The amateur developers recreating Duke Nukem 3D using Unreal Engine 3 have created a new website, launched a podcast and invited interested fans to donate funds to help the project.

Interceptor Entertainment has a non-commercial licence from Duke Nukem Forever studio Gearbox Software to develop Duke Nukem 3D: Reloaded, which should consist of a three-episode single-player campaign and multiplayer modes when finished.

"We are going to stay true to Duke Nukem 3D, but we are also going to be integrating all the new gameplay elements from this century!" the developers promised in their first website update.

"That's why this is a 'revision'. Many of the locations, design decisions and gameplay elements behind Duke Nukem 3D, were limited because of technical limitations back in 1996."

One of the modern innovations Interceptor has in mind is a multiplayer beta, and the first website post noted that people who make donations will receive privileged access to any beta, as well as first access to the project itself and screenshots and other media in the meantime.
