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..

30" ACD never looked so bad.

Buy the download from GOG

Grab Eduke32 universal here: http://eduke32.com (click on the mac icon)

Grab the Duke4 HRP Standalone file from here: http://hrp.duke4.net/download.php


Install the game from GOG.

Go to ~/Library/Application Support/

Make and EDuke32 folder.

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.

It will now look something like this:



Run the EDuke32 app and set the video mode to something nice and big in 32bpp.



Voila. Playable game.

PS: Thanks to the whole Duke Community. If you get a kick out of it donations to the linked parties are/would be appreciated, etc etc.

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.

1. -> 2. -> 3. -> 4.

1. "Your face, your ass, - what's the difference?!"

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

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

4. "You wanna dance?"
