Gregor Punchatz likes the potato. And on this Sunday, August 8th, 2021, he decided it had to go. This artist, who specializes in creating special effects, works on the make-up of RoboCop and Freddy 2
He was working for Gearbox in the late 2000s on a presentation designed to show the intentions of this third-person shooter that should have served as the original story for the adventures of the 3D Realms-created hero.
When I was working for Janimation Dallas’s befriended studio in 2008, Gearbox hired us to create a vertical cut (an anime version of the game) of the game “Duke Nukem Begins”, an origin story. from Duke.
I directed this project at Janimation and did a lot of the character development, including the design and modeling of Duke. We gave everything we had to make the greatest cinematics Janimation has ever created. But unfortunately we learned that the game was canceled due to legal problems with Duke Nukem.
“Duke Nukem Begins” was never made.
It devastated us as we thought it might help us compete with the biggest players in the game trailer market at the time.
Because it’s still a song I’m really proud of, I’m releasing it 13 years after it was written. The entire team that worked with me deserved him to go out into the wild.
I hope it somehow revives that version of the game by showing the world how awesome it would have been …
There is no need to tell him what happened to Duke Nukem Forever, who was released 15 years after it was announced.
However, we discover a TPS above the bases that would of course have tried to capitalize on the blood and the great spectacle. With a surprise towards the end of the video. No, not the Jetpack sequence or the Capitol Assault, but the presence of a multiplayer mode with Duke of other colors. With a little seriousness, it could have gotten interesting.
