footage of one of those early versions of the game has appeared online.

As spotted by GameSpota 4Chan user known as x0r uploaded footage of a 1-minute, 20-second slice of gameplay from a 2001 demo of the game. The video’s authenticity was confirmed on Twitter by Duke Nukem co-creator George Broussard, who served as one of the lead designers on Forever with 3D Realms during its long development. According to Broussard, he has no idea how the footage resurfaced but shot down hopes of a complete, playable build by describing these demos as a “smattering of barely populated test levels.”

However, the leaker claims to have access to the demo’s source code and plans to release it and a level editor sometime in June.

The demo shows Duke mowing down alien-infected SWAT soldiers in a strip club while cracking his signature quips. You can spot an early version of the Ego meter that would appear in the final game (where it essentially functioned as a shield). The footage also shows off a quick-toggle weapon menu for changing equipment on-the-fly.

Another short clip showed a first-person motorcycle riding segment. The no-frills clip is exactly what it sounds like.

Duke Nukem Forever received less-than-stellar reviews upon release (we gave it a 6.75 out of 10) and is the final Duke Nukem game to date. The ill-fated title is ultimately most notable for having one of the longest development cycles in gaming history, The only significant sign of life the series has shown in recent years was the 2018 announcement of a Duke Nukem movie with John Cena reportedly starring. However, that too has quietly faded into its own development hell, assuming it’s still happening at all.
