Finnish independent film studio HMCIndie released the above video yesterday. It is a trailer for their upcoming fan film based on Duke Nukem and bears the name of the legendary vaporware installment for that series. Apart from the awkward use of samples from Duke 3D, it's not half bad. Then again, anything that spends half its time showing an woman in a catholic schoolgirl uniform run from a man in a pig mask would have to be.
I remember the last time I saw a trailer for something called "Duke Nukem Forever." I remember the thrill, fear, hope and doubt that washed over me and the gradual heartbreak as we all came to realize that the game will never come. Those were painful, dark days.
Of course, the best way to pay tribute to the game's legacy would be to just release trailer after trailer with no plan to ever actually have a completed project. I certainly wouldn't begrudge HMCIndie if that were their idea.
