It is funny, that the text-formatted files have everywhere strings like "dukegame" or "dukemd" in it. Wasn't this originally intended to be "Duke Nukem Mass Destruction"? And the standard enemy is exactly that one from Duke Nukem 3D. No problem, as long as there is no danger of a new lawsuit because of the duke-enemies...
Bombshell and Duke might still be living in the same fictional universe. And maybe, one or two centuries in the future 3DRealms/Interceptor and Gearbox might smoke the peace pipe, reunite the worlds and Duke and Shelly might battle together like it is their original fate.
