Anyone who has experienced Duke Nukem 3D undoubtedly has fond memories of the shrink ray. There's nothing quite as satisfying as shrinking an alien bastard and stepping on him with Duke's mighty boot. In Duke Nukem Forever, however, it looks like the shoe is on the other (gigantic) foot.
Duke Nukem Forever is a first-person shooter that has been in development since 1997 by the software developer 3D Realms. It is intended to be a sequel to the 1996 game Duke Nukem 3D, as part of the long-running Duke Nukem video game series. The game's development was directed by George Broussard, one of the creators of the original Duke Nukem game. Intended to be groundbreaking, it became infamous for its severely-protracted development schedule. The game has been the subject of much speculation, and has frequently been referred to as vaporware.
