    I really wanted to play the first build of this game (used the Quake II engine then they switched over to Unreal). It's probably nothing like it originally was, though.

    As for someone owning it, 3D Realms or one of its employees probably has an archive of them somewhere. That's just my guess, though. Maybe they destroy it with the rest of the worthwhile goods [​IMG].

    When / if this game comes out, will it have really outdated graphics or did they restart it to look sort of current gen?

    just from the light reading on it over the years, it has switched engines at least more than twice.

    It's ready WHEN IT'S READY! ;)

    I really hope it doesn't turn into another Sonic Xtreme and just not come out.

    they might as well not, I mean it's been vaporware for so long that it's bound to be a huge letdown anyways.

    fuck it.

    Floating around where? Private collectors hands or your local bittorrent search engine?

    That's what I would like to know. I'd love to have a go at the older versions of this game.

    It's definitely not available to the public, it's in the hands of former employees, etc.

    Best example of Vaporware.

    From what i know they switched engine 3 or 4 times, then decided to make their own,....

    Duke Nukem Never!

    It's actually quite a shame, since Duke Nukem 3D was a hilarious game.

    i've heard they hired alot of artist & programmers less then a year ago. It looks to be in major production again.

    I mean look at prey. Thats been in development almost just as long and now finaly is comming out next year (looks fantastic too).

    yeah and also iirc they bought the physics engine meqon to use with the game less then a year ago. but now when meqon is bought by ageia they've probably switched over to theire engine now.
