Gearbox seeking to credit everyone who has worked on Duke Nukem Forever

Gearbox Software is on the hunt for anyone who has ever worked on one of the umpteen iterations of Duke Nukem Forever. From illustrators to early developers, long lost publishers and mo-cap strippers, the studio is seeking to add a credit in DNF for everyone who has had a hand in the title's long and belabored development history.

Sadly, nabbing a part of DNF infamy isn't as easy as submitting your name and hoping they don't do a background check. Gearbox has set up a dedicated website for the promo which makes potential honorees prove their association to The Duke before being accepted. And no, "complained on 3DRealms' forums for 7 years" does not count as a contribution.

This is an interesting opportunity and a respectable move on Gearbox's part. If you know anyone that fits the bill, please make sure to pass this info along. Also, if you know anyone that would be willing to stand in as a fake studio reference, by all means email me personally.

    They'd probably add a credits mini-game. I have a feeling.

    That's awesome, it's nice to see a company that wants to make sure everyone is acknowledged, no matter how small their part was.

    Well that's awesome of them. Gearbox FTW!
  • LTS - February 24, 2011 9:30 p.m.

    Credits will be longer than the game!
  • Jesse1066 - February 24, 2011 9:24 p.m.

    I hope the credits have awesome music!

    This should be the standard for every game. No offense to any devs but I would credit the pizza delivery guy who brought lunch to the office 5 days a week. Go out of your way to thank everyone who might've had a hand in the game. Long credits yeah but most gamers won't sit through them anyway. But you made the attempt to give credit to those that helped make the game.

    Hope there is a skip function.
  • BurntToShreds - February 24, 2011 9:16 p.m.

    That's pretty damn nice of them.
  • Fatbot - February 24, 2011 9:14 p.m.

    Now THERE'S a credit reel where players deserve an achievement/trophy for watching.
  • Redeater - February 24, 2011 9:14 p.m.

    Wow these credits will run longer then guitar hero!
  • PistonFistin - February 25, 2011 12:04 a.m.

    God damn, they'd better have something cool in the backgroud... I always watch the credits when I compltete a game, it's part of my ritual. Extra cool points for Gearbox.
