[b]There's talk that 3D Realms will open the doors for donations to develop an FPS called Earth No More.[/b]

3D Realms is back, and it's tackling yet another FPS after having to relinquish control of Duke Nukem Forever over to Take 2 Games and Gearbox Software in 2010. The news may be surprising to some given that the studio seemingly closed its doors after the Duke Nukem Forever fiasco. But the company lived on, and CEO Scott Miller even said in 2011 that the company had moved on to several smaller projects.

"Once DNF comes out we'll be definitely looking to invest into other projects, and maybe other up-n-coming teams who are blazing new trails on smaller platforms, like smart phones and XBLA," [url="http://duke4.net/news.php?extend.449"]he said in an interview[/url]. "We have a long history of investing in young, unproven teams, going way back to Id Software, and including other notables like Parallax Software (we were the first studio to invest in Descent), and Remedy Entertainment (Death Rally and Max Payne). So, we like that model and will keep doing it in the future. We seem to have a good eye for unproven talent waiting for some experienced guidance and hard-to-find funding."

One of its projects has surfaced on [url="http://gambitious.com/"]a new crowd-funding site called Gambitious[/url] which officially launched on Tuesday. As the name implies, this site is entirely dedicated to financing video game development, taking some of the burden off Kickstarter. The 3D Realms project is a first-person shooter called Earth No More

Really curious to see if the gaming community backs this after the well known debacle that was DNF. I am leaning towards they will not.

I hope no one falls for this after the DNF disaster. They should learn their lesson and stay dead!

No, sorry. They screwed up with Duke Nukem Forever, multiple times. They couldn't get one game off the ground after 14 years of back and fourth BS. I can't see myself giving that company another dime for another disappointment. Maybe if this was back when you were Apogee.

Sadly, people WILL be stupid enough to give these clowns money.

George Broussard is apparently not involved in this project, so it has a chance of getting finished.

I would say we need to give these guys another chance.

Through many difficulties and hardships, they almost succeeded in keeping DNF vaporware forever. I am sure they will succeed with this game. With our help they can... :shiftyninja:
