BAFTA Public Event: Randy Pitchford Q & A – Duke Nukem Forever

DukeNukemForever_LogoThe latest BAFTA public event features a Q&A with Randy Pitchford about Duke Nukem Forever. After a long and possibly the most documented development of a game ever, Duke Nukem Forever is finally going to be in the hands of gamers from 10th June 2011. Randy Pitchford is the President and CEO of Gearbox Software who are putting the finishing touches to the game after taking over development from 3D Realms who went bankrupt and closed down in 2009.

I heard Randy talk about the Duke’s troubled development before getting some hands-on time with Duke Nukem Forever back in Oct 2010 during the London Games Festival 2010. He’s got some great stories to tell :-)
