    This will definitely help Linux gaming. Especially if the quality of the updated OpenGL version is better than the old VESA (super sharp high-resolution) graphics mode that the original had. I can't wait to play it!

    ID was not involved in any of the Duke Nukem games.

    Manhattan Project might be something they'd port though.

    The steam version can plays in classic mode via DOSbox, as well as a OpenGL rendere.

    Ironically the eduke32 Gentoo ebuild bug report has been seeing a lot of activity this past week and I think it may hit the Portage tree very soon. I think it looks better than this new port.
