Duke Nukem Manhattan Project on XBLA June 23rd
Hope you guys like the game. It originally came out in 2002 and at the time was PC only. We pushed for to be on PS2 but couldn't get it done. This game should have always been on a console with a controller and it plays very well on the 360. I'm glad we were able to bring it to the 360.

The original development team, Sunstorm, did a great job nailing the Duke Nukem vibe and attitude. I've always considered this the best externally created Duke Nukem game.

The trial version is pretty long and we fell back to our shareware roots in giving you a lot of game to evaluate. It goes beyond the normal little trial demos that developers give you these days.

I hope you guys check it out and enjoy it. There should be a video you can watch in the dashboard, but here are links if you've never seen the game: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kox5J6oATJ4

So, was it supposed to be on PS2 ONLY, but you couldn't get it done and you decided for a PC release instead?

Thanks for getting this game onto XBLA. I think there should be a separate forum for the game. It will help eliminate clutter.

No, they wanted a separate PS2 release after the original PC version came out.

It was PC only at first but was pretty clear that it'd make a great console game and that was a better home for it than PC, which in 2002 was the height of FPS and nobody was much interested in 3D side scrollers.

Anyway, I still prefer the PC version, because I can play it in stereoscopic 3D. *And* use the Xbox 360 controller, which, I agree, is perfect for it.

Glad it's coming to a console, honestly. I have it on PC and it controls fine more or less, but I can see myself having much more fun with it on a console. It's sidescrolling platformer for one, and those always handle better on a console for me personally. Gotta get some points in the Account

Also George are there any plans for new themes/gamerpics? Since the old Xbox dashboard has been updated to the "New Xbox Experience" design, my old Duke 3D theme is pretty much cut in half with that big silver dome on the bottom of the screen. It's also slightly stretched out, horizontally. Good news is I can still see most of his upper body.

God, I really wish they'd put in the option to revert it back to the blade dashboard

Nice. I have a feeling this will finally get the attention it deserves now

Off topic: I see you've been playing K&L recently on your Xbox pic. Been playing online at all? If you have, I'm surprised I haven't ran into you what with the small community that's still playing. Still trying to net those online achievements until the sequel comes out.

On a side note, I had played the hell out of the demo. Then I got the full game and played the hell outta that.
I need to get in touch with prowler45 again about the editing site.

100 points short. Damn Microsoft and their uneven point bundling structure. I'll hopefully have the required points all ready by tomorrow.

Couldn't be happier to help out and throw my money at another quality duke game. Let's just hope the money it makes helps a good development cause.

I'm actually quite excited about Manhattan Project as I missed out on the experience the first time it was released on PC. Looks like it is back to good old shareware for me today.

I already unlocked the Duke Nukem avatar t-shirt!

I like it! The controls are great! I didn't even have to get used to them. The menu and leaderboards are just like Duke3D XBLA. Same font, spinning nuke symbols, etc. Heh heh, no sign of any DNF screenshots so far. I'll finish beating it and unlocking all achievements later today. Been up all night waiting for it. Time for bed.

Does Canada get the updates later in the day?

[EDIT]: Now it's up! Downloading the trial, I'll have to nip out and pick up a points card after. I see it's the same size roughly as the PC version. I've always loved the fact that i can keep all my Duke PC games on a single 1gb usb stick.

My controlls are nothing like that. You do have multiple control options in the settings menu.

I'm not having any issues at all.

I am a little disspointed that there is not any unlockable content outside of avatar items. It would of been nice to have concept art and stuff like that like in the Duke Nukem 3D release for Live however I do understand the game was not developed by 3D Realms so that content probably isn't readily available.

Wow...

George wasn't lying went he said this should have aways been on consoles. I am able to play this so much better than on the pc. Once I got my health over 100, I don't think it ever dropped below that number because I was kicking so much ass at such a faster pace and with much better precision. The controls are excellent now that I'm able to shoot using the right trigger, which wasn't compatible on the pc version. Truly great port indeed.

Multiple means 2 options sadly. I hope they can patch in custom controls. I'm used to controls styled like Earthworm Jim. A=Jump, X=Shoot etc.

I never played it. Like George said, FPS games were where it was at.

Yes, Zero Hour is badass. I like both of them about the same. IMO, they are the only third party Duke games worth getting.

The XBLA version's widescreen is far superior, it adds more at the sides rather than cropping the top and bottom to fit the screen. Finally getting used to firing with the trigger.
