EDuke32 is an actively developed port of the classic, Duke Nukem.
Duke Nukem 3D was a first person shooter developed by 3D Realms and released in 1996.
EDuke32 has many advantages over all of the other versions of Duke Nukem 3D.
- Runs at incredibly high resolutions such as 3072×2304.
- Choose between two different hardware accelerated OpenGL renderers, or the classic, warped software mode.
- Plagman’s brand new “Polymer” renderer as a replacement for Ken Silverman’s “Polymost” renderer, adding:

- 3D models.
- Realtime Shadows.
- Per-pixel dynamic lighting adds to the atmosphere of the game.
- WSAD + mouse control.
- Quake-style console.
- User-friendly map editor called Mapster32.
- Runs the High Resolution Pack with support for all features.
