George Broussard, travaillant chez 3D Realms, répond aux questions de certains fans du célèbre titre fantome Duke Nukem Forever. Alors que nous a-t-il inventé de nouveau ? Et si c'était vrai ?

« Could you possible give us an idea how far along the following parts of the game are in terms of pre-alpha, alpha, beta...etc?
Varying stages from beta to pre-alpha.

Have you decided on the format on which you'll release Duke Nukem Forever? CD and/or DVD/online delivery service?
No. Those decisions are made very close to launch. I think it's safe to assume DNF will be cd and dvd.

Do you think the interactivity you are incorporating into the game is actually slowing the development process down a bit because of the extensive nature of it?
Sure. It's part of making the game. Doing anything for it slows us down.

Do you think we'll be shocked by some of the levels of interaction in the game?
No idea. We are too close to judge things. We just hope it's fun.

How important are the "small details" to you? For example, when you talk about crazy interactivity
I'd say very important.

Have you decided on a "hype" timetable for DNF? 6 months? 1 year?
No. We really make this up as we go along and we don't plan it. We'll simply wake up one day and realize it's time to show it.

Most people think it's a safe bet we won't be hearing about DNF until after Prey's release to stores apparently in quarter 2 of next year. Any comment?
I wish we planned that far ahead.

The only thing I can figure is that this is a case of a desire for too much perfection.
That's not it at all. We certainly have very high standards, but the bottom line is that we had some issues and made some big mistakes and that cost us a few years of wasted development. We started fresh in very late 02 (really early 03) and have been on a pretty good pace since then. We are making progress and driving towards something.
This reallly is a case of just screwing up in a cosmic way early on, then just deciding to try to do it right.

Alors, cet entretien nous promet-il le fameux titre que nous attendons tous, qui fut victime de toutes rumeurs, ou bien est-ce encore une stratégie pour nous faire attendre et espérer dans le vide, seul l'avenir nous le dira.
