Back in early 2015 we learned that there would be a collection of games heading to Android in the near future called Duke Nukem 3D: Hail to the King Collection which was being developed by Voidpoint. Since the initial story we followed the development of said collection of games, including having a great interview with Richard “TerminX” Gobeille of Voidpoint. However, now we have some bad news to report, which is this collection of games has now been canceled.

The creator of Minecraft took to Twitter yesterday to address the free-to-play style of monetization and comments from another game develop, George Broussard, who made Duke Nukem 3D among other titles. The whole thing escalated quickly and actually started to get a little heated it seems.
After ten years in development hell the world was graced with Duke Nukem Forever. It was a misogynistic, racist, and pedantic sub-par shooter that made critics wonder what the wait was for. The criticism of Duke Nukem Forever is a fantastic reflection of how much our culture has matured over the years. Violence against women is no longer a taboo subject relegated only to feminists and those brave enough to speak out against it. We’ve come a long way baby!
We have dug up some additional details regarding the upcoming Duke Nukem 3D: Hail to the King Collection from Voidpoint that will be landing onto Google Play sometime in Q1 2015. As we mentioned in our original article, Voidpoint hasn’t come up with a specific price point yet for the collection but we do now have confirmation that there will not, at all, be any IAPs. We did mention that the entire collection would be included in the launch but considering the amount of games in it, we wanted to make sure it would be available for one price.
Yesterday was the day that Duke Nukem 3D was released onto PC back in 1996. That was 19 years ago and to celebrate this anniversary, Voidpoint will be bringing Duke Nukem 3D: Hail to the King Collection to Android this Spring. This is largely thanks to the fact that Voidpoint has acquired commercial rights to the original 1996 PC game Duke Nukem 3D, the expansions ‘Duke It Out in D.C,’ Duke Caribbean: Life’s a Beach,’ ‘Duke: Nuclear Winter’ as well as the N64’s original Duke Nukem 64 and PlayStation’s original Duke Nukem: Total Meltdown from 1997.
The Green Throttle gaming system, which consists of a controller and an application that basically turns the Android device it is installed on into a console system, has had six new games added to its catalog of supported titles. This includes the ever popular Duke Nukem 3D game for those of you who just like to shoot stuff… a lot of stuff.
Even though Duke Nukem 3D for Android has been out for some time now, if you haven’t picked it up for whatever reason but have wanted to then you may be in luck today. Amazon’s free app of the day today is the bubble gum chewing, ass kicking hero’s game from Machineworks Northwest.
In a short but sweet sale Machineworks Northwest has decided to put Duke Nukem 3D on sale for the low price of free for a couple of days. Although, as from our understanding of the Android Market, you are not supposed to be able to drop the price to free before raising it back up but a lot of developers seem to be doing it lately.
MachineWorks Northwest has told our friends over at PocketGamer that they are working on currently making Duke Nukem 3D optimized for the Xperia Play which should make anyone who owns that device and the game pretty happy. However, there is even more good news for all people playing this game.
In mid-October we reported on Tapjoy teaming up with Machineworks Northwest to bring an official port of Duke Nukem 3D to Android. Well the wait is now officially over and your favorite ass kicking, gum chewing, stripper loving hero is now available on the Android Market.
