Atomic Edition of 1996 shooter free until Friday through Good Old Games.
As part of Good Old Games' holiday promotion, 1996 shooter Duke Nukem 3D is free through the digital distribution service. The "Atomic Edition" is up for grabs, and is available for free on PC and Mac through Friday, December 14.
Duke Nukem 3D is not the only title players can grab for free this week. Just yesterday, THQ announced that gamers can score a free PC copy of Metro 2033 by "Liking" the official Metro Facebook page.
The Atomic Edition of Duke Nukem 3D launched during November 1996 and includes an extra fourth episode, as well as new items and weapons. For more, check out GameSpot's review of Duke Nukem 3D: Atomic Edition.
Oh the fun times we had over serial LAN and dial-up, at home and school, with Duke, Doom, and ROTT. Good times. Good times.
Honestly speaking if you haven't found this game for free in some way shape or form by now in 2012, then there's something wrong with you.
Used to play this back in the old modem days when you would call someones house directly and play over the phone line - good times :) Also worked on numerous addons for this and shadow warrior. It's why minecraft is so popular, basically a level designer like BUILD aimed at the masses, its good to see imo, creating stuff is very satisfying :)
Fun fact: if you go to the credits screen and check the names of the map designers, you'll see a familiar name among them.
one of the most innovative and fun fps games of all time. Quake was great, had better tech but nothing matches Duke 3d's levels.
This game puts Duke Nukem Forever to shame, its a superior product on every aspect.
@26whitewolf Exactly, Duke Nukem Forever has a massive identity crisis, it doesn't know whether it wants to be CoD or Doom.
Its not 'Good Old Games' anymore, its just GOG, with no meaning behind it. They changed when they started releasing newer games.
I grabbed this yesterday, thank you gog & thank you to Game Fly for the free pc download of Bioshock a few weeks back.
by the way gog.com are having 50% off on all their titles for X-mas
so if you want some awesome indie games like giana sisters twisted dreams
or heroes of might and magic series for 50% off you can have it!
check gog they got all sort of awesome titles annnnd the best part of it
it's 100% DRM-FREE so you could install the game on many computers as you like and no need for online conection
it's like when you actually own the game
you can even back up the game on a usb driver or even a disk!
people really need to know know gog.com
it's also trying to be full mac compatible (you can play the witcher 1 and 2 on mac via gog.com no problem)
all hail DRM-FREE revolution
"It's time to kick ass and chew bubble gum, and I'm all out of bubble gum"
One liners like this is why Duke Nukem was the man back in his prime.
Wish games these days were as fun as this was! It seems developers are hell bent on pushing system limits then just making fun experiences these days.
Just wanted to say that all of you who download this should take a look at JonoF's Duke Nukem 3D Port (JFDuke3D) which enhances the engine a hell of a lot.
After you have installed the GOG version, grab the DUKE3D.GRP file out of the directory and you are good to go with JFDuke3D. The program is open-source and completely safe, its based off the original source code of Duke Nukem when that was released to the public awhile back.
The website is: http://www.jonof.id.au/jfduke3d
Now all I want is for whoever still holds the licence to release the source-code for Shadow Warrior and Blood as well so the same project can be adapted for those Build engine games too.
GOG is awesome. Not only do they have a ton of PC classics for cheap, but it's making the youngsters stare at DOS configuration screens and scratch their heads. Back in MY day, we had to know what port our sound card was using, dammit!
@maxwell97 good old times! I loved to tweak autoexec.bat and config sys to get a game running. Thats nothing for todays noobs
its only ever shooters that are free recently metro 2033 got made free if youve got a facebook account..
@jessie82 Might I suggest you go check out the current Humble Indie Bundle. $6.00 will get you Saints Row: The Third, Metro 2033, and a few other games that are pretty good. It benefits charity (depending on you) and you get the soundtracks.
I have fond memories of playing Duke mods and making levels. The stuff the level editor let you do allowed lots of creativity.
Unlike most people, my expectations for Duke Nukem Forever was extraordinary high, and as a result, I had some fun with that game. With Borderlands 2 done and Aliens: Colonial Marines almost out the door, I'm hoping Gearbox is getting ready for Duke Nukem 5.
I already own Duke Nukem 3D Atomic Edition, via GOG. So rocks. I still gotta get used to using arrow keys and no mouselook though.
I grabbed Metro 2033 for free off Steam (via the facebook thingy) yesterday.
Looks like a damn good Holiday Season for gamers this year.
duke nukem 3d finally , my disc version didnt work w windows 7 64 bit and this one does ,, so good ,
IMO Duke Nukem 3D was a great game when it came out, compared to Doom II. The level design was much more advanced. You had multiple story buildings, you could fly and the environments were great.
works fine on mine.
well ... what can I say .... I download ... I have ZIP file, I exctract, I click the bat.file , give me 4 option but no one work ...
If I wouldn't have paid $1 for Metro already (Humble Bundle) I would be all over that deal. Looks like I should have waited as that is the only reason I spent a $1 in the first place. Oh well, at least it all went to charity.
@raahsnavj Dude, it's just $1. How poor can you be?
@raahsnavj Dude since you have it, play Company of Heroes!
