Dukenukem3dGOG.com, the classic PC game store, is giving away Duke Nukem 3D free for a limited time. Duke Nukem 3D was one of the most revolutionary games of its time, pushing boundaries of tastefulness, obscenity and nudity within a video game.

This particular version is the Atomic Edition of the game includes bonus episodes, new weapons and enemies. It also supports a number of fan made mods.

Duke Nukem, the politically incorrect celebrity and ultimate alien ass kicker, defends Earth and its babes from alien invasion.

He is a can-do hero who realizes that sometimes innocent people have to die in order to save Earth, so accuracy of gun fire is not a real concern to him. This is the award winning game that helped define the FPS genre and introduced unparalleled interactivity and a talking main character.


Duke Nukem 3D is a scant 35MB and requires Snow Leopard or above. The game is available free through Friday December 14th..

mount the EDuke32 dmg downloaded above and copy everything in it to ~/Library/Application Support/EDuke32/

Go to your applications folder and do a show contents on Duke Nukem 3D. Navigate into Contents and then Resources. Do a show contents on Duke Nukem 3D.boxer. Navigate into C.Harddisk and copy the DUKE3D.GRP and DUKE.RTS files into the ~/Library/Application Support/EDuke32/ folder.

Now unpack the HRP zip file you downloaded. Copy everything inside the zip file (txt files, flat files, folders, etc) and paste it into the ~/Library/Application Support/EDuke32/ folder.

I never played this until it came out on iPad. Weird.

The cheesy graphics only served to make me miss Descent more.

I played this game as a kid. Man, the graphics look so horrible on a 27" screen.

2. "You're an inspiration for birth control"

3. "Hmm, don't have time to play with myself."
