Former 3D Realms Owners Disagree Over Duke Nukem Forever Guilt

Apogee, which also went through 3D Realms at the same time, published several successful and super-influential games, but is best known for its biggest disaster: the 15-year development of Duke Nukem Forever, which was eventually completed by Gearbox. After footage of a 2001 version of the game leaked this week, Apogee co-founders Scott Miller and George Broussard talked a bit about what “killed the original 3D Realms” – and former high school friends are pointing out the finger to each other.

Miller, who recently resumed publishing games under the Apogee name, said in a brief blog post today that he didn’t work on the Duke Nukem Forever project, but as a co-owner of the company, he had “a good view of the issues” that turned it o into a “money pit”. These problems, Miller claims, were that the studio was “understaffed by at least 50%”, didn’t have “a good development roadmap”, and kept restarting the game to switch to new 3D technology, “causing massive delays over and over again.” . .”
