EDuke32 is an awesome, free homebrew game engine and source port of the classic PC first person shooter Duke Nukem 3D— Duke3D for short—to Windows, Linux, Mac OS X, FreeBSD, several handhelds, your family toaster, and to your girlfriend's vibrator. We've added new renderers, hundreds of cool features and upgrades for regular players, and thousands of additional editing capabilities and scripting extensions for mod creators. EDuke32 is completely free, open source software.
