Duke Nukem licensees

Group Description

This group contains official games featuring the character Duke Nukem. The character was conceived as a generic representation of the action hero stereotype, such as those portrayed by Arnold Schwarzenegger (whom Duke resembles visually) or the character Ash Williams from the Evil Dead series of movies. He has gradually evolved from a tough, yet silent Earth-saving hero to a primitive, fairly violent man known for his politically incorrect remarks. Humorous elements began with Duke Nukem II (1993), portraying Duke as the author of a book entitled Why I Am So Great and increased in later installments, with deliberately crude and offensive humor prevailing.

The first installments of the long-running franchise were 2D platform shooters developed by Apogee Software. With the 3D first-person shooter Duke Nukem 3D (1996) the series have achieved widespread popularity. Some of the subsequent independent installments (besides add-ons and level packs) however, favored third-person shooter gameplay with platforming elements or returned to the series' 2D platforming roots.

In September 2010, Gearbox Software announced that it owns the rights to the Duke Nukem character and franchise.

The character Duke Nukem was parodied in an episode of Die Redaktion (the Editorial Team), a monthly comedy video produced by the German gaming magazine GameStar. It was published on the DVD of issue 12/2010.
