Smile I Actually Got a Glimpse of DNF
This is true, whether you believe me or not, it is up to you.
I haven't been on here in forever; I just feel I need to share this with you guys. I'm not saying this to piss anyone off, or give false info, or get any hopes up.

My friend's brother works as a game developer; I'm not really sure what he does to be quite honest. Today we had a party at my friend’s house, and his brother showed me what he was working on. As it turns out, it was a Duke Nukem game. Subtitled in a folder called, “DUKE N. GBOX”
I'm not positive if it was DNF, but god damn was it a Duke game.

Here is the experience:

It all started out with a cut scene, there was no audio. Though, the animation was pretty well-done. Duke came out of a big pipe that was coming out of the side of a cliff. Water was pouring out of it, and Duke jumped off of the pipe and landed in the streets of a deserted town. It was night time, and the streets were flooded. Nothing else after that, and then we got to the game play

game play:

-There were no enemies in what I played, I guess it was just a small test run of the level, I'm not sure.
-Duke had his regular get up on, red shirt, jeans, holster, and black shades, he appears older though, he is wrinkled up, and his hair is white and he has a bit of a scruffy beard.
-It was NOT in 1st person view. It was over the shoulder, ala Gears of War.
-The deeper Duke got in the water, his animations changed, it was harder for him to walk, eventually, he'd go into a swim.
-He wasn't wielding a Desert Eagle. It was more of a golden colt 45 almost. (Not saying that there is no Deagle at all)
-There was CO-OP, but the 2nd player was the SAME duke that the 1st player was. Not sure if that is how it will be in the end.
-There is a cover system, much like Gears of War.
-You can carry only 4 weapons, a pistol/machine pistol, a two handed gun, a grenade, and a melee weapon.
-No more mighty boot(Atleast of what I’ve seen)
-Your cover will be destroyed or torn apart by incoming fire.
-There were collectables: Nude pictures, Green orbs, and cigars. Apparently they boost your ‘EGO’, which is what my friend’s brother said. Not sure what EGO means.
-You can climb into windows, and climb on ladders.

Map:

-It was extremely small. We started out just ******* around on the map, running in the water and swimming, punching one another, climbing ladders, killing ourselves, only because once you left this area, it was all black. The objective was to open up a gate. All you had to do was turn a wheel, and a big wooden door would open up.

Graphics:

Some of the textures weren't there, instead it was just purple and black boxes on the texture. And some just looked incomplete. The surroundings and Duke himself look like they came out of gears of war. Whether or not this is a bad thing is mainly up to the player. It looked nice, but I know others are looking for something more original. The water did look incredible though.

My left hand to god this is a true story, I only played for a half hour or so, I’ll answer any questions you have.

Cool story.

Can i ask one question, What was in the folder marked Duke N GBox? and how did he get the animations?

The EGO system sounds a lot like DNF from the Jace Hall show vid we saw.

Forgive me for being a little skeptical.

Understandable man. I'm not sure what was in the folder, I was a little tipsy to be quite honest. Though the folder had a bunch of different file types, mostly C#, and C++, and .MAX. I have no idea what they are, and what they are used for. Not even sure if that is the correct names.

CS respectively CPP, CXX would probably be the correct name for such files. .MAX is used for 3ds Max. Anyhow, I find it kinda strange that your friend's brother showed you this, shouldn't he be under an NDA?

It could be a test map to tweak physics, models, exteriors etc, before putting them in the final product,

I agree with Rösti, this would violate the non disclosure agreement and any employee caught with this mertial would be fired or charged considering this would be classed as stolen material.

Who knows, littlenick055's mates brother could be one of the "anonymous" sources that leaked the information in the first place, who knows with DNF

True, could be anything, could be a lie, could be a MOD, could be fan made, and yeah, could also be the real deal, but I'm not gonna think too hard on it, there are just too many variables

The options are basically the following:

1. This is true and what was shown was DNF(In which case it was probably a test level).
2. This is true and what was shown was Duke Begins.
3. This is true and what was shown was some unknown unannounced Duke game.
4. This is not true and a hoax on the side of the person doing the showing.
5. This not true and a hoax on the side of littlenick055.
6. This is not true but not a hoax either, just a misunderstanding on littlenick055's part and was actually some Duke Mod(Likely for UDK or something).

Anything I am missing? Personally I really hesitate to accuse people of lying or hoaxing so that leave options 1-3 and 6. Options 1-3 would almost certainly involve a broken NDA.

It seems to be PSP DNT - but I am sure they dont have any people outside Poland developing it right now. It looks more like some leaked version taken by former frontline employee but security there is pretty tight - and the development history looks nothing like that type of test level was needed.

For me it is a mod to **** with your head.

The Real Deal of what?

You didn't even describe a game. Could be a game developer's piecework which may or may not be sanctioned or used for anything, and may or may not be under NDA or it is a mod.

But the third possibility of it being a fabrication for your trolling only becomes more likely when you say you know it wasn't a mod. But I'll give you the benefit of the doubt and tell you that mods can be quite good games created by developers, looking nothing like the original, and ask you to look at
Temporal Cold War, an unfinished game made with Half Life 2.

Duke has no beart in DNF and why should he have one in Duke Nukem Begins and also look older? "Begins" sound more like a younger Duke to me.
