Duke Nukem: Manhattan Project Announced

Garland, TX - February 16, 2001

ARUSH Entertainment, Sunstorm Interactive Partner to Bring Duke Nukem to Episodic Format 

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. - March 20, 2001 - Take cover New York! Duke is back! ARUSH Entertainment, Internet publisher of episodic video games, will release the newest Duke Nukem online adventure for the PC, Duke Nukem: Manhattan Project, this fall.

Duke’s new saga pits the wisecracking, politically incorrect action hero in a battle to save the Big Apple. He faces his original archrival, the nefarious scientist Dr. Proton who is hell-bent on world domination. The third-person game uses a totally new 3D approach and retains the traditional Duke Nukem over-the-top attitude. The star takes on the worst mutants New York can muster before a final showdown against the wily doctor.

Developed by Sunstorm Interactive, Manhattan Project will be distributed by ARUSH over the Internet, one episode at a time. The first episode will be offered free to gamers on most major Internet portals and through www.arushgames.com.

"Manhattan Project will pack all the action and personality expected from Duke Nukem," Jim Perkins, president, ARUSH Entertainment, said. "This title will be true to the Duke Nukem tradition with familiar humor, weaponry and creatures that will appeal to longtime fans and casual gamers alike." Manhattan Project reunites Duke with one of his previous developers, Sunstorm Interactive. Sunstorm first gained notoriety with critically praised expansions for popular first-person games Duke Nukem 3D and Blood. The developer has created several Duke Nukem expansion packs, including Duke It Out in D.C., Duke Extreme and Duke Nukem: Life’s a Beach. ARUSH is collaborating with Sunstorm on an initial set of eight episodes for the new action-adventure.
